I know this wasn't the most high quality of photos I've uploaded but I really did have high hopes for it. Unfortunately the heat and engine vapors didn't me any favors, but I thought perhaps it would get overlooked because of the shots perspective. Is it worth an appeal or am I SOL on this one?

That is a very nice photo. Unfortunately I think that the distortion caused by the efflux/heat haze will attract a rejection as far as A.net is concerned. Even uploading at 1024 won't really make much of a difference to that. So I would advise against an appeal.

Quoting TimdeGroot (Reply 1): What's with the large size, I'll never understand that. If you already know the quality isn't that great than why not upload at 1024?
I tried at 1024 and the difference was so minute I felt it better off at the higher resolution. I personally prefer uploading shots at higher resolutions for the sole sake I believe they're more interesting to look at, especially with the high quality of monitors people use these days. If a shot isn't good at 1200px wide, I'd rather save my two upload slots for better pictures. I know this one was a bit of a long shot, but I thought I'd try as I really do enjoy the photo.
Thanks for everyones comments, I'll save this one for the personals.
