Re: Overexposed rejection...

Good point about the halos. This image should also have drawn a blurry/over sharpened rejection. The tail section is visibly blurry and jaggies are visible on the port wing, engine nacelles and main title.

The horizon needs to be leveled, or a vertical reference at or close to the center of the frame has to be level. Avoid using vertical references (e.g. sides of buildings, poles, etc.), at the right and left edges of the frame since these can be subject to an inward lean due to lens distortion charac...

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.
