there is almost exactly on the mm the same distance between tail and top as well as nose gear and bottom...?!

Nice for everyone that you also get a rejection from time to time
|Quoting Viv (Reply 4):|
It should "look" right. It does not.
|Quoting JeffM (Reply 1):|
Quit with the numbers....it's too low in the frame to feel "right", and you cut off the a$s end of the starboard engine. The sooner you learn to stop checking numbers, the better off you will be.
|Quoting D L X (Reply 9):
but the numbers are the only thing we have to go on
|Quoting Viv (Reply 10):|
When I centre a shot, I NEVER measure it by the numbers.
|Quoting Viv (Reply 10):|
Centering is a matter of aesthetics.
|Quoting D L X (Reply 12):|
For instance, the whole "lead the action" rule that I was taught (and I'm sure plenty other photographers were taught) is frowned upon here - you'll get a centering rejection every time.
|Quoting JeffM (Reply 16):|
That photo has balance overall... Flo's doesn't, it's awkward as he posted it.
|Quoting Psych (Reply 14):
I am grateful to Damon for posting his example shot, and hope that the fact that he has done so will allow me to use it as a subject to comment on:
I see lots of shots like this with the tail of the aircraft almost touching the top of the crop, and there being varying amounts of space below the bottom of the aircraft. According to my subjective mind, this leads to an unbalanced shot - i.e. that subject as a whole is too high in the frame. Can anyone explain to me the rationale for this being correctly centred?
|Quoting Chris78cpr (Reply 17):|
It depends if you know the area. Considering that the fence would have been present in the shot if it had been cropped centered i dont think it is inbalanced
|Quoting StealthZ (Reply 19):|
Nothing to do with it...to my mind Florian's photo is out of balance, too low in frame, cropping it that way because there is a fence in the frame does not make it a balanced picture. Let me put it this way, a well composed and well balanced photo should stand on it's own merits not require the viewer to make allowances or to know why it was composed the way it is
|Quoting Chris78cpr (Reply 15):|
I think this JAL shot is great and is well waranted in the DB
|Quoting Glennstewart (Reply 22):|
Chris, this falls into the category of "motivational centering". It's completely allowed but up to the discretion of the screeners to decide if it is motivational or not. We liked this one obviously.
