1,2,3: not quite as sharp as they should be, but there's not much in it. Perhaps heat haze is playing a part in this lack of sharpness? Without exception they are leaning to the right. The colours also seem a little "muddy"
As to the Northwest 747 - I like the shot, the framing is great, but the colours seem to be very dull indeed. Try increasing the contrast and colour saturation on this shot to see if you can improve it that way.

Thanks for all your comments. I have tried all kinds of settings but cannot get any sharper shots. It was a little hazy, but not too bad that day (Hong Kong is always hazy!). Do you think maybe there's something wrong with my camera? Or could it be due to the fact that I was shooting with max zoom (i.e. 10x at 370mm)? (I use Canon's Pro90, settings were exposure compensation -1/3, saturation high, sharpness and contrast normal).
