Re: Screening help.

A little brighter and some additional contrast should make it acceptable. Check the histogram...there's room for adjustment.

Not on my screening monitor, but the image needs CCW. The hangar in the background looks to be leaning to the right. Contrast and exposure look fine. Nose looks blurry, but can't say for sure on this monitor.

Re: what's better?

#2 would likely draw a rejection for "Motive" for the clipped tip of the horizontal stabilizer. Better to crop closer to the tail cone or tail. For this image, I think a nose-to-tail crop works best.

Re: Prescreening - NorthStarDC4M

The centering looks acceptable to me. The Dash -8 from this angle is tricky due to the size of the tail. Much of the fuselage (bottom) is underexposed due to the angle of the light. I'm not on my screening monitor, so I cannot comment on soft/blurry characteristics.

In you first set, they are all blurry towards the nose. There is also a purple shift in the color evidenced by the color if the UNITED title. Overall quality is marginal at best.
In the second set, the AA777 needs some additional contrast and should be fine. Same with the AA787.

Re: Post-Screening photos - fsx98

The angle of light is bad with the nose and part of the belly being dark compared to the rest of the fuselage. Softness doesn't appear to be much of an issue to me. That it is a common air-frame means more stringent screening criteria. I would save this for the personal album.
