I'm not particularly surprised by the reject in the link below, as it was a bit of a gamble in the first place. My inspiration for taking the picture was the excellent airport overview shots of Manchester, UK - if you do a search on Manchester with a category of "airport overview" you'll see what I mean. Very nice and very interesting shots. My image was rejected for both softness and motive. The softness I believe I can fix by using another shot from the series I took. Motive I'm not so sure about. I know that having an aircraft partially obscured by a boarding gate is not something that's generally acceptable here, but I figured by using the "airport overview" category I could possibly get around that issue. Is the boarding gate the motive problem with this shot or is it the fence at the bottom (or something else)?
