Default Opinion Please

Recently I've been successful in getting images accepted intothe www.airliners.net database. This image however was declined for having a "halo around the aircraft". I cannot make out any kind of a halo on my 23"monitor. Would appreciate any feedback on it as well as other aspects of the image. BTW, this was taken at Baltimore, Maryland when this aircraft was on final approach to Runway 33L. Interesting paint scheme, I thought.

I have no opinion, just facts.
I see no halos. They are crazy.

Jelpee,

I crop the hell out of the photo, and see no halo. Not sure what they are talking about.

The airlines are looking for new ways to make money. flying billboards

taking another look, maybe they meant the glare in the middle of the aircraft above the wing? I have never submitted an image into that site, so i dont know the inner workings, but maybe they have pre-written responses to images that are rejected, and they may sent you the wrong one by accident because the verbiage is very similar?

hmm.. look at that, i guess i do have opinions.. i never knew.

actually that is not a glare, but part of the paint job for the flying billboard I think.

Thanks all for your responses. I'm releived that it was not my monitor that may have been concealing that degree of detail. I know their acceptance standards are very high, but this one is a puzzle. FYI, I had several more that were rejected (from the same shoot) for the same reason....bizzare!

High standards is putting it mildly. Your shot is excellent. You can see the pilot and the people looking out the windows. Great shot. But you can just suppose they have a million shots like that. Only reason I can think of for refusal. Now if it was on fire or a few tires missing or one undercarriage was dangling there, that would have been much more interesting.
