I need some help, I haven't had a photo approved yet. This photo was taken with a Canon 5d Mark III and 70-200mm f2.8 II. I'm using Adobe Camera RAW 7.1 and Photoshop CS6. I did some sharpening in Camera RAW, then reduced the szie to 1200x800 in Photoshop, selected the aircraft then did UnSharp Mask 100%, Radius 2.0 and Threshold 0.
I know I have the equipment, but post-processing for Airliners.net is much different than anything else I've ever done. I could use any help I can get.

Always nice to see a Seattlite, so first, welcome.
My first reaction is that the color is odd on both. I think that might be the color space you are using to process, or perhaps that you are shooting in a certain camera mode that dictates a color profile? They look dark and green. You can fix this in Camera Raw/Digital Photo Pro/Lightroom, whatever you use to process the raw images.
The citation is better than the 767 for sharpness, but it's also a bit dark and very high contrast, the darks are really dark.
The 767 looks overprocessed, as if it were soft to begin with and then sharpened up quite a bit.
