Default Does the High Sun really kill the shot?

Had this one rejected for high sun, and undersharpened. I can fix the sharpness. But will the High sun keep it from the DB?

Was hoping the whole scene could help overcome the fact it was in high sun.

Any chance at saving?

Rather than the high sun shadows, I think the reason it was nabbed was due to the washed out colors, also associated with high sun. Not sure if you can fix that, but I'd try adjusting the color cast.

It's a nice shot.

Of course it dont, and neither does it not complying with rule of thirds, neither does a lot of other things they reject for here. It's their preference tho.

I am not seeing the washed out colors Chase is seeing, but I am seeing the harsh effects of light during high sun periods. The foliage looks bad. The issue isn't the darkness of the distant trucks, it is the overall look of the image.

I personally don't see a color cast issue, I don't see "wrong" colors, I see harsh light.

I also see reasonable rule of thirds composition, Troy.

I think the edits I did look better, just not sure if it's better

I basically went crazy with shadow / highlights / white balance, and the color channels.
