Here are my comments:
#1 shot is blurry, dark, and I believe shouldn´t be framed with a portrait crop. Try also including the whole of the horizontal stabilizer next time. Also, size is off (even with the airliners.net banner).
#2 could work, motivewise, but you may have to work a bit more with the quality. Also, it has too much contrast and it´s a bit too dark.
Notice that such crop doesn´t help. You should try a 3:4 if you´re going portrait, IM believe.
#3 is dark, unlevel, and a bit soft/blurry. Try a landscape crop on this one, if possible, and be careful where you cut the aircraft, because if you cut the engine in half or the titles you might probably get a motive rejection.
#4 is a motive rejection, as you say, because it isn´t clear what you´re trying to show in the image, and because I don´t know if such close-ups are accepted here.
Also, quality is not good (blurry) and the image is quite dark as well.
#5 is a very nice shot, but I think that you should have at least included the whole AM logo. I don´t know if I wouldn´t have got rid of the wing as well. Also, notice that it´s unlevel (needs CCW).
Hope it helps. Good luck with them!
