Evening all,

Back from MAN on Tuesday I took my camera out on the flight home. Took quite a few and I have picked this out for critique. Is this good enough? I feel its boarder line but I have never edited shots like this before and i'm not sure.

Oh and thanks to Flybe for keeping their windows clean and scratch free!

Hi Colin.

The shot does nothing for me. The angle is wrong and there's nothing on the ground that stands out as worth looking at. I guess this is the pick of the bunch if it's the one you chose, any others?

Thats pretty much it i'm afraid. I wasnt sure about angles, wasnt sure how to go about the shot. Thanks for the quick reply

Hiya Colin,

I like it from a detail standpoint, namely the stencilling on the engine and the nice sugary clouds on the left, but I'm not sure about the composition. Ideally, I'd have liked to have had a wider view, with the engine similarly placed and sized, but with more of it visible.

That subjectivity aside, It's possible it would make it into the DB.

Cheers

It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

It doesn't seem level to me, and there's not a heck of a lot to be looking at. It is still a nice photo though (I kind of like it actually) and quality wise I'd say your fine.

Nice detail and good quality however motive-wise not really optimal.
If possible I'd make it a vertical shot with the engine visible as a whole:

Hi Colin.

I think Ian is trying to rival Jeff for the most 'up front' comments in threads  wink .

For me I think this shot will fall foul on motive grounds, I am afraid. Two things are against you, I feel (though I would agree that the shot does not look level - it would need CCW rotation) - the engine/prop combination look awkwardly cropped, and there is little of interest out of the window either - at least for this site. But it is the former that I think would be the killer blow.

All the best.

Paul

Nah...no-one's that harsh.  Silly Sorry I should have explained. Basically there's nothing of interest in the shot. It would have looked much better if you'd have included the whole engine cone in the shot on top of the fact that it's not level.
