Will This Photo Get Accepted?

Mon Jun 04, 2001 11:22 am

This is my first decent looking image. The edges are a little rough since I had the photo scanned to a disk and they didn't do it perfectly. Anyway I think I got it looking pretty good. Do you guys think it stands a chance of being accepted,please keep in mind that this is probably one of the last Dash-8's in the original CP colours. Thanks, any comments are welcome.

Actually, I rather like it . Nice backdrop, not great but nice light, nice composition ect... I think it should have a better than even chance of getting in. Did you make mention the fact that this was one of the last DASH 8 s in CP colors ? Often by making comments such as this will increase your chances of getting accepted.

Good luck

For a beginner, that looks really nice. You'll just have to wait and see, and if he rejects it, try and touch it up with a photo program if you have one.

Very good photo, I like it a lot. Hopefully it will be included - the footnote about it being one of the last Dash 8's in CP colours should help too. Good Luck! If it is not immediately accepted do not despair - try touching it up first with the scanner programme.

That's not a bad photo at all! However, it's a little 'over-exposed' for my tastes (where the sky becomes white, and everything else becomes a little washed-out). Is this a print or a slide? If it's a print, I suggest getting a reprint and scanning it that way, because they can correct those sorts of things... (providing you don't over or under expose by say, more than 2 stops...!)
With a little practice, you'll get the hang of it... you're not far off!

Regards,
Rob

Thanks for the positive comments, I also uploaded cockpit photos that I took after having taken the one above(I walked up to the pilot and asked) and im pretty confident those will get accepted easy.

EGGD:

Thanks for the comment. Those Air Can pics are one of my first attempts at shooting close-ups with planes on the move. I've got some still shots, but I find it more challenging and rewarding of getting those action shots. Shooting in overcast conditions in late afternoon is a bit tough. More pics come out blurred than you can imagine - no future for those. I'll be adding more to my site soon. For some odd reason I can't get those up on A.net....  Confused

Thanks for the reassurance, Jonathan, sonic.

That fence is a pig at MAN, i really wish they'd at least lower it. Or make the viewing platforms higher.

I just hope Johan will have pity hehe  Smile
