Those photos are too small to comment on quality issues. But for motive issues, on the MD-11 I would crop in farther on the right side of the photo, and on the C-17 the engine is cut off on the right, and it looks mostly backlit. The tail is cut off too - not sure if that would be a problem.

Quoting AirMalta (Thread starter): my acceptance rate since with 2183 photo on the database my skills deteriorated apparently as currently 28% ...
With all due respect, if you have that many photos on the database, you should be abe to see why these two examples aren't up to the standard required for the database. As vikkyvik mentioned, the lighting on the C17 is your main problem although the MD11 isn't too bad, it might be salvagable with a good edit but it looks noisy and the contrast is way off.
