Uploading Naval Carrier Ship Photos

Sun Apr 12, 2009 11:02 pm

Some time ago I uploaded a photo of a U.S. helicopter carrier ship which was rejected for being a ship. I just noticed a carrier ship photo in the database. I'm a bit surprised and puzzled now. Can anyone give me more clarity with regards to this category?

Thanks,

That Carrier shot is nice though, huh?

It depends on the nature of the photo. Was the helicopter(s) a prominent part of the photo and clearly visibile? Something like this:

I debated on whether to upload this one but went for it and it was accepted on the basis that the helicopter is clearly visible and the carrier vessle added to the photo. If the helicopter(s) in your photo weren't clearly visible or obscured by parts of the boat, or too small, it's likely to get a motive rejection. Maybe you could post the photo here, it would be interesting to see it.

Hi Darren, the helicopters were just as visible as the naval carrier I came across in the database. Besides that it has the new Renaissance Hotel swimming pool as well pictured. Very nice in my opinion....

As far as I'm concerned, a carrier is a floating aerodrome. It should have as much of a right to be in the database as photos of any other airport, with or without aircraft visible.

But then, what would I know?  boggled

Unfortunately this was a long time ago so the photo is not visible anymore in my rejected queues. The photo got accepted on the planepictures website though. You can view my photo there by searching for CUR as location.

That is what I also said back than but it was still rejected.

I just took a look and see a couple pictures of USS Kearsage. From my experience around here, I'd guess they have motive issues with the helicopters being partially obstructed and the scenes being cluttered looking. The lighting is also less than ideal (slightly backlit), and there appears to be some chromatic aberrations just barely visible.

I like the idea of accepting shots of carriers in the same way as shots of airports are accepted. It would perhaps be fair to limit it to shots that accentuate their purpose as airbases rather than ships, so the one shot of the whole ship would be questionable in my mind despite the helicopters being mostly visible because it's a low angle shot with the flight deck not visible.

I wonder if a screener would perhaps weigh in with any thoughts?

The photo I came across on the airliners.net database was taken in the U.K. and also from sea level and not a helicopter view as in the above. I like the photo but at the same time it reminded me of my own photo which was rejected. This prompted me to raise my question in this regards.
