I am wondering what makes a good tail shot, and this one I think stands a chance. Opinions?

Hey, Brendan.

Tail shots are always risky to upload because of motive. This one might stand a chance with some changes, but not as it is now. You need to have the entire tail in the picture, as you've cut off the front of it in this crop. Quality-wise it should be ok. Give it another go with the whole tail in it.

Here's an album by user "YYZflyer that's full of tail shots. This should give you a better idea.

The cutting of the leading edge kills it for me, and probably for the screeners.
The photo is also empty on the right side. These problems arise from the angle.
Good tailshots are often 90 deg side-ons, showing the livery best and avoiding the tailplane problem.

I just noticed that my self. I think you may be right, but I'll try to crop it up and see if I can make it better; but I didn't notice that at first, and sadly, I think you're right.
