A long-standing pet peeve of mine has been getting the killer rejection after correcting for a fixable rejection. That said, I have learned when submitting an image that may be subject to a killer subjective rejection, I double-check all technical elements before submitting. A rejection will come based on the first thing that the screener sees or the most convenient rejection reason on the menu. If you eliminate all other criteria for rejection from the photo, it may get a PAQ, or it may strike a chord with the screener and be accepted. If you go in with the attitude that it will probably get a PAQ, it is a nice surprise when it gets accepted, and you have not set yourself up for aggravation when it gets the PAQ.

FWIW, I would have expected a PAQ for this image.
