    Thanks. I just always wonder when I get that rejection reason if it's either too much or too little. Maybe that rejection reason should be split in two.

    Thanks for the input.

    Nice. Just be prepared for the fact that such images are generally harder to get accepted.

    'Interesting' for you, but it's rather subjective, wouldn't you say?

    Any feedback on this? I'd like to know why rain shots which are extremely hard to produce are usually a no-no:

    It would also help if it was explained if its too much OR too little contrast.

    Thanks!

    Thanks!
    Nose area is soft/blurry, and contrast is poor due to overcast conditions.

    Actually you can only work on the plane with lightroom or camra raw tools. With raw camera, which I use, using the adjustment brush. Sometimes I use it to adjust shadows

    Hi there. Unfortunately from my perspective it doesn't look like there is much you can do to get this image to be accepted. My advice is to get other shots with better lighting.

    Copy that, back to the drawing board then. I will upload a new edit once I'm done again. Thanks!

    Thanks so much for your reply, I appreciate it.

    I have been playing around with the RAW and got to this result, the sky may be too dark but I believe there is much better contrast and maybe a little more tweaking and I can get an acceptable shot, let me know what you think about it.

    Well, the biggest problem is the fact that the aircraft is backlit. You can brighten it, but then the sky will be completely blown out. In the same way, if you keep the sky manageable, the aircraft will be much too dark. I've already seen multiple images of this arrival from other photographers rejected due to the poor light, not sure there is anything you can do with editing.

    I am trying to get this accepted but have tried twice and got the following rejection reasons:

    -Dark/underexposed
    -Too much or too little contrast

    I know the histogram is a big player in how photos are screened and I'd like to get some more insight on how this is determined.

    Any advice would be helpful.

    Thanks!

    Im not a screener, but i would say increase the exposure and increase the contrast a bit.

    thats my opinion.
