Re: Pre-Screening for balz18

It could work with less space above the tower. I'm not on my screening monitor, but it appears that image is underexposed and over sharpened as well. Remember that if the fence occupies 1/3 or more of the space from the bottom of the frame, it will likely draw a motive rejection. Sharp looking (no ...

Pre-Screening for balz18

Afternoon All, Tried to do my best with this one. Its a new paint/new title jet so it went the priority route. It got denied for it being too low in the frame which honestly I thought would be its downfall. I have plenty of space to recrop it, however I am trying to obviously avoid the fence as much...

Re: UAL @ BWI

I don’t think I’d say “given up” I’d say more like they shifted their true focus elsewhere. With CLT and MIA for AA and ATL for DL in the south UA likely doesn’t want to focus on growing BWI over say DCA or IAD which does suck but it’s business.

Sure, it helps that I live just south of MIA and every other place I’ve lived has been near one of their hubs (DFW, PHX, ORD) but I go out of my way in many occasions to fly with them or OW partners.
