  • Pre-screening advice

    Could I please get some advice on this photo from a screener.
    1. I am concerned I will receive a "bad motive" rejection as the pilots can be seen in the image, however my dad is the co-pilot and I have received permission from my dad and the captain to post this photo (with them in it) so if I left a "comment to screener" saying I got permission to post would I bypass the "bad motive" rejection
    2. I am concerned about the overexposed outside, I have seen many cockpit photos where the outside is very white (as a result of getting the correct exposure in the cockpit). Is my image correctly exposed?
    Thank you very much and if there is any other issues you pick up on please let me know!

    Motive is fine, but yes there is an issue with the highlights being clipped, and the contrast being a bit low.

      has the highlight clipping and contrast issues now been fixed?

        Better, but still borderline for contrast.

          Could I please have some clarification with regards to "similar uploads" as I feel like the screening team is extremely inconsistent in this area. I have uploaded the same registration, at the same airport 3 times (2x taxi shots, 1x parked) however, i have had a parked and a taxi shot (same airport) rejected for "similar", how does this work...?

              Ok, but this is my issue with the similar rejection. It says that you cannot have a taxi/landing shot from the same day however, I have uploaded a taxi shot and a photo of the same aircraft in the same sequence lined up on the runway. I have done this multiple times however, sometimes they are accepted and sometimes they're not. It's just frustrating that there's no consistency

                I doubt it, more likely you don't understand the guidelines completely. Can you provide an example of two images of yours of the same aircraft from the same sequence you believe might have been similar?

                  because after re reading the guidelines that should be considered similar, no? Yet I have had 2-3 of these sequences accepted. Yet a parked and a taxi shot are similar. It just has me quite confused as I feel like it depends on the screener

                    No. These two images show different sides of the aircraft.

                      How is this similar then. One is parked and one is taxiing. In my opinion they're clearly very different

                        Same side, both on the ground (same sequence). You can reasonably expect to get four images of any given airframe accepted - on the ground L/R side, and in the air L/R side. It is possible to have more than that, but the images would need to be significantly different both in composition, and date. The two images above have neither of those qualities.

                            Am I able to get this checked for horizon? It's levelled to all vertical reference points in the background however, it looks unlevel. Would I be best to level to the runway and ignore vertical references?

                              Verticals always better, unless it's the actual horizon. Looks like this one needs just a bit of CW rotation.
