Engine Motive Rejection

Mon Mar 26, 2007 4:30 pm

Hi all,


http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...tions/big/20070326_D-AELL-2ptr.jpg

I rather like this one myself. Any ideas as to why it was rejected?

Peter,
Nice shot but where's the rest of the propellor?
I thought most engine related shots were accepted mainly if it was showing something really interesting related to the shot,like fogging in engine(condensation),time exposure,undercarriage gear on touchdown with rubber etc.....

What you like and what screeners like and accept are two different things.... Smile


Cheers Mark.

That was also the first question I asked myself when I saw your photo, Peter.
You probably know how difficult it is to get such shots accepted; it's a big game of luck: sometimes you win, sometimes you loose.
This one is not for A.net but as Mark said: nice shot anyway!

What are you trying to show us here? The prop? the cowling? The spinner? Nothing interesting there to view really.

Sorry but I can see why it was booted.

Either you think it's a nice shot, or you think it's not a nice shot because the prop is cropped... don't be too polite Wink
Including the full prop would make a very different shot, that I'm pretty sure would have been rejected for not showing enough detail.

The full package of a RR Dart engine. I guess the bottom line is that this is judged not interesting enough without open panels showing the inside.

Yes, and I even support that, because I wouldn't want to browse through thousands of engine shots in the database. Wink

Thanks guys.
