Quoting Draigonair (Reply 1): Nice photo. It does seem a bit dark...as in you need to lighten it up a bit with an editng program as it seems its a bit underexposed! Just brighten her up and she will be good to go!
The photo was captured in raw and that is what the scene looked like at the time - which is the reason it was uploaded in the 'dark' category. If I brighten the aircraft then I would be manipulating the photo to look like something that it was not.
I thought this is what the dark/dusk/dawn category was for? Why would I make a dark aircraft that looked dark at the time (because the sun had not come up yet) brighter? Kinda defeats the purpose, doesn't it?

Yes it does look too dark, the aircraft sorta blends in with the surroundings. The argument 'but that's what it looked' like is not valid for a.net, for the same reason we probably don't accept nightshots in cases where there is no floodlight on the aircraft.
