I can understand the badmotiv. I personally don't really like the whole "badmotiv" rejection category but as long as it exists, I think this photo would fit into it. There's just no real visual interest. You can't really see much of the airplane; no livery, no tail, no pilots in the cockpit (which can make a good photo out of a straight-on shot); and the sky is very flat so there's nothing else going on in the photo that would add interest.
I don't think there's really much you can do with this. Just shoot at a little more of an angle next time to get some more interesting details into the shot.
I'm tired of being a wanna-be league bowler. I wanna be a league bowler!

Well, it's ever so slightly off center, but perhaps not enough to really make a difference. It's also a little dark IMHO, and I can see a dust spot just underneath the aircraft between the MLG, one in the upper left and another slight spot on the lower left of the photo. Just for looking at it at a glance, I should think it would've been a baddirty/badquality reject. I'm not sure why they said badmotiv/badangle...there's no horizon to judge it by. What if the plane hit a gust of wind?? Who knows, just my opinion...hope it helps!
