Oh, I know. But if someone says ‘low on fuel’, I assume in general. If the phrase is along the lines of ‘fuel for one more attempt’ that’s different.

I would give you a pass on the runway exit photo. For the takeoff photo, the aft fuselage still blends in with the sky and it doesn't seem fixable. Perhaps if you have another photo in the sequence where the trees can be seen behind it it would look better.
