The baddouble rule is a bit ambiguous. I think this is a baddouble because they were shot seconds apart and the only real difference in focal length. If he shot the plane from behind departing, it probably would not be bad double. Art Brett's MIA sequences cleared that up...

im not too fussed about "how" shot was taken Sam. Its the fact they are almost in sequence, i mean, thats gotta be within say what, 5 seconds apart from each other off rwy25? I think Mia777 put across what i was trying to say a bit better

Oh back to the topic, ummmm no baddouble was detected by me. No rules say you can't upload 2 pic taken within 5 seconds. Both shots were compeltely different, one horizontal and one vertical, one showing all wings and one shot only the body, great composition!

The baddouble rule I believe applies when (for example) one snaps a dozen shots of the same aircraft in a sequence, or in the case described above if the photographer has shot it at rotation and then again at rotation + 1 second, +2 seconds, +3 seconds etc.
In this instance Darren may well have done that and many more besides but he has elected to submit the rotation shot (short-ish focal length, full width of the wings, landscape format) and a close-up of the nose gear retracting (longer focal length, portrait crop, concentrating on the nose and fuz only) resulting in two quite different images. So, IMHO this doesn't warrant a Baddouble rejection. Then again I'm not a screener so what do I know!
Hope that helps!
