Is This Centering Ok?

Sat Jan 06, 2007 1:36 am

Hi!

I've received a couple of centering rejections which has made me a bit unsure. What do you think about the centering in these shots?

I have tried to have the same distance everywhere.

Thanks for your time

If they were my shots, I'd keep more space on the right and crop closer to the engine on the left, to keep the fuselage more centered.

Personally I think they could go either way. The quality is there that the non-lit engine still looks sharp. I really like the color and contrast between the lit parts and the non-lit!

I'd be tempted to try to include the whole tailplane if possible.

Centeringwise, any better?

Yup, I think so. (my personal preference, I'm sure others might feel differently)

Why the need to have them so big? Why not reduce them to 1024 pixels wide. It's not worth it. I only have a 15" monitor and I'm sure many others do too.

I prefer it too. Thanks for the help!

Personally I think it is worth it and as long as the rules don't require a certain resolution I guess it is up to the photographer. I run 1680x1050 on my monitor, I edit the pictures mainly for my own collection and I will not make a different version just for a.net. If the picture is detailed, why waste details by resizing it to 1024px? It is always possible to reduce the size of a big image but not the other way around without major quality loss. And if someone would like to make a print of a picture they would enjoy the increased resolution. As long as a.net allows it I will continue to upload in 1280px, 1400px or 1600px depending on picture quality since 1024px shots looks really tiny on my screen and trying to view them in fullscreen looks like crap.

Would be interesting to know which is the most common screen resolution among a.net visitors. I guess either 1024x768 or 1280x1024.

Edit: I've been thinking about this for a while now, and I guess the best thing would be if the system could automatically resize a copy of all big images (over 1024px) that are accepted in the database to 1024px and show it when "Large" is being clicked. An additional size called "Full size" next to large would open the picture in the original full size. I guess it would be impossible to implement on existing images and it would take up more space on the servers, but it would make everybody happy.

This was published in 2006, need not be very reliable but the outcome is clear enough.

4. 1152 x 864 4%
5. 640 x 480 0.6%
6. 1600 x 1200 0.8%
7. 1152 x 870 0.1%

And the source for these stats is? Interesting stats would be what the most popular resolution among a.net visitors is. I don't really know for sure but I would suspect that a.net visitors have bigger screens and higher resolutions than the world wide average because of what we do (image editing).

Thanks Prat, I appreciate your comment. I too like the "dark-side, bright-side"-effect.

Probably only a fraction of the viewers submit photographs themselves.

Nope, many are poor like me, and it's a real pain in the ass on a 15" monitor to have to scroll up and down / left and right just to view one photo. If it's an exceptional one I don't mind but most pics are not.  Wink

you can get a 17" more or less for free these days (i gave my CRT away to a mate)... i cant think of one person i know who still runs 15".. unless on laptop but then resolution is still gonna be pretty high.

so id say the problem is on your end. I like highres shots. 1024 look like stamps on a 21" TFT
what seems to be the officer, problem?
