Default Any comments on this bad motive?

I would appreciate any comments on this rejected photo. I don't think it's a people's choice winner, but I really like how it turned out.

Would a vertical crop of the left side be a better candidate for getting approved?

Thanks in advance.

I had submitted both pictures at the same time, the one that was first in the queue made it, the second one didn't (similar to previous photo). Unfortunately, I liked the second one quite a bit more. I readjusted the HSV on the second one and submitted it again this afternoon, hoping for better results. It was rejected on account of bad motive.

I can see how it's too similar, but, I was hoping the headlight blur would be distinguishing.

Thanks for the input.

Instead of submitting what arguably is the same photo over again. You might consider asking the admin to delete the first photo you submitted, and resubmit the "second" one.

Or you could use the "Reupload Photos" feature and substitute the 1st one with your second choice. Since they are being confused for being similar, I suspect that it would clear the screeners without any problem.

Kilroy is pretty adamant about folks not resubmitting the same photo over and over again. You may quickly find yourself on the boy's shit-list.

Just throwing that out there.

Thanks Sean, I just "reuploaded" it.
