In addition to the two photos on post #300, I have one more interesting photo for feedback:
Image

As for the two window shots on the same flight, would these count as double, as they both have window shots on the right side of the aircraft, despite different views of the Las Vegas strip?

The Cessna looks OS and marginal quality.
I wouldn't consider the wingviews double, but the first one is better than the second. The second is OS in general and has a much darker look.

Here's a photo that I took via my new iPhone XS Max while testing its capabilities for plane-spotting:

I'd say, perfect for a static photo up close, but would still prefer a DSLR for spotting commercial jets.

Any feedback is appreciated!

Image is passable. I am not a big fan of this motive though with so little of the aircraft visible in the frame. Perhaps if the skyline of Las Vegas was bigger in the frame it would appeal to me more.

Thanks Jehan; I have another similar shot that I've uploaded earlier (from post #301) that is much more interesting, IMO, but would have been rejected for dark; otherwise this photo will be kept in queue.

Both images look slightly backlit and noisy. The entire aircraft in the second image looks blurry even for that small of a size.

Thanks Evan; N730US is removed from queue and N138HQ is reuploaded with further noise reduction and further attempt in reducing shadows from the effects of backlighting:

Honestly, I didn't think that lighting is bad enough to warrant a chance in a backlighting rejection, as I have a similar photo accepted that was taken from the same spot as this photo under the same conditions.

The window photo looks nice and fine for me.
The other 2 have poor light and marginal quality and I would let them go.

I didn't realize you also took that with your phone. That's not too bad! FYI, I did submit a correction for the location, as it's 'In Flight' and not 'Off-Airport'. No action needed on your side.

Yours best bet is #1, although it looks marginal even at this size.
#2 looks blurry and the bottom is odd in terms of crop and a bit distracting.
#3 is underexposed and unfixable due to the poor light
#4 is actually very blurry and will never stand a chance.
#5 looks blurry and OS to compensate.

The Allegiant looks to me like it could use more contrast. Not the best lighting, but some added contrast might help.
DL 965AT looks blurry in the nose area.
DL995AT: Again not the best of lighting. I think a boost to the exposure and contrast would help.

Delta 738: Blurry, over-sharpened, Noise, Haze?, underexposed, colour. Honestly, it looks like you zoomed in with your phone, this has zero chance.

Southwest: Same, except the exposure is alright, but will also not make it I think.

I'm not a screener, so my opinion should be taken with a grain of salt, but in my opinion neither will make it.

I have taken both the DL B738 and the WN B737 with my DSLR as my usual equipment for plane spotting; I always do my best to bring my DSLR on every trip that involves flying.

For the DL B738, I've checked the "dusk/dawn/night" category since this photo was taken around dawn. I've also used auto-color to eliminate the blue shade as well.

The 717 looks blurry and poor quality too, Allegiant maybe 50/50 but it's not great.

Updates:

N663AR rejected for color and heat haze; will most likely be binning this one for good
N258NN rejected for compression, UE, and noise; will try to fix this one after I return from my LA/Berkeley/NYC/DC trip
N941LT rejected for noise and halos; I thought I’ve removed all the halos and that the photo was taken in daylight - that is, I shouldn’t have to use noise reduction too much (if at all); should I appeal this photo?
N913SW is in!
