    Rejected photo - Contrast

    Hi

    I have this photo rejected because of 'Too much or too little contrast'

    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=6759752

    The shot was taken in sunlight and to me the contrast looks OK. How can i tell if the contrast is OK or not using lightroom?

    TIA

    Andrew

    I class myself as a beginer to JP. I only use lightroom and any guidence would be appreciated.

    I recently had this photo rejected for 'too much or too little contrast, horizon unlevel and categories wrong or missing

    The contrast appeared to be Ok as i can distinguish all the tones from A to Z.
    The contrast bar below the rejected image is for your own screen calibration, and has nothing to do with the individual image. The light is quite flat and overall poor in this image, due to it being slightly overcast.

    If the horizon itself is not visible, you should always use vertical references first, in this case the building.

    Military is Genre not Category. This is a cargo aircraft. You did not mark it as such.

    Dear Andrew,

    next time it would be better to provide the fuul link to the rejected picture. Anyway, this is your rejected picture.

    In terms of contrast, it is too much IMO, as it is a gray on a gray/whitish background.
    If you look a the verticlas in the picture (building edges) it leans to the right, so it needs CCW rotation.

    As per the categories, since I was not the screener involved, my only guess is tha you have missed the "cargo" category.

    My best regards
