    Got it. Thanks!

      Pre-screening advice - I've listed areas of potential concern and would appreciate thoughts or other concerns. Thanks!

      1) soft, contrast, exposure?

      https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8328441
      2) contrast, exposure, color? I like the clouds, but wonder if it messes up the contrast with a grey plane - I do have a shot without so many clouds.

      https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8327984
      3) centering (I've centered wingtip to wingtip and top/bottom fuselage), haze (for sure on the background plane, but not sure if that matters)

            1. borderline soft, but ok for me
            2. also ok for me, but others might have issue with the contrast. It's more the military grey than the clouds causing an issue.
            3. ok for me

              Thanks for your help. I'll sharpen up #1 a bit.

                Pre-screening advice and a clarification:

                1) will this covering be considered "obstruction"? I've previously had a very similar shot accepted and just wondering if that was a fluke.

                2) Reading through the "Obstruction/clutter" rejection reason in Upload Guidelines, it made me think of a former picture I had rejected and rejected on appeal.
                "Exceptions may be made if the equipment forms part of the motive of the shot, such as in use de-icing equipment, or if the angle of the shot means only a small part of the aircraft is obstructed, such as ground power units/cargo loading devices."

                Similar to the de-icing equipment being a motive to show the de-icing process, my motive on this was to show the loading process with the loading devices. Then I also see cargo loading devices can obstruct a small part of the aircraft. Thoughts? Would it ever be worth uploading a shot showing the loading process on a cargo plane?

                If I recall correctly, this was only rejected for "obstruction."

                  1. covers are ok
                  2. cargo loading may be ok, as long as not blocking too much, and also better if not blocking gear. Image also quite soft.

                      Pre-screening advice with potential issues listed:

                      1) Soft? Or blurry beyond help?

                      2) Centering (I centered vertically on the top and bottom fuselage, should it be on the starboard wing?)
                      Also, not sure if you can answer this but I'm assuming this is FR24 compatible? Are you able to weigh in on that?

                      Any other issues you see?

                        Yes, blurry/heat hazed. Not fixable.

                        Contrast a bit harsh, but otherwise ok. Ok for FR24.

                          Pre-screening advice with potential issues listed:

                          This was an overcast day for inaugural Aer Lingus MSP route (which lasted less than a year).
                          1) contrast, horizon (I used edge of grass behind plane), processing, centering (it is low but I wanted to get the water arch).

                            Centering passable, but soft and needs CW rotation.

                                Pre-screening and general question:

                                Potential issues - underexposed, noise, contrast.

                                This is post-sunset, blue hour. Is it generally a bad idea to shoot air shots after sunset? Clearly a "night shot", does night shot change some of the guidelines with contrast and such?

                                Thanks!
