1 Jet, two different Focal Lengths and I could not remove the cones, that would be a big no no

These are all very sharp...well done. I personally like 1 better than 2, but it would be nice to see the whole plane in the picture. Also, if it were me, I might clone out the orange cones in PP. #3 and #4 are sharp, but just not that interesting to me.

Also, I am by no means a professional, so take my comments with a grain of salt.

Good shots, with maybe a bit too much contrast.

Why? It's your image?

I read that as he couldn't physically remove the cones to take the picture. I'd clone them out though now.

Too much contrast in all the images? As for the cones, I would have got into trouble if I removes them. Thanks for your input...............

I haven't really learned how to clone yet, still experimenting to get it right, thanks for your input.........

There was a lot of clutter just to the Port side of the Aircraft so I had to cut a portion of the Wing and Horizontal Stab.

Thanks for your input...............

Too much contrast or clarity slider. The cones could be easily cloned out. Don't really like the compositions and they aren't terribly interesting.

Looks like you used Lightroom 5 for these. In your brush section grab the Clone Heal brush. Set it to Heal, 100% opacity, brush over the cone and you are done.

I'm 90% sure the program will get it perfect for you right off. If it doesn't you can click on the space it used as "good" and drag it to a better location.

Yeah, I have 5.6, there is a area I'll have to clone in the yellow line on top of the Asphalt, and thanks for your help...............

Try it. I would expect LR to recognize the yellow line and handle it automatically. If not it's easy to drag the good part to include the yellow line.

In Lightroom you can also clone it in pieces.. top half, bottom half, etc; that is good when it you can't find a good matching area due to the size. Don't forget the cone shadow.

There's an element of black magic with this stuff. Sometimes I get better results using the old clone tool at 5% & sneaking up on the result I want.
For something like the cone with a hard edge, you'll probably get some color bleed at the edge. Try selecting it, & then cloning it out.

Or maybe keep it as shot as that is the reality of the situation? We didn't pretty much have that option in the film days. Maybe next time, I'll remove objects that should not be there...............

Here's another shot, David VS Goliath ...............

The more I think about this one, should have I lined up directly behind the Cessna 172?...............
