Post Screening - Centering

Mon Oct 01, 2012 7:57 pm

This photo has just been through the screening process and rejected on the fact the aircraft is not centered. The comments from the screener mention the aircraft is "too high and far left in frame". I have looked at the image and am unable to discern it being off-centered.

Is anyone else seeing it? Should I appeal, or recrop and edit?

Thanks for the feedback.

It's a justified rejection in my eyes. The aircraft is too high in the frame. You have to take the large tail in to consideration with this type. There's a touch too much dead space in front of the nose as well.

Far too high. There's so much deadspace at the bottom of the image. It's not always about lining up the windows to the middle of the image. And yes, it's very slightly to the right - a bit pedantic IMO but you could also crop it closer.
It's all about the destination AND the journey.

Ok, I went back through and did a little more with cropping and centering. I think the picture now is probably cropped to much to the point of losing quality, however I do want feedback regarding centering going forward.



Thanks again.

Centering should be passable, but looks a little oversharpened and noisy.

Thanks Dlowwa.

I seem to always have a problem with either over-sharpening or under-sharpening. So I went back again and tried again.

Better, though still a touch sharp.
