    hey guys! quick question about a recent rejection i just got. I've seen multiple photos on the site where the aircraft is not centered due to creative reasons; sometimes is the sun/moon, or sometimes even another aircraft. This photo got rejected due to "Bad Composition (bad framing / aircraft not centered)", however, I think cropping the Southwest plane would've look awkward and it looks nice having a plane landing and another one taxiing; maybe I'm wrong, but may I know why some photos with the aircraft not centered are accepted and others are not?
    Thanks!
    The WN in the foreground adds nothing to the image to justify the centering. It's backlit, and frankly too distracting.

    i usually agree with rejections, but i'm having a hard time with this one actually - even looking at the full frame photo, i don't really see much where it's soft. would you mind telling me to see if it's fixable, and/or avoid it in the future?


    Thanks!

    Borderline dark/contrast for both.

    Wanted some feedback on these two photos. I tried uploading one but it got rejected so wanted to check before uploading v2.

    Just wanted to pre-check these photos. I think they're borderline backlit but not 100% sure.
    Yes technically backlit, but close enough that it will be at the screener's discretion whether this should cause a rejection.

    Long time! Quick question about this rejection i got a few days ago. it says it was rejected due to "bad color" but i don't see it, honestly. What part of the photo would you say it has a bad color/hue?

    Thanks!
    White balance is too warm.

    mainly regarding the trees in the foreground, i dont know if theyre too distracting.
    Not at all. I think it frames the aircraft well in this case, so would be perfectly acceptable for me.
