Nearly Identical Photos On A.NET

In my course of daily perusing the a.net database, I found two photos that were taken at virtually the same instant and from the same perspective. I have seen those photos taken at SFO at the same time from two different perspectives, but these photos are taken from the same spot. I don't really have a question, but just wanted to point this out. I personally think that the one on the left is better.

The second photo was taken a few seconds later, you'll notice the main gear doors have begun to retract. Otherwise it looks like the photographers were right next to each other... though I couldn't tell you which one was on the left and which one was on the right.

Nothing new happens all the time. The database is loaded with things like this, always interesting to see the processing outcome.

I think you have it reversed. The photo on the right (taken by Philippe Ballerstedt) was taken first. Notice that the inboard main landing gear door have just started to cycle open. In the photo on the left (taken by Omar Alex Saffe) the inboard door has completely opened and the gear has just started to retract.

I guess my reaction to this is that I have noticed many examples of 'duplicates'. Take all the 777's and 747's shot at AMS from the same spotting position day after day. Not withstanding the fact that they are all great quality, how many do you need in the database? Compare that to countless rejections for non-technical reasons and there is an argument to promote variety assuming the shot meets the technical criteria.

However, that's off-topic. Duplicates are quite common. I too take interest in the processing differences.

I'm more interested in photography differences.

I would like to politely challenge people (especially at AMS, MAN, and SXM) to shoot something unusual. Something we haven't already seen a jillion times. Any takers?

There are only so many locations and ways to shoot an aircraft in and out of an airport!

I would be glad to go out and try something different and quite often do, so if you have any suggestions please share them with us.

For AMS, I think most viewing options where you can photograph with 'normal' camera gear (lenses up to 400mm) have been covered (name me something you'd like to see, I'll tell you if it's possible or not). With air-side access the possibilities grow a bit, most of us have no such privilege. Plus, things that some people seem to forget: AMS is very high on the wishlist of any spotter. People complain about 'yet another KLM 747' on A.net, but when they come visit AMS, what do they do?! Shoot every single KLM 747 and upload it. Call it a victim of its own success. Same goes for MAN and SXM.

I don't know, honestly. My challenge isn't to say there's no merit in the shots that are being taken now, just I want to see something cool and different!  Smile I will still look and stare at a photo that is technically well done, and aesthetically pleasing, but I also want to see a little more creativity. What can *you* do with the same raw materials as the next guy?

I mean when I go to DCA, I am usually not the only spotter there if it's a sunny day. So, I tend to go when the weather's not so hot, and see if I can grab something unusual. I hardly ever just stand at Gravelly Point. Although, I do admit to uploading plenty of those "standard" shots too, so please don't take this as me being overly critical.

We don't, no worries...  Smile It's just that at these popular airports, most things have been done/tried already. The lack of a nice background scenery also give you fewer options. I'd love to have snowy mountains in the background, shoot air-to-air, 100ft from the runway with a wide angle or see a 747 take off from a 6000ft runway, but no can do here. We'll have to try other airports for that.  Smile

Thats one thing i dont understand how shots like this get on A.net when you can clearly see faces and some very attractive females in bikini's which isnt a bad thing but rule state(as from Thierry's guide) People or faces unless Pilots or famous people arent accepted but day after day these shots appear on a.net.

Then keep trying! Not trying certainly won't make it.  Wink

I have two shots at DCA sitting in Johan's queue right now probably because I pushed the envelope. If they don't make it, I'll still have the satisfaction of having what I think is a pretty neat shot. Making a.net would be nice, but not necessary.

Same can be said of DCA! I didn't say it was going to be easy, that's why it's a challenge.  Wink I refuse to believe that the photographers here aren't itching to let their creative juices fly at these places.

The only thing that makes sense here is Joe Pries's 747 taken at HNL in 1999.

Other photos don't make sense as they were all taken by different photographers.

As for the J.41 shot, A6-ESK...

It's no suprise to me that the shot taken by Nik is so similar to that taken by myself.....I removed the D200 from my tripod and Nik then placed his D70 onto it and fired away without even moving the tripod!!
