Different screener, different decision. But there is a slight white framing around the aircraft...

In general, accepting or rejecting skyshots is a decision made on screener's discretion. Each time overall quality (sharpness) is considered, also angle (unique and "wow" angles are welcomed, not a common side-ons), and conditions (light, vortexes etc.). Sometimes even type of aircraft can change the screener's decision. Rare types are considered as more acceptable.

So, there's no one, ultimate rule for skyshots. We're just trying to get rid of, generally speaking, boring shots, and everyone has slightly different definition of boredom, and slightly different requirements.

There are more technical domains with clear rules where decisions are still... surprising...

Rejektor's decision : under exposed....

Philippe, I checked the photo from which you've presented the histogram. And my advice is not to fully rely on it, as when you look at that shot, it appears definitely too dark.

But main issue with that photo of yours was a terrifying amount of noise, which shouldn't occur with such ISO value as 200.
