Nice shot - what's not to love about those beasty QF 330s! - however it most likely would indeed get badmotiv. Do you have more of the aircraft in the original, so that you could crop to each engine?

Cheers,
Gabriel

Nice one Jim but maybe just a bit too much empty space to the right of the engine. Here is my attempt at a similar shot of a 777 to give you an idea of what I mean.

Hi
I'd agree with Jid, crop just to the right edge of the engine and if possible include all of the Qantas title on the fuselage

You know what is scary about this pic?

Looks like JJ747 has a new camera....there goes the reduction in queue size!!!!

Seriously.. Alan, welcome back to the A.net contributor world!

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Gabriel i do have a simular shot that i decided to upload that has both engines in frame but i liked this shot a bit more.

Thx jid that's a lovely shot i do get what you mean and my shot falls short of that so i have decided to go with the shot with the 2 engines .

Ian that was as far as i can crop on that side as the original was more to the right thanks for the advice anyway much appreciated.
Thanks to all who replied

Just my two penny worth......
It is an old photographic rule that bright or light colours, and in particular red, at the edge of a frame are distracting. Try covering the Fire Station door on the right and the photograph appears much better.
If a bit more of the frame is available crop off the right to remove the red door and a bit more to the left and it is a nice shot.

Jim
If we are into old photographic adages, another one is 'fill the frame for impact'
You have certainly done that !
Having said that, I prefer to see the aircraft standing on something and don't like these shots where the undercarriage is cropped in half. There are a lot of them on the db but they are seldom to my liking even where, like yours, the quality is great. We sometimes forget to consider turning the camera on its side to include the nosewheel, fuselage and fin ! I wonder whether you might have cropped in a little too tightly at the bottom by cropping off a bit of the bottom of the fuselage. The dilemma is whether to crop the u/c or the fuselage and perhaps the best way would be to have the bottom of the fuselage right on the bottom of the frame.
As an aside, your photograph is a fantastic demonstration of an almost perfect 'rule of thirds ' composition.

Mick i thank you again you certainly know your stuff.
WHen i took this shot the aircraft was getting towed to the service bay.
The driver of the tug got it so close to the fence and then reversed the aircraft back into position so unfortunately when i took this shot the fence or grass hedge was right up against the bottom of the nose.

The gear was covered otherwise i would have certainly cropped it in.
Thanks again for your opinion its very much appreciated.
Cheers
