Yes, it’s nice to know what they think about us.....behind our backs. I think every rejection/acceptance should have the screener name visible. If the screener is confidant in their own ability this shouldn’t be a problem.

Re: Rejection changed from "underexposed" to "poor sun angle"

Why is that a rant? It’s an observation about an issue that was raised in this thread. If you keep rejecting images based on personal preferences that have otherwise been acceptable on this site then you are indeed effecting change in the upload criteria not necessarily for the better.

Some of the screeners have certainly changed the standards of what was once accepted based on their own personal likes.

The reason I mentioned the number of shots was because the screener alluded to the rarity of the Mig being the reason it was accepted and mine was not. There are 770 Romanian Airforce Mig 21 shots in the DB and only 440 Vietnam Airlines A350 shots. Julien, it would be naive to think that a handful o...

Karl, if that was a hangar at the local aero club I’d agree with you but the structures at the Boeing plant are anything but flimsy. It’s definitely not level but is an easy fix.
