Thanks for submitting your shots to the forums. This is the perfect place to start towards finally getting shots accepted. And to be honest, you're at the place where some of us were when we first started - the learning curve is steep, but possible to climb.
Unfortunately being at the start of your journey, looking at this photo through screener eyes reveals a fair list of rejection reasons. Don't worry, you're not unique in this category. I see photographer's first batch of attempts all the time. You're at least visiting the forums where a screener like me can pull you up on the reasons personally rather than receiving a huge email of rejections.
In addition, there is many a photographer on this forum who would be happy to lend a helping hand towards improving on both elements of the photography and editing of the shot.
As I said.... a steep learning curve, but once you get to the top, you'll be mastering our wonderful hobby of aviation photography
Now for some helpful hints (albeit the short version):
1. Take time to read the following pages:
2. Read some important Forum discussions:
Monitor Calibration (by TomH Nov 30 2000 in Aviation Photography)
Generating Fake Photo Views (by Administrator Jan 27 2005 in Aviation Photography)
3. Take time to know your camera, your surroundings and the local spotters:
- Best time and locations to shoot at your local airport
- Best settings for your camera
- Get to know your local spotters and get hints from fellow photographers
4. Shoot with particular subjects in mind
- Start with easy all inclusive shots
- Try not to shoot common aircraft
- Refrain from shooting during bad weather initially
5. Edit, edit, edit
- The second half of getting a shot accepted is all in the edit
- Ensure correct colours, contrast and exposure
- Ensure rotation of shot is level
- Ensure shot is cropped and resized
- Ensure shot is sharpened
Okay - these are the basic, now let me turn to the rejection reasons on the shot above
Respected users.... If my replies are useful, then by all means...
