Your Thoughts On This Motive Rejection?

Sun Aug 06, 2006 3:29 pm

Hey all,

Got another long email from the screeners this evening and was pretty disappointed to see this one get tagged for motive:

Would you appeal?

Muchos thankos,

Brian

Now Thats a lovely shot.
Looks like the motiv rejection reason is the flavour of the month at the moment.
Cheers

Great shot Brian, but I don't think it's got much of a chance. It's obviously tough to get unusual angles like this accepted, but the shot is also fairly dark and lacking some detail in the engines and under the wing.

Should've used a fill light under the wing, and there's a dust spot next to one of the cones.

Nice shot but not for A.net. Sell it to Cargo 360 and make some money! Big grin

Appeal, Don't think so, is a tad dark, as Eric said some fill flash may have brought out some detail. As it stands I have difficulty in finding the centre of attention.
Good try but needs some work.

Cheers

PS great work on the Jetstar article in Airliners magazine

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

Thanks for all the comments.

Would a fill-flash really have lit much up over a 30-second exposure? And good eye on the dustspot, will definitely clear that up. I might try re-editing it to correct the darkness and bring out more detail, but that won't change the motiv. Damn.

Here's another fresh rejection from that night. I part expected it to get bounced for motive as well (which it did) because of the nose-area, but I also wanted to believe that this was an extenuating circumstance all the way around -- new registration and relatively new airline for the database, plus something not normally seen around here...

PS - Thanks, Chris, I'm glad you enjoyed my article. Keep an eye out for two more pieces later this year.  Smile

I don't think it's easy to get engine close ups accepted here. I have one accepted and the following three rejected for motiv:

This being said I really like your shot !!

Oh and since we are talking about motiv rejects, I have had this one as well :

But life goes on

i think this is a super shot Brian, and I wouldn't change it. I'm wondering if fill-flash might have created some nasty glare off the underwing and engine mounts - that glossy grey paint looks like it would pick up a strobe very nicely.

Shame it wasn't accepted.
