I used the last sunbeams of the day, for this Citation 525 shot. I love the light in the photo, but, I am not sure, if it is OK for the DB. Is it to dark?

Big version: Width: 1280 Height: 854 File size: 766kb

Thanks for your help!

Best Regards!

I like it but it doesn't look level.

Hello Gert.

A very nice photo. I agree with EK20 that it looks to be in need of something like half a degree or so of CCW rotation, judging by the tarmac level and also the crop line in the distance.

Do you have the complete tail in the reflection on the original? If so I think that would enhance the motive here, and enable you to legitimately place the aircraft higher in the frame.

For me the key issue - other than the level - is the colour. I know what you say about the last rays of sunlight, but I would expect this to create a 'warmer' look to the image. As it is the predominant colour cast is more green. That may be an issue.

All the best.

is the colour

Agree, too.

And the contrast is slightly harsh.

You can pretty much put money on it being an issue. With a levels adjustment, it would still look really effective and still should stand a good chance.

On another note, my monitor is show a fair amount of grain in the sky on that edit. When you re-edit, I'd remove some of that too, to avoid another rejection reason.

Good luck with it.
