I'm not a fan. I'd expect more "pop" out of the shot after editing. If you told me it was straight out of the camera, I might say play around with editing it and see where it leads. Save it for ten...

Joseph is correct and the rejection reason clearly says what they want. I see other issues, too. RP considers tis backlit although it's sidelit more than anything with shadows on the nose. The trees...
