I'd say it's almost 'a.net sharp'. The windows looks a little soft (partly due to the over-exposure you mentioned), and the cockpit area too, but certainly not terribly so. This one's actually not too far off from submission, in my opinion. Motive problem with the fence, yes, but that's not necessarily a killer. There are plenty of shots in the database with fencing in the bottom of the frame. And seeing as how you identified it as a little over-exposed, I'd say you're getting your editing skills honed pretty quickly.
If you're not going to submit this one, I'd say you should be ready by the next one. Good luck,

Thanks Dana, I appreciate it.
My next try might be tomorrow. I'm going to try and leave work early to catch the FedEx and UPS heavies. My wife will be visiting her parents into the evening so I'll have some editing time. If I don't get off work early I'll be trying again this weekend.

I second Dana's thoughts aswell,Moive is fine for fencing since it doesnt obstruct the aircraft,Exposure is abit blown out but sharpness is quite good except the nose area where its quite soft but some select sharpening would fix it up.

I think you could gain some more sharpness in this picture by duplicating the layer of the image, filter that copy with highpass filter (2-5px) and then blend it with soft light onto the original image. That should give you the extra sharpness you need.

No problem, just give it a try. If you encounter some problems or need some advice using this technique, feel free to write me
Highpass filtering is pretty good for sharpening as it prevents the image from getting "pixelised" at high contrast lines and it can even give you the ability "rescue" pictures which are slightly out of focus.
