Hello, This one got rejected for needing CCW rotation, but I'm wondering how to determine when the photo is level or not. There are no obvious vertical objects and it was not taken perpendicular to the runway, so I'm not sure what to use as a reference. Any suggestions or tips? https://imgproc.airli...Jump to post
The prio guidelines now say that if it's a first visit for a type and airline it qualifies for prio. As a general rule, if we don't have certain type of aircraft in the db from that airline at that airport, it can get prio screening. Hi Daniel, Thank you for your reply. Would you be able to comment...Jump to post
Hi again dutchspotter1 We can't dispute you're right. It has been there a bunch of times before. That said, this image is the first photographed visit of that model by the operator to AMS which means it received priority screening in line with our rules. Please note: Photographed visit not just a v...Jump to post

If screeners were to not allow it, then no one would have any idea what that plane looks like, and there'd be no photos from KTTN's ramp area. Just out of curiousity, have you ever considered the possibility that perhaps not each and every location around an airport may be suitable for taking HQ av...Jump to post
planespot wrote:Do you think a better shot could have been taken?
What exactly are you trying to shoot from an airplane window? Another airplane that is flying miles away or the wing of your a/c? All the factors you listed are important points but I would like to add one more: the less mm you are using, the sharper the results.Jump to post
Thank you for your responses. I get that some of these issues are subjective (as illustrated by the contributions from Tim and JakTrax) and ultimately it is up to the owners/screeners to define the acceptance standards. My point is the discrepancy between the "mild" screening on motive/com...Jump to post
Hi Paul, Thank you for your response. My comments indeed do not apply to vintage photos. Here are a few random examples where I think stricter screening could be applied (or at least considered) to ensure a consistent level of high quality standards. 1. Lots of distracting clutter (fence, ramp equip...Jump to post
Dutchspotter1 you're referring to our Motive rule. Thanks but that seems to cover merely distance/centering/obstructions. I was more referring to things like distracting items (fences in the bottom, lampposts in the back, taxiway signs stuck to the a/c) general backgorund issues (hazy skies/flat li...Jump to post
Here is a general question about quality standards: do photos ever get rejected for bad composition or are all photos potentially acceptable, regardless of angle of the aircraft, regardless of what the background/foreground looks like?Jump to post
Can anybody point out the difference in exposure between these three photos (of which the first one got rejected):

We changed hands again about four years ago (maybe six months after the migration), and not long after, development to the site pretty much halted. I don't see that changing anytime soon. It's frustrating for all of us as well, but there's nothing we can do about it. Makes me wonder if anybody has ...Jump to post
There is not one answer for such a question. It depends on your personal quality standards, your budget, your photography style, which camera you have, what and where you want to photograph, etc.Jump to post
I'd suggest to start with the basic skills of aviation photography first and not bother with panning shots and prop blur at this point.Jump to post
I'm sorry but what exactly is your question? If you've been looking at the photos on this website for years it shouldn't be too hard to notice the difference between the photos on this website and yours. First I would suggest to read the manual of your camera and lens and make sure your settings are...Jump to post
Has Boutique Air been flying anybody on their PRC flights in the first month of service? Boutique is flying PHX/PRC/PHX? Since when? Either I didn't get the memo or I've forgotten (which is entirely possible!). I remember about their announcement to start PHX/PSP but not PRC. https://www.boutiqueai...Jump to post
Curious why this one isn't considered oversharped:
I'd agree with the screeners, all of them seem oversharped which is especially obvious around the titles/registration. Not a big surprise considering that you photographed mostly moving a/c in darkness/low light conditions. On the other hand, the screening pace has picked up significantly the last f...Jump to post
Curious if other people think this one is right in frame and underexposed:

So did I and to me it seemed that the increase in exposure for the sky is larger than for the aircraft. Because, if I'm not mistaken, with the right slider you just brighten up the lighter parts of the image (in this case the sky) rathern than the darker/shadowed parts (in this case most of the airc...Jump to post
jelpee wrote:I took a look at the image in Photoshop. If you drag the right end of the histogram over from the current 255 to about 230 it should brighten up the aircraft without blowing out the sky.
The 787 was shot directly into sunset, the second is a 1/20th drag of an Airbus in complete darkness. Without having even seen the photos, I can already tell by this description that a rejection for noise and underexposure doesn't come as a surprise. Most photos on this website were taken during da...Jump to post

The current guide says "If there are more than one aircraft in the photo, type the registration of the most visible aircraft (the registration(s) of the other(s) can be mentioned in the caption field)." .....We know that there will be gray areas. Exactly, this will leave too much room for...Jump to post

Since there is not one obvious subject aircraft in these overview photos, wouldn't it make more sense to leave out the reg/aircraft type/airline entirely? Perhaps it's better to mention this in the comments section where you could include multiple (visible/known) regs and other details. That would a...Jump to post
Are you suppose to send the screeners an email as well when requesting priority screening? No Then second question, if you do request priority screening and the screeners feel it doesn't fit the criteria, I suppose the photo will remain in the queue but how do you know that it was "assessed&qu...Jump to post
