Should I Appeal
 
Hi everyone
I was wondering if I should appeal this photo. It was rejected for poor lighting (backlit). I'm thinking the screener might have messed up?

The backlit has me confused because it was overcasted out that morning. :confused:

If it was actually snowing at the time you took this it would of had a chance, but I would not think it would make it in on appeal, as this is common power/overcast..

Ignore everything until after the or in the rejection --

Poor lighting (Backlit): The image is backlit or doesn't feature enough nose light on the subject.

RP needs to eliminate the (Backlit) from the rejection. It seems to me that a number of contributors, especially new to the site, assume that the only reason for the rejection is because the screener felt that the subject was backlit when infact it is because of a poor lighting situation (ie. backlighting, shadows, high sun, cloudy, etc.).

Don't they have a rejection for poor lighting (cloudy/overcasted)? I know I have been hit with that one before but I can't remember right now how it was worded. When I uploaded the photo I thought if it was going to be rejected that would be the one. The backlit made me think the screener might have hit the wrong rejection.

If I were to brighten up the photo, does any one think it would have a chance?

I also have a color version of the photo.

If the screener hit the wrong rejection it the correct one would of been cloudy/overcast, sometimes they hit the wrong button, it happens.

Cloudy day/common power.

Unfortunately I don't think that one will work either. You CAN get cloudy day/common power shots in, but they must be more visually appealing to the screeners than just a basic wedgie. Something else needs to stand out in the composition.

Ok I will just file it away in the personal collection.

I have a few cloudy day shots in the db. Now I think I get it? Now it makes me wonder about a couple of my shots that got on.
