I am quite puzzled since my uploads of today.
I uploaded the flight deck pictures I took on my last flights (747s/319...), and all of those were rejected as badmotiv.

I thought on this one the captain's arm might have motivated the badmotiv rejection, but on this one :

I really don't grasp the reason.

Note that I am not saying "the screeners haven't done their job well" (heck, I certainely could not do it better myself), I am just wondering if there is a new rule banning cockpit shots, or if there is something wrong with those pictures that I have not realised.
I most certainly doubt there is such a new rule, since a few other flight deck shots of mine have been accepted today (Comet, 727...).

Anybody could enlighten me ?

Thanks a lot in advance,

707

Edit : link now should work correctly

Too many reflections from the flash.

Also these type of shots tend to work best when cropped/shot symmetrically

Right also. I'll pay more attention on the symetry
