Wouldn't This Have Been A Bad Double?

Thu Mar 30, 2006 8:25 am

Hi.

I'm not really sure if I should bring it up but finally decided to do so as we all got pics for double rejected.

I came across these two pics

Both pics show EC-JDU and have been accepted on May 21, 2005. To me they look really the same and one pic shouldn't have made it in the database at mid 2005. A different thing would be the beginning but only 10 months ago the standards were against such doubles already. The photo-id is also only one digit away from the other.

What are your thoughts?

Thanks for "listening"

Georg

P.S.: I decided to post it here after I read this thread.

Maybe the same script error?

Since this isn't a high hit pic...no one actually realised it I guess at that time. But good catch though Georg.

It looks to me as if they are of two different landings, as it appears to be different times of day and different weather conditions (different runway even?).

I believe that, as they are the same plane but on different flights, the rule may not apply as strictly as if they were two pictures out of the same sequence.

I wish someone would clarify this rule for everyone here .
I too am confused about this rule i have some great shots of the same planes that i already have in the database.
But i don't upload them because i have the same reg with the same motive in the Database already.
I'm not a big fan of uploading the same motive of the same reg over and over but a clear cut explanation would be nice.

No, if you look closely you'll see a white line behind the plane. Definitely the same rwy. And I've been to LEJ last week. It's the same spot and rwy. If you know LEJ, you would know that it's almost impossible to have more than one Futura at one day.

Yes, I got once one pic rejected for double which showed the right side of the plane while the accepted showed the left side...

Nope. Would be better to mail the screeners about such issues. Not nice against the photographer to do it in public.

We are only saying that it is a double, not complaining about quality or whatever so I dont think the photog would have a problem with it, addiotional -even better: he gets extra exposure ...

anyway, would like to hear what screeners think, cause I ve found a lot more baddoubles ....

So I should've mailed this issue to screeners@airliners.net ?
