I've got a question for the crew.
I recently did some air2air photography. I tried to get creative on a lot of the shots to the point where the photo was obviously not going to be level with the horizon, but definately suggested a 'Paul Bowen' style.
Here's an attached photo that shows what I'm talkin about.
My question: Does A.net accept this type of motive? Or, ist there a certain degree off level to which the photo must be taken so that it is no longer subjected to the horizon rules here at anet?

Quoting Kukkudrill (Reply 5): On what basis do you say this? As far as I know a.net requires photos to have an aspect ratio of between 3:2 and 4:3.
I've personally got accepted images in the DB with ratios at 1.2:1 which is almost square and other images that are near 1:2 and quite a horizontal crop. It's a guideline, not an absolute. Each image is judged individually.
Unless the "rules" have changed again, and gotten even more anal and such images would no longer be allowed. And that would be a stupid decision.

Well, unusual aspect ratios are specifically mentioned as grounds for a size rejection. If the screeners are being flexible that's great, but I wouldn't advise others not to worry about the aspect ratio because it's still up to the screener's discretion whether or not to bend the rule for a given photo.
