I'd remove them. Seriously, the motice on both are not great. Cutting large portions of the a/c out of the frame doesn't work, and neither are level for starters. There are other issues as well, but the first two mentioned are killers.

airliners.net has extremely high quality standards. Sorry to say so, but your photos are nowhere near meeting these standards. (Neither are mine, so no offense intended )
Please do not let this disappoint you. It takes a lot of time and patience to learn how to make good photos. If you are interested in photography, keep practicing. It will be time well spent
Some general advice, if you really want to learn about photography: start learning what the various settings of your camera mean, and what influence they have on the pictures you take.
Most important settings are shutter speed, focal length, aperture, ISO / luminous sensitivity.
(Sorry, I don't speak Dutch, but in German, these would be: Belichtungszeit, Brennweite, Blendenöffnung, ISO / Lichtempfindlichkeit.)
There is plenty of sources both in books and on the internet, that will explain what is behind these settings, and how they influence the photos you take.

Quoting Jeff747 (Reply 5): Flynavy i don't know if that last sentence was a compliment or not.
It wasn't a meant to be compliment. It is a fact that a VAST majority of photos on Airliners.net are taken with digital SLR cameras and various lenses. In additon, they are post-processed. The standards are high for a reason. While it's fine you think your photos are "neat" they will not cut it here. There are a few exceptions, as in there are a handful of photos here taken with point-and-shoot cameras, but they are generally an exception to the rule but keep in mind that they still meet the motive and quality standards that have been set it place.
The way I see it, you can either embrace the rules that the entire community has set forth for photography, or watch your acceptance ratio dwindle.
Your photos above will not get accepted, whether your like it or not, and rightly so.
