Misty Morning Attempt - Whats My Chances

Mon Dec 01, 2008 11:10 am

i was near LBA this weekend and though it is impossible to get close to the airport, i managed to get this shot at 400mm

knowing the difficulties in getting an image accepted so i thought i would ask for opinions. maybe it would be better at 800 by 600??

i also have edited the photo to create

which is more striking but will my ideas be liked or disliked by a screener

your advices are appreciated and if there is a way to use this photo then i can supply the .dng if necessary

Hi Tom,

I'd say the quality of those 2 photos is not nearly enough to get accepted here.

First of all, the first image as you present it has some big quality issues. I'm not sure if that's related to how you resized it and saved it. We would need to see the original.

The second version would get rejected for manipulation and would possibly result in a warning from the screeners. It does not look natural.

And finally, 800 x 600 is too small for this site. Read the rules and guidelines provided at the upload page.
