    Oh I've shot at other times but some airplanes only come at certain times, and most of the ones that do come later are the ones not in the database or the more interesting ones of course!

    5 Rejection reasons explained - Exposure

    5.1 Backlit

    As a general rule: Don't take pictures with the sun in your eyes, shooting against the sun puts the visible half of the aircraft in shadow which means we can't see it to its advantage. Backlit shots they will be rejected. As a rule of thumb: if the tail casts a shadow on the fuselage, the photo is most likely to be rejected for backlit.

    An exception to this is when the photographer is creating a sunset/sunrise type at which time the vivid colors and weak sunlight produce very pleasing results-properly executed dusk and dawn shots are always welcome but please don't flood us with such images because they are very difficult to get right.

    OK,
    So why is backlit treated as something bad when the plane shown fully detailed?

    Is there any editing that can make this image acceptable?
    Unfortunately Backlit isnīt fixable. Try to take pictures with the sun in your back.

    Best Regards and always happy spottings!
