Needs more contrast throughout. I figure the weeds will bring the next rejection for foreground clutter, though.

I agree that that is likely to happen.

Im surprised I wasnt hit with the weeds first time. Although I kinda like the weeds look in this pic for some reason, but thats just me ha.

I'll third that "foreground clutter" will most likely be the next rejection. I think this is the perfect example of one of the things that frustrates people most on RP. I consider "foreground clutter" to be a killer rejection, and three of us have noted it could be a problem. That should have been the first rejection, if indeed it eventually gets rejected for it. Personally, I don't like someone wasting my time. Likely, correcting for "contrast" would be an unnecessary waste of the photographers time. The operative word here is "unnecessary." Just my two cents.

My guess is that the screener didn't even note the weeds, just saw the NS engine was grey and hit contrast. He'd see it next time though
