Default The contrast conundrum

This was rejected for the reason of "too much or too little contrast". Normally I don't fight these things but I think in this case the rejection strikes me more as a bureaucratic decision than genuine, useful criticism.

Any advice on whether this photo could be improved to pass the screeners' muster? Would appreciate any advice.

cheers

Paul

Could be a mistake in what button the screener pushed.

Wow, I do wish you had aimed a bit higher and included more plume and less foreground. This one screams "bad cropping."

Yeah, me too - more plume, less dirt. But the crop was bad to begin with - basically I was in the wrong place, but there was a photo line in the way

@JMC. Indeed, bro.
