Photo Was Lost After Upload - Then Rejected!

Sun Oct 06, 2002 3:46 pm

After the system error thingy that lost 30 photos after they where accepted I re-uploaded a photo of g-viia and also told everyone by posting the info in the thread about the system thingy

then it gets rejected

The following photos were rejected:
(Please read more below)

- viia.jpg (British Airways Boeing 777-200)

The photos were of low esthetic qualities - bad angle, included
window reflections (for shots taken through glass such as terminal windows),
pictured just a part of an aircraft (with no motivation, like a special
sticker, damage etc., for doing so), out of focus, distracting or
obstructing objects in the foreground or similar (this is especially true
for gate shots which are very difficult to get accepted due to their common
nature and the large amount of ancilliary equipment which usually surrounds
the aircraft) or did not picture an aircraft or anything sufficiently
related to aviation at all. Finally, you might read this because your camera
displays the date in the lower right corner of the image. If so, please
disable that feature in the future.




Just asking whether or not to bother uploading again? it was accepted then rejected???

Many thanks

LGW

Ben:
It might help if you add the info to the picture itself. We cant have every thread in mind  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Ben, post the link to the pic, so we can take a look.

I also have some questionable float plane rejections, think they should have made it.

Ben,

As Peter has already said we cannot remember every picture in every topic when these sorts of things happen. You chose to ignore the advice posted at the time, which was to mention the loss in the comments associated with the photo, so that's in part down to how you got to the situation you are now with this picture.

You are wasting time posting this here in any case - there is nothing in this forum that can help you with this specific problem. If you fundamentally disagree with ANY rejection (as opposed to wanting to seek opinions on how to improve a picture, which you are clearly not doing here), then there is a clear mechanism - appeal.

It's not a questionable rejection because it has already been accepted!

How is that? I am asking whether or not to re-upload I have not said I agree/disagree with any rejections, including this one so it i worth asking because this problem affected a few foum members and I know that most of the screeners do read the boards.

Well, I just had a look at the post by Johan about this matter and no-one in the whole thread including screners say to add comments with the uplaod, I read people say re-upload (Peter) and just put the file name in the post (Wietse) so I did all that I was told to, in the post so to say I chose to ignore information is harsh and untrue.

I am not going to worry about this as after all its only one photo and not a 'super' shot anyway its just the situation I am commenting on

Peter, sorry if I sounded like you should have known about this fact, I didnt.

I was just after a bit of advise and I do understand that you screen a huge number of photos and do have a life!

I will upload soon and many thanks for your responses Peter

Extracted from the very thread concerned... "Upload the pics again, mention that they were previously accepted, and we MAY (not guaranteed, MAY, because circumstances have changed since then and we may have better pictures in the database now) accept them again"

LGW said: It's not a questionable rejection because it has already been accepted!

It may not have been a questionable rejection when it was first accepted but it may be now. There are many pictures already in the database which if uploaded now would not be accepted. Things move on.

LGW said: after all its only one photo and not a 'super' shot anyway its just the situation I am commenting on

Exactly. If its not a super shot, why bother raising this topic??? Oh I know why - to stir up the "accepted and then rejected" debate again!

Enough with the critism! It was 1 shot of which a.net lost not me and I asked what I should do on the matter!

I know about standards and know how hard the screeners work etc so there is no need to get so animated!

Even though this shot should already be in the db if it where not lost by the software upagrade I thinka fter all this I shall forget this image as it seems to cause more trouble than its worth and move on!

Its only a photo!!!!

I gotta side with LGW on this. For real, people need to take responsibility for their mistakes (not pointing fingers).

Im not stiring the acceptance/rejections debate again...why would i?

also I have to say doesnt matter about the shot being super or not i said its not super, doesnt mean its c**p - out of principal as this happened about 2 weeks ago and standards cant have changed too much I must say i think morally they photos should be accepted as they already have been!

i am raising the topic because it was accepted through the HQ queue without warnings if it had been accepted with warnings then i may not bother but seeing as it got in last time i thought id re-upload as all other shots that where lost appear to have been accepted again

andy, who said that in the post? i remember readig that but have looked at http://www.airliners.net/discussions/aviation_photography/read.main/64061/ a few times over and cant see that post (maybe im just blind!)


cheers

Actually LGW, I had an interesting air shot, but didn't make it, I will have to scan the alternative.

LGW,

Before starting this thread, did you eMail the screeners directly about this issue? After all, that's the first thing you should have done.
