I have had a ton of pics rejected, I know some have been sloppy, but now the new reason I have had pics rejected is due to bad distance. Here is a pic that I thought was awesome and would have been accepted. Tell me what you think.

It is bad distance and maybe centre.
The pic not cropped tightly enough around the main aircraft of the shot, thats why its been rejected. I see what you were trying to do here by having the aircraft off centre and showing some other aircraft of the fleet in the one shot. I like the shot and its looks affective but not anet material. Try a tighter crop around the main aircraft featured, making sure its in the centre of the shot and give it another go if you wish. But watch for jaggies and quality. Use a tad less sharpening and it should be ok.

Clickhappy thanks for the response, but I have to disagree. I personally think this is a great ramp shot. It not only shows the pushback sequence, but a terminal shot as well. The pole is a ramp illumination pole. That's uncontrollable. If I had to choose out of the 475 pics i have in the db, I would put this one up there as one of my favs. Would this pic be accepted if I categorized it as an airport overview?

I don't see how everyone's gonna give Brad so much crap about this photo. I think his questioning this rejection is totally alright. We all see ramp shots like this one all the time on a.net. I just looked through the top of last week and there are a couple of photos in there, that portray planes even further in the distance. I'm not saying they should not have gotten accepted and rejected for baddistance instead but I'm saying, they need that distance because the photograph is supposed to show more than just a single plane, just like in Brad's photo here. When I was at MCO this past Tuesday I took the exact same shot he did, and I even thought it might be A.net material as well. I guess all I'm trying to say is that constructive criticism would be more welcome by Brad.

Hey guys, thanks for all the input. I do like the criticism, hopefully it will make me take better shots. The only thing I don't really get is the hubbub about the ramp pole. It's just one of the things that unfortunatly, comes with the territory. This shot was taken from the terminal window, so it coming out this well was a shocker for me.
Sebastian I took this shot April 2nd. Thanks for the post.
