757 looks blurry and OS to compensate.
Mu2 looks blurry (HH?) and needs a closer crop on the right.
C402(?) looks passable, but needs a tighter crop.

I understand the Delta and MU2 (yes it was HH).

N192AA: Passable
N190AA: Right wing OS, background needs NR, tighter crop on the right side (although that's just my opinion)
VP-LAD: Background needs NR
N36911: Blotchy sky
N14NA: Noisy

The 757's seem a bit affected by heat haze. The Cessna's look passable and the Falcon look flat and you cropped of a small antenna on the wingtip. Marginal light for that, but I think you could get away with that.

Both of the 757's are affected by HH? I could see the one on the ground but I don't see it in the aerial photo (maybe soft?).

And to confirm, VP-LAD and N36911 are passable?

Here's the Falcon.

Also here's a noise reduced Cessna.

Sorry, I can't edit my post. I wanted to make sure that the cessna noise reduced was better.

N14NA: Crop is better. I agree with Kas that the lighting is 50/50.
VP-LAD. Sky still a bit blotchy but not as bad as the first one. Might be able to pass.

The airborne 757 looks slightly blurred/hazy too.
The Falcon is still a bit flat, the light not doing you any favors unfortunately.
VP-LAD looks passable.

- I like the first C208 photo better, but both are a bit marginal.
- The Cape Airs seem passable.
- The Saab is a bit blurry on the nose but otherwise not too bad.
- Both Gulfstream photos look blurry.

Do you think the Caravans are fixable? If they are, in what way should I fix them?

Also, I applied some selective sharpening, how does it look now? Also, would this be able to make it regardless? I don't understand what you mean by "not too bad."

Unfortunately the Saab still looks blurry on the nose. The Caravans look slightly blurry and I don't think much can be done to improve them. You could give it a try, but I wouldn't hold my breath,

That's okay, I'll keep practicing and I'll have three cape airs in the queue! :lol:

I like it, but it's not going to make it here. Blurry/OOF and low quality in general, sorry.

Yeah, I thought so. I'll leave it on my hard disk for the memories though. :)

1) poor crop, poor light
2) not bad, but some banding in the sky and not much to see.
3) UE, very marginal quality and the cropped winglet of the 757 looks odd.

Sorry to say, but I would likely reject all 3.

Hello again.
I think I fixed the blur on the nose of an old photo.

In general blurry can't really be fixed though. The cockpit/nose still looks a bit hazed, I'm 50/50 on it.

Caribbean: very blurry and hazed
JB: quite oversharpened/jaggy, poor crop. Are you srue it isn't blurry and OS to compensate?
Kalitta: seems passable
VS: jaggy, marginal quality
AK: blurryish nose(gear), marginal quality

Thank you for the opinions. How should I go about cropping the JetBlue? The original without sharpening looked good in my eyes and I think I overdid it with sharpening.

I would expand the crop to try and fit the rest of the wingtips in if that's possible. If not, then I would crop towards the left engine and right horizontal stabilizer while keeping the nose and the whole tail in-frame.

Caravan looks backlit
United B737 looks top-lit (poor lighting); not sure if that will make it
Cape Air looks soft
N477RS is soft in the nose area
American A321 looks dark/backlit; definitely won't make it
Delta B752 needs CCW rotation; poor lighting

1: Backlit and poor crop, there are other problems but backlit and poor crop are the killers.
2: Lighting is fine, maybe a touch soft, but maybe ok.
3: A little soft around the tail and reg.
4: Same as #3
5: Backlit, heat haze, soft, I don't think this will make it.
6: Not a great Crop, also some minor heat haze.
