I just received a rejection this morning which is no big deal for me at all, but I was just wondering about the reason that it got rejected for. I mean, we've all talked about bad motive before plenty of times, but this one just kind of caught me off guard, since I have pictures in the database with the exact same motive. But now all of a sudden, this is supposed to be an undesirable motive for a.net?
Some help would be appreciated.

One difference I noticed between the rejected shot and the other two you showed is that the angle is slightly more side-on. I think the wingtip should be closer to the nose (or to the right of it) or it just looks more like an almost side-on shot with an awkward crop behind the wing.
However, motiv rejections can be very subjective. One screener might reject a photo that others would find ok, and I think that may be the main factor here.
