Hello all just whanted to ask a general question since this is a photography/aviation forum-This might soud a bit silly, but Is there anything wrong or distracting when a aircrafts wings block some of the fuselage?, ex shots on Airliners.net, Air 2 Air

I asked serveral people already, and they said NO but whanted to make sure and put this issue I have to rest. I especially wanted to find out some opinions from Air to Air photographers on this site.

Thanks

I'm really not sure what you're asking, but unless you take photos nose-on or from above, it's a bit difficult to avoid some blocking of the fuselage. As to what's acceptable, just take a look at the photos on the site to get a pretty good idea.

You'd have a pretty difficult time getting shots from that angle WITHOUT the wing blocking some fuselage....

"Wrong" in what way? Who thinks there's something wrong?

I'm confused, you're a photographer with over 250 photos in the database, probably 90% of which have wing "blocking" the fuselage. I think there's an issue being created here where an issue doesn't exist!

Could not agree more.

I think if there was a rule against this, the only shots allowed in here would be the aerial ones from LAX!

So, you think they're OK and they're accepted on the site? I'm seriously confused what the "issue" is then.

Ummm...as stated above, there really is no issue. Wings can block the fuselage if that is what you are asking. It has never been an issue and it would be downright silly to make that "illegal." There is nothing wrong with a wing blocking the fueslage. In fact, a very good portion of the images on this site have a wing blocking the fueslage. Really, this case is closed, imo.

I think the originator of the thread hasn't articulated their point terribly well and selected 'poor' examples to illustrate their point as the photos used are rather good. I think this is what 'flight' is driving at.

There are certain aircraft and situations which don't make for 'good' photographs. An example is an arrival photo of an Etihad aircraft (in standard livery) at LHR where the wing will obscure the majority of the titles. While the photo may be technically correct in terms of exposure and centring, somehow it doesn't feel right. It is difficult achieving reasonable results unless the aircraft is on the ground so the effect of the wing obscuring the body of the aircraft isn't as pronounced so that titles can be captured.

The photos, I used are not terriable examples and not poor, I even shot those kinds myshelf. Furthermore I brought up this thread just to get some Assurance that I have nothing to worry about. The fact is that I am looking at the wings as a foreign object, not belonging there, instead of seeing them as part of the aicraft= that is the mindset I am trying to acheive.

I know that titles as mentioned above will always look better when the wing does not block what its saying, and thus can be considered wrong.

But the real point I was going for is when the wing coveres the cheatlines, swirls {like Interjet, Carribean ect.) windows.
Based on the respones I have gatherd througth other people, I wanted just to confirm with an expereinced aviation site.

That is why I was wondering if the rule/illusion of a obect being partially blocked, and the "human eye" still making it out applied to my issue.

Sorry but I am a very critical when it comes to judging my work.
