Default Feeling rejected

Hi everyone. Merry Christmas. The first rejection was for "Horizon Unlevel." I fixed that. The second rejection was for being underexposed. Why did they reject me twice instead of just saying it was underexposed in the first rejection? Can I brighten and try again or is there no hope? Thanks.

A couple of things....

First, the Screeners sometimes do provide multiple rejection reasons when the image has more than one problem. I suspect it really depends on how many images are in the screening queue and how pressed for time the Screener is. You can imagine that screening 50-100 shots takes a while, even if you only spend 15 seconds on each one.

WRT this image, it would be helpful if you could post the link for the actual rejection. That way, we could see the actual image that the Screener saw and also see the rejection reason first-hand. The image quality on the small attachment doesn't look very good on my display.

Depending on the type of postprocessing program you are using, you can probably brighten this image sufficiently. You might still get bagged for Poor Lighting/Cloudy, however.

I'm not a fan of cutting off the picture right above the smokestack and water tower. I would give them a little bit more room to breathe. Also, note in the right corner, below the lamp posts, you left in some of the extra white space from when you rotated the picture.

Thanks for the insights. It seems I have a lot to learn.

We all did once, and we all still learn.

I think the location has potential, though. Keep working at it!

I agree with Chris about cropping too tight on top. Bring the exposure up but mask the sky or use the shadows tool. It is a nice shot.
