Cars in front of Wall painting

I have this really beautiful wall painting I’d like to submit but there is always at least two cars parked in front of it covering the lower parts. Will this be turned down during review? (I will be able to take a photo without the registration plates showing)
It may be rejected for low quality photo if you can’t fully see the mural.
Is it possible to focus on some part of the mural instead of getting the whole thing? Depending on the mural subject, this may even result in a better photo. If it's not better, after the wayspot is accepted you can always keep a look out for the one day or time a year that no cars are there, then submit a photo edit.
I submitted this mural months ago and am worried it will get denied. Every time I visited for months there was the same car in front. The car is even on existing Street View.
Personally, I consider this acceptable, but we'll see if reviewers agree. I wasn't comfortable cropping it any more than this at the time I submitted. I did address the car in my Supporting - if reviewers even make it that far.
I wonder if in your situation, clever cropping can help hide the car(s). If you want, share the photo and we can help with an assessment, but remember that it'll always be a little subjective for reviewers and we may not be the ones voting.
You could have stated also "some days" in order to align with Niantic point of view regarding deliverables. 483 days is a number after all 😂
This is just a part of the mural but maybe I can try to take a picture focusing on the head of the squirrel because the normal cars in the lower right corner tend to move more than the big one.
That's very beautiful.
Personally, I wouldn't have a problem with the vehicles but we know reviewers can be picky. Cropping it can certainly help. Any chance you can at least get a picture without a van?
I played around a little with a 3:4 and 1:1 aspect ratio and had a few versions I liked that include minimal cars. I wouldn't go as far as 9:16 for this.
Best of luck!
Yeah. That's annoying the cars are always there, because it looks like a fantastic mural. Maybe if you did a picture that feaned basically just the head? With short cars, you would probably be able to avoid them.
I personally wouldn't reject it for the cars as-is, but reviewers can get really picky about the photos for some reason.
If things go through quickly in your area, or if you've got some upgrades banked, I'd probably try once with the cars then try a just head version if that got a photo rejection.
What is that anyway? Why is there a huge squirrel mural there? :-)
The city I live in hired street artists from around the world to make a few building more appealing. This is just one of them :)
