Dear screeners,

I have seen many great pictures on this webpage, but I would like to ask how did this picture got through the screening process?!

I mean, I looked at this picture and I can not find any plane!

Well, while the photo clearly has it's deficiencies, one must admire the angle the photographer chose in order to best display the "undercarriage" of the object in question.

I have to say I'm surprised by the inclusion of this image. Images with similar motives have been rejected or removed in the past. I'm not sure it furthers the "database" in the slightest and panders to a certain audience. Images with aviation related engineers, pilots etc are rejected but images like this are accepted?  


Whatever.......

However, I remember a while ago (years back) where photos of other people (pilots, flight attendants, baggage handlers, etc.) were not allowed unless the photographer got prior permission from the person. If my memory serves this was after the Hooters Air F/A shots.

Sometimes I do not understand.

Plane takes about 2/3 of the shot. Clear aviation motive. Very nice addition - 1/6 of the picure is the girl with camera. Very good aviation picture.

Congrats to master - one more great shot is his collection! Thanks for shraing, thanks for acception.

PS. Even this shot is aviation motive, I'd say

I'm cheering for this photo. Applaude the staff for including this photo in the database. Yah, it seems like too many photos of similar motive are rejected these days. Especially after johan checked out, but to see this photo make the database suggests a shift in reasoning by the "new a.net" management towards a more accepting & inclusive mentality.

Or maybe this is a mean tease by the staff since Jet Visuals is a long time contributor and often the "old Guard" photogs get special consideration. I mean, lets be real, this website ain't a democracy.

At first, I didn't want to give any attention to the complaints in this thread. But I must say a few things...

First of all, this site could use more creativity and storytelling like this! Stop complaining, it's a good thing!

I like the story this photo tells. This is an aviation photography website. Here you have a nice young lady taking a photograph of an airplane! Person + camera + airplane IS aviation photography!

The photographer presented this story in a way that works. It's wonderfully composed and the aircraft fills enough of the frame to be the main subject of the shot.

Sorry - but this statement is incorrect. Johan constantly changed the rules - at one point purging all images that could be "misinterpreted," to avoid falling foul of his ISP's definition of "porn."

Demand Media has never provided any sort of limits on what we can, or cannot accept. If you have an image that was purged back in 2004, by all means, reupload it.

You make me LOL, King. What is a MOTIVE rejection then? Earlier this year I uploaded a shot of a half naked woman on that billboard by the LAX innout and it was rejected for Motive.

I should probably go below deck and get back to rowing with the others...

Sounds like it should have been uploaded at billboards.net

If it was rejected for motiv it was because of the overall content of the photo, not the subject of the billboard.

Okay, yah. The Billboard filled prob 60% of the frame. Had a Virgin A346 nicely perched on top of it with the wingspan the same width of the billboard. Looked classy, very similar to this photo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gtarded/4806646452/

Actually, thats the same advertisement that was in my photo.

Derek, with all due respect the shot is really nice. I mean not only because of the girl, but I really like overall composure of it. Photographer's portfolio shows how the he knows his stuff and produces quality photographs.

And I am first to admit it, I like the girl in the photo as well.

Nice shot, but you have 2/3 of people, 1/3 plane. The pic above I would say is opposite.   ...and offers better subjects!

IMO, There's no such thing.

And these photos will tell you why, its what looks right to the screeners at that moment.
A known/reputed uploader's shot will perhaps get the screener to look at that image for an extra second/seconds before passing judgement.

None of the shots except the ANA T7 have the plane occupying even 1/4th of the shot & we can fathom what the ANA will be rejected for had it been shot by someone else.

Point is, there's a narrative to all of them.
And atleast its not a "on short finals for rwy xyz" or bland landing shot nonsense

I've had a few disappointments with uploading such type of photos & to be honest i've not pursued it a lot as I thought the screeners didnt seem very fond of women

AIRLINERS.NET CREW
HEAD SCREENER

What is accepted onto the database is evolving all the time and had the woman in that shot have been facing the other way and smiling at the camera, it would not have been accepted. However, the way she is, with the camera raised creating a lead for the eye to be drawn to the main subject, the aircraft, it is more than well composed, it is superbly so ! She happens to be in the photograph but her position is not at all gratuitous and the image is a classic rule of thirds one with a lead in. I don't like the term creative for unusual motive shots here, but this one is !

However, we have a system that when an image such as this enters screening, it needs to be seen by multiple Screeners and if contentious it is referred to the Heads for a final decision. That one was seen by five Screeners all of whom saw it for what it was, an excellent photograph and it was added. If you want to try something different, then there is nothing to stop you but don't be surprised if you get rejections. A well known, very popular photographer here asked my advice just the other day as he had had a lot of rejections but by pushing the limits as he does, you probably will. But you might also get something different accepted more frequently than in the past. Jet Visuals is a superb photographer who knows the difference between what is simply different and what is good. The two are not always the same and most of what we see where something is different comes from the least experienced photographers and it is not often good. Different and good has been accepted for a long time.

I have to take exception with you Vishaljo for this comment and I do not like the fact that four (Head) Screeners images are then used to try to make his point when there are thousands of images on the database where the aircraft is a far smaller part of the image - the ANA 777 is a standard side-on image that could be any one of probably a million images like it. So why refer to it other than to take a shot at Screeners rather than being balanced?

Quoting vishaljo (Reply 23):
A known/reputed uploader's shot will perhaps get the screener to look at that image for an extra second/seconds before passing judgement.

Images are only judged on their merit something that you can only appreciate when you see how things are done and that is something that surprises most trainee screeners when they join.

As to Vishaljo's last comment

For e.g., i had made a fleeting tongue-in-cheek reference to the excited/curious girl seen here exiting after spending a minute in the cockpit of the Rafale.
Check its remark now

We reserve the right to remove comments that are seen as hit seeking, waving pilots, check out.... etc and, whilst I do not remember precisely what the comment was I do remember it was a comment about how attractive you thought the girl was to get the pilot's and your attention. What could be more hit seeking than that, drawing attention to the girl, less than 10% of the image, rather than the aircraft?

Yes, the comment was removed as it was very clearly a hit seeker, but some people seem more bothered about the hits than the aircraft (I am evidently not one of them) and, even now ' Check its remark now'
