Fri Jan 31, 2014 4:24 am

I just found this photo:

and I'm confused. Look at the front section of fuselage. Is there any obstacles or I see to much? Is photo like this acceptable ?
Any explanations?

I thought the obstruction would only be okay if it was blocking less than 50% of the gear. I will say, it is very minor and not really "obstructing" the picture as a whole.

I was always thinking (reading rules ) that obstacles shouldn't "touch" aircraft at all. Last change was corresponding to the gear that saying what you quoted and it is clear to me. If this is ok (if I misunderstand something) then there is no topic.

Quoting gabik001 (Thread starter):

Inconsistent screening? Historically, this photo would have been an instant motive rejection and still should be. There's 15 other photos in the database so it's not that rare and the obstacle was avoidable so shouldn't have been accepted in my opinion. It's a great photo, great light though.

True.

The obstruction is tiny, but I would have to agree, if the photo had been taken a couple of seconds earlier, it looks as though any obstruction could have been avoided.

If that is the case, then I'd rather have it in (with a very minor obstruction) than rejected.

Irrespective of the rules here, it is a bad composition. Nothing should be growing out or into the subject. It looks like the a/c has been jacked up onto that post. But anyways here composition rules are meant to be broken, always subject has to be dead center and could have distracting elements like the one above
