Bad Acceptance For "artistic" Angles?!?

Mon Aug 22, 2005 1:24 am

Hi,

I recently got a few rejected pics I would like to get some feedback on.
All pictures got rejected on "Bad motive".

I would appreciate some feedback from the forum users so I can judge if it is worth another try with future pics or just not upload this kind of shots anymore.

I think this all depends on personal taste of course and is not as easy to judge as a side-on.

Thanks in advance for any response  Wink

Nice shots, I am sure any art director would agree. However they don't fit the criteria that Airliners.net allows.

I personally like your idea/motive. It shows some aspects of the airport enviroment such as the second photograph. (Kind of like "behind the scenes of airport operations") However those photos are non-typical airliners.net photos.

I really like the last two. Try the last one on the "other site," it probably has a good chance.

I think an art section on A.net would be a nice idea to host pictures like those above! MyAviation or "the other site" shouldn't be the solution...

Just my opinion!

Can I ask specifically what is considered bad motive on the third shot above? It is quite different from the other two, and the only things you can see are airplanes. Surely, it's a "different" crop but what's wrong with that?

I like the third, that's a cracker.

Jeroen,

Those are all excellent shots!
They would fit in any magazine or publication perfectly!

Unfortunately, that doesn't mean they fit on A.net.
Too bad, cause A.net is loosing a lot of great shots like yours because of it.
A.net is running their own rules. Good or bad, that's the way it is...

Keep the great work up!

Jeroen,

All of your shots are incredible, although I'm personally more fond of number two and three.

It is a shame that Airliners.net is so set on the "aviation" part of aviation photography.The photographical aspects of aviation photography have much more to offer.

Keep up the excellent work. You'll go far.

I think we've noticed all good positive replies, Jhribar. You have your own eye for photography, so don't feel bad.

The 3rd shot is really outstanding. Personally, I'd appreciate to see more of such photos on a.net, among all the technically perfect shots of some A3xx or B7xx on short final at some major airport.

However, no offense intended - that's just my €0,02. Both photographers and screeners do an outstanding job here, and the pictures on a.net are far from being boring. Still, as for my liking, pictures like Jeroen's would not lower the standards of this website.

All three are great shots from a photographer who looks for something new and different. The top one I really like, though in my opinion it needs a slice taking off the top as there is too much sky .
They are not a.net photographs though.......unfortunately
Jeroen, I look forward to seeing more from you.

Jeroen,

Royal post says it all, but summing up, I would say the first and second are bad motive because the main subject is not an aircraft. It seems that some posts have got it.

The third falls in another category: while the idea is good, I think the composition is not very correct. The Hemus Air tail logo and the engine are cropped (though I like the isolated "LZ" letters), The Balkan Holidays almost gets out of the frame.

Perhaps reframing the BH respecting the two thirds rule and moving away to get complete subjects of the tail (not just bits of it) would have given you more chances and the photo could be a good header for any Bulgarian charters article.

I'm sure that even you would be happier with the photo if you try this way

Regards!

I think you are confusing proper photography rules with a.net acceptance rules.

No Harry, I'm not.  cheerful 

If you read carefully, I mean the first and the second are NOT A.net material.

The third would be A.net material if it was photographically correct.

Hi all,

first of all, thanks for your reactions.
I really appreciate this feedback!

It seems most of you like these kind of shots.
And I'm pretty sure that there are more photographers among us, trying to shoot and offer the A.Net viewers some different angles like these....which as you can see can be quite difficult  Wink

As mentioned in some replies a special section for this kind of shots could be a solution perhaps? In my opinion A.Net will not be degraded or loose viewers because of this. Judging your reactions this could be a nice addition to the database.

For the moment I will stop trying to upload these kind of shots since both screeners point out these shots don't belong on A.Net.
However I still think the "Admin" should think this over and also give the less conventional pictures a chance in the (far  Smile ) future.....

Best Regards,

Jeroen Hribar

P.S. to Toni: the 3rd shot is exactly the way I want it to be....You can not satisfy all viewers when choosing a certain composition. Some like it, some don't. This all depends on personal taste en esthetics as I already pointed out in my original post.

Hi Robin,

I could indeed appeal No.3. The intention of my post however was not to "force" the pics through the screening. As sad I just wanted to know how the general opinion about this kind of pictures is.

The opinions tend to be more at the pro than at the con side the way I see it, however at the moment A.Net seems not the right place to be posting these pics. No hard feelings about that by the way  Wink

Thanks again guys for your response, it was really helpful

Great photos - I love the first one as it creates a sense of movement and is precisely the kind of shot an artistic photographer will always find at a location, really draws the eye in.

Number two is quite interesting, number three feels rather unbalanced to me, but if your brief was for an airport operations portfolio it sure fits that well. However, that's just my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.

airliners.net does not profess to make a judgement about what is and is not photgraphically "correct". That would be absolutely bonkers.

We simply have some rules to create some structure in such a massive project, and those rules have to be drawn somewhere. All three images look to be outside of what airliners.net wishes to publish. That does not prevent them being good.
