Rejected For Motive - Why?

Sat Dec 16, 2006 9:56 am

Well, I knew this would be a borderline case, but still would very much appreciate if a screener could tell me exactly why this one was rejected for motive? Maybe then one day I will learn which engine close ups to upload  Cool ...

It's because your eye gets drawn to the guy picking up FOD. Anyone could tell you that.

That's a pretty cool picture Andres. I think it'd probably make it in if we could see inside the engines.

Hi Jeff and Ivan,

I knew this would be a close one, but I thought to myself: Does this picture have the same value without the guy? I made it clear in the comment that the picture was about the engines and NOT the guy!
So, could any screener please comment on this?

A picture can usually speak for itself, Andres.

I personally think there's little of interest in that picture, sorry.

I think your screener comment came in the form of a rejection. The motive rejection is obvious, comment or not.

Andres

I agree the picture is quite plain, regarding motive, but I like the shot. I would have cropped out the 'dead' space behind the engine exhausts (to the right of the frame).

Cheers!  Smile
