The AB A320 might be too bright for here and get an overexposed rejection. It's a touch soft on the titles as well. The LH A321 is a touch soft on my screen but looks good other than that.

Sharpness should be ok, but both are a little flat.

Both images were rejected.  

For the Air Berlin A320, the comment was:

"too bright"

I lightened it slightly and re-uploaded it into the queue.

The Lufthansa A321, the comment was:

"Weak contrast. Portions of the AC are soft."

I have another image that I need feedback on:

P.S Should this be put under "Airport Overview"?

Thanks.

When you get an overexposed rejection ("too bright"), it's generally not a good idea to make it lighter.

For the airport overview, I can almost guarantee that it will be rejected for motive. It has no airplane to draw your eyes too, and it seems like you wanted to show an air bridge with a couple of planes in the background. It would work if there is an aircraft attached to the air bridge and you showed that aswell (search the database for examples, AMS comes to mind for these kind of shots)

Did you not pull them from the queue and take in to account the comments above? If not, rejections shouldn't have come as a surprise.

That's the oposite of what is needed. The Air Berlin is bordering overexposed, ie is too bright. It needs the exposure reducing, not increasing.

It needs to be uploaded using the registration of the nearest aircraft and isn't an airport overview in my view. It'll probably get rejected for motive though.

Have to agree; what's the point in asking for advice when you're simply going to ignore it? Not sure about Darren, but I tend to stop giving advice if people don't listen to it.

I'm sorry I didn't make this clear. I did take out the Air Berlin A320 and changed the lightness, but not the Lufthansa A321 since that picture generally seemed okay, based on the comments.

But even after the change, they both were rejected. I suppose I didn't "make it less bright enough".

I really do appreciate all the advice and do not ignore them.
