Don't get me wrong, this picture from Felix is fantastic, love the milky way. But, I am thinking if the acceptance rule has been bended too much for this one? It is hard to see the window frame, and not much else is from the aircraft.
Last year, there was another fantastic shot of milky way, but that one has the wing and winglet.

The picture gives a rare view from the front window of the aircraft. One does not want to see the window frame but the view. A more prominent window view would actually be a distraction from the content.
I agree with the screeners and i do not see it as "bending" of the rules. What a fantastic picture AND addition to the database. Well done Felix!
Again, I am not saying this picture is not fantastic. But, I thought the rule here is more about aircraft/airfield, etc; picture get motive rejection if not clearly shows the aircraft or even just shows too little aircraft on the picture.
Honestly, if not seeing this picture on A.net or reading the comment, it is a bit difficult for me to tell this picture was taken from the cockpit. I guess if this picture can include a few instruments or knobs, that would be more clearly shows the cockpit, and the picture would be more interesting too!

...and this is why we will never be able to please everyone
The rejection guide clearly states that we may make exceptions to motive and quality standards for creative or exceptional images, and this one certainly qualifies for that. I was glad to have screened it.
