Pre-screening: Motive And Off-center (Dysko)

Wed Dec 28, 2011 6:02 pm

I'd like to upload a shot like this:
http://www.golfvictorspotting.it/photos/ag/_MG_9526_111210.jpg
First of all: is the motive acceptable? Would be better a shot where the glider is in focus or where the towplane is in focus? Which registration should I put in?

Also, in a shot like this: http://www.golfvictorspotting.it/photos/ag/_MG_9582_111210.jpg
Would the off-centering (to show the motor glider taking off) be considered acceptable?

Thank you!

No, out-of-focus aircraft in foreground is too distracting, and doesn't add anything to the frame.

Should be ok, though it could stand being a touch higher.

Hi guys,

I don't mean to hijack the conversation, but I have a question regarding a similar shot (the first one) that I have that I was thinking of submitting. If you'd prefer, I can start a new thread about it, but I was trying to keep the conversation about this type of photo in one spot.

I also took a photo of a glider being towed from behind, but in my photo, the glider is in focus and the towplane is out of focus. Would both aircraft have to be in focus to pass a motive test? Or since the glider is in the foreground and is the main subject of the photo, would it be acceptable?

Thanks for any info/advice.

Would need to see the image in question to comment.

Again, dysko, I hope you don't mind me posting this here:

Here is the photo in question. Thanks for any advice on the matter!

Motive looks ok, but the image is too small to say anything about the quality. You'll have to post an upload-size (1024) version for any comments about that. If you do, might as well start a new thread.
