If you block the landing gear with something rare like a Ferrari, could that get past the Motive?

Maybe! At least it has at least once:

A closer crop would work better though.
Great shot anyway; still reflecting on which dreammachine I'd rather call mine!  Wink

Not in this instance i'm afraid. Not only did you block the gear, you cut off the whole rear of the a/c.

I do have a different angle, but there are some people in the photo (not blocking either the car or the aircraft). I found out today for the first time that people, en masse, are very rude and ignorant to photographers standing around. I stood there for 30 minutes or so waiting for nobody to be in frame to get that one side angle shot (with some help from some reenactors shooting an MG-42... everyone ran to it to watch).

I actually had that shot in mind when I saw the Ferrari.

Here is the best shot I can crop, though it has people in it, and that may be against the rules...

There is an option for nose profiles. It happens to be my specialty. :P

Hi Whappeh,

I would go for something like this, but still not sure if it works....


Cheers,

Kevin

I think that looks great Kevin. I'm going to crop again and probably go with that. I'm still waiting to hear from someone higher up about the car blocking the aircraft, though.

Hi Brendan,

Don't know if I'm 'high enough' for my opinion to matter, but for what it's worth here it is.
Generally speaking, for me when there is more than one 'main subjects' in one frame, the balance between each other has to be almost perfect for the entire frame to work. And since we are talking about aviation here, the main aircraft subject should not be blocked by the other subject unless for a very specific reason.
Personally, I would think your first try highlights the Ferrari and 'happens' to have an aircraft in the background - not for here. In your second try, the people and the car are just in the way of the aircraft, there is no real interaction between them but blocking, so I would also think it's not for here.
Regarding Kevin's try, looks to me like the best try so far, but I still fail to see the 'evident' interaction/addition to the picture of the car besides blocking the aircraft...
And finally a comment to Markus' linked picture. You see, here the car (and the F/A) is a part of a story that is being told in the picture. You don't have to read any comment to imagine what happened just seconds before...you completely forget that the car is blocking anything, and you would almost miss it if it wasn't there!

Hope it helps  Smile



Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!

Aye, that gives me exactly the information into the mindset I was looking for. I may still attempt a 3rd crop based on Kevin's try and just see what happens. Maybe I'll get a screener that likes cars? Maybe a catchy little comment would sway some opinions too. At least now I can expect a rejection after a week instead of being sure it would make it, lol. Thanks much for the info, though.

Of course you're right Andres but this is an F430 Spider and not some hideous Maybach; that's gotta count for something..!?  Wink

I agree, it is a picture of the car with an airplane in the background! Nice shot but not for the DB.

This Rolls Royce cost £280000 and they could get no-one to insure it for going on board as it was being driven around the deck on the North Sea!!! I had a lift- it was surreal! The harriers, Illustrious and the car all had Rolls Royce Engines... I'd love to have this added to the database, but they won't have it...
