"Thanks for giving us the chance to consider your image. Unfortunately, during our review we found that it contains one or more technical issues, so we can't accept it into our collection."
I captured this image during a heavy downpour, so there is haze from the rain, but the image itself is sharp. It was not post-processed except to crop the frame. I don't understand why it was rejected. Help would be appreciated.
I think for this photo you need a bit more contrast added as well as a slight increase in colour temperature. The photo is a bit too blue - cold looking, so you need to warm it up a bit. If you took this in raw, then add just a wee bit more yellow and a wee bit more magenta in the tint slider. You also need to reduce the highlights a bit.
