The first one does nothing for me. What am I looking at? The rear of an engine or a satellite? You could have shown how clean and polished everything is and shown more aircraft by shooting from a rear quarter and not nearly as tight.
The second one is not level. There are many different horizontals and verticals in this shot but I would use the sign beneath the plane or the tail support on the plane to level it. I'm not a big fan of these side-on shots as my eye is constantly drawn to the wingtip but that is a personal preference.

The first one is a case of a badcrop in my opinion. Either crop more closely really take us into the engine or crop wider to include the airbrakes as well (although in that case you might risk motive again)
Second one still need substantial cw rotation. In these wideangle shots the verticals in the middle of the frame should be level (unless there was cropping on either side).
