This is something I have raised in other threads but it tends to get buried in the originating topic(rightly so).
Is it perhaps, time for A.net to consider accepting photos that have different aspect ratios to what have been tradiitionally considered correct. I am not saying A.net or the criteria are wrong, just asking for feedback.
*Our subject matter in many cases naturally fits into a wide format.
*The viewers, the general public, are increasingly purchasing widescreen televisions and becoming comfortable with that format.
*Increasingly shots, especially ground shots, are being rejected(or not submitted) because of the continued encroachment of fences etc into the airport environment.
A couple of examples....
Traditional 3x2 e.g. 1024x683 (these examples are 800x533)
Widescreen 16x9 eg 1024x576 (these examples are 800x459)
Just my thoughts, interested in hearing what others think.
Oh.. and before I get flamed for plugging my own shots, at this moment I have no intention of uploading these photographs.
