I would like to start this thread with a request: Please dont argue over/about this photo and please be objective.
This photo just got rejected for Motiv. Yes I know Motiv is a highly talked about subject here and this thread will annoy some of you but please be objective.
Here is the photo:
My Questions/Objectives are:
a.) Why was this Rejected for Motiv?
I.) I undersatnd that airplanes with covers on are often rejected for motive
However this is different it is an airport operation as the result of
II.) I had everyone's permission to upload the photo. every appendage
visible is of someone at the airport who have verbally told me that
it is ok to upload the photo with them in it.
b.) Is it worth appealing? I have a drastically falling acceptance ratio 80%
down to 52% in other words one more rejection and my que limit plummets.
c.) is it possible to get it in the database.
Thank you and the only reason I made it sound so objective is because of the "argueing" going on about the cabin shot thread about champaing.

Even though some may think that, as the photographer's brother, I'm biased, I do think this is actually a rather interesting motive that should have been accepted to the database. (Allow me to say that I am one of his harshest critics... of the latest 10 photos he got accepted to take him over the 100 mark, I would have rejected at least two for quality and level .)
