I also try to always add a comment if the image is a reworking of a previous rejection.
The only other time I might add a comment is for something that might help the screener - for example if a particular ramp or taxiway slopes. The chances are pretty good that the screeners have seen other shots from the same location and are aware of it, but it might just help a newer screener ask a question rather than reject straight away.
Before the recent change to the interpretation of "an obstruction", I might have added a comment if the obstruction was unavoidable.

I've done this a fair few times, especially for Aero India shots with no verticals in the frame for reference, as the Rwy there is ridiculously undulating.
I also tend to add a note if I'm uploading an aircraft that's new to the DB (new reg). I don't know exactly how helpful that is, but Dana recommended it once in a pre-screening feedback thread and I kind of stuck to it since.

In a nutshell, if a photo shows something out of the ordinary or something that might lead to discussions among the screeners or even a rejection, a comment is always helpful and desired.
Keep in mind that while it might be very clear to the uploader what his/her photo shows it might not be for the screeners who only see the end result, so if you feel something might need explaining then please do so. Sadly still too few photographers use the comment feature which often would decrease screening time.

Quoting ThierryD (Reply 4): If there is some early morning or evening redness in your photo, it might be helpful to make a note on the time of day as well.
Thank you guys for the input. I've mentioned in a couple of my uploads about the colour cast taken just before sunset but the screeners had other thoughts.
As well I had an Icelandic Air B747 that was not in the database for over 7 years but a ground power unit was blocking the nose gear and rejected for that on the second upload. I had no more room to move to get the shot. Oh well.
I'm a bit unsure about colour cast of shots taken before sunset. Late afternoon and early evening in late summer up here in Canada, is definately not a nuetral cast.
I will attempt to use the comments sections when needed,
