    could you share those rejections?

    I would also add, that the rules, such as centering and too much dead space can be played with a little bit in a case, that you have a reasonable excuse for it.
    Forexample, in a case, that you have two aircraft in a close proximity, you can make the crop wider and cause the main subject being off-center in order to include both of them.

    Just like any other aircraft, the fuselage (including the tail) should be main priority to be centered. It’s okay to cut off the blades in cases where they don’t offer a reasonable crop, or if it’s a close-up crop.

    Some examples of mine:
    Close-up crop to avoid tons of dead space: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10595696
    Blades had a reasonable fit, so a regular crop: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10595648
    In this case I could’ve done either a close-up or a normal crop. I chose a normal crop since I would be cutting off a very small portion of the blades, and it looked a little awkward: https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10662144

    TLDR: You can crop the blades if necessary, it all depends on the angle and whatever works best.

    I would say it, that you shoud aim to have the body of the aircraft centred, but if to properly center the a/c means cutting of some parts, you should primarilly aim to have the whole subject in the picture.
    For the Centering I would use this photo of mine as an example, where in order to include the rotor, I had to make the vertical venter slightly off.

    Regarding the cut off blade I suppose, that you can make a slight cut until it looks as an intentional cut to make the aircraft closer, forexample cutting off the blade exceeding the nose might be fine. But in a case, that the rotor looks to be easilly includable it may be considered as defect.

    started a topic Helicopters

    Helicopters

    I haven't had much luck in getting helicopter photos accepted. Often the reason is "Bad Composition (bad framing / aircraft not centered)". I've also had helicopter photos rejected when I dont have all of the rotor blades in the photo, yet I see many in the db that are like this. I'm confused as to what I need to do to get these type of aircraft centered....and accepted.

    Do I need to include ALL of the rotor blades, even if it makes the actual aircraft body look off-center? Should I take into account only the passenger cabin and not the tail of the helicopter when centering? Is there someplace in the forums that is specific to uploading helicopter photos? Any advice is appreciated.

    Thanks.
Working...
