I don't normally ask for advice on prescreening my photos but this one has me on the fence. It's a little dark and there is some heat haze from the engines towards the tail as well as a bit if noise. But I do like the way the setting sun is hitting the fuselage and the way the water is being blown off it and the reflection. Or maybe it's just one for the private collection. Anyhow here is is and any advice would be appreciated. Just click on the photo to get the full un-compressed size.

It definately looks a lot better once it's opened in full-size. Still looks pretty strange with the "ripples" on the fuselage though!
Water, you say? Had it been to the cleaners? (...or is it a case of "Runaway rain-repellant pump" )
A little too dark, me thinks. Otherwise, quality looks OK to me.
I like your other shots in the DB better!

Hey fergul looks like a nice shot and something different.
For all its worth i like it and i would upload it but this like you said and others it is a tad dark and they way things are going lately it might be its downfall.
Whatever you decide to do ferg good luck with it.

Just in case people didn't get the 'private' joke between Fergul, Tim and myself, this runway DOES actually slope downhill quite notably.
When you are there it is easy to see, and charts show that the 24L threshold is some 40+ feet higher that the 06R end (and this includes it sloping back up a bit right at the 06R end). So if you are into replicating reality, the plane should actually look like it is going downhill, because it really is.
