  • I am not a screener, but I would disagree on the centering. There is a wider gap from the highest point on hte top of the fuselage to the top of the frame than there is from the lowest point on the bottom of the fuselage to the bottom of the frame, therefore the aircraft is too low in the frame - I have marked it in the attached so you can get an idea.

      I hope that isn't what it was, that seems pedantic even by JP standards. There are many photos on the site where the fuselage is not exactly 50% centered in the middle of the frame.

        Well, that is just how I center my images and I never get centering rejections - so was just trying to provide some insight - I'm sure a screener will correct me if I am wrong.

        • I suppose its possible, but I had assumed that the yellow horizontal lines in the middle were essentially "get the fuselage within these lines and its centered". The guidelines do not explicitly say that the fuselage should be 50% above and 50% below the middle yellow line, but if that's the case, so be it. It goes against all standard photography composition guidelines, but whatever.

          • another question for my queue - Are multiple photos of the same registration not allowed here? Different days, etc, but same aircraft.

            • Not sure if I want to give advice if you're going to be as dismissive as 'but whatever' to other photographers who are trying to help in good faith. I think I'll pass this time.

                If you want to stick to the guidelines, they do say "The photo has to look balanced. A good indicator for side-on shots is to center the area between wings and window line. If an aircraft is just about to touch down, centering the area covered by the aircraft and runway might also work." I would not say that yours figures in that first part either, so again, low in the frame.

                • Thanks for the feedback Mark, I appreciate you weighing in.

                  Dana, it wasn't my intention to dismiss Mark's feedback, I'm sorry if it came off that way.

                      1. borderline oversharpened
                      2. borderline (weak) contrast
                      3. overexposed/contrast
                      4. ok for me
                      5. cut off (awkward crop right side)

                        Yeah for #5 the crop isn't ideal. Might be able to tweak it a bit to make it less awkward, I assume ideally you'd want equal space on the right side of the engine...

                            This crop should be acceptable.

                            • I've exported the G700 this time with no sharpening from Lightroom. Is that better? Now it looks soft to me, but let me know what you think. If its too sharp I'll try to find some middle ground.

                              I've also attached another frame of the 757 that was rejected for rotation. This one should also be correctly rotated based on the verticals in the background...

                              + 2 others, not sure if I've asked about these before.

                              Thanks!

                                1. borderline overprocessed (dark circle middle of frame)
                                2. ok for me
                                3-4. borderline heat hazed
