    The aircraft is very dark with a bright background. It is backlit with very harsh contrast. It is unlikely further editing will remedy the situation.

      Default And again contrast
      This one was rejected: Underexposed and Too much ot too little contrast. Is it too much??? Or too litttle???

      My question is: What is exactly wrong, because I don't see it. And what can I do to repair it.

        The image is dark and lacks contrast. There are no strong whites or blacks. How to fix it: ideally, shoot in better weather conditions. Realistically, you can try brightening the image and adding more contrast, but due to the poor light conditions when you shot it, not sure that will help too much.

        You are experienced enough as an uploader here to know that images taken in such poor light have a much lower chance of being accepted, so perhaps it would be best in the future to avoid such frustration by tempering your expectations when submitting such shots.

          Thanks for your reply. Yes I know it were difficult circumstances, but I travelled to the UK from the Netherlands and then and then you would like them to be accepted. So I gave it a try.

            No, I understand completely having travelled somewhere to shoot photos, only to have the weather not cooperate. It happened to me only a few weeks ago, and my trip was a bit further than the distance between the Netherlands - UK

            In such a case, I've simply uploaded the ones I know would still meet the standards, but won't bother with the others. While I'm not saying you must not upload your images, perhaps be selective, and then not get frustrated if those borderline images are rejected. There will (hopefully) always be another trip, with a chance for sunnier days.

                        My opinion is the same as whoever screened the image originally, and whoever handled the appeal. The aircraft is dark against a bright, washed out sky leading to very poor contrast. You can try lifting the darker tones, but due to the aforementioned poor light, not sure how successful you will be.

                            What is exactly wrong with the contrast. I have more then 5500 accepted photos and suddenly rejections mainly for contrast. What is wrong with it

                              Hey Paul, I'm not a JP Screener but I saw the Histogram from your rejected photo and there is space for a bit more constrast (see the left side). Maybe you can try adjust the levels and use curves to improve the photo (and also remove some of the overexposed area in the left).

                              I know this points will not show in your rejection but maybe some CCW will be good for you photo. Perhaps, a good one! Nice building and colors.

                              PS: I really understand you, in October I traveled from Brazil to Faro (Portugal) to take some shots and the weather not help me! But I give a try and send my photos soon
