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
    1. borderline soft
    2. ok for me

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!

    OK Dana,

    But how will I work the dark issue in this case out, while you're also mentioning it's too dark.
    Hope that you get better luck with the conditions or find a better angle next time you go out to get silhouette shots.

    Or is that also caused by too strong contrast?

    OK Thanks Dana,

    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

    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 a lot about that Dana,

    I've queued (in my eyes at least) improved photos from both.
    Now I would like a prescreen on this one.

    The colors were a little different, but I had to off-center the aircraft to include the entire sun here.
    Is such kind of centering acceptable in this case and if so how is this one in terms of at least, contrast, color and processing?

    Thanks in advance.
    Soft, but otherwise works for me.

    I've re-edited that one again and could add more sharpness, that re-edit got accepted finally.

ID:	1103945 Main question if this one is sharp enough. It looks soft or even a little heat-hazed to me. Extra eye on contrast, exposure and horizon would also be appreciated

    A total prescreen would be nice here. Don't know if something like this is acceptable. Low sun shining through the clouds here (around 45 minutes before sunset.)
    I've ried to stretch the histogram as far as possible, but unsure about at least, sharpness, exposure and total processing.

    Thanks in advance.

    Would the revised Etihad still get rejected for softness?
    Would be ok for me, but that's just my opinion.
