I must say this batch of uploads has been much more successful than previous ones. Some rejections are agreeable and others I'd like to get some feedback on that I've noted below.

Rejected for Level and Dark. Comment for CW rotation.
I think with CW rotation it will cause another rejection for level. The flag pole in the background is vertical so CW would have it leaning. I think the CW rotation was made for the trailer in center screen that is slightly unlevel but correcting it to level makes the flag pole off and more noticed more. I'm guessing the dark park is the rear fuselage which is slightly darker from the wing shadow and the way the sun is located. Not really sure how I can bump this up without blowing out the other areas that are already pretty bright. Thoughts on both?

Rejected for Motive
I guess I'm just looking to see if this looks like it would qualify as elaborate artwork? Per the rejection guide elaborate artwork would warrant a closeup such as this and be acceptable motive. I know this is purely subjective but looking to see if it's a majority opinion.

Thanks!


Oh, it's a big pretty white plane with red stripes, curtains in the windows and wheels and it looks like a big Tylenol.

1. Dark I can semi agree with.. Maybe just a touch more brightness to the fuselage. But that level rejection is questionable IMO. I even wonder if it'd be worth appealing.

2. Sorry, such things are generally not accepted on this site. You'll need more of the plane (maybe a whole nose in the frame if it's under the cockpit window) for it to be acceptable.



It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Dark is for being backlit, and it definitely needs cw rotation - look at how the treeline in the background slopes left.

You're right, we do accept close ups of artwork, but they would need to be framed overall a bit better, to include more of the aircraft in context.

The best examples I could find would be something like this -

Thanks for the feedback guys. Nothing I can really do for the nose art and will have to look back and see if I got one with the nose in it. It was on display at an airship and was hard enough to get this withouth people walking through the shot let alone an unobstructed shot of the nose.

Danna, I take you are referring to the palm trees in the center of the shot? This will cause the flag pole to slope to the right. Better question is is it worth trying to do a re-edit with the dark rejection for being backlit as you say. Can't fix it being backlit.

Thanks
Andrew

(*Dana) No, the whole tree line. Unless the trees suddenly start getting taller as they go to the right, the left side is lower than the center.

Probably not much you can do with that.

Thanks Dana, that's what I figured and no sense wasting time or queue space.
Apologies on the name misspelling. This time I'm blaming the auto fill function on one of those wonderful technology pieces manufactured by a piece of fruit.
