Any thoughts?
First off - and seemingly obvious by now, is that the RP crop monster thrives on centered subjects. It's nearly automatic.

As for underexposed - Looks properly exposed to me - can't have the numberboards any whiter. Two ways around RP's underexposed are a) simply brighten the image - sometimes it's more about the way it looks then whether or not it truly is underexposed. b) If you have a shadows and highlights adjustment, or even the center slider in levels, then bring back some of the detail in the shadows.

As for the first image - you can always resubmit a re-edited image. Feature is under "members; re-submit photos".
