Hi all,
So thanks to the NIFC, US Forest Service (And my Airport employment SIDA badge) I was able to get upclose and personal with the Fire Bombers here in Boise, and manged to get some pics of the inside of them. I just want to know if the Motive factor is there.
Thanks!

The one inside the Coulson Is to big, I'm fixing that one.

Hi Colin,

First looks alright to me, although don't take my word for it as I'm not the best at determining sharpness. Maybe a little low in the frame. Doubtful on the motive on the second, but I have seen some more unusual shots get accepted, so again, I'd wait for a second opinion.

Cheers,
Amrit

Hi,

The first looks oversharpened at the titles, and I am unsure about the motive on the second.

I think the motive on the second might be okay, but it is a bit subjective... I would consider a wider shot if you have one just to make it more obvious that this is inside an aircraft.

The first looks just a bit oversharpened, there's some banding in the sky, and appears to need some CCW. Also looks slightly contrasty, but maybe ok.

The second....Can't really say, but I'd give it a shot. Just include a note to the screeners as to what we're looking at.

Too big? What do you mean?

Agree with Vik, first one needs CCW rotation, banding sky, over saturated color, OS title; Debatable motive for second one, a no go for me, but you can give it a shot.

It says it's to big on the upload, but i have it 1200x725...

Okay, I'll fix that one.

1200 x 725 would be too small in height. But the image shows up as 1200 x 807, which would be 1200 x 795 minus the copyright bar, so not sure what you mean. Maybe too big in file size?

an uncropped Nikon file, isn't it?

That would be my guess too, over the 1MB limit.
