Hi all, I recently had this photo rejected for "motive," because the fence was too distracting, and a tighter crop was recommended.
While I disagree, I can see how it could be perceived as such. However, the re-cropping recommendation got me wondering; would something with an aspect ratio other than 3:2 or 4:3 be acceptable, i.e. 16:9 (which I think would be a better crop for this photo, anyway)? The rejection guidelines are very clear about the fact that 3:2 and 4:3 are acceptable, but I find them a bit confusing with regard to other aspect ratios. To add to the confusion, I'm pretty sure I've seen 16:9 images here before, but of course, I'm unable to find any of them to illustrate my point, at the moment.
So, to make my question simple, would a 16:9 cropped image be acceptable, and if so, would doing so make the above image acceptable?
Thanks for any input
