On the laptop now, but looks like the quality/detail of the two in the queue is good, but they are dark, and lacking contrast.

For the other three, you're going to need better crops for sure. The AM has the whole rear cut off, and might need to have contrast issues worked out (difficult with the ground reflections it looks like from the snow, I know). The NW will need a much tighter crop, and also some brightening and contrast. The AC DH1 will need brightening and contrast also, and probably a bit more localized sharpening.

Thanks Dana,

I think I will Give up on The AC DH1, however I Adjusted the NW but cannot crop any more without loosing the wing? The AM was a Full image @300mm so the tail is Not coming back... so I cropped It tighter. I also Added a AC 767 Tail Shot... Will this Get a Motive Rejection. I Like how dirty it is and how the old livery Is starting to show through.. Here are the Revised shots. ( I just got a big book on CS4 so my skill are young!)

NW looks better, but is still too high in the frame, and it would certainly be possible to crop it closer to the left side of the frame. Still not sure about the crop on the AM. Don't see many crops like that in the database, so I wouldn't expect much of a chance. As well, it still has contrast issues.

My favourite is actually the AC tail shot, I like the crop and what you're trying to show, but unfortunately, I think the quality is a little lacking, it looks like you cropped it from a much bigger shot. That leaves all the quality issues (sharpness, etc...) a lot more apparent. If you didn't crop it much, then maybe you need to do a re-edit and be more careful when you down-size it.

Well the AC tail shot is not cropped that much. I may have cropped the downsized version! I will re-edit when I get off work. Thanks for helping. I'll be back

Quoting CMAXXD (Reply 4):

That could be the problem, sure. Let us see the re-edit when you get a chance, I liked that one.
