Hey Evan,

They're not great; the AA and BA seem a bit sharp and perhaps oversharpened to compensate slight blur. The JB is the worst of those listed and I would recommend to let that one go. The AK is marginal as well, but passable for me.

For the first photo, if you crop closer to the top of the tail logo and to the engine on the right side of the frame (aspect ratio would remain the same), that crop would be passable as well. As for which one you should upload; the one you like the most.
