Pre-screening: Museum Shots

Mon Nov 23, 2015 2:35 pm

Hi all,

I recently went to Beijing and visited the aviation museums there, and I want to have some opinions on these shots I took.

Thanks for any help.

Cheers,
Yang

The first needs counterclockwise rotation

The second needs clockwise rotation

Third one is okay (But it would be nice to see the whole wing).

With the wide-angle shots, try to aim for a vertical center point.

Thanks Royal. Managed to get the Commando in.

Didn't want to start a new thread, so figured I might as well post some rejections from the museums in here too.

These two got rejected for "motive", with the first being rejected for "dirty" as well.

I can see where the speck is and the screener pointed it out (top right hand corner), but I'm confused for the "motive" part. "Motive for crop" was given as a "Personal" rejection, but I'm not seeing where the crop went wrong.

This one was rejected for motive only, with a message stating "sorry, too distracting by scaffold".

I had one similar image in the past rejected for the same reason, but I appealed the shot and it got in. To me, the scaffolds on the accepted shot actually look more distracting than the rejected one. On both, I made it clear that the aircraft were undergoing restoration:

Should I appeal for the second rejection?

Thanks for any opinions.

This trash bags look soooo disgusting... I'll dare to stamp them out or don't upload it at all.

UPS: Or remove them before shooting as seems there is free access o the plane.

Quoting kulverstukas (Reply 3):

Next time, I'll guess I'd take note of my surroundings before photographing the planes at a museum... Already got one image rejected for a guy picking his nose at the side of the frame, and I noticed that only after the rejection
  

Ah well, I guess I'll let this slip and upload another picture of a derelict Nanchang CJ-5.

This one got rejected for blurry and soft:

Is it a DOF problem? Museum lighting was less-than-optimal and had to use f/4, thus the blurry nose tip.
