Did you have a specific question about these?

I think he would like prescreening from the title..!

Yes, just general go/no go for these.

I think #5 might be a little white washed now that I look at it so disregard that one.

Ok, as-is, I think the A-4 would have the best shot. You've also posted them at various sizes, but I'd suggest keeping them at 1024 for the best chances. In terms of quality, the second and fourth might also stand a chance with better centering.

Roger. Thanks for the tip about centering on 2 and 4; I have plenty of room from the un-cropped to fix those. As far as color balance and motive, are they all OK (for now neglecting centering and noise from compression for flickr)? Mainly, I'm worried about motive for the grass strip shot (#4).

*Updated centering on links 2 and 4. Should still work from the same link.

I don't see any obvious problems with color on any of them. Here are my thoughts on the motives:

1. Not sure about the rope, but Dana said this one had the best shot so I guess it's okay.
2. More centering than motive, but it looks awkward with the body of the plane on the right side of the image. I expect it would get a Centered rejection.
3. No problem with motive here.
4. This is a perfectly acceptable motive and shots like this seem quite popular. I might try to bring the runway lower in the frame to emphasize the mountains more instead of the empty space at the bottom. Maybe you could also crop tighter since nothing to the right of the windsock (that I can see anyway) is obviously aviation-related. If it's part of the 'airport' though I guess you could leave it and explain that in a note to the screeners.
5. I believe this would be a motive rejection because of the taxiway light in front of the wheel.

Alright. For the airfield overview, i did have the far end of the runway centered vertically in the frame but the previous suggestion was that that was low in the frame i think so I centered the runway trapazoid in center frame.

Do things like ropes on the A4 and lights on the ATR get motive rejection?

Neglecting things like sharpening and noise...

1.) Looks fine motive- and color-wise to me. I think you'd be OK with the rope.
2.) I don't personally mind the centering, but I'd probably pass it on to other screeners for more opinions. Also looks a bit yellow.
3.) Dark and a bit low on contrast. As Dana said, you may struggle with the quality on this one.
4.) I would move the runway a bit to the right. I would also crop it at 3:2 to cut out some of the emptiness at the bottom.
5.) The taxiway light would probably cause a motive reject, since it would have been really easy to avoid it.

Second will still have centering as an issue, as the crop is unbalanced. Fourth should be fine now.
