    With some sharpening and dust spot removal, should be ok.

    Can I ask you more broadly about dust spots? I do dust removal detection and removal in Lightroom and it's a good function, but the 'check for dust' function for queued photos in JP seems to pick up spots that Lightroom doesn't. It may be because the spots it's finding are more transparent and have no border (oil spots maybe). Of course JP's 'check for dust' function is only useable for photos once they are in the screening queue, and I've put all my queued photos through this today, found some had previously undetected spots and taken them out of the queue. Are there any other methods you know of for dust spot detection, short of uploading a photo to the screening queue and checking it there?

    And... my camera's having a sensor clean today!
    Equalize function in PS, or just old fashion grab-and-drag (just click on the image and drag it in circles around your screen. Makes any dust spots stick out a lot more).

    First borderline for contrast, second certainly a contrast rejection. Will not comment on these any more.

    Can I get some advice on these 'dusk' shots taken at high ISO? would either of the two shots below qualify on quality grounds, or would the added noise of high ISO make them immediate rejections?

    Is there an overall policy regarding high ISO images on JP?

    I deliberately kept the post-processing - particularly sharpening and NR - to the least I could.

    Noise is not an issue on either, but both are too dark, especially the second.

    Remove the dust spots, brighten it a bit, and place it slightly higher in the frame.

I had another attempt today, later in the afternoon with the sun at a lower angle. I intend to submit one image only, would any of these meet the requirements?

    We generally don't pre-screen similar images, so please pick the one you'd like to go with for more specific feedback.
