Henk,

good to see you again. Welcome back.

What do you exactly mean by the main interest item (I would say the plane) Do you have some samples to look at?
Btw....if you have a chance check out this link: http://planecatcher.com/IGRR/Centered.htm

Well, I had seen the page.
http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r..._25_feb_2006_yum_harrier_1_neu.jpg
On this shot my point of main interest was the cockpit and the pilot looking into the air where he is going to show his display in a minute.
I cannot got lower, since this is basically the whole frame. The Cockpit is in the middle of the frame.

Henk,

I personally like the shot but since I am not in charge of setting up the standards, and by anet rules I'd say this is a no go.
too much dead space on the upper part of the image.

It would be different if this was shot during a phenomenal sunset and you could see all kind of different color and the sun above the a/c.

Hope this helps

The photo shows the nose of the plane, and it's too low in the frame I'm afraid. I don't think that's an a.net thing.

If you like, you can try to crop somewhere behind the nosewheel, losing space on top.

It's even too high in the frame now IMO, and I wouldn't cut it on the left side.

Hmmm, I do not know wether I can get this pic in an accepted ratio keeping my intended composition.

Thanks, Henk

Well for me personally it is to high!
I did my shot as I wanted to do it but we'll see how the screeners see it.

Following on the same idea, I recently had a photo rejected because of not being 'Centered'. My question is this; I've had previous photos rejected for this reason because I centered the fuselage, which resulted in cutting off part of the wingtips. In this photo, http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/r...jections/big/20080114_IMG_0185.JPG I cropped it so that the entire airplane is visible, yet I still got the 'Centered' rejection. Which way do they want it? The whole airplane including wingtips? Crop to remove the wingtips? Or does A.net only want 90 degree side-on views so the wings don't extend beyond the fuselage?

Quoting HAL (Reply 13):

David,

That one was rejected for the vertical centering I'm sure. There's a relative emptiness felt in the bottom half of the photo. This is because you vertically centered the fuselage, ignoring the fact that the aircraft has a tailfin. The plane should be a bit lower, but not too much. Balance your subject in the frame - try to think in areas, masses, not distances.

Don't chop off wingtips in a shot like this. The horizontal centering is OK here, although I'd crop closer to the wingtip than to the nose because the wingtip has little visual impact. Throw your ruler out of the window.

Cheers,

Peter Smile
