Rejected for motiv. I thought the motiv was pretty good, very good in fact. I don't think I would change anything if I rephotoshopped it. I like the colors and it's not like it's a grainy shot or too dark, or even blurry.
I really thought this would be a lock to make it and be a very popular shot like the one I did last year.
So do you guys want to see this in the database? Should I appeal?

Quoting JRadier (Reply 3): Such photo's are no longer accepted into the database (unfortunately)
Very regrettable indeed, and I question the sense behind that... I would have thought that high hitting photos are good for a.net because they generate more traffic, and thus more inome from advertising?

Ok so after re-reading the other thread I am a bit confused now. Apparently there has not been a "rule change" but now these photos that do not show an airplane, only light streaks, are now a no-go? Do I just need to get closer and have more streaks filling the frame or something?
I am a bit upset by this as I figured it would be a "direct add" type of shot.
I will go ahead and say that I love these long exposure shots and think they should continue to be accepted. Hopefully others will voice that opinion too and "the powers that be" will change their mind. Until then I will just leave it as is and I don't think I will appeal it.
