Yes I am seeking for an sympathetic ear here! You are right!!!
For me this screening-system is simply a farce! Why? The screening system is working unfair and is only working with "how we can reject this picture?" And it is obviously working with vavoritism. It is sensless to discuss that here!!! I am not the first one trying to show this!!!!
I am not angry about major faults-rejections! Yes, sometimes my pictures also have them like the borders of the last session!
But to reject a picture with "to much orange light" of teh sreetlights is very arogant even when I know none of the screener has ever been there!!!
And I can discuss with you endless-hours about some level-rejections on airflieds I am familar with because I fly there, but your screeners have never been there!
I know screeners are spending their free time here but also the photographers do! And I know a lot of photographers, who quit here because they do not feel welcome here! And it is multiplicated especialy if you are trying to show the non-standard.
You might know that it is much-much easier to show a 737 during landing in normal light condition than doing for e.g. an Air2Air during night!!!
And if you are showing shots like I showed/discussed above and get them rejected I have a question about what your screeners are doing? Only looking FOR
PIXLES? Or they are looking FOR
PICTURES? I think the first one!!!
If I am thinking about f.e. the unique pictures about the King-transportation I would not think about what other pictures I am missing here!!?!?!?!??!
To bring this to an end:
After 231 pictures, 711.000 hits on them, some "Photographers Choise", some "Top of the day", uncounted positive comments to my pictures, I will stop uploading here now!!!
One year ago I ask a database-editor to kill my account and delete my pictures, for the same reason, I was requested not to do so and still upload them, because my picture are showeing intersting non-standard stuff!
Nearby 50% pictures of the airfield Nordholz (one of the biggest military airfields of Germany and the only German naval-airbase together with pictures from one of the biggest northern flying-clubs) will be effected!
Sorry for that!
