Default When s a twilight picture 'too dark' or 'underexposed'?

Rejected first time, too dark. Lightened the mid tones a bit and resubmitted (this version) - now its underexposed it seems. Appealed and rejected. I cant win, obviously. My point - of course it's dark - it's ten to six in the evening at the beginning of March, its meant to be dark - that's surely the point of the picture! Plenty of good twilight shots get in that are darker than this - so what's the problem?

It's not dark enough. The other twilight pictures that are darker got on for precisely that reason. Unfortunately, the lighting in your picture ends up making it look like just another cloudy day shot.
