    Thank you, the overprocessed I can understand, you warned me about it during prescreen. However, is there actually a framing and contrast issue? I wasn’t expecting these and would like to know how to fix them. Especially how to frame wing shots.
    Im not screener, but from my point of view (about the wingview) the problem with the contrast comes from the lack of dark tones mainly, and about the framing, for me its a really wide crop, leaving the wing in the bottom of the frame, showing a lot of sky where there is nothing relevant to focus on.

    Hi, want to ask for advice regarding these 2 rejects:

    1.https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=9204352
    I don't think it is underexposed, want to make sure.
    Exposure looks acceptable to me.

    Not sure what to say, I think the screener just doesn't like this picture at all.

    Both slightly better; first ok for me, second contrast still an issue for me.

    I tried the histogram but they all look so different for different pictures.
    I do it first by eye, then check the histogram if I suspect any highlights might be close to being clipped.

    Colours do look better, though other issues remain.

    Some kind of halo effect around the winglet/scimitar, but otherwise quality looks nearly acceptable for 1920pix.

    Hi, back with a couple more shots.

    That would pretty much explain it. Looking at the sun position, anything outside of 11am-3pm will be backlit, as that's when the sun hits the centerline. Something you can plan for in the future.

    Needless to say, I always try to consider the sun location before shooting. Even though the sun seems to be on the same side, I'm not sure why the pic would turn out like that.

    Here is the suncalc screenshot for pic 2. (https://www.suncalc.org/#/25.7863,-8...5.22/15:18/1/1)

    I feel that pic 2 has most of the body lit up (i think >50%), why is it still considered back-lit? Is it due to the tail?
