Photo Acceptance - Post- Screening Level(wilco737)

Fri Jun 26, 2009 8:18 am

Hello everybody,

this is rejected for level:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/rejections/big/20090626_b1245436963.1744img_5668_u.jpg

I played around in PS a bit and not sure how I could make it level or what take as reference as level.
Should I take the glareshield as reference? Then it looks like this (ignore the quality, I just rotated the already edited shot to see how it works):


Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 683 File size: 498kb


I am not sure, but somehow this doesn't look right as well. Maybe something in between? The angle makes it difficult for me to make it level so that it could get accepted.

Any feedback/ opinions/ help appreciated.

Cheers

New edit is much more balanced IMO, first one looks awkward, I am involuntarily tilting my head.

That looks better to me level wise. It's often tricky leveling those with the distortion cause by wide angle lenses. I normally use the horizontal on the top of the panel or the verticle on one of the displays in the centre of the frame. After that, it's just judgement as to what looks level. I think your main problem it quality, it's looks blurry so I don't think there's much you can do with this one. It's a great insight in the flight deck from the right seat though.

Ok, thanks for the feedback. I'll take another try later today.

Maybe, maybe not. It was rejected for level only after being in screening for 13 hours. I don't know...  confused

Hi.

I think the second attempt is much better as well. If you stare to the second picture and then, return to the first one, you'll see the difference.

Level on the centre verticals, which in the first shot are leaning heavily to the right

A cockpit dashboard is tilted upwards a bit. Putting the instruments vertical doesn't make any sense to me. The first edit gives you the impression your actually sitting in the seat looking down at the dash, the second one look like you're looking at it from a beachchair. Maybe it can use a slight rotation CCW, but not that much as shown above.

Thanks everybody for the feedback.

Looks like I will not be able to get it 100% level. Tim said using the centre verticals as reference, but that doesn't look right to me as well. That's somehow not the way I see it when I am sitting in the seat.
Off to my personal collection.

Thanks again.
