Hi Damien,
for me it doesn't work, you just have too much of boring, grey sky, the fuselage isn't centered and the small parachute is out of focus. Sorry.

Capturing a winch launch is exceedingly difficult, especially trying to convey the steep angle of climb. This is a good effort, but you also have to think of how a non-glider pilot would view the image. Really, I'm not sure what the screeners would say for motive for this image, but it does have some technical flaws that might make motive moot.

Keep shooting and don't give up.
