I'm not sure about the motive, whether its acceptable or not (I like it, its a nice formation shot), but it looks unlevel to me. The photo looks like its leaning to the left. I think you need to rotate it clockwise if you can without cropping off the tail of the first aircraft. It also might be a bit dark (having suffered many of these recently myself!).

My comment on the first would be that I would fear for a rejection. The first thing I noticed, even with the second edit, is the effect of the heat haze caused by the jet efflux. I think that is having a detrimental effect on the quality, from an A.net point of view. I also think it is still a bit gloomy.
As regards the second, you might be playing with 'motive' fire there . I think it carries a significant risk.

Now that you mention it, I agree that the exhaust can be seen as detrimental on the picture. I will try to see if I can find a better picture in the series which I took.
Quoting VasanthD (Reply 7): It sure looks dark coz of the shadow area...did you try to play it around?
Yes I tried to play around with the levels, but if I play too much the quality is decreasing quite rapidely.... If only the sun would have been at the right place

Let's hope the screener who will screen the picture will be gentle
