While I agree that the background in the second shot is indeed more spectacular and interesting I find the reflection on the aircraft quite disturbing. And it's not only a small reflection, but running over the whole fuselage. I would perhaps upload the first one if I was able to produce such great images!
Nevertheless, both pictures are absolutely stunning!

I'd go with the first one. I like how the colorful fuselage stands out from the grey runway and green grass. And as others have mentioned, it doesn't have the distracting reflection. Either way, great shots!

Thanks, I have a couple more without glares, but for some reason i prefer that shot with glare overwater better...i know how weired i am but out of those 2 pics, I think I agree with Craigo on this one ! If they allow 2, i would go for 2 of course!

Well Peter, I'd say that would be a double rejection as it's a preserved a/c so the sequence - if you wanna call it that way - is exactly the same but shot from another angle.
And I don't like the 2nd shot anyway the grey background ruins it for me.

Well, the thing is that there are three preserved aircraft of which I have a second photo, shot on the same day, in the database. I don't think these were accepted in error, so it seems to be acceptable sometimes. Admittedly, in these cases the difference in angle was greater.
When I started editing this Il-28 shot I didn't realize that it was the same a/c I already had in the db. I'm happy to pull it if it's felt to be against the rules or even the ethics of the site, but I could do with some clarification.
