More Rejections...are The Standards Going Up?

Thu Oct 09, 2003 8:38 am

I am sure that the free spirit rejection is because of the amount of pictures already on of this aircraft. What about the IL-62??

To me, the IL shot looks kind of 'flat'. Maybe you overcorrected the levels? The Parrot is just covered with ramp trash, and is a little underexposed for me.
And the LH landing is too dark, and oversharpened. You can see the halos all over the place. Maybe 10 minutes earlier and it would have been lit better.

There is always a next time...

Have fun,
Jeff

The Parrot is just covered with ramp trash

That could be hard if the plane is on approach...  Big thumbs up

I don't see much wrong with the first, its not a bad shot IMO. Maybe a little contrasty but thats about it.

The second, definitely the reflections, and look how dark the tail is, not good. The third is too dark as well.

Cheers

-Joge,

Last night when I clicked that link there was a photo of it parked at a gate with baggage carts all around it.

Ok, Jeff, got your point. I think I've actually seen the picture you mean, it's taken a bit from the back with some plane's tail on the right? So that's maybe due the filename there.

To stay in the subject, the first one looks pretty ok, you can try to take some contrast off like Dan said. The second one is underexposed most probably because of the huge reflection on the fuselage, that's where the cameras may go nuts with the lightmetering. I would lighten a bit the third one.

Bula!

Hi Grant,

I can comment on the Free Spirit... because I actually rejected it.
It's becoming a common aircraft and hence standards are increased.

I rejected it after noting that numerous screeners before me places their remarks regarding rejection.

I have taken shots recently of the aircraft when in Sydney that were 80% of the way there. My fellow screeners also rejected my shot because of being not up to the standards required for this common aircraft.

(By common I mean on airliners.net, because this is a rare bird in SYD/YSSY)

I'm sure you'll get shots of it in the future that will be up to the higher required standard for this particular registration.

Glenn i appreciate you comments and i fully understand, i was looking more at the back ground. I was hoping that all of the clutter would be gone but the cops were around and I couldn't stay for long.

I do have some more questions about this BADCENTRE stuff??

These were all recently rejected because of it?

No i know i am not the best photographer there are a lot of better guys and girls out there. But I just have a hard time seeing atlest one of these being a good shot. I would rather people say, hey there is a lot of pics like this, or find a different angle to photograph. I really enjoy watching these aircraft as they fly over and mostly the pictures are for me. I really do love to share them with other people and this is the best site to do that. I would hope that someone would give me a better explaination than BAD CENTRE

I would have to say that this is another one of those pics that is just too common.

I guess when it comes to taking pictures, the person on the end of the camera better have enough balls to take critisism, i would love for some feed back on these.

Thanks in advance

Grant

Grant---Ouch!!! The glare off that last photo just kills it. Plus the 3/4 rear shots are tough to get in as well.

And you are very right! If you want to open your work up to public discussion you better have the huevos to accept rejection and criticisim. Johan should post that in big letters on every rejection notice to people who whine and snivel and call names!!!!


Cheers, Tony

OK, here goes:

Grant, crop those badcetered ones 100-200 pixels from the top, that should do the trick. They're great anyway.

As for the Parrot, I don't know. The sun on the fuselage is a bit annoying.
How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

I think i have really gotten over it but as you can see i am not really complaining as much as i just want quality on the site. I am choosing not to upload to myaviation.net because i want the best pictures the i take on the site. The bad ones can find my recycling bin. I feel i have a good 50 more years to take photo's. So if a bunch get rejected, i am sure there are a lot more opportunities to take pictures.

I guess my point is that i have not been taking pictures for a year yet and i would like to upload my best and when i fell that I do i have questions regarding the ones that get rejected. I do appreciate any comments because i only want to get better. I hope that all photographers can learn from these posts of rejections, and I would have to say that the bar is getting raised on the quality of pictures accepted. So look at my rejection and lets improve on them for your future photo's!
