Help With These Pictures

Thu Sep 13, 2007 10:54 pm

I'm running out of ideas on how to impress the screeners now and would very much like some help improving my pictures. I've had a few rejections lately for centered IMO the pictures are well centered, but it's not my opinion that counts is it? I've been browsing these forums and still I'm quite unsure about what centered actually means. There are many ways to have a picture centered, especially when we are talking planes with the wings and fins sticking out. So should I include fins and wings in my centered measurement. There are angles where the fuselage is not the part of the plane that is sticking out the most. Sometimes this will be a rear wing if the picture is taken slightly from behind. There's also the tailfin. Should I have equal space from the top of the fin to the edge as I have from the floor of the plane to the bottom edge of the plane? Or should I make sure the fuselage is centered and allow a much smaller gap from the fin up?

These are my two latest rejections. First one is for distance and centered.

And this one is for overexposed and centered. I sort of agree with the overexposd thing, but I did that because I got a rejection last week for contrast. Apparently the (non-white) SAS wasn't quite white enough so I boosed up the whites on this pic and instead got a rejection for overexposure. The main thing however is the centered. IMO this is centered.

First pic is a little too far with the crop and a bit low in the frame. Try to work on your framing when you shoot and get the subject in the middle as best you can. Makes post processing much easier.

Second pic is a little overexposed. As for badcenter it's close but it does look a little off. Maybe a tad too low. Also I wouldn't overexpose to combat other problems. Check your WB on your camera and with a fuselage like that get it in the right light and you should be fine. The light you used looked ok for that shot. The right WB and exposure would have looked good IMO.
Hey that guy with the private jet can bail us out! Why? HE CAN AFFORD IT!

Thanks for your help. I recropped the first one and resent it. The second was overexposed beyond saving. Still no good though as it was rejected once again, for quality and blurry this time. There's always something new to complain about apparently. I guess I have to give up on these two pics and try something else. I had a few more decent pics from that session. Felt I was close with the first one as there were no quality issues on the first rejection as I've had on my previous ones. 0-7 ratio now  Sad
