And I'm wondering if this has any chance?

Thanks much,

Yep. When you click the thumbnail, and that small shot comes up, click the "View photo in full size" link above it, and it'll show my 1024 pixel wide shot.

I don't think its gonna be ok.

Reason?

Your's has alot of foreground clutter, the other doesn't therefore does not distract the viewer from the subject.

Plus, I don't know if its my monitor here, but your's lacking quality sorry to say.

Hi San747,

I think your picture is risking a rejection for distance, motive and quality. The other (great) picture you posted was
1. cropped very tight as to have the airplanes as big as possible in the frame (yours not => distance).
2. gives a clear view of the motives and shows them in a different and interesting way (yours has foreground clutter and actually that LH in the back distracts a lot => motive).
3. has no quality problems at all (yours is grainy, oversharpen and contrast => quality).

Mainly because of the motive I would forget this one and try a different spot next time!



Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!

OK, I understand. I wasn't too optimistic about it anyway, I was just wondering if there even the slightest chance... Thanks much for your help!
