NOA_motiv Consistency?

Fri Sep 01, 2006 10:13 pm

I was hesitant to post this, however in light of recent NOA_motiv discussions and ongoing 'motiv' issues I figured I may as well say what a number of people are probably already thinking.

What's up with that shot? Other than the fact that only a small sliver of the aircraft is actually visible, there is no airport or other significant aviation-related subject matter visible on the ground or anywhere else in the frame. Yes, I do see the aircraft carrier however even then, there are no aircraft on deck. Given that relevant photos with much more aircraft visible have been contentiously rejected for _motiv, I'm curious as to the acceptance of this shot.

Disclamer: Tamsin, in no way do I mean to single you out. I regularly see your work and enjoy what I see. It's not a big deal, I merely want to put forward an example of an instance where screening can be somewhat inconsistent.

Cheers.

Window shot rule(s)

If you can see part of the plane (ie a wingtip, wing, engine etc etc) then the view "out the window" doesn't need to be aviation related. If it did we would not accept most window views.

If you can see something aviation out the window (airport, another plane) then a piece of the plane doesn't need to be visibile.

TZ's shot is in no way bad motiv, nor are the 1,000's of other shots that have the same motiv.

All the above assumes the shot in question meets other guidelines.

I think it's only the absence of a wing that makes it look odd, but actually, I like window views, especially of a town I'm familiar with.

Shame he didn't do Southampton.
It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

As TZ put >This commanding view is made possible by the bowl-shaped windows which allow rescue crews to observe beneath the helicopter.

Its had nearly 2000 veiws so must have some good motive!

All depends who uploads unfortunately. Had similar ones rejected for motiv and I am sure many other had as well.

You know Jeff, if we apply the (so called) logic you apply to most of your replies, who cares? It's an airplane picture. BFD. Get over it.

Should we have rejected these, too?

This is a cry baby thread. If you want to attack TZ at least do so in a way that makes sense.

Also the images you have cited as your evidence, only go to prove the thread starters point.

Phil, my comment was not directed at the thread starter.

At any rate it is just another example of the passive aggressive nature that exists on most Internet forums.

Really? If you could explain how I would appreciate it.

And some links to rejected photos of the like would help, too.

Thanks.

Tim would you please show me my last post in a thread like this (presumably you meant critisizing the screening team)?

When you choose to attack somebody personally at least base it on facts.

Lets not loose site of the carrot here!

You said my reply, and the pictures I included "This thread is about inconsistency and the photos you attached actually prove the point of it."

So, how about it? Explain what you meant. Please.

That means that similar photo gets either accepted or rejected depending onwwho screens it and not depending on how it looks.

Funny (?) story: I got one photo rejected for badcontrast. Appealed - headscreener responded that indeed contrast was ok only the angle should be fixed a bit. Once angle got fixed photo got rejected for soft.  Wink

Different screener, different monitor, different results.

The rules about window shots are quite well defined and (as far as I know) followed. The above shots show that we accept those shots, not just those uploaded by screeners.

Not sure what your rejection has to do with it, but I will comment. I imagine that you had to rework the photo from scratch? Maybe something was different in your workflow? If you reworked it from scratch it is no longer the same picture. Maybe you tried to tweak the contrast and it affected something else?

Screening will always have an element of subjectivness (sp?) to it.

No, it was larger than 1024 so I was too lazy to do anything else other that rotate and crop.

Regarding photos that you selected - four out of six show an airport so the main motiv of the photo is airport overview and it is irrelevant how much of wing they show. The main motiv of the photo that started the thread is city, which is not aviation related. Just use a bit of common sense.

So you took a jpeg, rotated it, cropped it, and reupload it, and are complaining about a rejection?

You are right, you are lazy

four out of six show an airport so the main motiv of the photo is airport overview....Just use a bit of common sense

Photo ID: 1101626 - Shows a nearly deserted grass strip. I was liking it to an aircraft carrier

Photo ID: 1093060 - No airport, shot shows a city.

Photo ID: 1092066 - No airport, shot shows a race track.

Photo ID: 1084666 - Another empty grass strip, see my first comment.

Photo ID: 1082812 - No aiport, shot shows clouds and some scenery.

Photo ID: 1082313 - Airport view, again, deserted.

Would it help it I provided JUST examples with no airport in sight. What you called "The main motiv of the photo that started the thread is city."

I can do this all day...

So, where is the inconsistency? Seems to me it if we had rejected the shot that was used as an example, by TZ, THAT would have been the inconsistent.

Maybe that is why you are not a screener anymore? Clearly you don't get it.
