Any Chance At All To Get This Accepted?

Fri Dec 15, 2006 5:34 am

Dear photographers,

sorry to ask in this less-than-perfect form, but my last attempt at getting a photo accepted was five years ago. Although that one was successful, I have no idea about the standards anymore. For that reason, I'd be very thankful if someone could briefly assess whether or not this photo stands any chance at getting accepted - before I read through other threads trying to find what I need to do.

It is a JPEG, and straight from the camera which is a 3MP point-and-shoot. I'm aware that's hardly a piece of equipment, but since the photo would be only the second from that airport on a.net (first one is http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1091332/L/ ) I thought it might be worth it anyway.

Thank you so much, any advice will be appreciated! I'm pessimistic, but perhaps that translates better to "realistic".  Wink Cheers!

Sorry Achim, but that photo does not have a chance. The quality is just not there. Also, the plane is to small (distant) and would be rejcted for such. If you were to reduce the size of the photo down to 1024x wide, the quality certainly improves but the plane is still to small in the frame. With proper framing, photos with this camera should be able to produce images that will be accepted here.

In short: "No!"; in long: "Noooooooo!!!".  no 

Why? QUALITY!
There's just nothing you could work on to get this shot accepted as the required quality ain't there. The main reason is your equipment; with such a camera you might have a chance if you take a full frame picture from close distance under good lighting conditions.
But here you shot from a great distance, under difficult (high sun) lighting conditions.
Even the rare appearance factor of the airport won't save you here.

Maybe put a nice camera on your wishing list for Christmas!?  Wink

Hi Aloges, allthough the picture might not have the quality, I do like the picture. Motive wise very nice! Please try again, improve the quality. These kind of pictures are potential high hitters.

By the way, it reminds of the weather we have at our beaches all year round except for those two weeks I'm on vacation to somewhere else  Wink
