Default more or less contrast?

Attempting a b&w, but not sure about the contrast (per rejection reason).
Comments anyone?

The foreground foliage was a pretty bright green.

Would using the shadow/highlight tool be a better choice than the contrast adjustment?

I would say more, as the current version seems a little flat with lots of gray. I'm definitely not an expert though.

Definitely more, and in general it needs work. Plumes are generally white, yours is too far toward gray. And I barely noticed the number on the side of the engine.

Attached are two alternatives, both are an investment of 30 seconds or so and so not ideal, not sure which I would pick, if either, but they give a you a sense of the possible changes.

That helps. I think I'll start from scratch again; edit the colour version first before converting to B&W.
The lack of sunshine probably doesn't help.
