Motiv Rejection Help

Wed Sep 27, 2006 7:00 pm


I recently had a reject message for 'motiv' on a similar shot to this. There was no mention from the screener, but several who replied advised me that due to a catering truck which partially featured, could have been the cause.
This is a different shot, and although there is a bit of ground equipment in frame, it to has been rejected for the same reason, motiv.
As I have not received any personal message from the screener, I again would like to ask the opinons here. Is is worth me re-working this, or is this type of shot not permitted anymore?
Any help would be most appreciated.

I rejected this one and the motive was the loading stuff around the hold. Thought I left you a personal too but have checked and didn't.
A tighter crop might be effective to just include the fin and fuselage top of the US Air though I suspect you might run into size/format problems.
I like this type of photo and without that stuff around the foreground aircraft I am sure it would have been on by now

While I respect the motiv rejection for this, I do however think that, as this is an overall shot of the ramp, the inclusion of the ground equipment is actually essential. It shows activity and projects a less sterile view of a line of aircraft tails.

Thats my view anyway. Although, having said that, I also think theat it would have been better to have included ALL the US Airways empennage and not chopped off the RH horizontal stab. Also if the baggage and container loaders were fully shown.

Do you have the orginal of this shot that I or someone else could have a go at, I'm not sure it can be made good for Anet due to the reasons mentioned by Mick but I am positive there are improvements that could be made that will make it a very worthy addition to your personal collection.

Some of the things that jar for me are the glimpse of blue fin in the lower right corner, the equipment that kills it for Anet also loses more interest by being cut off and the clipped horiz. stab on the US A330.


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

I personally would crop so as to loose the bit of Blue tail in the bottom right corner and also crop to include the whole of the rear horizontal stabilizer and maybe the whole of the A330 main under carriage  Smile

Thanks all, and especially to Mick the screeener who inteneded to leave a personal message. This is obviously very helpful even if it was just something like 'equipment'.

I'll check the original, and see what I can do, but atleast I know now for the future.

Thanks again,
