On the Aer Lingus shot the light won´t be in your favour, since the backlit issue may cause grain when sharpenng. On other aspect I think it´s blurry, but may be saved with a proper edit. As for the motive, I think it doesn´t stand a chance. Like Viv said, the engine is cut and also I guess it wouldn´t be that nice if you left only the forward fuselage section.
shot is too blurry (out of focus) and I don´t think it can be saved. You may be lacking some contrast here, too.
It would be better if you posted your edits instead of the original versions next time. You might get better tips in order to improve your editing skills.
Hope it helps.
