What Is Wrong With This Motive?

Sat Jul 08, 2006 5:00 pm

I had this one rejected for motive and I don’t really understand why.
I guess it could be the GPU, but it isn’t blocking any part of the aircraft. Should I have cropped out the prop or something like that?
Any thoughts are appreciated.

Hello Martin.

I think your problem here is that it is not clear what you are trying to make the focus of the shot. The photo is not a 'normal' nose close up, but the suggestion in the image that you have this angle to include the engine is spoiled a bit by the fact that the engine is incomplete - partly blocked by the nose, plus the props are cropped. Also, with the angle, the inclusion of the ground equipment takes you into the realms of 'clutter', which generally counts against motive.

All in all I wouldn't be surprised by this decision, I am afraid.

All the best.
