    Kevin,
    Nice shot of the a350, but again a little low in frame, which probably going to cause a rejection...Like others said, it's important to center the aircraft. Background can be important too, but less..You need to let go the "regular/standard rules" of photography in this hobby.
    Rule of thirds,etc doesn't always apply here..
    And keep in mind, most of us have more photo's rejected than accepted, certainly in the beginning.

    I’m not on my editing computer atm. So can’t comment on the quality, what I would say tho is that it’s always worth putting in the comment field why you have composed/cropped a certain way. Screeners will read that and make a judgment, sometime we agree, sometimes not.

    We are photographers too with different skill sets/ backgrounds and yes the site has guidelines.

    What I find frustrating are people uploading without looking at the guidelines, not bothering to ask here In the active and informative forum.

    Good on kevinrclemmonsphoto and you for engaging in this way

    Those that upload regardless take up more screeners time to check, when We can be reducing the queue
    Regards T

    Dear Screeners,


    Question regarding a recent rejection(https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=7390680). So besides being underexposed(which after seeing, I absolutely agree 100%, I went a little crazy with the de-hazing tool), the other reason was "Obstructing Objects / Foreground Clutter". I was under the impression that having other objects in the photo would be acceptable if the composition was meaningful. I can see what the screener was talking about in terms of other objects as I have indicated by the red arrows.

    My intent was to tell a story with that photograph. The story being that this airplane was arriving from Munich and that airport vehicles were starting to swarm to prepare it for its next journey. So with that being said, are photographs of airliners and airport operations acceptable? If so, what should I be looking for next time when I take a photo like that?

    Any thoughts/feedback?

    I have definitely learned to let go of the standard rules of photography. Not a bad thing. If anything, I have learned so much through each of my rejections. I have learned how to get a good photo with my camera alone. I am finding myself having to edit less and less in terms of centering, exposure etc and I love how many photographers on this website have created incredible documentation on their post-processing flows! I love photography and I love learning which is why I am on here. The biggest reward is when I get an accepted photograph, knowing that not only did it get accepted but that it also taught me something and therefore contributing to my skills.

    Hi Kevin, I was one of the screeners who rejected the image.

    Dark yes, as to obstruction/clutter I understand your point however the guidelines say

    3.5 Obstruction/Clutter

    This means that the aircraft is not fully visible due to it being obstructed by anything from long grass to catering trucks.
    Items of ramp equipment must not obscure any of the aircraft, including stairs, aerobridges etc. Exceptions may be made if the equipment forms part of the motive of the shot, such as in use de-icing equipment, or if the angle of the shot means only a small part of the aircraft is obstructed, such as ground power units/cargo loading devices.

    regards T
