Default A couple more for Flickr

I don't think these are fixable.

This one, there's just not enough light on the nose to make it retrievable w/o lots of scanner noise showing up.

This one is pretty much full frame. There aren't really any good cropping options with getting a weird long and skinny aspect ratio.

It's the craziest bicentennial scheme you'll ever see. (there are no picture of this on RP)

Accidentally tilt the camera up too high when shooting that?

Neat engine, probably not gonna 'fly' on rp.net but found it interesting they have the backwards flag which I assume makes the long hood the 'front' of that engine and the flag would be displayed normally on the other side so that when moving forward the flag is always advancing. Interesting engine shot...

Thanks for showing us!

It may or may not make it on RP (it would be the first for this RR!) but any of those 'weird' options is going to be less weird than this!

First shot - ouch! That image needed a flash to balance the bright light in the foreground. I doubt there's enough detail exposed to bring out in processing via shadows and highlights or even levels /curves.

If there is some historical significance or extreme rarity in the subject - that would be the angle for an appeal.

Second shot - why not go "skinny"? Chop the top (extra sky) and resubmit. After all, if you submitted to a magazine, that is likely how it would be published. Chop a little at a time until it gets in. No need to got to extremes. Seems RP has loosed up it's tolerance for more panoramic like aspect ratios.
