Its a real nice shot Aaron.
But from my experience,these kinds of shots won't be added.
I have tried numerous times to get my own pictures added and the planes I captured were not mere A320s. They were PRESIDENTIAL AIRCRAFT
(747 and IL96). Much larger and more SIGNIFICANT
due to the fact that it carried a president for petes sake, but it was CONTINUOUSLY rejected by screeners for baddistance just like yours.
I really do not understand the logic behind this. Not all but SOME screeners add pictures such as the example you provided with more simpler backdrops while other more dynamic/appealing ones get rejected. Quite irrational if you ask me. Its like trying to show something different gives me nothing but the shaft. From the replies I have read I am more than convinced that the general populous agrees that such a photo is infact worthy of a add.
Its also funny to note how for other sites when I uploaded, these photos get added and the screener who added it even puts in a nice comment in the remark field of the email. Not to mention decent amounts of hits came along with it. So why won't the largest and most prestigious aviation site recognize what I have done?
So what if some technical rules are not met. There are whats called exceptions where guidelines can be broken for some special shots under certain circumstances.
Those are 3 examples. By the way, thanks for making such a post Aaron. I'll put you on my respected list since you love this type of shot from Calgary
and your fighting for rationality.
Perhaps with some screeners gone and a whackload of new screeners, maybe this time these guys will have a different viewpoint and that may increase my chances of addition when I upload for the 1000th time.
My advice, keep trying! If there are some minor glitches which you can easily improve (perhaps reduce the effect of the haze in photoshop by adjusting a wee bit the curves or contrasts), do take the chance to make it that much a bit better. Then the shot should be unstoppable!
