So I guess the quality standards have officially changed. Backlit is now acceptable. Noted. Thanks Andy!

Backlit, quite dark, low contrast, and looks like a bit blurry too.

Oh well....

As a multi-rejection submitter and a professional in the business of choosing photos for publication in print and online, leeway should always be afforded photos whose content stands out. Should the quality of a portrait of a stationary aircraft be impeccable. Yes. Should something as breathtaking as this image be given some latitude? Absolutely. Content should always be king.

If this photo were chosen for publication, I'm sure that whoever bought the license would add a good amount of brightness and contrast, at the very least.

Truly doubt it would be published as displayed here.

Agreed, but the point is, I wouldn't ditch it because it wasn't perfect. (and true journalists dont alter photos too terribly much).

The point is, the site had guidelines and acceptance criteria for 20 years, that this photo clearly doesn't meet. And frankly, they are very easy fixes that any capable photographer could make (with the exception of the backlighting).

Sad that a supposedly aviation enthusiasts site only caters to museum quality photos, and even more sad for people to criticize this amazing picture simply because of a non issue. A wonderful shot!! Lighting and all!
