  • Advice on getting photo of my aircraft approved

    Hi everyone,

    Hopefully, I can get some advice on how to get a photo of my aircraft approved as I've had a few rejections and on the recommendation, I've come here for advice. So first thing, I'm using an iPhone 11 Pro as a camera, is that a deal-breaker to start with? I don't own an SLR anymore, gave that away a long time ago.
    Going to attach a couple of photos. First one is the original that I took next to my aircraft and just resized to fit the 1280 max width requirement. A few things came back; too dark, not level, too far, too much dead space. I had a quick look at other photos of similar aircraft on JetPhotos and thought, let me edit this photo in the Photos app and see if I can improve things - that's the second photo. This one came back with one comment; "photo outside the valid size ranges". The Issue is that if I increase the height in an attempt to get to the correct aspect ratio then I'll fall short on the "too much dead space" issue.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    Horizon is still way off. Yu want to use vertical in the centre off the image as reference.

      seahawk thanks. Does this look better (editing in Pixelmator to show vertical reference alignment)?

        Uploaded this one. Light pole in the background is perfectly vertical but review still says that horizon is off. I think the issue is that the paving where the aircraft is parked is slanted. Can't upload anymore as I've reached my queue limit .

          It's not the pavement. We'll look at the vertical references in the background before anything horizontal. In this case, a little CW rotation is needed.

                  Unfortunately you cannot receive preferential treatment. You will need to wait the standard time until you regain your slots.
