    I would say no. There is the foreground clutter. You should be able to find the CN/ Registration though.

    Reg #: G-VIIH
    C/N: 27490
    A/C: Boeing 777-236(ER)
    British Airways
    Denver Int'l Airport - KDEN
    USA - Colorado

    not that you are gonna be able to save the pic though. if you look at the landing gear cover you will see the letters "IIH" those are the last 3 letters of the reg # and with the reg you can search the DB and find the C/N.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help. I took most of my pictures on a Cannon Powershot A540 and they were taken at Denver(KDEN) and LHR. Here are some more of my images are these one's any better. Also, I was wondering what the best mode to put my camera in when taking pictures of planes, these were all taken in landscape mode.

    Here are the links to the other photos:

    both BA photos have some window glare and are otherwise just plain boring. the F9 one has more foreground clutter than is acceptable. the best mode is either landscape or just normal mode. if you can i would suggest a higher end camera to improve your results. also if you don't see a photo like the one you took in the DB then it most likely won't get accepted. Happy shooting!

    No.1 The first BA nose shot is heavily backlit and being in a shadow as well doesn't help at all. Can't see that one being salvageable.

    No.3 The Frontier will be rejected for obstructing objects. One tip here. When the jetway is in position this angle of shot almost never makes it. Try to position yourself so that the jetway is behind the aircraft and keep lightpoles, window frames etc. out of the picture. Here's an example..

    [photoid=5939201]

    No.2 This one is very low in the frame which makes cropping difficult. When you take the shot try to frame the subject vertically and centrally level, leaving a little gap top, bottom and sides to allow for any rotation that may be needed.
    This was the best I could do with it but the quality isn't really there and it's grainy.

    Hi,

    A very big thank you to everyone for your help, but I was wondering if this picture is any better, I know it's blurry, but I am talking about positioning, centering, focus, window glare, etc.

    Centering: better but the A/C needs to be moved back some
    Focus:Better
    Window Glare: Much better
    Dust Spots: a few (dust spots are much easier to fix when there are no clouds in the sky)
    Foreground Clutter: bottom left draws away from it some
    Other: seems rather dull (uncolorful) so add some color. as you have said it is a tad blurry. Not the greatest resolution either it appears. it is also a bit soft and it seems a little overexposed. the high sun doesn't help much either.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your help. As, you said there are a few dust spots and the color is a little dull. Is there anyway I could more color in photoshop and possibly get rid of those dust spots.

    not sure of the exact tools cause i don't have PS but you adjust the saturation to your liking. and use the cloning tool to get rid of the dust spots.

    I think you'll find it will be rejected for backlit. Anything with the tailfin casting a shadow on the fuselage normally gets that rejection.

    Keep up the photography, the photos are getting better. Its good that you are listening to the advice we give and taking it on, in time you will be producing photos that are accepted here. We all started at the same place, im not ashamed to say that your photos are alot better than my first attempts. The camera being a point and shoot is lacking but you can soon learn to deal with these.

    exactly i started out with some horrible pics and was amazed at how they were rejected. if there isn't a pic like it in the DB then it won't get accepted i soon learned. keep practicing. it took me 3 years to get a pic accepted. the forums are a great place to get advise on what to and what not to upload. in the begining you should ask about every pic that you put in the Q. then you can start judging pics on your own. i've fianlly gotten 4 accepted. there is no better feeling than getting your first pic accepted, so with practice you will succeed.

    here's one of my first uploads to the Q:


    as you very well may have guessed it was rejected. i took that experience, learned from it and went on with life. as a personal rule for whenever i go to an airport i always take alot of pictures hoping that atleast one of them will get accpeted. good luck in the future. of course we have some new screeners so.....

    Hi,

    Thanks for your reply, well I know I am off to a bad start, but that funny Korean Boeing 747 sure cheered me up. By the this my personal thank you for all of your help. Here's one more of my shots, see what you think. I think I might a chance to shoot some more pictures in December, so we'll see how I do again.

    Ps. I cropped a little out, so if you want the original just let me know.

    Also I did a little bit of work to the old Frontier Airbus A319 shot, see if this reduced some of that foreground clutter and here's a more creative shot, I was trying to get both Frontier A319's in the shot, but the lightpole got in the way and ruined it.

    Here they are:

    #1:

    and #2.
    See what you think,

    These are the last photos I have, I promise and once again, I really appreciate everyone's help on JP.net.

    Hi,

    Chris congradulations on getting your photos accepted and thanks for the advice. Just wondering, if I crop out the bottom of the photo, with the man on the truck in front of the plane would that make the first F9 photo any better?
