I just got the rejection email 11 days after upload time. The shot I'm about to show you I think it has been my best one so far and got insanely rejected. Of course, this is a beginner's opinion, but my eyes don't lie. I'd like to hear you experts on this so I can learn a bit more

Neat shot the first one. Only part I will agree on is the overexposure part. It's obvious what you were going for with the contrail shooting out of the nose. hence, the odd centering. Anyway...the second shot. Yes, overexposed and unlevel.

No. 1 looks overexposed. The white upper fuselage is burnt out. The rear fuselage does look blurry to me I'm afraid. I disagree with the centering rejection as I think you had the motive for it, but it's academic given the other problems.
No. 2 is also overexposed.

Don't be angry! I think both shots were rejected properly.
The first one is overexposed. Please take a look at the upper fuselage. The white paint is totally blown out. And some jaggies could be identified on this image which indicates maybe you were trying to give a little bit more sharpening to a slightly blurry photo.

shot 1 : the whole fuselage is bright white. Too bright...It is also slightly out of focus, not that much, but doesn't meet A.net standards in this sense (that truly are very stricts). The latter rejection reason is the most fixable one.
shot 2 : the image is too bright. I must close my eyes because it has a whitish/bright appearance. Too much contrast in my opinion.
Well, if seems that your main problem is exposure. I noticed that they are both (at least to my terrible art-eye) creative and look good, though, so don't give up. I'd love to see shots like the first one in the database often. Just work on the exposure a bit and you'll probably have it.

Hehe, well thanks you guys. I am a beginner indeed and am always looking to learn a bit more on this complex photogtaphy world. I became blind because I liked my first shot so bad and that lead for me not to see the over exposed part.
Anyhow, I will certainly keep trying. This is my/our hobby and for sure it's amazing.
Thanks for the help you guys.

Great shots by the way, but not great enough for the standards of this board...
Coming from a guy myself who is used to getting photos rejected, and yet to get one accepted I am used to these types of rejections...
Though the first shot is neat - unfortunately your motive was to get that vapor trail with the A320. The aircraft with the vapor trail is blurred - unfortunately you cannot fix that.
The white areas of the United jet is very overexposed - happens to me a lot too. Can happen with white planes. Might be fixable though in photoshop.
The Southwest photo is fixable - make some color adjustments to make the Southwest colors look more natural, seems the blue is too bright. There is slight overexposure, but not as much as the United. I think if you work on the Southwest jet a bit you could make it, but unfortunately the United shot is too far gone.
It's starting to 'pop', but the pylon for the nacelle is still to bright and the white from 'under' the slats is a touch hot too. There are a lot of jaggies, while not dramatic, they are noticable. I hope you get help with this one 'cause it's a really decent motive as far as I am concerned.
