    Really don't know if something like this would work here. I could cut off the dark part of the clouds underneath here, but in my opinion, they add atmosphere right know, Also it's impossible to center the aircraft here properly in this composition. Alos an extra view on processing, contrast, and sharpness (have a lot of issues with that at the moment) would be appreciated here.

ID:	1104779 Sun took her final gasp of light here before disappearing finally, She was just hitting the back of the aircraft here. Not possible to include here, but also an extra view on processing, exposure, contrast and sharpness would be appreciated here.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks in advance!
    Both borderline soft/dark/contrast. Centering on first also borderline.

      OK Thanks Dana,

      Regarding the contrast on the second one, is it too weak or too strong?
      Do have the possibility to add exposure and sharpness on that one. so curious what to do with contrast here?
      On other hand, adding too much exposure will blow out the sky in my opinion, so don't really know the exact way to go here

      Thanks in advance

        Too strong. Silhouette shots generally only work when the rest of the sky isn't blown out.

          OK Dana,

          But how will I work the dark issue in this case out, while you're also mentioning it's too dark.
          Or is that also caused by too strong contrast?

            Hope that you get better luck with the conditions or find a better angle next time you go out to get silhouette shots.

ID:	1106324 Biggest potential issues for me here are the most the probably weak contrast. Maybe sharpness ,horizon and exposure also.

ID:	1106325 Biggest issues for me here are the sharpness, horizon and the color. Please note here that this one was taken a half an hour before sunset and it was a day with sun, fog and a rainshower also passed some time before taking this shot.

              If I might have missed something I would like to know as well.

              Thanks in Advance!

                  Thanks for that Dana,

                  Now I would like a prescreen on two other photos I'm unsure about

ID:	1106888 Is a composition like this acceptable? if so are there any issues with at least sharpening and horizon? People are unrecognizable, so that shouldn't be an issue. I can just use the aircraft data right?. I think it's not an overview. It was taken next to a spotting location at AMS.

                  Thanks in advance

                      Thanks a lot Dana,

                      Reworked the first before uploading and I'm thankful both got accepted.

                      On the other hand,
                      This one got rejected yesterday https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=8797842 for contrast and I don't know which way to go with exactly.
                      Could it be too much for harsh shadows or too weak for weak fuseelage/underexposure

                      Any guidance would be appreciated as I didn't get comments on the email on this one.

                      Thanks in advance!

                        Contrast is too strong.

                          Thanks Dana,

                          I've brightened up the shadows now. Is this any bette? Are there no overprocessing features visible right now?
                          Is there anything else I've missed now?
                          Thanks in advance.

ID:	1109260 Biggest potential issues for me here are contrast, exposure/glare and also sharpening .Also I'm unsure if the bush is not too distracting. (it should not be obstructing the aircraft).

ID:	1109261 Biggst potential issue here is dark/contrast. Some gloomy late afternoon light on the back of the aircraft. The potential better angles(due to light) were even worse IMHO, so I selected this one

                              If there is anything I've missed I would like to know as well.

                                1. looks like branches might actually be over main gear, in which case yes obstruction. Contrast also a bit harsh.
                                2. borderline dark/contrast, yes; if I had to guess I would say probably a rejection.
