Hey Man. I will comment on them but I have to warn you - I am not a very established photographer (on A.net at least) so take my advice with a grain of salt:

#1 - Definately a motive rejection as the wingtip is cut off. On shots like this, make sure you include the whole aircraft in the frame. It is also not level, Needs some CW rotation.

#2 - Looks a little underexposed to my eye

#3 - Again, motive rejection. On a shot like this I would use a smaller lens and try and fit the wing in as well.

Like I said, take my observations with a grain of salt and definately wait to get more opinions before trashing them based on what I said. Hope my thoughts help though.

Scott,

1. VA 747 will probably get kicked for quality. What sticks out most is the grain and noise on the engines. The red on the engines and tail looks bad.

2. It looks oversharpened (I am on a crappy monitor) I say this because of some sharpening Halos on tail.

3. Motive. Motive would be better if the wingtip was included and not cropped out.

Just my opinion.

That lens is plenty sufficient for close shots like this

I think #1 may be saved with some CW rotation, and a *tighter* crop. Crops that work on a.net crop to the entire airframe, or the entire fuselage, or half the fuselage. You have a crop that is halfway between the entire airframe, but not quite a crop to the fuselage. In other words, if you are going to clip part of the wing, clip a lot of it, not just the tip.

#2 looks too dark, and maybe oversharpened.

#3 is a strange crop. Showing the first half of the plane is fine, but why did you crop to leave in all the grass below? At 1200x1152, you'll probably get size and motive rejections. Aim for a 2:3 or 3:4 ratio. Very few square shots will make it here.

Can you post your camera settings? What mode do you shoot in, av, tv, iso speed?

Might have something to do with your editing workflow as well. There is a little too much contrast. For grain, are you shooting at ISO higher than 100?

You are shooting at ISO400 - that's your main problem. When the sun is out use ISO100 this will reduce the noise (grain in film speak). You also are shooting F16 x2 and F14, try F8 this should give you plenty of DOF and keep your images sharp. Try using centre weighted average metering or evaluative to try and get an image the is correctly exposed overall. Of course you can fix that in post processing but it helps to get as near perfect as you can straight from the camera.

Good luck .. Jid

Sounds like you have some great equipment, but it is the knowledge and skill of the person behind the viewfinder is a big part of it. Having a basic knowledge of proper exposure, aperture, composition, etc is not only essential but makes the process a lot more fun! There are a lot of books on photography as well as camera specific books, DVDs, etc. that can help you learn some basic photography skills as well as learn about the advanced functions of your camera as well.  camera
