Wed Mar 01, 2006 9:05 pm

Just out of interest, did the double rule change?
As far as i can see it it is:

.
For cabin views we allow 2 shots per registration, date and photographer, when they show considerable different motives. The same applies for cockpit views.

Are there any changes not yet announced?

Just for interest and not for complaining for me they look all very similar.

An approach to BKK

An inflight Thailand

A Ramp BKK

An approach to KLL

Don't see a real issue here!!

Oh OK the pedants may point out 4 shots same A/C, same date but 4 very different motives.

OK .. perhaps not absolutely in the spirit of the guidelines but has been thrashed out before!
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Can we leave pics of photos already in the database out of this thread please?
No good style.
This was intended as a simple question from me not as fingerpointing to anyone.
Thanks

That's the thing Chris and Georg refer too I guess.
Still, nice approach shot.

Why the hell should we ever reject an amazing shot? The rules are there to serve us not the other way around. A very fundamental rule for Airliners.net that stands above everything else (and seems very easy to forget for some) is that rare / old / artistic / otherwise fantastic photos have lower rejection standards.

If that shot from Sam Chui had been a normal cockpit view when the aircraft was on the ground and without the great angles, yes - one or more would probably have been rejected for being double.

Enough said.
