I guess my photography skills have gone down the drain! I can't believe the amount of rejections I've had lately. It's almost pitiful. I had another chance to get some photos of the C-5 that crashed today, and they were rejected for badquality. I had an improved version in the queue but it's dissapeared, not in my rejection list or acceptance list and no email about it. Any way here are some examples.

The first pic, I can understand the quality rejection. It's not the best but great shot.
As for the others, on some the edges of the pic get blurry, this could be because of the wide angle lens you use, but its not a great problem. As for the motiv, well, it pictures a cockpit, in flight, what more motiv is required! But there is something there that the screeners are seeing. Was there a screeners note at all? That would have been handy.
But this is far more important:
Quoting F4wso (Reply 1): As long as you are photographing for your satisfaction, you should be doing fine.
As for the acceptance ratio, well I wouldn't worry too much about it. It doesn't mean you are better or worse than others. You're in the same bracket as me!

As a screener, I can tell you that if there is a way for you to increase the quality of your shot just a little bit, it possibly will be accepted. The quality for such a shot isn't exepected to be perfect because it's rare.
