Hi all,

I had this one of the Chartered AC 319 for the Conservatives accepted this morning

about five minutes later, their main rival's plane (the Liberals) was towed up beside it.

A really interesting shot to see the two political rivals parked next to each other, but I'm not sure about the motive... I tried to get as clear a shot as I could, with the least obstruction possible, but this was the best I could do. If I upload it as C-GAIG (the Liberal's 732 - it's not obstructed at all, just poor angle), do you think it would be worth it, given that there is no other shot of C-GAIG with the Liberal Party titles, let alone parked next to its arch-rival? Poor lighting conditions notwithstanding, is this pretty rare shot likely to overcome any Motive/Lighting problems? I'll upload it if you think it's worth it, and thanks for any comments and/or criticism!

Don't be too hard on yourself. There is motive in the shot but the angle is what through's the picture off.

It's a great picture, but like you said, there are some issues with lighting.

I don't the angle of the Liberal Aircraft. The words are a bit skewed and hard to read. I think though because of the nature of the shot, it might pass through onto the database.

I agree. But honastly, I would be surprised to see if the picture got accepted or not.
Also, The left wing of the Liberal Aircraft is a little out of focus. It's little things like that, that are going to down grade this picture.

Overall, AWESOME shot!!!
