Re: Rejection feedback please

There are dark halos around the aircraft, especially visible when equalizing (but also visible by eye). Also 2 dust spots in the sky, top left sector. Sky is noisy. Sorry.

The first one is better. Second one has the hor.stab. cut off, which will lead to 100% motive rejection.

Re: Post screening Solro

I'm not seeing an airport nor the wing of your aircraft, making this a motive rejection to start with. If the top right is an airstrip, it's too insignificant.

Both are very blurry and of insufficient for 1920px wide.

Either way, these photos as-is never stood a chance to begin with, so let's start there instead ...
