I really like it, and am kinda disappointed it didn't get in.
Can it be saved in any way? I have some room left for a different crop if needed.
Also, what I'm about to say is probably not the wisest thing to do, but I'm saying it anyways.
Why can "boring" engine closeups from the side be accepted, while a shot like this can't? There are plenty of examples in the DB of this. I'm not out to diss anyone, but I'm just wondering about this...

It could be because of the crop. I read somewhere they reject if its an uneasy crop. I myself think it's uneasy being off centre, and I'm really wanting to see the remainder of the gear thats covered too...

Great shot, which I would appeal. Even if - based on my 6 year long experience here with only one accepted appeal in this time - it will most probably be rejected again (for whatever reason), what can you loose? OK, the acceptance rate will drop again, but that's really not the end of the world, otherwise I should jump off the window right now

Too bad. Don't let it discourage you though! It was a great shot in my opinion. It's nice to push the motive limits every once in awhile, whether it's A.net material or not. You never know when you might get something great!

I love the shot, it's amazing, but in my opinion, the angle it was taken at is too shallow. If you could be just a little bit more off to the side, where you could see fan AND the side of the engine, that would be ideal.
