hello everyone. i got this picture rejected for dark, level, size and centre. as i thought they could all be fixed, i decided to have another go at it.
right my questions are:
1) is the editing good enough? i'm using cs2 but i'm not very good at it, and i don't really understand histograms and the like.
2) if not, what should i do to improve? is there a good foolproof way to brighten images?
3) does this picture stand the remotest chance of acceptance? i use a samsung S630, going to upgrade to a dslr after my exams. but in the meantime i thought i'd try to get some shots uploaded with the s630.
thank you in advance for your feedback and advice.

You should correct the centering. The aircraft should be higher in the frame.
The picture quality is not good, I agree. There´s a lot of grain on the pic. I believe it doesn´t stand a chance.
The darkness on the tail doesn´t help, also. You should try to have the aircraft correctly illuminated, even on a night shot.
I find the level rejection a bit picky. Play a couple of notches CW and CCW and see if the image looks better.
Hope it helps.
