RE: Pre-Screening

Wed Mar 19, 2014 4:13 pm

Question:

Would a glare from the light be a reject on A.Net? Just as you can see on the windows there is a light glare, wanted to know whether this is acceptable or not.

http://www.jetphotos.net/viewphoto.php?id=7779553&nseq=0

Also, how many pictures of the same Aircraft can be accepted to the DB, even though arrival / departure is different dates?

Thanks

I do not think this would be enough for a rejection.

For different dates there is generally no double rule, except this: "In certain cases you can also get this [double] rejection if there are photos in the database that are nearly identical to the one(s) rejected here, but taken on another date by you. Examples of this are photos of stored or preserved aircraft that have not moved since you took the other photos."

Hi,

The BA seems a bit dark and oversharpened. Nice shot thourgh! With some further tweaking, I think it should easily make it.

What is confusing to me is, if I center the body the tail will be filling more space on the top as the bottom then will be empty.

With this crop the tail tip and front seems to be balanced, however I want to know would this be sufficient.

I'll post the original file, it'll help decide the best crop for this.

I don't think I would necessarily center the body, but it just looks like there is more dead space on the top than the bottom. I think if you put the top of the tail and the tip of the port wing equally distant from the top and bottom edges that would look about right.

Hi,

Centering-wise, that looks pretty good. Not sure if you just cropped it and did not edit further, but it needs to look more like your first edit of this shot exposure and sharpness-wise.

Double Question..

I have this in the DB: https://www.airliners.net/photo/Air-C...d=2a4507d782b56eb025cfa2f7777d08aa

THIS IS NOT EDITED!Considering this is a similar angle but different date, will it be considered a double rejection?

It shouldn't be a double if different dates. Thinking the lighting should be enough of a sign to show the difference.

Hello All,

Can I get a pre-screen for Level on this one, to me it looks fine however I just want to be sure. I aligned it with the pavement, the left side of the pavement may slightly have a curve as aircraft's are coming dead on taxiing then making a sharp turn. The buildings in the background are also vertically aligned. I rather be sure I have it right, here is the image.

Thanks Kiffy! Ya gotta love the golden hour, honestly these angles are driving me NUTS! lol I tried balancing the tail and front wheel to have even dead space. If I move it up that will leave more dead space in the bottom, I guess i'll work on that. I'm sure you know what is best

That's one of the hardest angles to get good framing.

Here's a similar angle. Dead space on the bottom is fine, keep the tail high.

Just looking for info on "motive" as you can see grass has grown quite a bit and my worry is.... will that cause any rejections for the landing gears slightly being blocked.

For centering, I usually try and center the "visual center of gravity" of the airplane. So usually, the top of the tail will be higher than the bottom of the landing gear. Of course there are exceptions, but the shot Kiffy posted is a pretty good example.

Quoting mohammedzaheer (Reply 77):

Quite a strange angle on the MD-11. Overall, the photo is a bit dark (given the light), but I think I'd be OK with it.

Well, usually they like at least half the gear to be visible, so yours may be rejected.

Interesting how we all have different ideas on what we use to level. I personally usually will have the center weight of the image line up within the space of the windows on the plane (if it is a side shot). However, that does get a bit tricky when you are dealing with the 737-700. For some reason I had a tough time getting one of those accepted. Level and framing were just impossible on it for me.

Hello all!

Today I need some assistance with Level. Here is the original image...I resized to 1600px. It is not edited  

Here is the Edited version...

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/b...1405347151.2076a6-edy-img_7562.jpg

I'm trying to figure out what is the best way to level this picture, the right hand side is leveled as I can see however the left hand side seems like it's being stretched. If I do the left side the ride side would be messed. Unless I do the middle street pole level that and both sides with bill curving. This is where I need help what is the best thing to do for an image like this.

Thanks in advance.

I think you need to work from something in the center, so I would use the support post on the right side of the gas station canopy, which I think would mean a bit of CCW rotation. The light pole does not seem to agree with the post, and I would trust the post more.

You need to level based off the center of the image. I would use the light post at the bottom center for getting the level right.

Happens to all wide-angle images, nothing to worry about.

FWIW, you might get different results if you level before cropping than if you do it after cropping, because what's in the centre of the frame moves around with the crop. I've had some trouble with that in screening in the past, so it bears keeping in mind.
