    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.

    I personally prefer the previous 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.
