    There's no way this is accepted, right? I tried 2 different edits and they were both rejected for contrast. This is my last attempt, and wanted to check before uploading. Weather was awful, but played with the setting a bit in LR and PS to try and salvage it.

    Thanks!
    Yes, due to the very poor contrast, very unlikely this would be accepted.

    3. heat hazed, borderline backlit

    What would be the difference between that and a photo like this one, for example? The angle?
    Yes, and we generally give more leeway to shots taken from the air since they are much less common/harder to get.

    Obstruction rejection, so doesn't really matter.

    What about this one? I think it's fine, however the plane does not have a registration on it right now (although it's going to be B-17810 when it does). If/When I upload it, how would I go about it? And is it acceptable?

    I've also added a 4th - that I know might be backlit, but I've also seen silhouette photos before so not too sure about it.


    Thanks,
    Luis.
    1-3. slightly better crop on 3, but otherwise same as above
    4. soft, borderline dark/contrast

    2. also soft/vignetting, and not a great crop. either crop closer or leave the whole wing in.
    3. shot through a fence? banding/dark lines in the sky. if that's the case, not fixable.

    I would like some pre-screening for this photo, please. Cropping of helicopters is still ~kinda~ new to me.
    Thanks.

    Hi guys!

    Me again with a question about a rejection - recently got this one https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=9009060 and the reason was "Backlit". I might see why they selected that but if you look closely you can see the yellow part of the aircraft, where the registration is is well lit - that wouldn't be the case if it was backlit, I think. I might be wrong though. Just wanted another set of eyes to look at it.

    Thanks though.
    Shouldn't use the fuselage to judge, since it's not a perpendicular surface. The tail, however, is, and is in shadow in this image so is considered backlit.

    No, obstructed and heat hazed.
