Risk Of Rejection For "motiv"?

Sun Dec 31, 2006 12:31 am

Do I risk a rejection for "motiv", because of the tailcone in the left foreground?

I think you should be ok, I have had pics accepted at boneyards with worse. Nothing is blocking the main subject.

The tail end on the left side kills the photo for me.

Quoting Viv (Thread starter):

Your chances stand 50:50 but I wouldn't upload the shot cause apart from the tailcone there is also too much stuff in the background distracting from the main subject and the lighting ain't superb.

A 100% rejection; it's blurry and lacks overall quality to only name the 2 most obvious reasons.

Hi Viv,

From what I have seen so far, the screener will probably ask himself the question: Could you have avoided the tailcone by stepping just a little to the right? I think so, thus I would suspect I would be rejected  Sad

Viv,

I feel it might look more pleasant if you include a bit more of that tail, instead of eliminating it as far as possibile.

Can't be done, the shot is full-frame (no crop).

Me too, but I was in a hurry. I will pull the shot from the queue. In any case, I already have this shot of the same aircraft.

It's not always possible to get tarmac shots where the aircraft is standing alone.

There is a tail behind the aircraft here. A vehicle too.

Unfortunaley there is no light hitting the aircraft. The sun was obviously high and way off to your left. Most likely a rejection.

I disagree, if you look back at every photo there is always things you can do differently. In that setting there is nothing blocking the aircraft and he should be ok. take this.

It has some things in the frame but the aircraft is not obstructed and the shot is basically clean.
