Seems my old thread is locked up, and that one is getting too long anyway, so open up this new thread.
Got two rejected for dark, these are sunset time pics, actually sun was below or almost all below horizon at that time, so I want to keep the acurate light atomesphere of that moment, I did not brighten them up too much, that won't be natrual. Do you think I should appeal for these two? Thanks!
If you read the rejection guide, you'll notice that dark rejections aren't given solely for underexposed images, but also for images with really poor light (i.e. backlit, etc..), so don't always assume a dark rejection is for underexposure. The UA isn't underexposed, but the light is difficult, and it is somewhat noisy.

yes, the Jamaica was through glass, so the color is difficult.
The AA MD-80 was selected for dark, although sun was not totally below horizon yet, so that was wrong. It was also suggested to give a bit CW rotation, I just did maybe 1 degree of CW rotation to it to get this resubmission. Actually, it should be leveled to the horizon, although horizon itself could not be framed in.
Then this second one, the building in the background is NOT parallel to the runway, so it does not look level if just look at that, if to make it look level with some CCW rotation, then the approach angle is wrong.

Thank Dana. Time to re-submit some revised pictures, please comment on them. These were taken around sunset time, so warm light. The united Express actually was after the sunset, so maybe a bit dark? I am concerned with soft/oversharpen, contrast, etc. Thanks!
