Wish I could tell you. I fell victim to this a few months ago.

I would say, and I may not be correct, but the others show a little more than just the engine, with other parts of the aircraft or its surroundings. I think you have a great shot there but just too tightly cropped.....

You can try and appeal

Your rejected shot is a much tighter crop.

Mark.
One day, I might be good at this...

I can crop it out and show a "bit" of the wing and I believe I would get the same rejection or a new reason like "bad distance"

Yep, Engine shots are very hard to get accepted. I think I only have 2 of them in the DB. Same goes basically for "ultra closeups" and "nightshots".

Bad Crop? No...
Wait for a valid reason from the screeners and decide on appealing.

Edit: Whats the dark spot on the top left corner?? Could be bad motive...

The Dragonair logo on the engine makes it appealing. Your shot is "just" a white engine without anything special, that's why rejected I guess.

A shadow?!?

I just noticed that the top left corner is also part of the aircraft reflecting a shadow(looks like an alien's shadow Big grin ). Maybe that maybe a cause for the bad motive.

They may be equally tightly cropped but one does have a bit of aircraft in the frame whilst the other has concrete in the frame... just a thought.

While a few shots like this have their place in the databace, - a few for each engine type maybe - nobody would want to see a million shots like this, so most of them get rejected for badwedon'tlikethemotivethatmuch really. So if you upload them you'll have to accept that screening for this kind of shots is a bit of a lottery. I think that's fine.
Just my view.

I agree with the others that said it is too tightly cropped. Most of those shots you show were shot at the same level and show a lot more aircraft. Yours is shot looking slightly down and all you see is engine and not enough strut. Plus it's a solid white engine.
If you can, crop it less close so you get some wing in the shot. I think it would probably fly.
