When I submitted these two, I had some doubts about Number 2, but I thought Number 1 one was pretty "safe" (shows how much I know!!!). Can anyone guess why it was Number 1 that was rejected? It's similar to the other one and, in many ways, the better picture in my opinion (better colors, you can see more of the engine, etc.).

Thanks in advance,

Tony

PS Yes, it only got motiv.
PPS No, they are not double (different date, different flight, different plane).

Tony,
Neither of these photos work for me.  half

This is only a guess, the one accepted shows a village and the one rejected does not?

This first one, you've cropped in a way that the engine is not distracting.

Your rejected one, the engine is distracting.

Also, with the accepted shot, the photo is focused on the view, the rejected seems that the engine is more the focus rather than the view.

I thought aircraft and their parts were the focus on this website....

I like this explanation. I looked at both pics and the second one is just a better crop and nicer to look at.

Hi guys,

Thanks for the feedback.

Clearly, we have our own tastes! I actually like number 1 more, as it shows more of the engine.

I agree with Tommy: in this case, in my opinion, more plane is good. I really have a hard time understanding what's the best motiv for windows shots: sometimes screeners complain that I include too little plane, sometimes they complain that I include too much plane. Go figure...

Regards,

Tony

True but number 1 doesn't show the landscape nearly as nicely as the second pic does.

In my opinion the first photo was rejected because you have two pieces of the aircraft jutting out of different points of the image (and the two pieces are actually connected, but not connected in your photo). The engine is at the bottom and the wing above it with landscape inbetween. The accepted photo shows the engine connected to the wing and it just flows better and frames the suject with a more pleasant framing.

This again, shows that at the end, like everything, it's a matter of personal taste.

I wonder what would the comments had been had they accepted number 1 and rejected number 2.

I somehow do not think so.

In fact, the last one was in the same batch of uploads as the two ones in question.

That wouldn't be surprise me, actually. The light was not as good in number 2 as it was in number 1.
