    Hi there,

    There's perhaps a little room to add some contrast to both and I'd use the line of the runway as the reference for levelling the Delta shot, but they look pretty good to me!

    Thank you for your answer.

    De Delta was a mistake , I already had in queue, but I removed because the horizon wasn't level indeed.
    Instead of the Delta I wanted to ask for this one.

    It's a little low in the frame. Here's a view with a grid - if your editing software allows you to, setting up such a grid which splits the frame into thirds can really help with getting the aircraft central:



    As you can see from that grid line compared to the runway there's still room to level it up (rotate counter-clockwise), but it looks good to me otherwise!

    Thank you again PMN. Tried to use your advice in this re-edit. However, the rules for cebtering are sometimes a bit different, as in the past I got some photos rejected with the gear above the under horizontal line.Click image for larger version.

    The 'rules' don't change as such although sometimes at certain angles you do need to take into account things like the vertical stabiliser and the landing gear. It isn't always about whether the fuselage is dead central in the frame, it's sometimes more about whether the image is balanced. I wouldn't question whether the 767 in your latest shot were central if it appeared on my screening page but I think there's still room for it to be levelled - here's an example of how much rotation is needed to make the runway level:



    Unless there are clear vertical references near the centre of the frame you can go by it often works well to level to the runway if you're reasonably side on. There are some weird exceptions like Manchester and Funchal but as a guide it generally works quite well.

    Thank you both for your opinions and advices.
    However , with this kind of angles, I don't use the runway a lot to level.
    Normally I use poles and buildings, if available,
    For example, both edits were leveled with the building in the left and the poles in the right.
    In the second edit , I only removed these poles

    In that case upload as you wish, I can only give you my opinion as if it had appeared on my screening page and it would get rejected for horizon as it stands at the moment. Feel free to try it though.

    I think I'll make a different edit, trying to combine both of your advices.

    Thank you for your opinion.
    Number two is in the queue right now with increased exposure.
    Don't know right know if I re-edit number one in a short time as I enjoyed a very diversified day at AMS yesterday
    I would like to offer two shots of this day for advice/opinion.
    Number one gives me the most doubt

    Hi,
    Qatar has no chance as plane is way too dark compared to the lighter background.
    The Jordanian seems ok to me

    Regards

    Thank you for your opinion.
    Feel very sad about the Qatar, but the circumstances were against me, with dark clouds blocking the light at that moment.
    I will rest my case in it. Very happy for personal with it.
    Royal Jordanian is in the queue.
    Want to ask your opinion about to shots from the same day.

    KLM still likely a soft rejection, but your call
    EK likely rejected for cut off (wings clipped)
    UA looks ok.

    So thank you again dlowwa for your time.
    Question about the EK, one of the wing-tips was already cut off at the RAW-file (A second too early with clicking) is there any chance too save it with a tighter crop?
    On the ather side I got a similar shot accepted after appealing on an earlier rejection.

    Gave the KLM another sharpening fit. It's included again.
    And another second photo for pre-screening.
