After the recent "long queue" thread (with all its negativity), I want to start a new positive thread where we can all share in some screening successes and enjoy airliners.net. I beg that nobody turns this around into a negative mood!
My example is this one. Simon Curtis recently got his first photo accepted, and it's already very popular and a photo he can be extremely proud of. When Simon first submitted the shot, it was rejected for "badgrainy". Simon reworked the shot and resubmitted it and has a brilliant result. As a screener, it makes me very happy because we are all winners:
Please compare the rejected image:
with the (re-worked) accepted image:

Fot your information, Simon and I discussed this post, and he is happy to share the rejected image to illustrate the positive side of screening.
I'd love to see some other examples of where you think the screening process has helped you, or the site, to be better.
Now, keep it positive!
