I submitted this photo and was rejected for two reasons:
1.) the background alignment was not fully corrected (I was off by maybe 0.8 degree).
2.) quality of photo not up to standard.
I went ahead and corrected issue number 1. For number 2, I wasn't quite sure what to do post-image processing wise...the photo was shot in RAW on Panasonic Lumix FZ50, initial post processing done on SilkyPIX and then Adobe Photoshop. I tried by adding small amounts of noise reduction, did smart sharpening, and slightly higher contrast and different white balance value. But I'm still not sure if this is enough. I would like to ultimately resubmit this photo... Please any suggestion will be awesome, since if this picture makes the cut it'll be my first Airliners.net photo ever (myaviation.net not counting).
Thanks in advance!
Taken on a somewhat cloudy day in Taipei's Song Shan Airport (TSA) on 6 Jan 2007.

I saw a lot of "quality rejection" postings and someone posted somewhere that pretty much any non-sunny shots are almost guaranteed for rejection. So the image above probably can't be improved anyway. Thanks for the help and I'll just have to wait for a sunny day.
