Technically, if the crew member is not blocking any part of the aircraft (hard to tell but it doesn't seem that that's the case here) then it doesn't fall under the 'motive' rejection category. However, as with most of the categories, it is subjective, and someone who might not be blocking a part of the aircraft but is otherwise distracting or detrimental to the image could cause a motive rejection. Conversely if a crew member is deemed an essential part of the image even though they may be blocking some part of the aircraft, exceptions can and will be made. If you look through the database, I'm sure you will find other images with ground crew in the frame or even partially obscuring the aircraft.

AIRLINERS.NET CREW PHOTO SCREENER
And complementing on what Dana said, it's a very nice image, with a wonderful play of shadow and light, and while keeping the dark feeling in front of the very bright light it's still perfectly exposed! While I didn’t screen it, I would have had no hesitation in adding it, well done Tomasz!
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!
