Back from MAN on Tuesday I took my camera out on the flight home. Took quite a few and I have picked this out for critique. Is this good enough? I feel its boarder line but I have never edited shots like this before and i'm not sure.

I like it from a detail standpoint, namely the stencilling on the engine and the nice sugary clouds on the left, but I'm not sure about the composition. Ideally, I'd have liked to have had a wider view, with the engine similarly placed and sized, but with more of it visible.
That subjectivity aside, It's possible it would make it into the DB.
It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.

I think Ian is trying to rival Jeff for the most 'up front' comments in threads .
For me I think this shot will fall foul on motive grounds, I am afraid. Two things are against you, I feel (though I would agree that the shot does not look level - it would need CCW rotation) - the engine/prop combination look awkwardly cropped, and there is little of interest out of the window either - at least for this site. But it is the former that I think would be the killer blow.

Quoting Psych (Reply 8): I think Ian is trying to rival Jeff for the most 'up front' comments in threads
Nah...no-one's that harsh. Sorry I should have explained. Basically there's nothing of interest in the shot. It would have looked much better if you'd have included the whole engine cone in the shot on top of the fact that it's not level.
