The Thai is a little dark around the nose and bottom of the fuselage but i thing a little brightening up can fix it. Also, it looks like its just a tab bit blurry around the tail section and maybe oversharpened in some places in the front of the aircraft. Possible for the Thai to get a motiv because of the main wheels being cut off a little bit but i kinda doubt that since it isnt much.
As for the 777, which i believe is Saudi Arabians, looks fine to me. Only thing that concerns me is that half the fuselage is covered in darkness while the other half is nicely lit.

Thanks for your input guys!
I'll remove the Thai and try to rework it, I also have some side-ons during the landing, maybe I'll try those also.
Yes, the second picture is a Saudi Arabian 777 and I really hope it won't get a motive rejection, I've seen similar shots getting in not so long ago.

That was my first concern when I opened the picture. With the light shining directly into the nose this would have been a killer shot! Also, in my personal taste, it is too high in the frame, since the cheatline somewhat divides the image horizontally, thus your eyes would expect it to be in the middle (although I can see that it runs above the centerline). Additionally, as NIKV69 already stated, it needs rotation, I'd say 0.3 CW.
Regarding the landing gear shot, I cannot really comment on motive (but I like it, for what it's worth!). I'm not quite sure about the exposure, as you have parts very bright (but not overexposed), and some pitch black. Additionally, it seems to me you put slightly too much contrast. Overall, I think this is a high risk one.
Hope it helps!
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!

I´m chiming in a bit late, but I´ll give you my feedback on your last posted versions:
Thai shot has some tricky lighting, as you already know. The direction of the light doesn´t allow for some of the interesting parts of the a/c to show in full detail, and it also creates contrast between the upper aft part of the fuselage and the rest of the airframe, that takes away some of the appeal of the pic, IMO. On other issues, be careful with the jagged 'Thai' titles and the fin contour, which is a bit heat-hazy or jagged maybe.
Saudi shot is very nice. I like the last edit. What noise reduction program did you use?
On the landing gear shot the exposure is off and it´s a bit blurry, too.
Hope it helps. Good luck with them!

Maybe you misunderstand me. My point is that it destroys more for honest aviation photography enthusiasts without First Class membership than it will likely destroy for people stealing photos. Less visible watermarks is better.

Sorry I am joining in so late.
As for the gear shot, I had a similar one of an Emirates A332 slightly from above photographed (many details like the axis visible) rejected for motiv even on appeal I really liked it, and I really love those shots!
Yours is a great one too! Leave it in the queue but it will probably get a motiv..
