|Quoting TimdeGroot (Reply 3):|
Perhaps it was just some advice from the screener, and the badmotiv was for something else...
And I have to agree with that comment, frozen props are not nice
Tim is absolutely right. I rejected it for the other reason(s), and also attempted to provide a useful tip, suggesting that such an image would be improved in future if the props were not frozen. I agree my wording could have been better. In my head saying "frozen props not nice" sounded like a word of advice rather than an explanation for the rejection. In retrospect I was wrong and should have chosen different wording.
I can categorically 100% guarantee to you that the image was NOT rejected due to the frozen props.
I hope such complete honesty is regarded favourably by you, TFSPhoto. There is no room whatsoever at airliners.net for dishonesty or fabrication of facts, wouldn't you agree?
PS To everybody - while frozen props are certainly "not nice", they do not influence the screening decision.
PPS After posting the above I found the rejected image in the appeal queue. It was rejected for "badquality" for the quality (the primary problem), "badmotiv" for composition (which is borderline, agreed) and the "badpersonal" was an ill-fated attempt at advice. It was not
rejected solely for badmotivbadpersonal
