    Thanks! I tried to increase the brightness via the exposure slider. Do you think this is any better (it was a marginal change)?
    A bit compressed, but otherwise ok for me.

    Hello.

    For me it would be okay, maybe a bit dark but not that i would reject it for that.

    Regards!

    No, definitely not what I meant. I do appreciate each of your inputs.



    Is this one any better? I only have two "good" photos of this plane and ready to give up on both if this one is soft as well. Probably just need to work on my technique and skill of shooting more, but do you have any opinions on lenses with image stabilization technology for this application?

    I'm going to request the community pre-screen the A330 DHL photo below. Hopefully only a few more of these requests as I get more and more calibrated on acceptable photo submissions.

    Does anyone else do pre-screenings on here? Nonetheless, I appreciate your time and replies on all of these.

    Would be ok for me.

    Fair enough - point taken haha. I work for the company that makes the thrust reversers on the 747-8, so I was really hanging on to that photo. Not sure how many more opportunities I have to get a 747 these days from where I am.

    Moving on though, thoughts on the A35K attached?

    So, in your opinion, is the photo I have salvageable or should I just toss it and move on with my life focusing on other photos?

    Yes, this seems to be an original..and it is extremely soft. I've cropped it closer, and attached the most similar angle shot I could find of one of my own photos to compare. Hopefully you can notice the difference in quality/sharpness.

    Compare them side-by-side if you can, and you can maybe understand why you will be at a disadvantage starting with a lower-quality image.

    Sorry about that - I went back and checked and it looks like the edits carried over. I thought I had posted the original original. Here it is

    The photo labeled as "Original" is also the original image. I did not perform any editing on that photo besides to crop photo and take out unnecessary space.
