Default Problem with Overexposed Rejections

Recently a number of my submissions have been rejected because they are overexposed. I've always used Photoshop to process the images, and I haven't changed anything recently. I checked the calibration on my monitor, and even tried submitting photos from another computer, but the problem persists.

Here is the most recent example:

These photos look alright on my monitor, so Iím not sure what I am doing wrong. I'd appreciate any help you can offer.

I would just scrap the photo. It's too tight and the sun is on the wrong side. If your camera has manual capabilities, try getting the correct exposure with that.

First two definitely overexposed, third looks decent enough to me, you could appeal that one.
