  • Hi,

    I wanted to say thanks to the screener who made a useful comment on one of my recently accepted photos

    https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9872521. I couldn't find a way to do it directly to her/him so doing it here.

    Much appreciated.

    • Hi,

      I'm trying to upload this photo using the aircraft's registration G-BGHU. There are a few photos of it in the database but when completing the upload form, the reg is not recognised. Any suggestions on how to work around this?

              Umm...what do you mean by 'now'?

              • About a year ago I uploaded a similar one and it was rejected with the comment that "we don't accept artistic images such as this one as it is not what JP is about". I've avoided uploading any like this but I have recently seen a few being accepted, despite the large areas of dead space around the aircraft. So I wanted to check if things were different now and if so, whether it met the criteria or not.

                Thanks

                  There has been no change in regards to accepting (or not) 'artistic' images in the past year (or past few years, really); each such image will be judged on a case-by-case basis. If there is a reason to justify large empty spaces or irregular centering, then the image may be accepted.

                  I can't speak go the 'few accepted' you refer to (message me privately if you'd like my opinion on a specific image from a third-party), but for your image above the centering is more than acceptable for me as it is obviously done to include the sun. On the other hand, the wide crop doesn't really for me as all there is is some clutter (actually kind of distracting from the nice sky) in the foreground that serves no purpose.

                  If it were me, I'd actually have gone with a portrait orientation rather than landscape to cut out the junk in the foreground:

                  • Thanks as it is very useful since I didn't realise we could upload protrait photos. It would also help explain why a separate image was rejected when I tried to do as you suggest, but in landscape, removing most of the sun. I'm assuming the portrait suggestion is the one you attached.

                    Thanks again.

                    • I had this rejection (too little/much contrast and bad info).

                      I just wanted to check which bit of info was wrong and suggestions for the contrast -assuming it's contrast and not an observation that it is backlit.

                      Thanks

                        This aircraft is not operated by the military.

                        Yes, poor contrast because the sky is much brighter than the subject (aircraft). If this is because it's backlit, probably not fixable.

                              I like my framing better, but this is workable

                              I wouldn't upload at 1920 though, much too soft for that.

                              • All makes sense so I made some adjustments and uploaded it. Will see what happens.

                                Thanks
