  • Help with photo rejections. Bad Motive.


    Recently i have been uploading photos with many rejections coming up with the reason bad motive. Here are a few examples: is the biggest database of aviation photographs with over 5 million screened photos online! is the biggest database of aviation photographs with over 5 million screened photos online! is the biggest database of aviation photographs with over 5 million screened photos online!

    I dont claim to be an expert and have had fair number of rejects myself but I would say that you need to have a central point of interest in your shots and I guess it could be argued that these pictures donít have that.

    The first picture is of the air bridge with an aircraft in the background (NB I am exaggerating to make the point clear). The other pictures are really of two aircraft . I think the screener is trying to tell you that you should make sure your picture is of one aircraft. Extra aircraft in the background are ok as long as the shot is clearly centred on one main subject.

    Frankly I think these pictures are interesting especially the Cathay Airbus but perhaps not what Jet photos is looking for. A slight change of emphasis perhaps might prevent these rejections in future.

    Just my opinion others may disagree.

      I like the pictures, and frankly I don't know why they weren't accepted!

      I think they are quite nice!!

        I rejected at least one of them.

        It's exactly, how cja said: the pictures lack of a central subject you want to show.

        The MH 772 would be way better, if you would have taken the shot from 20-30m on the left of where you were standing. Then crop a bit tighter and it will look better IMO.

        The other two show two aircraft with no particular connection between them, placed somewhere in the landscape. I would have concentrated only on one aircraft and filled the frame with this one.

        Quoted from another topic: these shots look more like snapshots, than like photographs.

        Hope this helps

            Thanks guys for the help. Although my photos are limited by the capabilities of my Olympus C-150, i'll take your advice and hopefully you'll see some more of my photos uploaded in the near future.

            PS: I'll probabally see you around at the airport Longreach747/skycruiser.

                        They even rejected mine
                        I walked across an empty land
                        I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
                        I felt the earth beneath my feet
                        Sat by the river and it made me complete
