    Thank you again. I know it is kind of a thankless job and the request does not stop, so I appreciate you all looking into it. I made small adjustments (CCW rotation and slight increase in temp). Please let me know how it looks now. I will then upload it and cross my fingers

    Yes, better. Would be ok for me as-is, but I see two minor issues that could still present an issue: horizon (maybe a touch of CCW needed), and a very slight blue cast. Up to you whether you want to adjust those as well.

    Contrast too low, and maybe a touch soft.

    Not backlit.

    They may appear back-lit, but they actually are into the sun. Meaning light is coming from the front.. Taken in the evening at LAX, with sun setting in the West and in the direction that these take off...
    For the context of JP, these are in fact considered backlit. Despite the sun being no more than a few degrees past 90 from your left, the whole side of the aircraft visible to you is in shadow. I'm quite familiar with such a set up, as my local airport also has east - west orientation of the main runways, and the sun will creep to the 'north' side mornings and evenings in the summer. Use this tool to better plan your spotting session next time:

    Have a great labor day!

    Not sure what you mean by 'potential picks', but these are all backlit, so none would be acceptable here.

Also, can you please elaborate on dirty? I looked at the upload guidelines and was looking for sensor dust spots in the sky.. I have also added one more picture. Is this soft as well?
