Lately I uploaded a few shots which I had reservations about - but thought it would be worth a try. Today was my lucky day. One was accepted through the normal screening process, and TWO were accepted by Johan - after waiting for him in the queue for maybe 6 hours!
We all complain when our "good" shots get shot down, and frankly I thought the second one would get bad dark. It's SO frustrating to shoot a pic at night, upload it, and get BAD DARK. But DO NOT STOP uploading! Sometimes dark shots (like Ryan's of last week) DO make it in, and everyone can enjoy them.
Also the MD-82 shot from the roof of the Harvey Hotel - I thought it had bad motive written all over it - but the screeners thought otherwise. I'm so glad they included it in the database.
The moral for my story is - no matter how many rejections you get (and I've had PLENTY), no matter how "dumb" the reasons are (I've not always agreed either), KEEP AT IT and you too will have good days here on airliners.net!
Thanks Screeners and Johan for making my day!
(This is not a plugfest, by the way - I'm expressing gratitude to those who helped me!)

Quoting INNflight (Reply 1): Johan has nothing to do with screening photos anymore, so ' Thanks Screeners and The Head Screeners ( who now handle appeals & "left for Johan" photos ) for making your day '
Correct FloTro - you're absolutely right - I kinda spaced that. Thanks Headscreeners!!!
