Lens Hood on Tele ?

I am using a Canon 100-400mm Mk1, without a hood. I bought it used and it came without the hood. I often get my photo rejected at www.jettphotos rejected due to low contrast. Does adding a lens hood will help with contrast or not?

My accepted photos can be found here. https://www.jetphotos.com/photographer/31140
