I had this photo rejected as double of the following one, even after an appeal. https://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/9/3/5/5612539.jpg?v=v44f4557194c 2821023 I understand that they are from the same sequence but the motive and the frame is really different.

But since I moved and left the camera behind to my family, I am not like getting the same thing again.
