With both your first and second shots I'd say they're questionable crops. I'm not a fan of photographers that crop out engines on a B747, its a 4 engine plane afterall. Also its a very busy picture in the background, gets distracting. The AA
photo is nice but also a wierd crop, something the screeners dont like.
I like your BA
photo, however. I'm curious why they didn't like that one.
