Re: Multiple rejection

Typically distant horizontal references are reliable as well as background vertical references that are at, or close to the center. In your image, the far edge of the runway in the background looks to be sloping to the left. Also the power line towers in the background are leaning to the left as wel...

Re: Multiple rejection

The biggest issue is CW rotation needed. Other items are passable for me. I recommend minor reduction in brightness and sharpening.

The main titles look blurry. At 1600 pixels + image size, issues such as blur get magnified. You might try uploading at 1200 pixels.

I agree with BWIAirport: Not a strong motive for the perspective that you have shown. Also due to the back-lighting, it will be considered underexposed. The second image also has the window frame cropped which will also draw a "motive" rejection.

Re: Post-screening — oversharp

The image shows jaggies in various places and shows it clearly at this large size. The recommendation by the screeners to try a smaller size is that that it would perhaps mask some of the jaggies. At 1900 pixels everything is clear in view, but also magnifies any minor flaws.
