I'd say rejected QUALITY, BLURRY, SOFT, DISTANCE. The photo has quality issues which you won't be able to fix unfortunately as it's a nice lookin spot you've got! You've got to remember that 9 out of 10 times the aircraft needs to be the center of attention. In your case there's too much sky above acting as dead space. I would crop closer to the aircraft and fill the frame with as much airplane as you can, and then fit in the cityline in the background.

What kind of gear are you using?

Yes, it lacks quality (detail) and would need to be cropped tighter for a.net.
It would also need slight counter-clockwise rotation, making the central skyscrapers vertical.

But on the positive side it's a nice image and when cropped tighter around the aircraft and skyscrapers, the composition might even be acceptable for a.net, even though the aircraft would normally need to be higher in the frame.

Welcome to the forum.
Agree with all Prat said including the comment on the location.
Now for some advice, may be of value, may not!

Size, crop/resize to 1024 or 1200 at least while gaining experience.. tends to make achieving appropriate quality easier.
Crop, I have taken the liberty of using your photo to illustrate what might be a better composition. Having said that it is in my opinion better pictorially and no guarantee of an Anet suitable result.

My advice, if your only aim is to take photos suitable for Anet, study images already in the DB. (and lots of them)
If you wish to persue photography for personal pleasure (a better approach IMHO) then take some time to learn about composition etc.

Keep at it, if the photo you posted was one of your early ones, the potential is certainly there.



If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Too much space in the sky and the skyscrapers look like they are leaning to the right alittle bit. Good thing it is not taken in Pisa, Italy  scratchchin
