Hello again, everybody,

I need some advice on this tail shot:


Will it be rejected right away for MOTIVE, as the tail is cropped to the right when I tried to center the harpwoman-motive?

Or COMMON, as there is nothing spectacular to it?

QUALITY and so on?

Any advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,

Hi Frippe,

mmm hard one to call. The crop isnt great as you havent included the entire tail. For a better crop, motive might be ok. Quality wise, its a little too dark and soft. Perhaps a re-edit? If you can crop wider and get the whole tail in, go for it. There are some nice tail shots in the database.

Hope i've help and havent knocked your confidence!

Hi Frippe,

I think you should make a wider crop. You have a good chance that this one is being rejected on motive.

Did the transavia photo's make it ?

Thanks to you, Colin and Martin, so much!

And no risk, Colin, you phrase it so gentlemanly, that my confidence is still there. A pleasure to read such nice language, I think!

I will remove it now and follow your advice with a better framing in view finder another time instead of risking a rejection now.

And good memory you have, Martin, and thanks for asking, but the all white Transavia was not good enough, even after all advice and all help. I guess it was more difficult with a less than perfect Transavia as there already is a large number of them in db.

Thanks - and be assured I will be back with more requests for help shortly,
