1. overexposed and grainy feeling. (bad time of day)
(could be bad processing that caused this?)
4. Too much space on the right, and "badfueltruck" (obvious)
5. My eye wanders the photo... engine? or people? engine? or people? engine? or people?
6. Definitely "badexposure". The ray of light and the windscreen tricked your exposure. You are not showing both yokes which you could have if you took this in landscape mode versus portrait mode. There are reflections on the instrument panel. Lots of soft stuff that should be in focus on the pedestal. It has that grainy feeling too. If you had exposed for the outside then used some fill flash it might have helped, but at that time of day it would be "iffy".
It is a fun show, but it's not suited to photography.

I like these. With the exception of the cockpit shot, and the engine/people shot, I think every one of those could be rescued. The badquality rejections are only marginally so; I'd be definitely tempted to spend some time working on them.
My first thought when I looked at the first three was "Bloody hell, it looks hot there!". The sunlight looks almost overwhelming, but I reckon the exposure is okay on the first three. Have a play with the tone curves or shadow/highlight tools. Try and bring out some more contrast in the picture - slightly richer blue to the sky etc.
It looks like you've got that light that washes out edges ever so slightly, which means that USM doesn't work so well. I think that might cause you problems on 2 & 3 (of the first set).

As I get older my eyesight is supposed to be heading down the toilet so I'm surprised no-one has mentioned all the dust spots in the first three shots which may explain the bad quality rejection. The first two shots in particular have a lot.
The good news is I think N808WEngineRamp is terrific. BadMotiv is always a tough reason for a rejection but life goes on.
