The tilt of the plane and space below and above it are perfect; some extra space in front would improve the composition. Good lighting; I like the bottoms of the wings, etc. in silhouette but am glad to see the wheels lit. The white halo is distracting; perhaps a little less sharpening would have prevented it.

Nice use of thirds. Looks a little oversharpened - not too keen on the bright outlines of some parts. I like the colourisation, nice editing.

Ummm, I don't think he would have been in afterburner with flaps AND spoilers down, because that normally means he's landing, but it's still a nice shot :-)

What a beautiful aircraft! I think this is a great shot. You took this photo at a good time in the day as well. I don't think there is much you can do about the noise or pixelation unless you use a lower ISO. Good luck in the challenge.

The blue in the sky really frames the plane well. It helps to pop it out of the image. Looks like the plane is reflections the light of the sunset/sunrise giving it a warm color. Great shadows help to give it depth. Beautiful shot.

You captured that well, was it moving fast? You've frozen it completely, although I see it is just coming into land right? Pity about the serrated edges on the lower fuselage.

Great shot, only thing that would have made it better is if the landing gear had been pulled in before shot was taken.

Very nice shot. Too bad the sky was so blue (it sort of kills the afterburner a bit). 9 Rob the Swash
