    With these photos, I am worried that there might be some heat haze on these photos. I am asking for your advice on these 3 photos. If there are any other prevalent issues with these photos, I would appreciate it if you could bring that to my attention as well. Typically I ask for advice on contrast, exposure, and horizon with this specific airport. Thank you.

If there are any issues that I did not bring up, I would appreciate it if you brought it to my attention. Thank you.

    All images are soft/blurry, and noisy. They look like heavy crops, so probably not fixable.

    #5 should be ok, the rest still borderline for original reasons. 1 & 4 probably not able to improve more due to light.

    Night Shot category for 4 & 5.

    Yes, contrast.

    Contrast potentially, but would be ok for me. Also soft.

    No, but overprocessed, as the center of the frame is darker than the edges.

    No, but contrast.

    Only softness.

    Possibly, yes, and yes.

    3) Gate guardian in Colorado, any issues with horizon or contrast (do not be fooled by carwash building behind, its building is odd shaped)
    A bit dark, and maybe a touch of CCW needed.

    No.

    5) so this is a weird one, this is a Martin MGM-13 Mace tactical missile on display in Colorado. It has a USAF registration. Is this photo acceptable as an aircraft? Is this photo acceptable with the fence in the way (in order to get whole side profile shot, some fence had to be included) would this be dinged as an obstruction?

    1. horizon ok; if you can't find cn on scramble, generally means it's pretty difficult to find so should be ok. Just leave a note that you tried there.
    2. borderline contrast
    3. horizon ok I think

    Looking for feedback:

    1) I know the flagpole and lightpole in background seem skewed, but the plane looks level as well as the concrete blocks it sits on (imho), would you see any issues with the horizon or see any potential for a trip up while in the queue? Also, I could not find any serial number associated with this aircraft and the registration on scramble.nl isn't much help either

Same level of sharpness as before too. Please let me know if this photo is sufficient. Hopefully third times the charm. Thank you.

    Very likely a rejection for color/overprocessing. Quite oversaturated to my eyes.
