Post screening

Fri Sep 06, 2019 12:14 pm

Dear all,

I would like to get some advise, related to a recent rejection. ID: 5645669



The shot was first rejected for underexposed. I asked for a second opinion via the appeal-function. In appeal, the screener agreed that exposure was OK, but It was rejected for "motiv" (reason via personal message: rejected because part of the engine was cut-off).

Although the rejection message stated that I could appeal to the head-screeners, I see no way to appeal since it was already rejected after a first appeal (maybe the rejection e-mail can be adjusted?).

I accept the rejection and the screeners' decision, but I would still like to know whether this type of shot is no longer acceptable? I have several of these (just a close-up of the vertical tail, and only part of the exhaust(s) visible) accepted in the past, but I know that rules can change:



Thanks for any advise!

Best regards,

Walter

Hello Walter,

Typically, we reject for motive when a major part of the aircraft (e.g. engine, landing gear, wing, tail,stabilizer, etc) is either obstructed or prematurely cropped. In you case, there does seem to be some inconsistency in the criteria based on your prior accepted images. I will say that the cropped engine looks more prominent in your rejected image when compared to the already accepted ones. Perhaps if there was more tail and less fuselage/engine it may have been deemed acceptable. I also am not a fan of the cropped horizontal stabilizer.

BTW, the appeal process allows only one opportunity. If it is appealed and a headscreener or a team of headsceeners review and make a decision, it is not subject to change. Since your image has already been through the appeal process, I would redo the crop and resubmit it.

Cheers,

Thanks for your feedback, Jehan! Much appreciated!
I might go for the full aircraft view then, since this was almost shot like this (but I will check)!
Best regards,

Looks passable in terms of motive (sorry that doesn't help much anymore). Did you mention the examples in the appeal?
