Default peq?

I am just wondering what you guys think of this reject? Should I try to fix it, appeal it or drop it? How could I re-shoot. Thanks.

That was a pretty easy reject for the screener. I imagine there are times when it's harder for them to find a reason to reject. But a very dark cross buck sticking out of nowhere into the sky is probably one of the easiest things for them to reject. Come on, Nathan. What do you think of this reject and why? There are ways to shoot a simple cross buck and get it on RP, but this is not one of them.

Why mine and not Nathan's? Also, I'm going to be really embarrassed if that's a halo around my crossbuck and not merely a sharpening artifact... hmm... I think I'm OK, see attached.

Be careful with fill flash in this situation; the retro-reflective surface of the crossbuck and/or pole stripe could blow out, creating a really unappealing glowing effect.

The processing leaves A LOT to be desired

Alright. I see that this shot is not that great. I will maybe try re shooting again another time. Joe, I don't know why you always come off as harsh whenever I post a pic up here? I don't know what I have done but I will try not to be mean. I want criticism as well as tips on what to do next time. Thanks guys.
