Default 5:4 no longer acceptable?

Not appealing or changing my shot, just a heads up for anyone who's partial to that composition. My shot is 1200x960.

Nice shot. I see absolutely no reason for rejection on that one....

It's no secret that RP is not fond of squarish photos, although some do get accepted.

Maybe RP is still burned out on 611. I think its worthy the way it is but that's just my opinion. Thanks for trying to post it. Doesn't look like 611 will be pulling anything this year so maybe try later in the year....?

Comment rejected - estimate is not precise enough!

I think it looks fine - strange rejection IMO.

I'd be curious as to what happened. The original link to the rejection doesn't work, so I'm assuming you appealed and got the original submission in?

Anyway, nice shot. Wish it were mine. I think I told you my tale of woe about my aborted trip to VA last summer. JetBlue left me high and dry. The only 611 pictures I have were from Jim Wrinn's museum shoot a couple of years back. Those were OK, but it's like photographing tigers in a zoo.....just not the same as catching them out and about.

I didn't appeal lol. I guess the powers that be took it upon themselves to do it. I received an email yesterday saying my appeal was processed and accepted and went WTF mate? I am pleased that 4:5 still lives on though so thank you Chris.

I think my last appeal was in 2010 (Wonder if there's a record of it on the server side archive?)

As for getting your shot at 611.. You may have another opportunity later.
