    I have another two examples, where I'm not finally sure if they would be ready for main upload. One take in slightly variied edits. I guess oversharpened and to much contrast due to leaf and trees and too much green depending at this location.
    btw:
    the location - are there space limits to announce the location?
    This one would be "Helipad Rheiderland Hospital Weener" or "Helipad Rheiderland Krankenhaus Weener" (complete literally german) - would that be OK?

    Borderline oversharpened, yes, but should be passable. Please try to use English in the location as much as possible please.

    I'll correct those details for that heli

    Wrong term, mistaken from german ww = Weitwinkel = wide-angle-lens
    I think of a simple wide-angle lens. It's the standard Zuiko 9-18mm (crop x2 due to MFT = equiv. 18-36mm), no fish-eye.
    I'll attach a sample, it's the same heli but not finally processed - it's just for general information on wide-angle shots.

    I see no reason for there to be a problem with this focal length, especially if with a rectilinear lens, rather than fisheye.

    1. Leveling looks about right. If the actual horizon is visible, it's of course best to use that rather than any closer references. Looks slightly oversharpened, but otherwise I think the processing should be ok.

    2. no good references, but it 'feels' like it needs a little CW. Also a bit oversharpened but otherwise ok. The location entered should be wherever you took the photo, not were the aircraft is. If you were flying at the time, then use 'In flight'. If you were at an airfield (as you seem to have been), use the airfield.

    'ww' means fish-eye or something? Such images may or may not be acceptable, but would need to see an example first to say definitively.

    bluebee - editing advice

    To get a little bit forward, I follow the advice and start an editing advice-thread for some of my pics here:

    I have an issues with one heli, pics have been taken at the early afternoon time with very low rel. humidity.
    First one is technical - at the dolly, what about my chosen horizontal levelling? I took the natural horizon (runway) unvisible in the background, the apron with dolly is not in line by perspective. Which horizon is the one to choose?
    Processing was done only with LR, I took away the light-peaks to get more fuselage details, desaturated some colours and increased contrast/exposure slightly. For my impression sharpness was also tricky due to the high sun and white colourscheme. I did focuss the typing below the rotor-head as a reference for the sharpening settings.

    Second is after lifting, taken from the tower.
    Desaturated and reduced peak-lights again to get more details, sharpening focussed again on the rotor-head typing. Which category is it? In flight or simply helicopter? What about the balancing in total?

    btw:
    Are wide-angle takes welcome or a no-go here or do the screeners decide instantly by picture when all screening-checks have come out positive?
    I ask because when I get the chance I take several WW-takes with a 9-18mm in mft. I see a problem with general centering from helicopters due to the necessarily variied picture format and the unnatural extended fuselage in ww-perspective...

    Greets and regards
