My area of expertise!
AMS + bad weather (bad lighting) + common plane + common motive = quality rejection
The quality of your 2 shots is ok but due to the mentionned reasons they won't make it to A.net as there are just already too many similar shots with even better quality in the db.
When you shoot in AMS with weather like this you'll have to get a very special motive or plane to get it accepted on A.net these times.

Shouldn't be mentioned on the rejection email 'Common' ?

9V-SVN has a still managable 54 shots in the database and EC-JPL has actually only nine shots in the database. I'm not complaining, but sometimes there seems to be an inbuilt penalty for shooting in AMS - I got some shots of similarly common aircraft accepted from other locations that I believe would never have made it had they been shot at AMS. I can kind of understand that as AMS is obviously over-represented with some 3% of all photos in the database, but this is not being said officially.

The COMMON rejection only kicks in with 80 or so shots in the database. I think it's a little misleading because rarity/commonness is always being taken into account, no matter whether the plane has 0, 10, 30 or 200 shots in the db.
