You know if I were this guy:
Not Getting The Motive (by Flugnord Dec 19 2006 in Aviation Photography)

I'd be pretty damn pissed about this photo:

You're comparing apples to oranges. Sure, they're both fruit but one is totally different than the other.

And just to add: Yes, a nice selection of images for sure.

All of those photos were added by Johan.

The shot by Luis is by far a better composed, interesting shot.

Is that really you Eric? I thought you self-deleted!

Not that i'm being argumentative or anything, but if these photos are making people happy looking at them (like above), how come they are not added in the first place?

Because they probably have/had questionable motive and/or quality issues that did not warrant a direct add. "Making people happy looking at them" while great, is not in itself a good enough reason for acceptance. I hope that answers your question without sounding defensive, not my intention.

Both were the exact same angle, only one was canned for badmotive. Yes one had other flaws, but those weren't related to the motive.

My pleasure. Just wanted to share the exellent mood these pictures put me in. It didn't even get spoiled by the rejection (a fair one, I must admit) I myself received this morning.

Who cares about the angle? What does that have to do with motive?

One looks like the back of an airplane, the other looks like a freaking work of art.

Why do you have to turn a positive thread into a negative? And, strictly on a personal note, if you don't like the policies why did you leave and comeback?

What is the aircraft reflecting on in the bottom of the frame? Is that the hood of a truck or something? Looks odd to me, as does the wb.

You mean the one with correct white balance that got rejected?

Do you really think, white balance and art have much to do with each other  Smile ? About time for the museums to start rejecting pictures by Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, etc. In some of their works, WB really sucks.

Sorry, Michelangelo is a poor example, though, as most of his paintings could only be rejected together with the walls  Smile...

Does look like a hood. It adds this extra-something to the picture composition to make it so good, IMHO.

The 747 is reflecting on the car roof I put the camera on because I didn't had a tripod, as for the wb, Faro ramp lights have a slightly "yellowish" tone.

You just did that all by yourself, and to this day, continue to do so. I have not seen you reply to a thread constructively, since I've been a member here.

Looks odd to me, as does the wb.

WB does to my eyes too, but interesting concept with the roof. I like it!

Hi,

Thanks for posting these shots, especially as the B747 flying over Mt. Fuji was taken by myself!  Big grin

It is a shame that more of this type of shot probably gets rejected due motiv as I personally find them much more interesting to look at than simple side on shots, and, judging by the amount of hits they seem to get I would think the majority agree.

I am approaching 1000 shots (7 to go) but find I have to be more careful in what I choose to upload in order to avoid those dreaded rejections! I wish I could be a little more adventurous.

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it and a Happy New Yeat to all.

Regards,

Stuart

Looks nice, especially considering that we don't get any REAL snow down at our end  Sad . At least A.net will give us some  Smile .

Just to conclude: from now on when I see that Johan has just emptied his backlog, I'll rush to have a look at the new photos in the DB straight away.

I really don't understand how having a car hood take up such a great deal of the shot does not warrant a motive rejection...

Luis. Sorry if that offends you... you have many amazing photos, but I just don't understand this one.

Try and look deeper into the hood, maybe you'll understand.

Anyway, its all right, some see, some don't...

As for me, I don't understand you. He got lucky, his shot got accepted, and a good shot, too. Instead of being happy for him, you seem to be upset that it didn't get rejected. What is it, jealousy?

Yes, you're right... There's no reason not to be happy about other's acceptances. Anddd I am very jealous of Luis' work. Haha. He's a much better photographer than me.
