You know how sometimes you have a picture you really like but you're not sure it's quite up to a.net standards? Well, welcome to yet another one of such threads. All these photos were roughly edited just to have a slight idea of what it would look like and if it can be improved. Photo 1: http://www.pbase.com/senorcarnival/image/59281540
I like the late afternoon sunlight on it, but I think the fact the tail is somewhat cut off (even on the original, I know, my fault...) would get the dreaded motive boot.
Are extreme nose close-ups acceptable if the pilots aren't waving or any of that? Also, is that white speck under the cockpit a hot pixel or just a plane showing signs of age? I wasn't sure if I should clone it out or not.
Another sort of close-up. Would it be correct to say that the reflections (especially near the U.S. flag and on the landing gear "door") on the plane would botch this shot?
I had to use a 3:4 crop ratio because I couldn't crop it on a 2:3 (or 3:2 for that matter) without cutting something out, like part of the landing gear. What is wrong with the motive? Mind you, I'm not disputing your opinion, I just want to gain insight as to what you feel is bad about the motive. What about size? Is it just the square thing?
I can indeed get better centering on a 3:2 ratio, this would make the fuselage centered but the furthest away engine still sits low in the frame. If the fuselage is centered, would it correct the centering part?
I know you have some photos to screen, so thanks a lot for taking your time to help me out.

I suggest when taking the photo initially, think about centering. If you want to prepare for some flexibility with editing, you can also decrease your zoom while taking the shot.
Some might say to just clone some extra sky in, but that is a big no-no and could also lead to rejection.
EDITING Rejection reason Deliberate attempts to alter the image, i.e. by digitally removing or adding objects, or by purposely changing certains items in the image.
For reference motive can be easily explained with:
MOTIVE Rejection reason Your photo(s) showed a motive that is not accepted by Airliners.net. This problem may be due to a very wide range of reasons.
Some examples are:
...Photos showing just a part of an aircraft (with no motivation for doing so...

Not a problem! I'm glad to be of assistance.
