What Makes A Good Motiv On This Shot?

Wed Dec 11, 2002 6:12 am

I've gotten several rejects on shots of planes climbing out from takeoff....but have had several others accepted. The common reason is "badmotiv". Is there one screener who doesn't like this angle,,, or how do you shoot a plane like this and have it be a "goodmotiv"??

Here's the rejects:

(I know about the badcolor & badsoft; that can be fixed)

But here's a "good" one:

Don't know what the "magic" motive is for acceptance. I love those kind of shots, take 'em all the time, but seldom up load them for the same reason.

I guess it's a crap shoot.
