Motiv Rejection - Window View Shot

Thu Aug 17, 2006 8:12 am

Hi
I was wondering if you could help me figure out what the problem is here. I´ve had this picture rejected for motiv, but I don´t know why, since all the wing is visible and I there are no other main subjects in the picture which might have been cut out. I thought at first that there might be issues with LV-ZTX, but really I don´t know.

Any comments appreciated.
Thank you!

Maybe a bit too cluttered! And the image size might be another issue.

What do you mean by 'cluttered'?
Regarding the image size I believe it´s fine because its 1024x768. It´s within the accepted size and image ratio.
Thank you for your comment.  Smile

Yeah, you're right. My browser resized the image. Sorry for confusion!

Check the window dirt (white spots) in the bottom left tarmac area.

Oh...Its Lanas 1st day as a premium member  Smile

And if I were a strict screener, I would also reject it for bad composition...The small yellow paint on the bottom left forner and the cut off 737 of LAN Air.

Thank you for realising! I´m just glad I could join in! Big grin

I didn´t know that 'bad composition' existed. I thought that a window view should show primarily the wing. In this case I just wanted to show how crowded the ramp of this small airport was. I didn´t intend to focus on one of the aircraft pictured in the image. If that were the case I would completely agree with the motiv rejection.
Thank you for your comments.

The composition is the problem I think. The subject of the photo is unclear, my eyes are drawn to the nothingness between the three aircraft.

Yes, I guess you´re right. Do you think that´s the reason for the 'motiv' rejection?

Hi Lanas,

Quoting Lanas (Reply 6):

What I meant was bad composition leads to bad motive sometimes. But as far as this rejection is concerned, I primarily feel its just because of the window dirt as I mentioned in the previous post.

You can clone them out...but it may lead to other consequences (if serious).

Lanas, yes, I think so. I think it would even be rejected if both 737s were fully visible, sorry.
By the way, Vas is right that you can also get this rejection for a photo that has visibly been shot through glass.

Cheers,

Peter

What a shame. I believed the picture was better than what it turned out to be.  Sad

Quoting JeffM (Reply 11):

I thought that view of the ramp was OK. It´s a pity I don´t have any better pics of that flight. I´ll try better next time I fly.
