But in defence of that picture you can see all of it, albeit a little way off. There isn't anything in the way. I would guess that the real problem isn't things behind but things in front that make the screeners look twice. However there are a good few pictures which has the view of the aircraft obstructed by something. Maybe the ruling has changed and you are just unfortunate. I know, however, that I would prefer to see all photographs without anything in the way but that is just my personal preference.

badmotiv sounds about right - the fence is the problem. Objects behind an airplane are rarely an issue (if they were, all we'd ever have on the database would be flying shots), but when something obscures even a part of the subject, badmotiv is always a possible outcome although not necessarily a foregone conclusion as other issues can then come into play. This particular picture's case isn't enhanced either by the fact that its a United 777 (pretty common subject matter generally, and already 18 pictures of N779UA in the database).
PS: Shawn, whatever happens to your own photographs, its still considered bad form to criticise other photographs in the database

I know where you took that from. If you cross the road and stand on a ladder, I'll send you a file to escape from jail with.
Seriously, if you want some side shots, go up to 96th ave, then south past the Continental hanger to near where the Sky Chefs building is. A little further from the runway, but the fence is less of an issue.
