This picture was rejected for bad motiv.

Any thoughts? I don't understand it why this is badmotiv...

It's probably the flashbulb on the PFD screens. Maybe you can edit them out with photoshop. Would be better if they were up and running.

Could be, but photo was taken without a tripod...So I had to use the flash.
Do you know how to eliminate that flashbulb on the PFD screens?

Cool shot. No doubt about it, just clone them out.

Yes the flash reflection is a problem, but even cloning out the flash would still leave you with dark screens which frankly, makes for a very unattractive picture. Given that we have many, many cockpit shots of the more common types I would seriously question whether there is any point to uploading shots without the screens actually displaying something.

Its badmotiv for reasons of the reflections - you can't clone out the reflections because we've seen the picture now and if we see it again with no reflections we will reject it again because you're not allows to manipulate photos in that way. If you don't like the decision, appeal.

Hi all,

Thx for the comments.
No reason for appealing...time to move one!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Next time better...
