I see much foreground clutter AND background clutter (trucks and fences)

All those flags on the underside are underexposed.

The whole thing needs to be sharpened and cleaned up dust spots.

And in the realm of the PUREST of opinions (not based on any fact at all)...the S-duct is too severe and too fat. The one on the 727 is much more appealing.

REJECT!

Here is a much better photo.

It contains not one but TWO L-1011s.

The livery is much better.

Steve Martin is the foreground clutter.

And Flyover International Airport (when it WAS an International Airport) is pictured throughout!

PS, note the 727 with the sexier S-duct.

QUIT TRYING TO FORCE ME TO BE SERIOUS AS OPPOSED TO SARCASTIC COMMENTS!

Ya know, I kind of like it. I kind of like ALL airplane pictures. I liked the first one of the shiny new 1011 with trucks stuck into the wings...Loved to watch them fly...rode several...did think the S-duct just sort of looked fat and nasty.

Would the dark picture make it through cool screeners (who liked airplanes and had a shred of artistic appreciation)...not_sure, Would mine make it into "Stevemartinframedbyaviationstuffphotos.net ...probably not. It's pretty nasty!

Not to mention the crappy cropping/centering. But the two missing pixels from the wing really kill the picture, instant reject for "Cut-off/Part of aircraft missing" :x .

On the plus side, I see no sign of meteorite clutter.
