I believe the quality rejection comes from the common subject, a LAN 737 taking off which probably requires a top notch quality to be accepted. The weather wasn't favourable that day either which contributes to your picture not being crisp.
Not sure about the GOL, the quality looks good to me.

The LAN picture looks pretty oversharpened and blurry on a couple of places. Also I would place the aircraft a little lower on the frame.
The GOL picture is very nice and it´s an angle that is not very frequently shot at SCL. I see some parts a little jagged, though (inner flap section and fin livery).
Hope it helps.

Well, many thanks to Ivan, TransIsland, Ian, Martin and Gaston for your feedback - as usual highly appreciated!
Have to be honest, the LAN 737 was the fourth (!) attempt at uploading this picture, previously been rejected for contrast. While I appreciate the quality issues on it, it is just such a difficult and rare picture to get, since rotation at Rwy 17L at SCL is usually way much further away, but this 737 was apparently very lightly loaded and it started take-off roll at the very end of a cold morning, all factors which helped to have it flying just above the tower from this angle. So, I got the message and will not try again, and screeners will probably miss this picture in the queue !
Now, regarding the Gol, the only thing I can see is some slight grain in the sky, which I can basically do nothing to improve, so I went to another shot from the series to upload. In any case, this is still for me somewhat of a puzzling rejection...
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!
