Would Be Rejected Under Current Standards

Thu Oct 17, 2002 1:29 pm

So far I found this one and it would be rejected for 2 reasons.

I wished I had discovered A.net 3 years ago!

Well, if I had discovered A.net 3 years ago, I would have like thousands of photos in the database. Back then A.net would gladly accept any photo that had an aircraft in it. Now pictures of aircraft with for example ramp lice are undesirable.

That's true, but even if A.Net today had the same acceptance standards they did some 3 years back, would you really want to bog down the database with mediocre pics ? I have quite a few medicore and poor quality pics in the db sent in during A.Net's early days that I am thinking about re-scanning or removing altogether.

So the site has developed, matured and evolved. If they took crap photos I too would have thousands that qualified!!! By setting high standards it forces you to shoot better photos. If someone wants to show off crap photos then they should start their own website and post them there.  Smile

the quality of that photo, in processing terms, is low, but the shot is pretty interesting.

The wide-open uncluttered ramp is quite odd, don't you think? Plus a single person wearing what looks like a religious robe or something. Not to mention a Tu-154.

I like it.

What did a decent scanner or a decent digicam cost 3 years ago, now compare those prices with today's prices.

i was thinking about having some of my old photos deleted....but then i think...why not just leave them on here? it's part of the site now, since i submitted them long ago doesn't mean they need to be removed just because my photos now are somewhat better....hehe

i think it shows the history and the beginnings of this site to have these old photos on here...it just shows how far the site has come since it was started and when they took pretty much any photo

so i think i'll leave my shots on the database....for a little while at least  Wink/being sarcastic

Yes Andy, but would you be proud of you large amount of crappy photos?  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

True, the image is of poor quality, but it should definitely stay on - an Aeroflot Tu-154 at Windhoek - yes! I don't know what other Windhoek shots there are, but as Royal said, the empty apron and the very "non-Seattle" airport personnel make this a bit different - gives it an atmosphere.

I think there a number of less interesting old shots that don't really to deserve inclusion now - you know the ones - half obscured Delta or United 737's taken through glass, of which a much better picture has since been uploaded.
However, the decision to delete any of these is really up to who put them on in the first place and I don't have too much of a problem with that.

Rez, I found it by accident when I was browsing through Aeroflot pics.
