Have a look at this one. "Angle of the camera etc etc"
( BTW, I am not going to appeal. )
You win some, you lose some ( who loses hee hee! )
I don't get many rejects, so I've got no problems sharing this one with you.
The 'other' site rejected it too, Well well, I wonder who? Are you reading this young man?
Check the trees. If I had the camera at a bad angle, they should be leaning to the left, shouldn't they? Take a note of the ones, especially at the right hand side, actually leaning slightly to the right.
We've had a heck of a lot of rain here recently and don't forget, it's the rain here that makes our whisky, so it they're leaning slightly to one side, that's okay!
You might also have noticed I didn't put a 'comment' in the remarks field to state that the pilot ...dived at the last minute to get onto the runway... which he/she did do actually. The visual approach wasn't very good. Those of use watching/shooting that B737 did remark that his/her landing was very dodgy to say the least. (I wasn't listening to the radio, so the gender of the co/pilot is unknown)
If I added a comment, would it make any difference?
Anyway, I won't straighten and resubmit it either, that would be cheating!

In my opinion as a viewer of the photo, a comment about the 'dive' would explain the somewhat un-natural approach angle. Sometimes a little explanation of the situation adds to the photo. I liked it.

That's a tough one. Without a reference, it's hard to justify the angle. If there had been a light pole, or a few good tree trunks, it would have helped. Of course, an explanation in the remarks would probably have swung the benefit of the doubt to your favor.

Looks like some of the trees are not vertical. But I trust your judgment . It does look, to a screener, that the scenery and the land and the aircraft are heading the same way, and that the photo musn't be straight.
