452ju8.jpg is a good shot, and may stand a good chance.

The others suffer major quality issues and motive issues. You've cut most of the aircraft out on alot of them, which makes the shots uneasy to view.

Keep practising. I know it may be hard but try on sunny days. Quality is sure to improve and try to take shots where the whole aircraft is included.

Hi Fred

Your pictures present problems for being mostly blurry, dark and killed by motive issues. Not always do these apply simultaneously to all of your pics, but I believe you might not be able to solve all these issues. You´ve got some centering problems on some pics, and some size problems in others as well. Be sure to edit your images within the 3:2 and 4:3 accepted frame ratios.  thumbsup 
I´ll second what Martin previously said: Keep practising. His tips are spot-on, maybe you´ll need to shoot in broad daylight and focusing first in framing the whole aircraft and leaving close-ups for when you get more experience. Also, review your camera settings, because you´re having blurriness in almost all of your pictures, so I thought that maybe you were shooting with a slow shutter speed.  camera 
And at last, when you post, try to show some few shots, because it´s better for us to view up to 4 or 5 photos and not a whole 15-20 bunch. I believe you´ll receive more and quicker feedback if you post fewer shots.

Hope it helps.  bigthumbsup 

Cheers!  Smile

cheers guys, was only my second time out taking pics so il keep practising. I use P mode on my camera and shutter speeds were quite quick, normally around 1/400th. what process do you guys tend to go through with editing?

thanks again.

Quoting Flipdewaf (Reply 3):

There are a couple of workflows around. There is Fergul McClean´s guidelines (I believe they are in the upload page) and also a very complete guide by Thierry Deutsch on www.planecatcher.com/IGRR.htm if you like. You could look up for older threads with the 'workflow' keyword and I guess several posts will appear.
That could be a good basis to start with. In my case, I´ve read several workflows and took the best advices from them, and also learnt from the forum and by contacting other photographers.
Good luck.  Smile
