Re: Improvements and Opinions

The only three I found issue with were TF-NEO for the color looking off, AF1 but that could just be the chrome belly causing that really washed out color, and N304FR looking dark especially when viewed right after N717FR.

Len90 2018 Pre/Post Screening

Let's start off this year with a lot of rejections: Blurry and Oversharpened: The only areas sharpened are windows, gear, cockpit, nose, registrations. Didn't see blur on the full sizes when I selected the images for processing and uploading. DL 757: http://imgproc.airliners.net/photos/airliners/1/8...

From 3x week 789 to daily 788 to 77W! Is TLV going all 77W then? EWR-TLV is still 2 flights: one on a 77E and one on a 77W so not yet.
