Post-Screening: Motive for sun glare

Tue Jul 11, 2017 1:31 pm

I had this shot rejected for motive because of the sun glare off the overwing exit window.

I never considered it bad enough to not upload and was slightly surprised it was rejected for it. Any thoughts, is it worth an appeal? Thanks.

Edited to add screener's comment: "Glare too distracting at middle window"

Hey Steve,

It does sometimes happen that photos with bad glare get hit for motive. To be completely honest, in the above photo the glare does ruin it for me. Although you never know, I wouldn't advise an appeal, sorry. Do you have another photo without the glare by any chance?

Nothing significantly different, one with the glare around the titles. I could only move a little in either direction without the plane becoming obstructed.

What does the glare around the titles look like?

Pretty much the same, but with the glare in the middle of the titles rather than the over-wing exits.

Here it is, unedited:

For what it's worth I prefer the second one.
The glare on the overwing exits is quite hard on the eyes.

I don't think either will sneak in though.

The glare on the middle of the titles is not nearly as bad. It might be able to stand a chance.
