Updates:

N7817J Window shot rejected for OS/UE; fixable, will try to sharpen less and increase exposure
N569JB rejected for soft, low contrast, and UE; I don't understand why this photo would be rejected earlier for OS and now for soft; otherwise, fixable rejections
N902BC and N202HA are in!

Here's a reupload of N569JB with fixes to the above rejections; any better with this re-upload or should I appeal the last rejected photo, or bin this one altogether? I didn't think that the previously rejected photo is that underexposed, though, as this one is pushing it beyond the point to where the upper part of the fuselage is subject to overexposure.

N85232 has some mild heat haze, but in the spirit of screening to accept, I would say it is passable.

Sorry to hear that...seems harsh IMO. I don;t see any areas where jaggies would warrant a OS rejection. If you reduce sharpening, it will definitely be soft. May be worth an appeal.

I do spot at airports on sunny days whenever possible, depending on time of day, as long as backlighting is not an issue; the WN photo was shot in the morning hours and was during sunny conditions; the private jet was taken in cloudy days while I was waiting to spot a DL 717 CFB charter that rarely flies to my hometown.

N946WN rejected for noise, low contrast, and halos:

I have tried to eliminate halos using the clone stamp tool, but was wondering if there are any other methods to eliminate halos.

N531FX looks soft more than blurry. Some sharpening should do it. Don't see noise as an issue.
SW B737: Slight halos are visible. They are typically a result of using the shadow/highlight tool in editing or the "Active D-Lighitng feature(in Nikon cameras). I am not aware of a known fix if it is the latter except to turn it off. The use of the clone stamp for removal is not recommended and makes the image look worse.

For me, while the lighting is not the best, this image is passable. Noise and Contrast are fine.

Several concerns for me with this one.
Image has a red cast.
Soft
Horizontal Stabilizer cut off on right side (Motive rejection)
Glare above window line
Quality is marginal at best.
Also, the winglet is the main subject, I presume, but is dominated by the tail and registration of the aircraft in the background. For this composition, would have been nice if the wniglet and tail belonged to the same air-frame.
Too many issues IMO for an acceptance here; I'd save this for the personal collection!

Not the best light, but the 2 SW's are passable for me. A little less sharpening on the Frontier and it should be OK.

The 3 UA's look blurry/poor quality, with the 777 also oversharpened.
The 2 SW's are also marginal. The first one also looks soft (except the titles), 701 also very yellow and still somewhat hazed/blurred. Considering that they were previously binned, honestly I would leave them that way.
DL looks oversharpened, likely to compensate blur.
Winglet looks yellow and has a noise sky. Also not that much of an interesting view in my humble opinion.

This was previously binned, now uploaded w/ increased exposure; downsized to 1024 pix. wide to mask blurriness; noise was reduced further and I increased a notch of sharpness.

Hi, the AA is very right in frame, perhaps acceptable crop but this was my first impression. The clouds have some unnatural look, not sure what`s going on. And the photo has some red glow over it. For me the SW is not fixable, still soft/blurry (visible at the nose, left wing). Also a slight high in frame impression and bad light. Interested in remarks from others. Good luck, Stefan

The AA looks like a phone photo, nice to have but lack general quality for A.net.
The Southwest is quite poor; obvious blur and subsequent quality.
