Question About Distance Rejection

Fri May 19, 2006 8:16 pm

I just had the following pic rejected and appeal-rejected for Distance.


I know, nothing special, and The Law applies - too much 'empty space'. My plea that the two aircraft on the ground add something (I would have the composition led to a somewhat different picture than the usual) obviously didn't help.

So, given that "This problem may be very easy to correct", does a.net really want me to upload this instead?


Ugly. I guess I'll just leave it. I'm not going to edit another shot from the sequence that shows this plane, a few seconds earlier, not showing the other ones - too many similar but better-quality shots there already... But I don't really understand the rule. Or am I wrong?

(PS - on neither of both screenings, I received any other rejection reasons. Quality may be nothing special, but I don't see any obvious defects neither).

I think you could get away with leaving the 767 in. The 737 adds nothing to the shot imo.

Agree with Tim .
Edit the shot including the entire 767 but don't worry to much about the 737 as its chopped anyway and doesn't add a lot to the shot.

Just as I thought to.. the B767 is nice on the background, and spoils the image when cropped half way down the middle!!

Yes. I would give this shot an HQ if I were to see it in the Q, and I'm sure other screeners would agree.

Okay, so reworked from scratch, it would now look like this:

As I feared, I'm not entirely happy with the quality though... leave it, or drop it?

I know this opinion is coming a little late in the game, but I think just the winglet and tip of the tail of the 737 is a little awkward there.

Have to go with Eric on this one.. that winglet and tiny bit of tail.. just doesn't work for me, in some ways I think having a tiny bit of an A/C in a pic is as bad as cutting off a tiny bit.

If it was my photo, for my personal collection I might get out the clone tool... I know you can't do that here.

Cheers
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

I don't think the winglet or the tail add or distract from the picture one bit. However, the quality of the photo is not up to standards.

I agree with this, I didn't even notice it in my first view.
