Help With This Rejection

Wed May 28, 2003 12:09 pm

Hi all,

I'm puzzled with this rejection:

It got rejected for badscanbadmotive. I thought the aqua water plus the great weather would make the photo of the JL B743 with the new livery more "tropical". Thanks for any feedback.

I like the idea of the photo but the scan quality just isn't up there. I'm sure the print/slide looks incredible though.

Agreed - the scan quality is low - too much contrast (the shadows are completely blocked up) and overall a bit soft. I suspect the "badmotiv" is due to the fence - you might have just got away with it were the scan perfect, but in general a fence running through the actual aircraft (as oppossed to below it) is grounds for badmotiv.
