I have a question, is there any standard set on window views photos. I 've seen some recent additions that appear to be taken from the same flight (correct me if I'm wrong). Nothing wrong with them as they are all good quality and the weather in Hong Kong was great. I am just wondering whether mulitple window views shots from same flight can be accepted and accomdated on A.net. Could screener help me out? I have a few nice ones on a L1011 recently enroute BKK to KUL with some nice view of airport terminal, city overfly etc....just to see what is the agreed standard before uploading and getting them rejected.

I personally have more wingview shots in my collection then standard photos as i don't go-to the airport very often, i tend to fly more, i however love window views they provide another perspective of the world but of course from the place we all love best- the air!

Had all of those been in the same upload batch, would all six have been accepted? They're all very nice shots but A.net has a double rule. Were each of the photos considered of enough interest to accept them all?

The agreed standard is that the individual views must be considered on their own merits.
In Matt's examples, the two views look rather similar - the predominant motivation for both shots is the wing in the foreground. Thus the motivation for both shots is the same, and only one is acceptable.
In the images linked from the first post, the primary motivation seems to be the view on the ground, in the context of being a view from the aircraft (nicely framed with the aircraft wing to give context). That means each view can be considered on its own merits, and hence more than one may be considered acceptable.
Other acceptable multiple-images-per-flight scenarios may include a view from each side of the fuselage, a rich sunset shot, a clear airport overview, etc.
The key here is this: Strive to create a photographic "moment" with each shot - present people with a window on the world which is engaging and educational. Try to avoid the mindset where the rationale for an upload is simply to get as many shots as possible into the database.
