Possible Double Rejection

Mon Jun 04, 2007 6:01 pm

I'm studying the rejection reasons here, and found that I might get a double rejection for these 2 as Anet considers them to be the same, but in an old topic I found it could be acceptable if it was more than 45 degree difference and also different focal lenghts, like mine. If this is considered a double, which is a goner and which is a keeper, or are both keepers??

Yes, these two are considered as double and it's up to you to upload the one you like best. The second one has some contrast and softness issues though.

Quoting JohnKrist (Thread starter):

Could you give a link to that topic?

IL76, thanks for your fast reply, the 45 degree reference is last reply in this topic: Double Rejection...(?!) (by Mongorat Aug 13 2006 in Aviation Photography)

Reading it again I might have misunderstood the focal lenth comment.

Taken from http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/reasons.php

DOUBLE
You already have photos of this aircraft in the Airliners.net database that are the same as, or very similar to these photo(s).

In order to receive this rejection, the other (similar) photos in the database must also have been taken by you, at the same day and at the same airport. Please do not upload multiple sequential shots of an aircraft during landing, taxiing or take-off, taken only a few seconds apart. Even though these photos may appear to be from different angles, we consider them similar. Please select the best shot from the sequence and upload only that one. One shot taken during landing, and another during take-off will generally NOT be considered a DOUBLE error.

In certain cases you can also get this rejection if there are photos in the database that are nearly identical to the one(s) rejected here, but taken on another date by you. Examples of this are photos of stored or preserved aircraft that have not moved since you took the other photos.

For window views we accept 2 shots per flight and side of aircraft when they show considerable different motives. So in other words the maximum number of accepted window views of the same registration on the same flight all taken by you would be 4.

Note: This rejection might also occur if you have similar photos in the upload queue that are still awaiting final screening.

IL76, that was the text that brought up my question in the first place, combined with the topic I linked to. But I will remove the second image as my already poor ratio can't take any more abuse, too bad cause I really like the overall feeling in that pic  Smile

Are these doubles? I'm a bit confused about the rules if close-ups are involved. Sorry if the situation is similar to Johnny's, but I can't see his second pic any more.

Thanks,

That's a very nice shot. I'd take it of the two, if you can't upload both.

Peter, that was exactly the same issue as i had, as I was not aware of those kind of shots were considered doubles. And for the clearness of this thread I'll add a small version of the pic I removed from the queue.

I wonder that too, ok I can understand that they want to keeo similar images to a minimum, but these are hardly similar. Not even this one taken at the same time as my 2 above is really similar:

FWIW, its a great shot.

I agree completely. There needs to be a bit more common sense placed in the rule. For example, a photographer can upload 30 shots of WN aircraft landing at PHX on the same day, same side, same angle and all of which are pretty much the same shot just different reg yet someone such as yourself can catch a relatively obscure plane and try to upload two completely different shots (which happen to be the same side of the aircraft) and get a rejection for it.

In my eyes, that does not follow the common sense of why the rule is in place.

Well, it was rejected again, for motive  Sad

He wants me to crop out the engine, meaning the hump will be partly cropped out, and too much dead space to the right.
I think this pic will loose some of what I like about it, and I am not sure I want to. Should I appeal, or should I just keep it for my own pleasure as I personally think cropping it will ruin my shot?

For the double clarification you might wanna check out this link: http://planecatcher.com/IGRR/Double.htm

If justified screeners sometimes make exceptions to that rule and in your case, Carl, you might just wanna give it a try as though the sequence, as explained in the guide, is the same it's clearly 2 different motives and in addition they're both very nice to look at.

Quoting JohnKrist (Reply 13):

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...o.jpg

http://planecatcher.com/IGRR/Motive.htm

John, the motive rejection clearly comes from the awkward crop on the engine but instead of cropping it completely out why not include it as a whole; that would eliminate the motive rejection just as well. In addition to that you might wanna crop in closer on the top, right side and bottom as there's no need in this shot to show as much empty sky and grass. You should aim for a 3:2 ratio when framing your pictures.
Also a little more sharpening would do your picture some good.

In my experience, you would get a double rejection for those.

I had this shot accepted:

and this one rejected for double. I was disappointed as I considered the subject rare and the motive sufficiently different. I appealed, but was also rejected for double. Oh well.

Failed on appeal. I guess the screeners disagree with both yours and my interpretation as that was also the reason I gave on appeal.

Quoting Scbriml (Reply 15):

Indeed. Yet for the reasons Thierry mentioned above, both yours and my shots should not have been rejected for a clear change in motive. This comes down to the screeners interpretation of the rule and I was a little annoyed that they didn't consider my appeal further.

Thierry, thanks for your input and advice.
I might have agreed with you if it was common practise to reject photos because of that, but there are other photos with partly cropped out engines added all the time, even today. Below are some other very nice pictures that has been added today with parts of engines missing:

And I do like these pics, I am pointing on screener inconsistency not bad photos. But if it is a rule it is a rule and should not depend on which screener you get as it then is a personal oppinion rather than a rule.

And if I include the entire engine,which I can't since It's shot with my 50mm prime and I was that close to the beast, there would be even more grass and sky to retain the 3:2 ratio.

This is a very clear case Steve; same aircraft, same reg, same position; the only thing that is different is that the first one is a close-up and the second one a wide angle shot; in contrary for instance Carl's 2 shots vary much more in angle and sequence as the accepted shot is of the aircraft taxiing while on the second one it is parked. Too bad though that you uploaded the close-up earlier as I find the wide-angle shot much more appealing.

It's a little more complex than that John. Let me give you another example that very much ressembles yours:

Photo © Thierry Deutsch


As on your photo, it's a close-up of a by-taxiiing B747 on which the engine has been partly cut off. However when looking at the Korean, the eye is immediately directed onto the fuselage whereas due to the lack of eye attracting details on your TNT photo the eye is looking for something it can "hold on to" and thus wanders around and sees the unesthetically cropped engine. And in addition to that the wide overall crop with the much empty space around the aircraft doesn't help your case.
You gotta keep in mind that motive rejections are more a matter of esthetics, as understood by A.net, rather than of concrete formulas to which you may stick.

I did a quick re-crop and re-sharpening of your photo; you might wanna try something like that:
Big version: Width: 902 Height: 606 File size: 244kb

or if that doesn't work for you how about even closer crops like the following:

If you want help with the edit of the original, drop me a line, I'll gladly have a go at it.

Thierry, your crop is acceptable in my eyes as it still retains what I like in that picture. I'll try and re-edit and see what I can do.
Thanks for your kind offer, but if I don't do it myself myself I will never learn  Wink

When it comes to the closer crop they are not really my cup of tea, but the MK one is nice.
Maybe I should try and touch up the shot I posted earlier, from behind? That one will be on the cover of a mag in september, maybe will be good enough for Anet too...

Thierry's crop looks good, I think it might even live with more cropping from the engine.
