    Thanks for the opinions.

    I was on holiday with my wife, so left my ladders, lawnmower and brush-cutter at home.

    With regard to the angle and undergrowth - I was only allowed to shoot from the path (so what I shot was the best I could get) and it's obvious the grass hadn't been cut for months.

    Indeed. Whilst it might be technically considered to be "preserved", it's apparent that little or no TLC is being administered.

    So...what would be real cool is if you could somehow frame the plane WITH a couple of the weeds...And I would also like to see more of a 1/3 2/3 composure that goes with classic photographs....the way it's so tightly cropped to within a foot of the plane...loses it's artsyness and seems like it's more of a cold documentation of a particular plane and "N-number".

    Hi, I was one of the screeners involved in this one. As much as I appreciated that it's a rarer machine and older, I also took a look at the other pictures we have in the database already and they were taken without the vegetation in the way, so in theory it is possible to get a shot without the vegetation. If we hadn't had any previous submissions it might have been a different story.

    Maybe I'll take a lawnmower and brush-cutter spotting with me next time!

    Thanks!


    Apologies, maybe I should have posted this in the Digital Photo Processing Forum?

    I think it's a beautiful shot.

    As much as I hate how snobby reviewers can get, and yeah, I see a cool old airplane in a cool environment, but the weeds are there and saying, 'look at me' 'look at me'... just something about the human mind and art and all... I appreciate the picture, but it's not quite a photograph.

    Maybe if you were on a ladder or something the 'height and intrusiveness' of the weeds would be diminished?

    Sometimes you have to stamp the foliage down to clear the image. You could try an appeal but it is likely to be rejected.
