Is This One Worth A Fix Up?

This shot got rejected. I understand the oversharpening and will get help with the contrast. I am wondering about the cropping:

I got a personal note that it is too low in the frame. I can not go any lower. And it is cropped 3:2 ratio, so I can not take more off the top. Does this mean the shot is a write off for A,net?

Send the original to office@papchristopher.at or post it here and I will do my best to correct the center rejection.
Best regards,
Christopher

There IS scope for cropping more off the top, because of the empty space behind the tail.

Of course, you would have to use the original uncropped image as a basis.

I guess part of what I am asking is do the afterburner rings I deliberatley left in add enough to the picture to keep in?

I have left as much as possible on the front and bottom in my cropping. There is absolutely no way to raise the plane with losing afterburner or nose because of a slight rotation issue. This is an uncropped/unedited version

Yes, I see your problem.

One to frame at home, I'm afraid.

I think it would still be too low in the frame. My guess is there's little to be done that would be acceptable here...

I had to stretch that grass quite a bit.

That is what I was afraid of..I am proud of the shot because it was a touch and go--the runway is too short for him to land.

So is the lesson I need to take away to not zoom in as close so I have more crop flexibility?

Or centre the aircraft in the frame when taking the shot.

I checked..he was on the ground 4 seconds! I took 21 shots. He was on afterburner from touch down. I estimate he was going at least 300mph based on the size of the runway. I don't think I did too bad having him centered..Considering that was a 200 mm focal length.

Edited to add a link to all 21 shots.
