Took this picture on a hazy day at LAX but post editing can only do so much. What are some problems with this shot. Thanks for your help.

It's a bit on the bright side!!!!! *removes sunglasses*

It's also leaning to the right and there's too much heat haze.

Overexposed, contrast, soft, quality.

Sorry, it has little chance to make it.

The biggest issue here is heat haze. It's extending all over the aircraft. Too pity as it's really a great shot motivewise and without the heat haze it might have been salvageable for

Well I think that the heat haze from the engines has made this picture unacceptable, but on the other hand there's nothing one can do about those huge engines. All i can say is try to get those heat hazes on a blue background or the blue sky so that it is not clearly visible.

first thing I saw it's the heat distortion...This alone will make it a 100% rejection...  Sad
