I don't know if it is salvageable but there seems to be some "dead space" on the right side of the histogram. You can try to adjust the levels so that the histogram is more evenly spread out but I think you will still have issues with the contrast between the white aircraft and the white overcast background with no good light on the aircraft. The best advice is avoid shooting on overcast days.

    Also, there seems to be an update to the upload guidelines: "Please note that photos taken in bad weather conditions are likely to be rejected for contrast reasons, unless the weather aspect adds something to the photo. Just like on this photo where the bad weather isn't adding anything to the photo"

    So maybe this photo should be for your personal collection...
    Yep, thumbs up! Great reply.

    Too much or too little contrast

    Hello all, I recently got another photo like this one rejected for "too much or too little contrast". I then reduced contrast and tried again but still got rejected for the same reason. What do you guys think?
