I took a pause in uploading and spamming this forum, as for some time I was mainly only shooting in order to get some new aviation material to work on... Anyway, here's my recent attempt - how it looks like to your eyes?

Agree with others - looks like some motion blur, which you might be trying to compensate for by over-sharpening. Unfortunately, I don't think this one will make it. Another factor is how common BA A320s are - this shot would have to be 100% spot-on to make it.
Nice capture, and I love the light. Was this taken late afternoon - what shutter speed were you using?

Thanks a lot for the feedback!
& OK, I won't be insisting much on this shot
I just liked it as it was taken in a relatively low light (mid April late afternoon / evening time - 7:00 PM according to the EXIF data) and it turned out to be not that a bad result after all (well, given "my" standards ....
I am also glad that the feedback for the first time does not contain the word "quality" (it was accompanying my shots in past a lot) but instead only a rather specific comments appeared.... So maybe I am finally getting closer? It would be motivating! I just hope that the standards won't keep being constantly ahead of me
Photo taking conditions: Shutter priority, 1/400th, F6, ISO 100.....
Go with either Program AE mode or Av (Aperture priority) with these kind of shots and stop it right down to say f4.0 or even lower if your lens permits. You don't care much for depth of field with these shots, just getting a good shutter speed so that the motion of the aircraft won't blur the shot.
Especially in the low light conditions you are in, the camera is already going to struggle with exposing a moving object. You need the low aperture value to compensate in a way.
