Motive Help

Tue Oct 02, 2007 12:10 pm

Hi All,

This photo was rejected for 'motive':

As there are plenty of pictures in the DB featuring runways on final approach, I don't see why there shouldn't be pictures of them taken at other stages in the circuit. I suspect it could be rejected because of "too much of the airplane" in the shot. Would it be more acceptable like this?

Maybe I'm wrong, and this 'motive' is just totally unacceptable, full stop?

Any input would be much appreciated.

Cheers,
Andrei

I think that's your answer.

With this image you're probably midway between the 2 "acceptable" images for A.net... No aircraft in the view so you just see the airport/runway, and a wide angle view that shows more cockpit (and maybe less pilot).


This photo could well find its place in a learning to fly book/site that shows what you should be seeing at a particular stage in the circuit.

I'm with Olyman720 on this. Not enough of the aircraft. The motive seems a little vague. Nice shot anyway but maybe a different composition next time will see you right.

Regards

Hi Andrei,

Quoting Oly720man (Reply 1):

I think that's the point: It's not a window shot (clearly) and it's not a cockpit shot, but somewhere in between. That by itself is not enough to kill it, as long as you have a clear motive/reason for your crop, but honestly I cannot see any reason why taking a window shot from the other side of the cockpit might add something to the window view...
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!
