    Please and thanks in advance.

    In this case it's too little. If you take a quick peek at the histogram you can see there's hardly any information in the shadows; there's room to brighten it a little as well, so a bit more overall contrast should work nicely.

    Hope that helps,

        I hope its permitted to place my question in this thread, stops me from opening again a new thread with questions about contrast.

        Without discussing the other rejection reasons ,which way should I go with the contrast part?

          you are welcome, sir!
          I think your work is mostly for Reason:
          - Bad Composition (bad framing / aircraft not centered)
          and

          - Part of aircraft cut off

          if the first two issues are avoided, and some light reflection on the surface, IMO, you are not rejected by the reason
          - Too much or too little contrast

            You don't need to start a new topic, simply go here:

            The contrast in your photo is not bad per se, but borderline. I doubt, it would have been rejected for that alone. The contrast is a bit strong, with just a tad too much shadows and highlights. If you start from scratch, tweak the curves to have less clipped shadows and contrast. If you need assistance, post the original or a resized original somewhere. There are plenty of people willing to offer some help.
