I have no idea why i got those three (amongst jagged) on this pic
Motiv? No idea why.
Color? See motiv.
Level? The few verticals visible are as they should be.
Any pointers or ideas on this one would bee appreciated.
have a read of that Peter...might help you with the motive reason!
Quoting Cosec59 (Reply 12): I am fairly sure it's the Austrian Airlines tail in the background that has caused this.
not sure there is anything in the shot that comes close to the motive explanation on the rejections page. it only mentions foregrounds, not background...obviously you can't control what's happening in the background of a photo at a busy airport...if they start rejecting for motive due to backgrounds then we may aswell stop shooting.
a true friend is someone who sees the pain in your eyes, while everyone else believes the smile on your face.
Not shooting but uploading maybe. It really sucks when you get motive and no explanation for it as well as for the ridiculous colour rejection.
Guess this shot just goes into the "no reasonable explanation available" bin as many others from many uploaders lately.
Thanks to those who took their valuable time for answering here.

Looking at the rejected DC-3 shot, I wonder, how you guys can tell, if that photo is level or not. The only vertical lines I see, are some posts of the fence behind the aircraft, and don't tell me, they are always level ....
Centering is another issue mentioned: As far as I can see, it is centered from engine to engine (without taking the props into account), which makes perfect sense, as they are far more prominent, than the props in this photo.
Anyway, my CHF 0.02 worth

The mainwheels are below the plane of the camera, yet the port mainwheel is closer to the camera therefore it should appear slightly lower in the photo than the starboard mainwheel. A question of perspective.
This is not a rule to be followed for its own sake: it explains why, in my eyes (and those of others who have posted here), the photo looks like it needs slight cw rotation.
Quoting PUnmuth@VIE (Reply 19): "Presence of modern aircraft spoils "retro" look, thus the "motiv" for b&w is unwarranted"
I have to say I can see the sense in this. Once you realise that's a jetliner's tail it kind of ruins the effect for me.
