Is This Kind Of Photo Allowed?

Wed Aug 07, 2002 7:09 am

Hi everybody.

Last week I went to shoot some gliders, and I ended up with this shot. I think the composition is quite good. (that, of course is subject to personal opinion).

The thing is, as you can see a man is visible on thexizor707. Now, he is not really recognisable, as his face is quite blurry. So, what do you think ? Will such a photo be rejected for presence of people ? Should I blur the face more (that would be quite easy), would this pic be accepted ? (rejections for bad quality aside)

Thanks for any advice.



I also have some problem trying to improve the visual quality of the pic : if I try to sharpen the picture, the lines become unregular, as if there were scan lines (which would be ironical as I use a digital camera !!). Any idea on how to improve this ?

Once again, thanks for the piece of advice

I once uploaded a photo with people on it, the guys were in the background and nobody was recognizable (It was a picture of the cockpit of a Agusta A-109 air ambulance).

I received this message :

The following photos were rejected:
(Please read more below)

- Cockpit_A-109K2_HB-XW..jpg (Rega Agusta A-109K-2)

You need permission from the people pictured on the photo to be
allowed to publish it. Generally we do not accept photos with
people on them as our database is primarily for airliners. There
are some exceptions though. The rule essentially is that the
primary subject of the photo must be the aircraft, not the
person. If the person is clearly recognizable (facing the camera,
clear mention that permission was given by that person must be
stated in your remarks.


But I must say that there were more people on my picture and that they were closer than on yours.

PS : Your picture is too much compressed, I don't think it will pass unless you can improve its quality.

I think that would be a borderline with regard to people - maybe referred to Johan for a decision. But the image would need a bit of work first.

Try resampling down to 1024 pixels wide - you may find you can sharpen things a little more at that size. The problem is that already the picture is
showing some sign of jaggies along the top of the fuselage - any sharpening will emphasise this, so you may need to mask off this bit of the picture when you try and sharpen.

The other area for improvment is that the picture looks a little flat (due to direction of the lighting) - while not in itself a killer, you could give the pic a little more life by adjusting the levels.

It IS a nice shot though, and worth a bit of extra effort.

Cheers,

Colin

I would recommend to reduce the size of the pic. Should help with quality.
But still You may have a problem with bad people.

Thanks for the answers.
I think I'll improve this shot as advised. IMO, the face of the guy won't be really recognisable after downsising.

Then, if the pic is rejected because of "presence of people", I'll go back to the gliding club, try to find the guy, and ask his permission. Problem is : will anybofdy at the club recognise him ?  Wink/being sarcastic
