    Add sharpening in post-processing.

    Would be rejected for contrast, centering, too far, and cropping/ratio.

    Ok, so is the fuel truck considered part of the aircraft when centering? Also, what is cropping/ratio, it's 16x9. Also, can too far be fixed by a tighter crop or would that be a lens with more focal length.

    Even if the fuel truck were to be considered integral to the scene (debatable), there is no reason for such a wide crop. The ratio is actually acceptable; for some reason the version I looked at earlier was displaying at less than 1024 pix.

    So should I try to get the crop as close to the wing on the right and as close to the fuel truck on the left as possible?

    In general, closer crops are prefered, just not too close. Browse the 1000s of similar images in the DB to get an idea. Also keep in mind the contrast is such that even with a better crop, this image would still be rejected.

    Ok, I'll shoot closer and on a better day. Thanks for your help.
    And I tried to save the image here, I'm not expecting it to be perfect, but would this very last edit suffice?

    This would be rejected for overexposure, contrast, centering, soft, and cropping/ratio.

    This is one from the same day, but I edited/cropped out the fence. Is this good?

    Would be rejected for contrast, soft, centering, cropping/ratio, and obstruction.

    Hi, so I got these pictures. Would any of them be considered motive shots?

    Hi,
    i would vote for:

    #1 contrast, motive
    #2 backlit, soft, contrast, cut off
    #3 soft, contrast, probably motive and cut off

    Have a great day!
    Best Regards from Germany,
    Julian S.​

    Took off the polarizer, but not the best light. What do you think?

    Very likely a contrast rejection.

    Too much or too little contrast. Is it fixable?

    Poor contrast due to overcast conditions. Unlikely to be fixable.
