Snowfall On The Picture

Sun Dec 18, 2005 10:51 am

Hi. I took this picture of a plane today that is in bad shape. It has been moved to the "corrosion park", just today. Guess the owner couldn't pay for the rest of smth like that. Anyway, it was snowing a lot at that moment, and I was wondering if it causes any problem. Thanks for your advices! Have a good sunday.

Anyone care to have a look? I really don't know what's the a.net standards with snowfall. I did find a couple of pictures like these for instance:

Hi Philippe,

Like you mentioned in the 2nd post, it appears as if indeed photos with snowfall can get accepted. Concerning your photo, I think it just might get into the database if you can improve the brightness of the photo just a little bit. I'm not sure though...There are currently only 8 photos of this registration in the database, so this might be an advantage for you.

Best regards,
Ivan

It is a pretty interesting picture, sad to see such a nice plane sitting like that.

Being that the aircraft is not moving, nor will it be moving soon, I would just wait until it is not snowing and shoot again. The other two examples show aircraft operating in the snowy weather, which is interesting. Unless the snow adds to the "story" of the run-down G-IV, it just hurts the picture and makes it look of poor quality.
(on a side note, I find pictures every day that I cannot beleive were ever accepted, but then again I'm not a screener)
There are 3 simple rules for making a perfect landing every time. Its a shame that no one knows what they are.

I thought it'd give some kind od "creepy" look, that abandonned plane all alone under the bad weather  Wink Really!

I merely meant to say that using pictures that have been accepted cannot always mean that other seemingly similar pictures will also be accepted. Sometimes the screeners see something we dont. Sometimes I dont know what theyre seeing... but without starting a controversy I will not give examples.
