Good day fellow photographers,

I have been thinking a while now to start a topic like this.......just some provoking stuff for the new year.

I have been not as active in the forum as I used to be quite a few years ago, time is limited these days.

One thing I have noticed though, that ever since DSLR are practically available for every budget, the database gets flooded with images.

Seems like some of us, uploading every single shot they have taken.......soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo boring!

Fire away...................................................

I agree with your comments, especially this one:

>Seems like some of us, uploading every single shot they have taken<

Being a screener and viewing 100 shots uploaded by a single photographer on one upload session can be rather tedious........let's have a limit of 10 per day.......ooops.....what have I started now  Smile

Cheers

Gary

"let's have a limit of 10 per day"

I like that idea, although I'm sure somebody will soon suggest all the reasons why this is unfair (eg the 100 photos could still be uploaded over a ten-day period; some people only have irregular internet access so have to send batches; etc, etc.)

Sounds like a nice plan though!

A year or so back there was always the consensus, not to upload huge batches of pics. I remember harsh words regarding that. Nowadays the search page even lists the top uploaders in terms of uploaded pictures, encouraging photographers to upload every single picture to get on top of that list.

I for one would welcome a 10 or 20 pictures per upload batch limit, just as seen at Planepictures.net.

Cheers

Like Gerado says, the "top uploaders" and the "most popular" lists greatly encourage two practices: mass-uploading and batch-uploading. As long as one's pictures are of acceptable quality, if you have enough of them, you get on that list and then your "number of views" skyrockets.

Here's an idea:
Perhaps the two lists could be replaced with a single list. Simply list the highest AVERAGE views per photographer over the past 24 hours, 7 days, etc. That way it encourages photographers to make every one of their photos a good one to keep the average up. Somebody could be up there with one outstanding picture, or 100 outstanding pictures. You wouldn't make it onto this list if you had 100 unpopular pictures.

It's not perfect, but doesn't it remove the dependency on bulk-uploading to make the grade? It's also a bit different from the most-popular of the day because that just represents an individual photo, not the work of a photographer.

Just a little idea!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Hi I think I am one of those people you guys are talking about. I am fairly new and I was trying to find out what the site was looking for. I was getting a ton of rejections and felt I had a better chance of getting some accepted if I uploaded more. I have uploaded 40 shots at a time. I was not uploading every plane but the photos that I thought came out crisp and clear. I wouldn't upload more than one photo of a particular plane or one that I already had in the data base. I will in the future be much more selective on what I upload. I have a better Idea now on what is acceptable and what is not....The screeners do have a hard enough job without me making it harder...Stay Safe Artie

Nice topic!

I couldnt agree more, quality over quantity is the way to go.

I cant imagine having to screen 50+ images from one photographer who in that batch one after the other uploads the same plane , the same airline , the same angle but....... different registration - i would need counselling !

Maybe the whole Baddouble issue needs updating!

Upload limit would be unfair IMO. I usually only have time to do some slidescanning during the weekends and sometime I'd like to do 20 slides in one go. Hence I only upload in batches, though usually every shot is very different from the others.

I agree about limiting the uploads from the same day/spot.

About encouraging to upload large batches, yes the new layout on the search page might have some effect, but some people just seem to want to upload every shot they take, for whatever motive they have for that.

Change the meaning of baddouble? Might be a good idea.

Fireguy

there are always different angles to be had, im yet to find an airport that only limits you to one angle - but if there was, then upload the same angle but keep the same plane, airline etc.. a bit more varied in the way you queue them.

I try my hardest (sometimes need to try harder!) to make the 15 pics on my pages as varied as possible - it just makes them a little more pleasing to the eye!

I really don't understand what the folks who upload [say] 20 almost identical pictures of BA A319s on short final to LHR runway 27L are trying to achieve. But if it keeps those people happy, there's nothing in the rules to stop them doing it right now (as long as they don't do it day in, day out, because if they do we'll pretty quickly snag them badcommon).

We can talk all we like about self-screening, being selective, etc, but there'll always be the serial uploader. Sorry to say this, but a lot of what those people upload seems pretty much irrelevent to me - same-old, same-old, no imagination. To me, quality is the most important factor - does a picture contribute something new or different to the database. Those people who manage to achieve that are evident from the stats - visitors to the site are attracted to interesting and/or "different" pictures, high average hit rates indicate that a photographer is contributing interesting and different stuff, and serial uploaders don't get high hit rates.

Could you elaborate, Andy? You said that alot of what people upload is irrelevent, but quality is the most important factor... So if these serial uploaders are consistent, and the quality of the photos is good enough, whats the problem?

I try to get different things, or something new, but with that the quality decreases, and the rejections increase.. It forces me sometimes to not try something different and just get the boring side on shots of ordinary aircraft at my local airport, which I don't really want.

OK, this may sound like complaints but..
The safest shot to upload if you don't want to get a rejection is no doubt a standard sideshot. The only creativity this invites is the reason for rejection itself..
You could safely shoot and upload 250 sideshots of untitled Cessnas if you just get them sharp and well lit, which isn't too difficult IMHO.

I agree with Andy in the main - but would just point out the hit averages come with some variables.

Crashes, cockpits, concordes, and out-the-window wing shots do not always add quality to the database..(sometimes they do, sometimes they don't) but they're guaranteed big hits anyway.

There's no problem... Read what I said again - I didn't say that "alot of what people upload is irrelevent"... I was talking about people who upload countless pics from the same day, and I said that a lot of those sorts of pictures are irrelevent to me. That doesn't mean that under current rules they don't have a right to be in the database, it doesn't mean that I screen them any less fairly - I can seperate my own opinions from the rules I'm required to apply as a screener. It just means I'm not interested in them and wouldn't ever look at them except that sometimes I have to screen them. I also accept that some of my pictures may be irrelevent to others, but we weren't talking about my pictures - we were talking about serial uploaders.

I have the impression, that some of you forget, that A.N. is also a large database for aviation enthusiasts and –professionals. Each individual aircraft is welcome and if it is only one of a large fleet of the same type.
A very good side shot I like as much as an artistic picture. Both kind of photos have their place here.

Limiting the upload-possibilities would have a negative impact for those who are scanning and uploading older photos (like Frank Duarte, Johan Ljungdahl, me ...). Take that please in account…

I agree with Vasco in principle.

Maybe not 10 per day, maybe 20? Also to agree with the others, on the search page the "top uploaders" list should be removed because it encourages serial uploaders. I wouldn't mind seeing one list for "most viewed"

As far as uploading the same shot angle, well, from my experience: I shoot the plane coming at me, passing by me, going away from me. But i only have a 300mm lens on the D30, and from my vantage point in many cases the best picture will be the largest one which is the one in which the plane is closest to me i.e., the side shot. I do try to find a different angle that is good but i can't help it. It really depends on your shooting location & particular airport & your equipment as to how many different angles you can shoot successfully.

Vasco is right though, the age of the D-SLR has opened the floodgates for acceptable images so perhaps a limit is not so bad.
