You Vote, Should I Appeal This Night Shot?

Sun Oct 29, 2006 1:49 am

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...ename=20061028_IMG_4222nightF9.jpg

Rejected for motiv. I thought the motiv was pretty good, very good in fact. I don't think I would change anything if I rephotoshopped it. I like the colors and it's not like it's a grainy shot or too dark, or even blurry.

I really thought this would be a lock to make it and be a very popular shot like the one I did last year.

So do you guys want to see this in the database? Should I appeal?

I am not aware of this site's opinion on those shots or what the motiv issue is but that is one awesome shot!

I would like to see it in the DB.

Very regrettable indeed, and I question the sense behind that... I would have thought that high hitting photos are good for a.net because they generate more traffic, and thus more inome from advertising?

assuming that this commercial website makes a profit, that should be covered by the revenue?

Yeah, it's too bad. I have to hope though that if someone else took a shot that was exemplary as that one, it would get in.

My attention is drawn far too much to the foreground in order to be an "aviation-shot". But, I must say I really like picture! Top-notch. The kind I'd luuv to print and put on a wall at home.

Should you appeal it? No, I must say. (As much as I hate saying it.)
In thrust I trust.

Ok so after re-reading the other thread I am a bit confused now. Apparently there has not been a "rule change" but now these photos that do not show an airplane, only light streaks, are now a no-go? Do I just need to get closer and have more streaks filling the frame or something?

I am a bit upset by this as I figured it would be a "direct add" type of shot.

I will go ahead and say that I love these long exposure shots and think they should continue to be accepted. Hopefully others will voice that opinion too and "the powers that be" will change their mind. Until then I will just leave it as is and I don't think I will appeal it.

If it's any consolation... in 1280x1024 it would have been a direct add to my wallpaper/screensaver webshots archive.

I agree with Tim and Viv. Do not appeal it. The image shows little scene of airport or runway that is the reason why motiv rejection is given.

Of course, it is a nice shot!
