What Is The Tolerance Allowed For Window Shots?

Mon Aug 20, 2012 8:45 pm

Quick question for my education:

Let me first say, I love this shot. Second, from what I understand from the rejection criteria, it seems to tick a few boxes in terms of things not allowed in a photo: window frame, reflections, etc.

Is this just a case of the screeners letting an obviously great photo in at their discretion?

I ask because I have a few shots I'd like to submit (quality permitting), but hadn't due to the window frame being in shot.

Thanks.

It depends if the window frame adds anything to the picture - at the discretion of the screeners. If you have a corner (or side) of the window in the picture which you didn't really want there or couldn't avoid it, it'd be a motive rejection. But as you can see from this picture, it does add something to it; plus it is decently enough exposed.

Posting some of your examples up here may help you better understand it.
It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Thanks. I think my examples are exposed ok - at least on the glaciers on the ground - but the composition is not ideal as I was forward of the wing/engine and as a consequence there is a lot of distortion on the window frame. Was the best I could take, but nothing quite as good as the example above.

Good to know though, in case a great shot presents itself. Cheers.
