Re: General announcements & discussions

Wow... I haven't really visited A.net in years (or an airport as a photographer for that matter), but not much has changed in the last 7 years. Except maybe the traffic.

RE: A Better Understanding Of The 'centre' Rule

My (and many other photographers') most popular pictures here are off center... Which proves a point I think. At some point (when I was a screener) we became more lenient towards the 'centering rule', but seems like it has gone back to strictness? (I haven't uploaded for over 2 years now, so I don't...

I guess you didn't have science/physics class in school? It has nothing to do with your camera, Juan. The only thing you can do is to use a longer lens and be further away from the plane.
