You are absolutely right. Decreativize means just that the shot was moved from the creative queue to the regular queue. No more, no less.
As for what is creative, I would say it's a very grey area, and the description given on the upload page is not really clear nor up to date. Both of your shots are technically (very) difficult, no doubt about that, but I am not sure whether they can be categorized as creative. There have been long discussions in this forum (or in the Aviation Photography forum maybe) about this topic, if you are interested they are worth a read.
All the best,

That was my doing. The previous posters have explained/confirmed your thoughts already, but I wanted to respond anyway. While it's very true that these kind of images require out-of-the-box thinking and a different set of skills, patience and luck, there is 'nothing' creative about the process if you break it down. They're the same kind of photos you can take, but at night. For creative photos, the composition plays a much bigger role in my opinion. The info tab on the upload form has been in need of an update for a while now, but we/I still haven't gotten around to it. Hopefully it can be done soon.
For what it's worth, that type of photo is a #1 bucketlist item for me in terms of aviation photography and you nailed it. Very jealous! I hope it gets added, it really deserves to be seen!
