RE: Pre-screening: Exposure

Great shot! Love the angle and the light. It doesn't look to be overexposed per se, but it does seem overly bright. I would knock the whole exposure back 1/3 of a stop and go from there.

No reason a shot like that shouldn't be in the database, common or not.

The first two have really muddy contrast, noise, and are dark. They are also common frames. Neither will make it.
