Unfortunately this was a long time ago so the photo is not visible anymore in my rejected queues. The photo got accepted on the planepictures website though. You can view my photo there by searching for CUR as location.
I just took a look and see a couple pictures of USS Kearsage. From my experience around here, I'd guess they have motive issues with the helicopters being partially obstructed and the scenes being cluttered looking. The lighting is also less than ideal (slightly backlit), and there appears to be some chromatic aberrations just barely visible.
I like the idea of accepting shots of carriers in the same way as shots of airports are accepted. It would perhaps be fair to limit it to shots that accentuate their purpose as airbases rather than ships, so the one shot of the whole ship would be questionable in my mind despite the helicopters being mostly visible because it's a low angle shot with the flight deck not visible.
I wonder if a screener would perhaps weigh in with any thoughts?
By the way:
