I like the motiv, but it is maybe better to re-edit it with a smaller size (e.g. 1200x800pix). It looks a bit over-sharpened in some areas (e.g. the door and the water-protection above it), maybe the original was not that pin-sharp? On a smaller size, these smaller quality items will be less visible or disappear completely.

Viv, why upload at 1600x1070 pixels!? For such a size you'll need a top-notch quality shot for A.net acceptance. Your photo, though ok does not have that quality. So as Walter said, resize it to 1025x... and it will look much better. I still fear for a motive rejection though as the crop is a little awkward (engines not fully included but much empty space at the top).

Quoting Viv (Reply 2): Almost nothing - it's almost full-frame.
Well... It would be handy if you told us what you did to edit it, instead of letting us guess...
But anyway... I see many things that have gone wrong, but they could have been caused by many different editing steps aswell... Looks like a blurry shot that has been oversharpened and blurred with some kind of blurring tool. With JPG-compression to top it up... Not saying that's what happened, but that's what it looks like.
I love that livery !!! Anyway Viv, like Ed said, it looks like the shots turned out blurry since from the beginning and you tried to improve the quality...I don't know if it could be saved...You could always post the original...Some screener will surely help (hopefully) .

The picture looks definitely like it was very slightly blurry originally, which of course is very apparent in such a motive. There is also a very slight chromatic problem, visible on the wheels and the cockpit frame (maybe part of the blurriness). On the underside of the fuselage, it looks like you tried too much grain reduction (look at the hatch below the second guy).
I don't know which lens you used, but maybe it all comes down to it not working anywhere near its sweet spot! Don't know if all this can be corrected without seeing the original, but looking at this edit I can see the quality rejection.
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!
