  • Prescreening advice (2 pictures)

    Hi everyone, I was thinking about uploading one (or maybe both) of those pictures but I'm not quite sure if they could be accepted.

    Image one:

    Of this to be honest I'm quite sure it's going to be rejected due to the horizon being completely wrong, but maybe in some cases it could be ignored and it could get accepted.

    Image two:

    Of this I'm thinking it could get rejected due to the helicopter not being centered, but the idea of this picture it's not the helicopter per se, but the work the helicopter it's doing and the ground crew it's important too

    Ofcourse I'll remove the watermark before uploading them on jetphotos, and I'll probably have to re-crop them in 3:4 but before that I'd like to have an idea if there's any chance of being accepted

    thank you

        Probably want to center it a bit better and crop it tighter. It is backlit, but in this case I think an exception could be made. Horizon is hard to tell, but if you wanted to adjust it, CCW would be best.

          Thank you! I've recropped it and used the houses just above the pilot's head as a reference for the horizon, I don't think that'll ever look perfect since with the mountains here it's impossible to get a reference for the horizon. I do agree with the backlit comment, but also there's very little of the plane that is in a shadow (there were some clouds that scattered a lot the light). I'll have to think quite a lot before submitting this, especially because by acceptance rate it's already low and I'm not looking to make it worse

            Looks good to me. If for some reason this does end up getting a backlit rejection, let me know and I'll try to convince them otherwise

                Well, just got accepted!

                Another pic I'd like to get some pointers and a few questions about it.
                Should I crop it tighter?
                I have a strange feeling of having some weird problems with too much Magenta in the balance but it's weird because it depends on how I look at it, maybe some of you has a better calibrated monitor than mine and can tell me

                And about this second picture, my only concern is maybe the crop it's a bit too tight or it's good?

                  Is that not the same aircraft as the one accepted? It would be rejected for similar.

                  A bit soft, and a subjective decision on whether the rotor being cropped is justified.

                    Yes, same plane, it was the same flight but like 10 minutes earlier in another place. Thank you, i'll not upload it then

                    I feel like the softness could be related to the low resolution, to be honest in lightroom with the full resolution picture i can easily read the writings and count the rivets but maybe we're looking at a different kind of softness

                    About the clipped rotor, it's a bit of a standard for helicopters photography if you look magazines such as Verticalmag most of their pictures have clipped rotors:

                    Still, thank you for your help
