Level Horizon Question

Hey,

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?

Thanks,
Adam

Hey Adam,

I think that angle is fantasic. Love the shot and keep up the work. Just great!

As for acceptance here, well it should be!

The angle on the nose gear just caught my eye!!

While I can't judge the quality wityhout seeing the original, I do not see anything wrong with the angle and would love to see this shot accepted.

Hi Adam,

Nice shot! Just one small thing that might be a problem is the aspect ratio. A.net seems to like crops at 3:2 or 4:3, whereas this one looks to be in the region of 2:1.

Regards,

Tim.



Obviously missing something....

Yes definately upload the shot. There is no problem with "angles" with creative A2A shots, especially when the actual horizon is not visible such as your photo.

You'll have to loose the copyright across the middle before you upload however. It's far too distracting and large for A.net style.

And I wouldn't worry about the aspect ratio of the image. It looks fine the way it is.

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.

Hey guys,

Thanks for the comments so far. I need to work on cropping the shots as I take them to get a better aspect ratio.

I'd still like to hear from a crew member though regarding a.net policy toward these types of photos.

Thanks,
Adam

Ok, just to help you a little more, not all airplane, airliners included have to fly level or have a level horizon.

So much depends on the circumstances of the photo, such as this.
