    Excuse me if I only answer you now but thank you very much for the explanation, I understand what the problem is.

    Then I have two questions to ask for these 2 photos respectively:

    1) Can I consider it as a special livery?
    Yes.

    Borderline contrast/overprocessed.

    2) Can I upload this photo, purposely taken against the light at sunset to portray the silhouette of the plane? I read on the guide for uploading photos that this is possible, I also found photos on the database that are comparable in terms of conditions (for example this one https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/10180350). But for confirmation I prefer to ask in advance.

In all honesty I do not understand and I do not agree with the other reason, the backlight. The sun is clearly behind me in the shot or in the area behind the lens anyway. Otherwise the tail would not be illuminated and the same would cast a shadow on the fuselage, which is not the case. Furthermore, the reflection of the sun on the front base of the tail clearly indicates its position. It is obvious that the underside of the plane is in shadow, the reverse would not be possible, but the sun is clearly behind the photographer.

    The last photo was taken at 7 P.M. just before sunset, does it count as a night shot?

    Since there were two series of photos and there are references to both posts, is it not always better to ask when in doubt? Thanks for the clarification anyway.
