please your opinion about a photo related COVID-19

Fri May 22, 2020 3:39 am

The following photo was rejected. (after appeal and 3 screeners asked for second opinion.)
reason: "Sorry the stairs ruin the pic."


Kitakyushu Airport is a small regional airport in Japan. Therefore, usually only a few aircraft are lined up here. However, under the influence of COVID-19, seven black and cool A320s, which are rare in the world, lined up in a small regional airport. So I hope you accept this scene as a photo that shows how COVID-19 affected the aviation industry.

what do you think?

Personally I think the stairs add to the image, the bright yellow against the black is a great effect.

You should ask yourself: would the photo look (significantly) better without the stairs (or if the stairs were on the other side of the aircraft)? My personal answer (and the screener's answer) is Yes. Hence the rejection is valid. The background story is irrelevant as those details are not visible in the photo.

Stairs block the wheel and it's not part of active operations (actively loading or unloading), this is the motive.
