Another One Of My Rants...This Shot Rejected

Fri Oct 01, 2004 4:18 am

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/rejphoto.main?filename=NW_N224NW_DC10_EHAM_250904.jpg

This rejected for low asthetics

WTF?

The photos were of low esthetic qualities - bad angle, included
window reflections (for shots taken through glass such as terminal windows),


Cant be that

pictured just a part of an aircraft (with no motivation, like a special
sticker, damage etc., for doing so), out of focus, distracting or
obstructing objects in the foreground or similar


Its a front end shot, thats the motivation... I wanted to get a closer look at the front half just like other shots quite the same... If this was the reason, surely Bad Crop would be more appropriate

or did not picture an aircraft or anything sufficiently
related to aviation at all. Finally, you might read this because your camera
displays the date in the lower right corner of the image. If so, please
disable that feature in the future.


Thats not applicable in this situation


I am thinking of appealing as was screened by a Screener in training, but is it worth it before I add to Johans workload?

1/80th shot came out pretty well IMO.

Comments/Critique would be great Big grin

I'm not a screener and have about half of my first uploads rejected, but I like the picture. I would have made it just a little brighter, and personally I prefer not to crop that tight (but apparently the screeners do), but I like the panning shot, with the plane very sharp yet the background 'moving'. The only real reason I could think of is that it's a crop (the plane is not fully shown) but I think in this case it only enhances the feeling of the shot. I'd like to know the reason(s) for rejecting it as much as you do  Smile

Kevin, I wasn't the one who rejected the shot, but I did ask for a second opinion as to the motiv...for me the shot is neither a nose shot or a half shot containing the wing and/or engines.

For me it just didn't look right.

Okay, so maybe a re-crop and then resubmit might get it accepted...

Where would be a good place to crop?

Not badcloning for sure, bad cropping, no space on the left and an engine cutted in half.

i'm not sure but i don't like the fact that the nosewheels are almost blended in with the black background, nice shot though!

Forget about the screeners. You like the shot..... it's a good photo for you to be proud of. Acceptance is just the icing on the cake, not the end of the world.
To improve this photo, I'd overall lighten the image a tad then mask and lighten the nose wheel a bit more so it separates visually from the background. It definately needs this. Perhaps a bit of artfull and very carefull dodging along the edge with a soft edge brush to give a little 3 dimensional highlight to the tires.
Next, I'd totally burn down the piece of horizontal wing/stab that shows below the engine. It's visually distracting from the photo and adds no usefull info. No cloning it out, that's not allowed, but masking and buring it down as far as possible is within the rules.
And lastly, I'd open up the crop by about 10-15% to give it a little more breathing room.
Other than that, great shot. I'd tweak it a bit and re-submit.

Nice shot and very sharp indeed for a motion blur shot.
Very nice indeed.

Who gives a hang what the screener who rejected it thinks...it is a super shot that you should and can be very proud of. Look at it as your gain and A.net's loss if it is not added to the data base.
