How you could miss this blatant manipulation is simply beyond me.

Eric,

Maybe an email to the screeners would be more efficient. All you seem to have done is promoed this pic to Top of the Day. confused  crazy 

Some strange shit going on.

Screeners dont equalize every shot .
Without doing that how could they pick it up.?
The screeners are not to blame here if there is an issue .

You're telling me that that perfectly square black box covering each of the displays inside the equalized photo is a flash reflection? How stupid do you think I am?

I did just fine.

Your photos had obvious issues and were rejected correctly, can't see why you take it personal, but stop riding a dead horse.

Seems like you should really take time off this site again if you're taking it all that serious.

All I'm suggesting is that a quiet email to the screeners would likely have got the pic removed with few people seeing it. Having it "advertised" here has simply made it top of the day. I'm certainly not disputing that there's clearly something "wrong" with the shot, hence:

I agree, the title of your thread says it all. You are getting very bitter.

If you find a picture with issues why not email them privately? Why create more of the same "my pics are being rejected and they missed this one" crap? it is so old!
Hey that guy with the private jet can bail us out! Why? HE CAN AFFORD IT!

Say what? confused 

The screen "images" look to have been somewhat poorly pasted on. Not to mention the overall contrast of the image is pretty poor.

it's definately a pixelated image that's been pasted over the screens, look at the EICAS and you can see a thick black strip running across it and a black square kind of shape in the lower right. why on earth would he do that?

You're kidding right? It's so obvious, even from the "medium" size view of the picture

I didn't open the image to scrutinise it but i did after this comment and i can see an issue but if it may be caused by something other then a manipulation we will wait and see.

Though I disagree with Eric's way of handling this, it doesn't take an expert to see that. It is obvious.

Havn't heard much from the crew on this one... is the photog being contacted/photo being pulled? I'm surprised it's been allowed to remain in the DB this long.

The issue has now been dealt with, so I am locking this thread. I believe the best action to have taken here would have been to contact the Screeners directly by email, rather than posting a thread about it.
