Thanks again, I agree the WN appears blurryish but not sure why, since the original is pretty sharp. Here's a re-edit with some more sharpening. Thanks!

Re: Are the motives and crop on these photos acceptable?

Latest shot seems quite soft, looks out of focus at the rear, and possibly blurry. Overall quality will make it hard to get accepted. What were the settings of this shot?

Re: Are the motives and crop on these photos acceptable?

The new version appears almost blurry and compressed; possibly the latter is causing the look of the former. I recommend that you upload your images to the queue and link here, that way it is easiest to see the uploaded version without artifacts applied by flickr, imgur, and the like.

Re: Pre-screening photos - fsx98

I don't think 794 has a shot. The original quality doesn't appear to be there, and the sky is starting to get blotchy from overuse of NR. I am doubtful about UPS as well, it appears blurry in spots.

Cockpit shots show noise the least, but if you're on an entry level SLR, anything north of 200 can cause excessive noise, so be aware of that.
