First one is quite flat, and I wouldn't be surprised if it got an overexposed rejection (though it's not).

Second is soft. Not sure the quality will allow the size.

1: low contrast, technically not overexposed, but bright. Like Vik said, I also wouldn't be surprised if it got done for overexposed.
2: softish, flattish

Unfortunately both are blurry, so it kinda stops right there already. The blurryness is quite obvious, you can see that yourself as well, right?

Quoting kulverstukas (Reply 76):

Wing and hor.stab are a bit jagged (OS). I guess it's a little grainy, yes. So I agree with the reasons above. In addition, it could be brighter:

I don't think so, because it's not a part of the scene - not being used while the a/c is being worked on, and it's not one of those little ladders like the ones that clip onto the Flankers when they're parked. It just looks like a piece of ramp equipment left there.

Sorry.

Correct, motive/people rejection.

It could use a bit more sharpness at the front and tail, but otherwise passable.

Well, in those 2 it's not so much the people. In the photo above (kid climbing ladder), both the kid and adult are clearly identifyable. That leads to a people rejection (+ probably motive).

In the 2 photos above, the faces are less apparent, so probably not a reason for a people rejection. Motive is a different story however.

Perhaps a review of the rejection guide is in order... (emphasis mine)

Quoting Rejection Guide:
People
We allow people to be visible in photos and allow faces to be recognizable in photos.
People can not be the main subject of the photo or the sole motivation. The people in the image must contribute to the overall aviation theme of your image, and not themselves be the sole content/motivation for the composition.
We do not accept pictures where people pose in front of an aircraft, such as the example below.
The people have to be either accidental or motivational to the pictures. For the former this means we allow airshow public or pilots faces to be visible. For the latter it means that people need to have a function within the picture. As you can see in example 1a the person does not have a function within the photo. In example 1b however the person does have a function in the photo.
We allow flightcrew to be recognisable in the cockpit but we ask that you ask permission from the crew when you take the shot. This is very important! Respect the privacy of the people who generously let you photograph their working environment!

My interpretation would be to accept the first photo, people is not an issue, though motive could be with the people and ladder blocking the wing. Very minor though.

In the second, the people are blocking a main focal point of the aircraft, and don't seem to be actively involved in anything related to the plane. Would reject for motive.

The third has no people problem, but possibly motive due to the little bit of fence in the bottom right. Sometimes including more fence can help, witch should be done here anyways as it's low in frame.

But I'm not a screener... so what do I know!

The tug bar isn't attached to the plane, the guy in the middle is pointing at something off in the distance... so no, I'd say they're about as involved with the plane as I am with my homework right now... that is, on my computer with the right programs and projects open to get something done, but completely distracted...

I want to add... I really love the first photo. Something I wish there was more of here, the human side, images that show the "spirit" of aviation.

None taken, of course. It wouldn't surprise me for both to be rejected for motive, but I do wish that the rules would start to trend in the direction of accepting images with minor blockages due to equipment and/or people actively involved with the aircraft.

Perhaps this is pertinent, particularly #3:

Quoting Rejection Guide:

Motive
Photos with distracting or obstructing objects in the foreground (this is especially true for gate shots which are very difficult to get accepted due to their common nature and the large amount of equipment which usually surrounds the aircraft). Ramp Vehicles (including tugs, loaders, baggage carts, etc...) are allowed to block part of the aircraft as long as they are: [1] not blocking engines or wheels (exception: tugs are allowed to block engines/wheels if towing aircraft, and ground crew are allowed to block any part if not too prominent, which is at our discretion) [2] below the window line [3] part of active operations (this amendment is meant to exclude any aircraft parked with equipment in front of it. 'Active operations' is meant to include those aircraft actively loading or unloading.).
