Question Fixable?

Got this one rejected last night

I didn't think the composition was that bad, and I could probably up the brightness/contrast a little in the photo editor (when shooting a P42, you generally have to shoot at -2/3 of a stop or so to prevent the unpainted nose from being severely overexposed - I've learned this the hard way).
