    Darkening only the sky would be considered overprocessing/manipulation, so best not to do that.

    Kind of a contradictory statement, or at least we might have different ideas of what constitutes 'well lit' In any case, that is the problem: lack of direct sunlight has lead to a lack of contrast on the subject (aircraft) itself. You can try increasing the contrast, but again, with the lack of direct light, it will be a tricky balance at best.

      Sun was behind cloud but it wasn't dark. The sky still gave lots of light

        Again, that would considered poor light for aviation photography (at least for me), as it tends to flatten everything out - and thus result in the dull contrast you see in your images.

          Well for me there is no dull contrast by the definition of the word. The aircraft are clearly distinguished from the surroundings. And I had another photo accepted with exactly the same conditions in the same place just different aircraft.

            IMO the 737 is borderline and is really close from being acceptable. I would maybe try to add some contrast via levels on the 777 but not sure you can improve it much

            Hope it helps a bit
