Editing Question - Contrast

Hi, I've been browsing through my pictures recently and I thought this one looked pretty good for uploading.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2676/3981045310_ab06265d98_o.jpg

When editing in Photoshop I noticed the contrast in the upper part being blown-out and flat while the lower part is ok for my eyes. I tried both PS auto-contrast and the manual way, again with no satisfying result.
My next idea was to only add contrast to the upper half, but IIRC this method is frowned upon here?  Confused And aside of that, it's also not quite easy to do so...
Talking about the draft above, I assume this would trigger a contrast rejection.
My question is if there's any way to fix it -- or if it should go to myav.net or my personal collection right away... thanks!

My guess is that it's the exposure that's giving the top part of the frame the washed out appearance. If you could make it look natural, you could get away with selectively darkening the part of the frame that's washed out, but like you said, that's pretty hard to do.

Can't say if it would lead to a quality rejection outright - quality's not too bad, so if you don't care about your ratio if it's rejected (likely, but not certainly), you could try to upload it.

Thanks for your reply. I tried to edit using several methods but it does not lead to a satisfying result... at least not satisfactory enough for uploading imo. Well, I'll have to stay tuned for my next flight

so if you don't care about your ratio

I should...   and it's stuffed with two other pictures anyway, will see how they turn out.
