    No, it will be at the screener's discretion.

    • I have this rejection for dark/underexposed. https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=10191593

      It is a black plane on a dark blue sky - the histogram is never going to look very balanced. Any brighter and I feel the photo would be washed out and overly lightened.

        Pretty easy to brighten it some without washing out the sky/aircraft:

              Maybe a touch dark for the first two, and 4 a bit soft/flat; otherwise all ok for me.

              • Please review the B-24 again, not sure about halos. Adding 4 additional ones please

                  1. borderline oversharpened
                  2. soft, too far
                  3. soft/blurry, backlit
                  4. borderline soft/(weak) contrast
                  5. borderline dark

                    2. soft, too far - so a tighter crop?
                    3. soft/blurry, backlit - is this salvageable at all? smaller, better sharpening, etc?
                    4. borderline soft/(weak) contrast - is this too much contrast? i honestly can't tell
                    5. borderline dark - I bumped this one up a bit, but i'll try to bump it up again a bit.

                      2. correct
                      3. not fixable
                      4. 'weak' contrast means the contrast is not strong enough

                      • So this one got rejected for "Too much or too little contrast" which I assume is too little contrast... I think the contrast is reasonable and I would say the histogram agrees with me. Worth appealing?

                          I suppose, but as mentioned above it doesn't look that bad to me. Your call as to whether you want to appeal or not.

                            • Had this rejected for horizon and sharpness. https://www.jetphotos.com/viewreject_b.php?id=10228414

                              I've uploaded a version with vertical guidelines showing that it is level when using vertical poles and sides of the building in the background. As to sharpness, well I think its appropriately sharpened, usually a pretty subjective metric.

                              Should I appeal?

                              • Another rejection here, this one I really don't understand. https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=10228958

                                Rejected for
                                • Bad Composition (bad framing / aircraft not centered)
                                • Subject too far / too much dead space

                                However, you can clearly see that it is centered perfectly, and the borders of the photo are about as close as they can get to the tube on the nose of the aircraft and the tail. Is it possible the screener didn't look closely to see that spike/test tube thing on the front of the plane? There is literally no way I could have a closer crop with less dead space.
