Default Rejected again - this time for composition

Worth an appeal? I really wouldn't agree that the composition is a problem.

Do you have any more room on the right side?

It still looks flat to me, like its missing the pop factor.

OK - I've given more space on the right (this is full frame now) and upped the colour slightly. Any better?

Yep, plus the nicely colored tree on the left is uncomfortably poking in. It doesn't look like you can get rid of it without really messing up the cropping/comp. Your second edit looks better, but I don't see any "blacks" where they should be (under the body/above the trucks). Try making your blacks...black, and add more of that tree on the left if you can, and I think it will look much better...good enough for RP, IDK.

Can't add any more on the right, unfortunately, I'm on full frame. I've upped the black though; any better? If there's no consensus, I'll give up with this one.

I think it was fine on blacks before, both to my eye and looking at the histogram. I do think it is a wee bit dark for such a pretty day. The composition is just fine.

I pretty much agree although you might could lose some off the top.

Hi guys,

As I feel after two or three rejections it'll never get in, I've gone for a different one at the same location, but I think I prefer the one above

Thanks for the comments anyway
