    This picture was rejected for Dust spots and Digital manipulation. The dust spot is easily enough removed but i am unsure about the digital manipulation.
    I only have Light Room. After the lens correction my process is white balance, exposure, contrast, light tones and sharpening.

    Hi, I noticed that there are something unusal on the horizontal stabilizer. You might want to avoid that next time.

    I have had this picture rejected twice for over exposure. The histogram looks OK (spread over full length) but it needs less exposure?
    Correct. Most of the aircraft is nearly blown out.

    I have had this picture rejected twice for too much too little contrast. Last time I increased the contrast but it still needs more?

    Close to acceptable for me, though yes, the contrast is a bit weak - look at the shadows below the aircraft.

    I had the two following pictures rejected for horizontal unlevel. I used the corners of the buildings to get the vertical as the lamp posts are all over the place. I have checked my source pictures and the building corners are vertical. What am i supposed to reference too?

    ALL verticals (lamp posts and buildings) are leaning right. Both need CCW rotation.

    The aircraft is clearly too high in the frame. There is far more dead space below the aircraft.

    Hi All

    I had this picture rejected for horizon and centering.

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8111088

    The horizon was set to the runway in the top background. I centered the aircraft between the the two wingtips.
    I appealed and was told the aircraft is not centered vertically however the gap between the front of the fusalage and rear fusalage are the same (as per guidelines) I do not know where to go now?

    TIA

    I had this picture rejected due to contrast issues. The screeners comment was that the darker tones are too low, this i can see on the RGB histogram.

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8086442

    The picture may have been taken on a hazy day but i can usually fix that with de-hazing and contrast increase. I have tried tweeking the blues (being the darker tone) in lightroom but am unable to increase the height of the darker tones on the histogram. Increasing the contrast did not appear to have any effect (only widened the histogram). Or is the picture even salvageable?

    TIA

    Contrast is poor. You could try to use shadows tool because its background is ground, not sky

    Hi Dlowwa

    Thanks for your honest response and I apologize as it was not my intention to be so short. I misunderstood what was required and became too focused on the posts. I thought I had rotated counterclockwise but I was wrong and appreciate your time is probably limited to answering these forums.

    Regards
    Andrew

    And you went and appealed again anyway. You rotated it the wrong way. As the first rejection clearly stated, counterclockwise rotation was needed, but you rotated it clockwise, making the horizon even worse. If you'd read the first rejection's comments (and those on the appeal) this could have been avoided, but instead you just decided to try an appeal again. Not going to get much advice from me if you don't bother to read the rejection comments, and then come here after (both) appeals unsurprisingly fail.

    Hi

    Regarding previous post.

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=7972564

    I went on the recommendations of the submission email and appeal (the posts leaning to the right). I rotated the image counter clockwise as suggested. After this last rejection however if i rotate counter clockwise more, the posts will be leaning to the left.

    Regards
    Andrew
