My apologies to any readers who are clear in their own minds about this topic and are fed up reading more questions about it. But this issue of bad doubles continues to trouble me, and in the spirit of open communication I would like to raise this question again. I realise I may appear overly worried about this issue, but I think it is because in my early days of uploading I had a photo that I really liked rejected for bad double and was told (in a friendly way) that I was nearly banned. Ever since I have been a bit 'nervy' about this.

I have decided to upload the following after seeing a few examples in recent Manchester uploads of the same photographer uploading 2 photos of the same aircraft on the same day (with somewhat different angles):

I have another photo in the database of this aircraft, taken not long before the one linked above. My subjective thinking is that the view is significantly different:

Your views please on whether this is an acceptable upload or one that may cause me difficulties with this double rule. Basically my question is whether or not you agree with me that this is a significantly different view.

Thanks for your input and clarification.

Paul

There really isn't much visible on the plane behind.


Heia Norge!

Same Airline , Same Reg and Similar Angle. Even though its a different angle , the fact that its a similar angle , and same reg , airline and even light can make this one a baddouble. If you had , lets say , taken a similar pic of a VS , BA , SA etc etc 747 it would have a better chance.

Just my two cents worth...  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Sorry for being off-topic but is it possible to get to that spot without a car? I'll be in Manchester in two weeks and I'm looking for some photo possibilities.

Cheers

Well considering there are 9 photo's including yours in the data base from that day, I would have to say badcommon, both photo's are very good and not lacking any quality. With 95 photo's already in the databaseof that aircraft, I am pretty sure you will have to avoid a similar photo than one that you already have in the data base. I would suggest picking your favorite photo and uploading that one? If you had the aircraft landing, and then departing... you might be able to get two from the same day....

I hope that helps,

Grant

I agree with the badcommon arguement.

Thanks so far everyone - these comments are helpful.

I shall leave the photo where it is for further comments before, if necessary, getting rid of it from the queue. But I'm still very keen to hear the views of others. I think you have a very valid point though, Grant.

Jan - this spot is not far from the footpaths around Styal Country Park. I would imagine that it is difficult to get to without a car, although there is a hotel near this viewpoint, which may be accessible via other means. The hotel is The Manchester Airport Moat House (I think it's called) on the main road that runs from Junction 6 of the M56 motorway towards Wilmslow (Altrincham Road). Hope this helps.

Thanks Paul. I think I'll just stay at the car park or take the bus to the AVP. Do you know if the light is any good there from 10:00 to 14:00?

Sorry Jan - the light where? If you mean near that hotel then that is a perfect time (though that runway closes from 12 'till 3pm). The sun - if it is out - will be right behind you at that time. Problem with the Viewing Park is that it will be facing you and shots can end up rather backlit.
