Posted on the other topic, but never got a reply. So here goes again!
Reject reason: category oversharpened
Reject reason: quality centered category dark
I understand everything on both of these, except category. What would be the owner/operator for these two photos? Also, since the Maintenance plane isn't actually legal to fly anymore, does it require anything special? Thanks for the help guys!

I knew when uploading that this was risky, but I went on with it because of the two special liveries in the same frame, as well as the first of this a/c in this location (probably one of the very few of AC from here too).
Is there any way this could be saved?? Rejected for quality and distance (I think it cropping it dowb nore

Looks like you could use a kick of sharpening. I think parts (engine cowling, nose, wingtip) are on the edge of being oversharp. Don't go crazy with the sharpening but just hit the fuselage and tail.
Color? See below.
If you get that yellowish tint out of there the white will really pop out.
Looks like some minor issues that you can easily fix and have a great shot in the db.

Quoting Coxmaster (Reply 21): think i got the color fixed, and i sharpened everything that looked like it needed it. Thoughts?
I can totally see the difference. great job.
One Issue to bring to your attention though (you may already realize it)
the background is unbalanced. There is too much tarmac and not enough sky. The aircraft is the seperation point between the tarmac and the blue sky. There is way too much grey tarmac and very little blue sky; bad unbalance. Try a crop to balance out the amount of tarmac to the amount of sky so everything looks balanced.
Other than that, great picture. Really think it's going to be a part of this web-site soon hopefully.
So all i can see is the balancing problem (that can be fixed by croping), so ther than that, lets get that picture on a.net.
