Hi all,

I would like to open the discussion we often have in regards to the section specified above.

I have just had 2 shots rejected, one which I suspect will go too, as I selected this section rightfully with the shots in question. In the comments I put the exposure time used, to help with the screening process, but still they were rejected. admittedly, the shots came up surprisingly well considering the light.

So basically I personally think, that the section needs a bit of a re-structure in a way that I would be leaning towards having it just for shots taken in darkness like the following:

As it stands currently, I just don't think its working correctly.

Any suggestions anyone?

Both your shots were not rejected for a wrong category. So what's your question regarding Night/Dusk?Dawn?

This post sums up the current night / dawn / dust catagory selection:

Clarification On "Dark" Rejections (by Clickhappy May 12 2007 in Aviation Photography)

I must admit I've fallen faul with this catagory a few times recently and the explanation on the upload page can be a little misleading compared to the actual use of the catagory as explained in the post above. Maybe an update is needed just stating night?

How can you expect people to comment without showing them your rejected images?

1. My pictures that were mentioned above, I cannot show, they have gone from my list as I was toying with an appeal, decided no, so now gone. I'm not on my usual computer so still have no access to them.
2. My pictures really have no bearing on the discussion at hand. I have been in discussion with 2 screeners re my photos mentioned, turns out they were from a different reasons.

So as mentioned, my photos have no bearing on what I was hoping to discuss. I am basically putting a suggestion out there for the Dark section to be made strictly for dark shots. Not right on dusk or dawn, just plain dark. Maybe it would work out a little better I don't know. That is what I was hoping to discuss.

Hi Martin,

The problem as I see it with what you are suggesting is where do you draw the line between what is "dark" and "dusk" or "dawn" etc. It kinda opens another can of worms we can do without, although I see where you're coming from.

And if you have simply a "night" category, what happens then to all the other excellent shots that were taken at dusk or dawn?

The only shot I have uploaded as such is this, taken after sunset, although you could be forgiven for thinking it was simply in poor light:

I think although the process isn't flawless, we have to give the screeners some leeway to judge what is acceptable and what isn't, even if it might not always be to our liking.

Please try and post the shots though if you get chance.

Regards,

Tim.



Obviously missing something....
