Re uploads are directed to a separate queue and are reviewed by the Head Screeners. Turnaround time is usually 24-48 hours. The image must be the same except for improvements.

Re: Understanding Limits on Creative Shots

Hi Jeremy,

You can always appeal the decision and cite the other accepted shot. I think you make a fair point since in a night time image such as this, the emphasis is on the city at night more than more than the visible part of the aircraft.

Re: 'Reverse vignetting'

over-corrected vignetting can lead to reverse vignetting. as far as the photographers being driven away, I think that ship has mostly sailed.

If you're planning on just appealing and HIF was the only issue identified, then the contrast is passable. Wouldn't hurt to boost the contrast a bit, but for me it is not a show stopping issue.
