Question Rejection...after Rejection

So I've been trying to submit a photo ive taken over a week ago, and every time I submit it, it was rejected. The good news, it was all "fixable", but frankly every time i fix it, there's another thing that pops up.

The list of rejections include

Unsharpened
overexposure
bad cropping
horizon off level
bad contrast

I tried fixing these and It just doesnt work. But anyway here's the photo.

-Thanks

Looks like you're almost there... definately need more contrast!

Lightbulb My thoughts..

It would have been better if you would have shot that from about 30 feet to your left.

The problem is that the balance and composition of the image is off.

There is also that post or whatever in the foreground - not good.

On closer inspection, it does also look quite grainy...

Don't feel bad. You're not the only one! But I usually give up after 1 or 2 rejections.

I like that shot. It is a little grainy though.

Grainy, and unlevel, plus, not a huge fan of the composition.

Your processing procedure (perhaps the sharpening step) appears to be creating light bands on the top and left edges of the image. I used to run into that with PaintShop Pro 7, and resolved it by toggling off the "antialias" option. See if your software has some similar setting you can change to prevent those bands from appearing.
