I Don't Intend To Be Picky, But...

...I do wonder what images like these appear under the category "Night/Dusk/Dawn" photos:

In the sunny pics, the shadow in my mind gives away the fact that the sun is quite high up on the sky, and that it is therefore not a dusk or dawn pic.

So here is a question first of all for the screeners:

Are uploaded pictures checked to make sure they end up in the correct category?

Finally I'd like to make it clear that I'm not critisizing either screeners or photographers, I'm just curious that's all.  Smile

Guess what, I found this under "Classic Airliners"

While the 747-300 may be old, I don't think it ranks as a classic airliner at all

Human mistake!
Maybe some screening mistakes, the pics are ok but I think they deserve some category change.
Allways good to bring them up so the screeners or DB editors can correct them.

LHRsunriser, may I ask why your pic was rejected?
