First quick look...

1. Probably too far away. The crop will be a small part of the original and will probably cause quality issues. Also ? out of focus / blurry and ? overexposed.

2. Same as #1

3. Part of the horizontal stabiliser is cut off.

4. Probably workable. I'll have a go and come back with the result.

5. Out of focus / blurry.

6. As #5.

7. Too low in frame to get a decent crop.

8. Probably workable. I'll have a go and come back with the result.

9. ? Motive rejection / obstructing object / foreground clutter ?

10. Out of focus / Blurry ?

11. Out of focus / Blurry ?

Anyone else with a constructive comment ?

Here's a quick 5 minutes worth of processing.

.66 CW rotation using the base of the treeline as a reference.
In levels..move centre arrow to give input level reading of 0___0.86____255
Contrast +6
Sharpen 1 pass of USM at 50__0.3__0 overall.
Create background layer and a further 1 pass of same USM. Erase jaggies that appear on upper nose and cheat lines.
Flatten image.

This is the result....

.73 CW rotation using the red pole in the background.
0__0.86__255 input level on the histogram, again moving the centre arrow to the right.
Contrast +8
2 overall passes of 50__0.3__0 of USM
Using lassoo tool select the nosegear including the wheel and add 1 further pass of selective USM at 50__0.3__0

This is the result....

My usual Photoshop workflow is as follows.....

1. Level the original.

2. Crop ( in my case I usually use 1200 x 800 pixels, 3x2 crop ratio but may sometimes use 1200 x 900, 4x3 crop ratio.

3. Set levels on the histogram. Bring left and right arrows in to touch the baseline of the histogram. I may sometimes adjust the input level a litlle here as well.

4. Equalise and heal any dustspots. Sometimes use the clone tool if the spot is close to a defined edge.

5. Adjust contrast.

6. Create a background layer. Use very sparing adjustments of shadow/highlight ( it's better to use the curves tool but I haven't quite got my head around that function yet ). Delete any sky area after this action to avoid halo creation. Flatten the image.

7. Sharpen as required until jaggies or haloes appear. Go back one action (Ctrl + Z).

8. Create another background layer. Sharpen again and erase any jaggies / haloes that appear.

9. Flatten and save.

Sounds a lot but when you get used to it one picture takes about 2 - 5 minutes to process. If you've got a good original then sometimes it takes no more than 30 seconds. The trick is to know when to stop processing, and in some cases when not to process at all apart from cropping.
