I like it, but the cropping out of the wings could cause a red flag.

I think the crop should be fine, you've cut out enough of the wings to make it a well-motivated crop.

It's ok in principle, but I think your centring will be questioned. To me, it's too far to the right. I would centre it so the engines were an equal distance from the edge of the frame. It may get motive because the horizontal stabiliser is chopped close to the end. Either leave it in its entirety, or chop a fair chunk (as part the centring mentioned above). I think it needs a touch extra contrast as well. It's a nice atmospheric shot and I like the engines.

I would crop it differently, using something approaching a 4:3 aspect ratio, as I think it suits the image better, and also addresses the issues pointed out by Darren (remember, you can crop anywhere between the limits of 3:2 and 4:3). Here the cropping of the aircraft is completely motivated and will not cause a problem.

I have cropped it as I am suggesting - I hope you see more than the tiny little dot I will see when this is posted   :
Klaus' Photo - new crop

All the best.


P.S. Weird! Before I just edited my comment I cound not see my photo - it was just that dreaded tiny dot that we IE users see in threads these days with photos linked from profiles. But now I have edited the comment I can see the image myself in IE. Now how did that happen (and when are they going to resolve this annoying bug)?

Paul's crop is definitely an improvement.
I think you might crank up the contrast a bit.
