    That's great news and thanks for the info. As always, its greatly appreciated that you take the time to look into things and share the info.

    Regarding the crop, what would you suggest?
    Personally, I'm not a fan of cutting any of the wing unless you're going to crop really tight to the body, but I've seen worse crops than this. Objectively, there is no cut here/don't cut here line exactly, but it was rejected by two screeners who both agreed, so I guess your best bet would to just include the whole wing.

    Thanks and I have no issues with the main reason for the rejection. It is clear and in fact, it would be great to hear which better crop to use.

    My question was around incorrect boxes ticked and being able to see what it was once it was rejected. In this instance, I asked for help here because I'm still unsure what I should have ticked.

    Its not about being worked up, its about trying to do it properly in the first place and the photographer helping where he/she can.

If the missing category (in this case Night Shot) has been the only issue, it would have been added for you. No need to get worked up over not understanding a category rejection; either ask here for help, or just do your best when uploading and we will fix it for you if there no other issues.

    I had this rejection

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8100500

    but since there is no way to know what the 'category wrong or missing' is and the screener did not include it in the rejection, I have no idea which tick box was incorrect. Any chance of shedding light on this one please.

    Feedback for screener: If you reject for something as trivial as this, provide info on which category is missing since we can't see the categories once the photo is rejected. Otherwise, all you're going to get is another likely rejection and wasted time -not what you need when you're screening 15,000+ photos.

    Cheers

    I tried to add a new reg to the DB but twice its gone to the back of the queue. I added a comment in the Hot Photo both times. Seems odd as normally that works, so, wondering if there is something else I need to do.

    Thanks
    Any comments in the Hot Photo section should automatically send it to the front of the queue. What is the reg.?

    Thanks. Just wondered as there are plenty of moon shots or interesting weather with small aircraft silhouettes.

    Cheers
