I understand the double, since I have another shot in the database (same day, same side of the aircraft), but I had decided to upload anyway, given that there are only three shots of this reg. in the database. I thought this motiv was different enough (close-up, showing some details which can be handy for aircraft modellers...).
The question I have is thus more related to the motiv rejection part. Is it because of the steps attached to the aircraft or is this type of close-up not wanted?

not sure about the motiv, but you might as well have gotten NOA_Quality or NOA_Overprocessed for your excessive use of the shadow highlight tool showing up right underneath the wing and on the belly. The photo is rather grainy right there.

Despite all this, I´m not sure you´ll pass the double cut. Be sure to include a message to the screeners explaining why you´re uploading this double shot.
Could you paste the link to the other photo from the aircraft, so we can see it?
Good luck with it.

I had put a note to the screener that I was aware that this would be a double (given that it was also my shot, on the same day and showing the same side of the aircraft), but I also noted that I thought this close-up shot was a different motiv.
I was not surprised with the double rejection, but I just want to learn more why the shot was a not acceptable motiv.
After all the feedback, I assume that it is indeed the steps that are attached to the aircraft ( as is often the case with Swedish aircraft) that caused the motiv rejection.
