    The business jet category is correct. You're likely missing the night shot category. It's a bit confusing at first, but your photo has long shadows and a red-orange glow, so it qualifies as a night...

    I imagine this is a subsidiary situation. Sort of like how Skywest flies planes in Delta, United, American, and Alaska colors, but the planes themselves aren't actually owned or operated by Delta,...

    The cloud over the wing is common when flying through a cloud or fog, but I have no idea what the thing in the top right hand corner is.

    From a quick google search, FlightAware has it listed as a Lancair LC-42-5 50FG Columbia 350 so try uploading it listed as that and I think it will make it. No guarantees though because I'm not a...

    Yeah, this is low in frame. I don't think an appeal would work. Centering based on the windows is usually a good method, but it's more reliable to put the center of the photo around the bottom of the...

    The Pilatus PC-12 does not have a jet engine. Therefore it is not a jet. If it holds less than ten passengers it is considered a small prop though. The kind of fuel it uses has nothing to do with it.

    Gotcha. I'll do some more digging and see if I can find it. I do have pictures of all the writing on the airplane so hopefully that will help me. Thanks for all the help.

    How can a photo be blurry and oversharpened at the same time? If the subject is blurry, then there is no way to get it to the point where it is oversharpened.

    #2 in the original post also looks backlit. I'm not looking at the photos as closely as I would if they were my own, because I can't, but the second batch looks fine to me.
