Although I have one square picture here at A.net, I know they're not common and one can only assume that there was no other way of cropping, plus that it works well for the square crop? So, I now have a shot that is square and I'm wondering what the new "rules" say these days? Here's the shot in question, thanks for any input from screeners in particular.

Square crop, good to go?

Pictures must be either Portrait or Landscape between a 4:3 and a 3:2 aspect ratio. There are no exceptions, even under the creative image rule. I think this should would work just fine as a 3:4 Portrait if you crop as close as you can to the lead aircraft's right wing and the last aircraft on the left.

TIS, I've already said I have one here at A.net, so it's not impossible. Just wondering about this case though. Cheers. Cropping the way you recommend would result in a lot more empty sky (dead space) than is already evident in my square crop.

Wow I completely missed that part of your post. Sorry!!

Which image is it? Out of curiosity, of course, because I have an image from yesterday that I thought worked better with a square crop as well.

Personally, I like it. The quality is good and the crop suits the image.

It might be according to todays standards though. Your shot was accepted over two years ago. The standards have evolved so it's possible square crops are no longer acceptable. Input from a screener would clear things up.

Thanks for all the comments, etc but here's another question then, why is the square crop frowned upon may I ask?

Tell me. For those who still shoot chromes and use a 6 x 6 cm camera (2-1/4" x 2-1/4") such as a Hasselblad or Rollei, how would the rules then apply. Are they simply telling us we CANNOT use our full frame when shooting?

I'd like to hear updates on this topic as well, I have huge amount of medium format shots that are 2 1/4x2 1/4 that won't work as landscape/portrait format, is this rule etched in stone? or shall we upload and hope for the best.

Shortly after the introduction of the new "creative" category, I asked here on the forum if the size ratio could be changed for them. Received reply from a screener along the lines that if it works for the image, I should try... I've tried to locate that thread, but without much luck.

I have a Mamiya cam with PhaseOne digital back! more than 40 megapixels and good for a whole bunch of assignments of architecture and aviation photography .. not so for airliners.net ... it's square format!

Can that be considered camera racism  Wink ?

Yes...Camera Racism!...where's Al Sharpton when you need him?...My Hasselblad/Carl Zeiss optical Photo machine sits ildeling in jealeousy as it's usefullness seems to be waining...It was good enough for NASA to use on the moon...but apparently not up to A/NET standards. Well in the interest of my investment...I'm going to submit SQUARE IMAGES, as far as I'm concerned, a finer camera I haver never owned...a finer image you cannot obtain, ...when I purchased that camera my eqpt. supplier told me not to waste my money as a new camera age was on the horizon...BAH! I said. I've seen Hasselblad images before...let me tell you...that camera has photographed over two thousand private jet interiors and supported my income handsomly. I still use it and plan too until every last roll of film I can get my hands on is exhausted. Hopefully A/NET will accept the format, if not...no problem...camera has performed for me as it was designed to, and that was to generate revenue...
