Might just be my tired eyes.. but that first pic looks like the color is off a bit.

Same with the second, though im not quite sure how to go about fixing it.

I've put three images in the queue (instead of my usual conservative one at a time):

https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/DSC2566_VHOEJ_081112.jpg
https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/DSC2555_GCIVD_081112.jpg
https://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/DSC2600_VHEBA_081112.jpg

Just want to be sure I didn't miss anything obvious. It was one of those rare days where the weather played ball for once.  Smile I have a few more images - but I preferred these three to start with (out of about 5 or 6 versions of each).

Thanks.

Brilliant shot! Yes the motive does work, one with the similar motive is almost top of the day right now. But someone else might be able to tell you whether it would be too dark or not.

I love the shot!

How does this website treat formation shots? I worked with some military aircraft in formation, two different airframes and after chillin out a bit I decided I might share them with the community, however I don't know how to classify them by a/c. Should I pick the more prominent, or post them twice, once for each a/c?

The first three photos could all do with being cropped a bit closer and mostly some sharpening. Nice to see such rare birds!

The last two shots are unfortunately ruined by the cone in front of the nose gear.

Certainly some clutter involved, however a clear shot is not possible due to the location of the aircraft (at least, what's left of her). This is the original prototype L-1011 TriStar (C/N 1011), which is now the Delta Air Lines Heritage Museum's store.

Does this former bird have a place in the database here?  Big grin

The level of the red and white tower in the background seems off.

There is also quite a bit of heat haze on the aircraft.

Unfortunately - it's very hot, and the heat haze is just one of those things.  Sad I battle it as well.

You either have to get closer, or resize the photo smaller (1024px wide, maybe 1000px wide if it is still allowed) for those images where the heat haze is not as bad.

QF looks fine to me, but "Virginia Blue" looks too low in the frame. Open the image in photoshop, press CTRL+R to get rulers (switch them to per-cent) and drag down some guides to 25 per-cent and 75 per-cent, then you'll see what I mean.

The first photo looks good. There might be a slight problem with the level of the photo but other than that, should be fine. Mayby a little oversharpened.
The second photo may be rejected for Motive. It also looks a bit oversharpened.

I have leveled it using the runway that is level, and the taxiway is sloping so it would look awful if I leveled using that  Smile

The motive is a chance, I know, but I really like the photo and hope it can get in as creative or such. About oversharpen, it does not look oversharpened on my home screen, a trusty old CRT, but on the LCD at work it looks very sharp and close to oversharpened. LCD's are known to show images sharper than they are.

Flynavy, motive wise I prefer number one, but the visible Mona-Lisa is not bad either. Quality wise the second shot is a tad clearer and sharper. Personally I think they are worth uploading, I prefer number 1 in all aspects but it is possible that number 2 has a higher chance of acceptance. Both are fine shots under the circumstances.

Neophyte, wow, the first one is breathtaking IMO, possibly could be cropped a little tighter on the left engine in order to not get a center rejection. Austrian shows ever so light jaggies on the vertical stabilizer and border line blown whites on the nose, but I would probably have uploaded it..
