Maximum Number Of Pictures Of A Specific Aircraft

Fri Mar 31, 2006 5:30 am

Just wondering if there is an absolute limit to the number of pictures of a specific aircraft that would be accepted from a single Photog?

I'm aware of the common and quality rules as numbers in the DB rise (I've had plenty of rejects for those), but exceptional pictures will hopefully always make it on.

So how many do you have accepted of a single aircraft?

I've 19 of this one out of 42 of the DB... highfive

But I'm not gonna tell how many rejects..  blush

Hi John,

I've got some baddouble rejections for uploading two shots of rare Indonesian airliners on rare airfields.

You've got nineteen shots accepted of this Spit - three shot on October 2, two on July 16, three on July 3, and so on. I've no problems with that as they are nice photos, but you really shouldn't be suprised to get rejections.

I've had one common rejection so far: a side-on of a Virgin B744.

There's only one a/c that I have more than 2 pics of in the d/b, that's a Cessna 172. The scandalous thing is, they were all taken the same day! However, one is me standing on the ground while the plane is landing, the other two are window shots that are IMHO different enough to waive the baddouble rule...

Oh, just remembered... I had two baddouble rejections:

I uploaded three pics of a crashed B1900 (one from either side, one from the front) - two got accepted - That was the first time I noticed the baddouble rule.

And I uploaded two of this Aztec, one front one side, only one was accepted:

And that's when I re-read the details of the rule...

Sorry, it seems I misread John's post - he isn't being surprised or complaining.

There are three airframes of which I have three shots on. In one of these cases, two shots were taken on the same day. It's not a take-off and a landing shot, so I guess I did qualify for baddouble.

Basically I think he want's to know whats the maximum amount of shots that anet will accept of one particular aircraft, taken by one single person.

I think that's right?

That correct , I've just about run out of angles for that Spit....
I tried a rear in flight pic that was rejected, but I just had to try..

There won't be any more until 2007 now, as G-AWII is having a new engine fitted along with a major overhall.

Maybe with a new differant engine, I could appeal any doubles next year..

No double in my eyes.

Check out
Wouldn't This Have Been A Bad Double? (by Jorge1812 Mar 30 2006 in Aviation Photography)

and
Bad Double? (by Rotate Mar 29 2006 in Aviation Photography)

also. I'm really confused about the whole thing. Once got a pic of one side of an a/c accepted while the other side was rejected for double....

Some great examples of doing very different things with the same aircraft. Don't forget also that the aircraft changed scheme, and that some rules have changed since acceptance (eg. the two "September 7, 2002" shots would be baddouble these days).

My point was the similarity of the pictures, look at the clouds, and the pole in front, it is obvious that both pictures were taken at the same time. In fact, isn't the left one badcentre?  Wink

Sorry John, it's Bad Centre and my wife wants to know why people are allowed to put her name on their aircraft!
Seriously, great pictures, beats me with my measly two of this one.
What about a cockpit shot to complete the set?
Or join the in crowd and try the artistic direction along these lines

Hi Malcolm,

I purposely cropped this one with the wings not equal to the borders, I imagined a line through the centre of the fuselage to centre the aircraft....honest..  bitelip 

Cockpit and artsy shots coming, I've already had a few accepted like these,

And as I've just discovered that as a Photo Section Member at Old Warden, I'm allowed airside before the display, I might well soon be seen crawling around underneath those parked on the flightline!
