Photo Acceptance - Pre Screening (Gabriel3630)

Sun Mar 01, 2009 5:39 am

Hello,

I'd like your opinion about these photos.

I have tried to improve my abilities shooting and editing, since my camera is low (Sony H-50).


Bonanza.
ISO 80, 1/2000sec, f/4.5, with some flash.
Some times I'm not sure about motive. I think that is controversial subject.

Hold point, RWY 10, SBSV.
ISO 200, 1/200sec, f/6.3.
The quality is not good, (with a H-50, a ISO greater than 80 is a disaster), the question is what I did right and wrong editing, could be better?

I did a Black/White, what may you say about black/white pictures?

for the 737 the black and white doesn't work and the black and white and the color 737's are both very grainy and you may also have a motif rejection going there also

On the Bonanza I love the shot! Few issues though, should have moved the bricks and check the size requirements for the ratio. Seems wierd.

GOL 737 i dont see making it,quality and grain issues.

First one quality wise seems okay but bricks stopping aircraft might give it rejection,fix the crop up aswell as that seems awkward.

 biggrin  - Nik - I am not sure that the aircraft owners etc would have been too chuffed to see a photographer come along and take the 'chocks' off a plane's wheels simply to reduce the likelihood of a motive rejection on A.net - safety might just take priority there!

I think the 'chocks' are not the key issue here - it is the general motive you are trying to display, Gabriel. Remember that your shot has to have an aspect ratio between 3:2 and 4:3, so this photo is too 'square'. It depends on the crop of your original, but you may be able to focus more on just the nose/prop. Otherwise is it looking slightly awkward and unlevel.

The guys are right about the 737s - far too much heat haze to affect the quality, together with grain, softness etc. If you submitted that one it would end up with a long list of rejection reasons. The black and white one might just be seen as 'arty' by some (not here though) if it was even darker, but otherwise forget it, I am afraid.

Cheers.

Paul

Bonanza looks OK. Size is an issue here, and I'd rotate it anti-clockwise.

737s: Crop - too much space in the lower half, quality - heat haze of course, and contrast too high.

Some quality issues here - the heat haze, 'flare' and aircraft not sharp. Nice try anyway.

Granted but I doubt he would have had to worry if he removed them for the 30 seconds or so to get the shot. It not doing so he mostly guaranteed himself a motive rejection.

Hmmm the wheel an gear being blocked is pretty clear cut in the rules here.

I very much like the first shot. In regards to moving the chocks, I think you made the right call, not moving them. You never know what happens when you move them. Where do we draw the line guys? I mean, alright, we start moving chocks on the GA planes. Next thing you know, someone is going to move them on a large jet, and it'll start rolling. Trust me, even on what appears to be a level surface, allows for even jets like a Cessna Citation to start rolling (I know from experience).

You are serious aren't you  Wow! !

I reckon he might have had to worry if the aircraft started to roll towards him as he set the shot up. And then there would have been the expletives ringing in his ears, coming at him from all angles.....

I agree that those bricks (if that is what they are) are a problem, not least because of the relative focus they play in the shot as it is cropped. But I don't believe chocks per se are a problem - I have checked and there are countless examples of light aircraft photos accepted where the wheels have chocks in place. Granted, they tend not to have such prominence as in Gabriel's current motive.

Gabriel - whilst silhouette shots can be very popular, yours has a major problem in that the flare caused by the sun is far too significant in the forward fuselage area, guaranteeing a rejection.

Well, if chocks were only on the nose gear I would never pull them, especially just for a photo. You could have a real problem on your hands by doing so! On the other hand, if chocks were also placed on one or both of the mains, I would consider pulling the nose chocks...or I would chock the mains first, then remove the nose chocks. Of course though, I wouldn't do any of this without checking first with the owner or whoever is in charge!

I don't think chocks result in an automatic rejection, but in this particular photo, they are prominent enough that they could be a problem.

For me the shocks just add to the picture making it even more look like a small budget air museum.

If there is any way you can sharpen the nose a little bit, I would do so, because that chrome nose would really stand out in that pic.

Hmmm I doubt we will have photogs ghostriding 737s down the taxiway but there is ways of doing things.

Quoting Psych (Reply 11):

As I said there is ways of doing things, whether you wanted to move the chocks or maybe ask someone or whatever this is all semantics. Fact remains it will probably get a motive rejection. So rather than have a situation where we have to discuss why those chocks are a cause for rejection I am trying to explain why you need to keep this in mind when you shoot. All the other stuff is irrevelant.

For future references, lower the ISO to 100 or lower for daytime shots like the Gol 737 also work on sharpening and try to avoid spotting on days where it is extremely hazy and smoggy to get better results.
Hope this helped,

Thank you all for the advices.

In that case (B737) it was very dark, and some times the camera's preview is not accuracy.
Here in Brazil, specially at NE It is very difficult to take a photo without overexpose or hazy heat. the Sun illuminates very directly, compared to the northern hemisphere and places of temperate climates, where the light is more oblique and homogeneous.

About B737 photo my concern is about edition.

About Bonanza photo I really not remember that rule, in my opinion all that thins chocks ... are part of the whole aeronautics atmosphere. I understand the obstruction rules about thins like stairs, trucks etc. But I guess that is not the case.

About the backlit shot I must to say that is a montage, I just wanna to know if someone will realize that.

. ps: I never try to upload a fake photo.



Thank you all again for the advices.
Gabriel Nogueira.
