Well, we have a lot of things to check on each photo.
But most important factor is the quality of the photo...
For me, the mentioned photo is/was badquality and the supplementary reason is/was badcommon.
So if you have an excellent quality shot, disregarding the location and quantity in the DB
, it will get in for sure.
But location will not get priority on quality for common things unless the location is VERY very rare....
But as said, each photo is judged on a lot of factors and the combination of those will gives a result of acceptation or not.
Hoping this answers your question,
