    Depends on the subject but I almost always follow the rule of thirds. If it's just a standard sideon, I let the aircraft (using the entire vertical space the aircraft occupies...landing gear to top of tail) occupy the middle third while the top and bottom third are empty.

    You also have to take into account when centering a profile shot , that even though there may be an even number of squares above and below the fuselage, tail will therefore come in to play , the easiest way to do this is when cropping using aspect ratios (OR hold the shift key down like I do) is to keep the crosshair in the centre of the fuselage , somewhere around the window lines but if you crop using the SHIFT key option remember to only drag your CORNERS in.
    Then you'd need to tak e a look and maybe lower it say a 1/3 of the fuselage height to compensate for the tail so tht although the fuselage isnt centred vertically it is indeed vertically balanced ,an uncentred shot is also a lot more noticeable in the thumbnail when screening than it is at 100% on photoshop.

    Georg,

    they both look to be too low, look at the fuselage of each shot and crop away about one centimeter on the top....

    Hi.
    would you please have a look on these two rejections.

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=881294

    http://www.jetphotos.net/viewreject.php?id=881289

    Two me the centering looks OK. I'll try not to center the plane on such shots because the tail would look too high for me. Any help would be appreciated since I had so many centering rejections lately when doing side-on approach pics.

    Centering the aircraft, just to make sure there is same space between the top , bottom and left and right of the subject is not always the best method. As mentioned, a side-on shot of an aircraft on approach is best centered by centering the window line. But there's more, as show with a few examples:

    [photoid=5690146] The aircraft itself is too high. With a grey or blue sky alone as background, it would look awkward. With the runway just a few meters under the aircraft, it looks far better that way, than centering the aircraft.

    [photoid=5679540] I guess it speaks for itself. The message would be totally different, if the aircraft had been centered.

    [photoid=5667668] Another very good example of a good composition, by dividing the frame in three horizontal areas with the grass line at the bottom and the wing line above.

    Just a few examples, where centereing an aircraft is not everything.

    I usually try to center it so that it looks good to me. I don't usually pull up a grid, or measure the spacing. I just crop around the image so that it looks properly centered "to my eye".....aesthetically pleasing if you will, and I have had very few uncentered rejects.

    Not if you fail to capture enough detail.
    The image can be altered,not corrected.
    The image you posted is underexposed,look at the detail on the fuselage.

    I set it to 0.7 because at 0.3 they were being overexposed. The sun was pretty bright. Besides, that can be corrected as well.

    Too high in frame.....



    If you are using the grid you will see the center mark as in the above.
    You are usually right with this on the center of the fuselage,or window line.
    You have had this problem for a while now................time to eliminate this from
    your rejections.
    Why is your camera set to EV- 0.7 on a relatively clear day?
    Underexposure is your next problem
