    Question backlit rejection?

    Hi everyone
    I got a rejection for backlit and too little contrast. For the contrast thing I get it but not for the backlit. Because I took that photo on a foggy and overcast day. could anyone help? Thank you. https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=6066020

    Hi Jason, just coming from my opinion. The aircraft is in clear shadow. Not much light on it. I would personally keep photos on a cloudy day for personal use. I love the photos but on cloudy days, if you can maybe also get a bit more of a side on shot. I do stand for correction from screeners and other photographers here but I would keep that for personal use. I hope you have a great day ahead, Regards Matthew.

    Backlit applies when the background is significantly brighter than the foreground/subject (as it is with your photo), even if the sun is technically behind you.

    Look at the luminosity histogram. There are flat lines at both ends showing the missing dark and light tones, especially the dark tones. This is the result of adjusting the graph only....Your image first Click image for larger version.

    It's still not perfect but it does illustrate how important a correctly adjusted histogram is.
