I am the first photographer who uploaded this Seaking on this db. Normaly it is not able to photograph this one, because it is standing in a secured area and is not visible in flight-service. It was damaged in the erly days and was replaced with a new one with the same reg (which you can find on this db)!
One picture during the day was accepted but now this one not for soft, grainy and dark! Well you will never have the chance to see this one moving via street by night to it´s new homebase again!!!
The second picture is showing an other Sekaing on the road at night! Also rejected with soft and dark
It is "interesting" if you compare this pictures with accepted picture here and read this in the rejection guide:
"Rare aircraft and new registrations will also be screened with more leniency. We understand that the term rare is subjective. By rare we mean individual aircraft (new registrations)"
The second picture was a 30sec shot. Sorry, it was windy, so thats maybe the problem with a slightly softness! (yes we are living at the coast!)
For the second picture I only had less one minute time to do it, because the military were discussing the problem with the trees on the right side! All the other helicopters were moved without standing-time!
Obviously the screeners are thinking the german navy is moving their helicopters every day via road and will place them only for me in the perfect light as long as I need to shoot them???
