Hello all, a new Finnish member here. I've been reading these forums for quite some time, but only now managed to register myself.
The thing that's bothering me is rejections (yes, another idiot who's never satisfied!). Some time early this year, I uploaded 3 wing views to the database.....
.... All got rejected for badmotiv, and that's been puzzling my mind ever since. I'm not really complaining about the rejections, but I'd like to know what makes them badmotiv in airliners.net terms, so I can put my mind at rest.
For the future, it would be nice to know what does a wing view with nothing more interesting than clouds or a sunset/rise in the background basically need to have to be accepted at a.net (motive-wise)?

I think the thing is there needs to be an actual subject... maybe not such a literal or obvious one, but for example in the two shots directly above, in the one on the left you can see the aircraft shadow, and in the one on the right you can see the sun.
On many wing views I've seen without anything obvious of interest on the ground, the engines seem to be the actual subject of the photo; engines are interesting to look at, where a plain flat wing is not really.
I'm tired of being a wanna-be league bowler. I wanna be a league bowler!

-"I am not sure about the second one, are you sure badmotive was the only rejection reason? It looks okay to me.
Also, the third one does not look like badmotive to me, maybe there was another rejectionreason too? You can see all reasons when viewing the appeal page!"
They were all badmotive for sure. I uploaded them probably in february, so I can't see them on the appeal page, but I'm quite sure.

Well yes, you do have a point. In my above shots I was just trying to get something artistic, but there isn't really any subject. I guess the only way to get a wing shot accepted is to have something else than the wing in the photo.
