I have a higher resolution version I can work with if necessary but I guess my problems are a little more critical. I can't even get anything beyond 'our standards are very high' in the rejection message.

Dont get confused...Here's a simple resolution...Upload in lower image resolution for easy acceptance...Most people here upload at 1000px or 1024px wide. I'm sure your photo will be accepted after the size reduction from 1600px wide to 1000px wide...
The comment was "color" and "grainy". Can anybody give me some hints to improve this? The weather on that day was sunny, but there was a kind of haze through the valley. It was shot from a nearby mountain, so no glass (except for the tele) in between...

Quoting Pepef (Reply 8): Read through this. It offers excellent advice on several sharpening techniques. If you haven't got the time, at least read parts II and III. It offers the best advice on sharpening I've seen so far.
This is great advise, thanks for pointing this out! I have bookmarked this site and I will read (and study) all these topics. That will certainly help for improving my outputs!
The quality is indeed not very good (and I accept the screener comments), but I thought to give it a try since the aircraft - in this remarkable color scheme - was about to be retired (so, no other opportunities to make better pictures )
The Fly-out ceremony (at Hopsten AFB, Germany) was really on a bad-weather day and flying activity only started at around sunset... Even if the quality is not good enough for A.net, I would like to improve this picture as much as possible for my own records, so all advise is welcome! It was indeed getting rather dark, but I tried to keep the grain low with a low as possible ISO setting.
