Need Opinion On Badcameraangle

Tue Jul 12, 2005 11:24 am

Help, please?

I'm no newbie, I have over 1,600 photos on Airliners.net. But I just had two photos rejected for badcameraangle. I'm a bit confused. Since I like both photos, I'd like to see them accepted, but I can't seem to figure out how (why) they are badcameraangles. Can someone (screener?) give me some advice?

I had a hard time deciding on what to use as a vertical reference in this one.

And 2.

In this one I used the vertical band on the center of the ATC tower.

Thanks!!  Smile

Hi Jerry,

These are tough ones:

* In the first I wonder if the issue might be that vertical pylon at the right of the photo. If so, this does need a little CCW rotation to make that vertical (just under a degree)

* I looked at the second for a few minutes. Very difficult. I see what you mean about the tower. Interestingly, if you go to the right of this and look at some of the verticals there - such as the edge of the large window of the terminal, plus all those road lighting pylons on the right of the photo - they all require a significant CCW rotation. That then messes up the tower though. Could it be there needs to be some 'compromise'?

I hope you get some screener feedback on this one.

Paul

The first one appears to me to need a bit of CCW rotation. For the second, the fisheyes are hard, since they distort the verticals. Judging from the tower, which seems to be the best vertical near the center, I would say a bit of CCW rotation as well. Either way, fabulous shots, I hope they make it on!  Smile
