Hi Alvaro,

If you cannot move yourself to another spotting point, then you should / could use the clone stamp tool in order to remove the foreground clutter. There is an aviation editing video about this at:

Best regards!

I really do not get this rejection reason. I mean, airports have fences after all!

Is it actually "background" (as the topic title reads) or "foreground" clutter that is the actual rejection reason?

In case of "foreground", imho it is somewhat strange in this case, since the fences and other foreground stuff do not obstruct any part of the aircraft on any of the three pictures, nor are the fences etc. such a strong distraction from the central subject of the pictures. Technically, "cloning out" the fences here might work, imho, except probably the picture with the Dreamliner, but there is a question of how far we may go in visually changing the picture while not turning it into "aviation graphics". This is somewhat up to everyone of us to decide for him/herself, after all.
