Have to be honest and say I don't think these shots work.

In particular the second shot, I understand you're trying to concentrate on the cockpit but the composition is completely off, the eye is drawn to the cut off rotor hub, tail rotor, nose wheel and decoy dispenser.

That second shot would have been great if the rules of thirds had been followed placing the cockpit on the left hand third line and backing off the crop a little as to not cut off the wheel. Especially as a good chunk of the shots is hidden by the over-obtrusive banner at the base.

Just a few bit of constructive criticism of a nice subject :-)

Thanks for being so honest. Sometimes it good to get some criticism so no offence taken and all notes taken for future reference. I guess everyone has there own opinion and i respect that.
