@wki, Ok, but I have LED and it's really comfort, really much more comfortable than LCD and CRT.

so hit F10 again... it is a toggle ;)

eg:
F10 to turn off the menu
F3 to take the snapshot
F10 to turn the menu back on

once you know the keys you generally don't need the menu... the keys are described in the menu's help section...

If you need it, use it, if not, keep it until you need, 2 on 757-200 is on other rendering, which is Rembrandt.

Generally what is perceived as aesthetically pleasant differs a lot between people, but there's a few constants - having a menu or pop-up messages on the screenshot is equivalent to a photographer getting his fingers all the time into the image - nearly universally not really good.

I'm not sure what your purpose in making these screenshots is - it seems to be so that the most life-like screenshots are regarded best in competitions - if that is your aim, I'd suggest in addition e.g. getting rid of the 2d clouds high above which completely spoil the lighting of the scene (being ghostly white) and play a bit with weather options.

(If your aim is not to produce screenshots which others may find pleasant, please disregard anything I wrote).

Where to get 3D clouds for FG then? I have 2018.2.2.

Enable them in the View > Rendering menu. Alternatively, enable Advanced Weather in Environment > Weather menu. It is probably best not to use both together.

Also, if you want better performance (I noticed your frame rates a bit lower in the last Rembrandt shots), Atmospheric Light Scattering is far more performance friendly (I saw you had it enabled in the previous screenshots with more than double the frame rate?) ;)

@lego, I play in multiplayer, so I'd use View then Rendering menu.
