at first I'd like to ask you for help to solve my long time dilemma related to shot leveling. I just got shot below rejected - reject reason: level.
I did appeal as RWY is not even close to be leveled in this part and shot was leveled in relation to vertical poles of a fence in the background and other objects outside of crop. Even if I meant this in appeal reason shot was rejected again. So my question is should I level my shots to objects I know they are leveled or to distort reality to get shot accepted?
At second I have another shot rejected recently - reject reason: quality, contrast, dirty.
How should I improve contrast? Does the shot need more contrast or less? And I really can’t find where it is dirty.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
