Rejection For Distance And Category

Sun Jul 29, 2007 10:29 am

Should I appeal?

http://www.airliners.net/procphotos/...filename=20070728_gayoysan1red.jpg

The reason for not cropping it so close was to show off the environment of the Falkland Islands. It's not something you see much of on here...

The autocomplete brought up helicopter and I added seaplane as it lands and operates on water, as per the info on the pop-up screen.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hmmmm, I rejected it, but for distance and compression, not category? Interesting.

Anyways, If you look around the fuse windows, and the titles, they are lots of compression artifacts visible. If not showing the compression I would have not rejected it for distance, but we are supposed to check all rejection reasons.

It is a great shot, hopefully you can fix and reupload (and Seaplane is correct).

Seaplane? It is an amphibious helicopter.

A seaplane is a fixed-wing aircraft with floats, where the fuselage does not sit in the water; a flying boat is a fixed wing aircraft that uses the fuselage (and usually wingtip floats) as a flotation structure.

Isn't that what the word floatplane is for?

And yes, a.net insists amphibious helicopters are seaplanes/flying boats, like it or not.

Hi all

Oooh, would like to see it in the database.

Used to be an Aberdeen based aircraft. A long way from the north east of Scotland now  Smile

According to the e-mail sent to me, and my "Rejected photos" part of my photo admin page, it was "Reject reason: category distance". There is nothing saying it was rejected for compression... Why has that reason not turned up in the rejection e-mail or on here? Was it finger faff, or is there a computer glitch?

People have been confused by some rejection reasons on here- is there something in the computer system that is showing rejections for the wrong reasons???

Here's a fact for you- Stanley, the capital of the Falkland Islands, is as far south of the equator as Stamford in England is North of the equator.. I live near Stamford, but am originally from near Aberdeen- small world of connections to this helicopter then!

As it was not rejected for compression (as neither the e-mail, nor my rejection page states that as a reason), can I therefore appeal? I'll not use Double Jeopardy in court- honest!!

The photo was rejected correctly, IMO, regardless of the wrong category. Maybe the Head Screeners will feel different, but it would make more sense to rework it, wouldn't it?

I wan't being obstinate- just raising a concern and question after reading on the e-mail and rejection page that it was rejected for category when it was auto-complete and correct. Never mind, I'll see what I can do with it and try again- hopefully second time lucky...

Thanks,

I've uploaded this one instead, same aircraft, 60 seconds later:

http://www.airliners.net/addphotos/big/ready/050707056g.jpg

Is it any better?

One quick point to question- the jaggies on the leading edge of the engine intake covers were not on the original I uploaded. What has happened during uploading to cause them? Is whatever it is leading to my rejections? Please help!!!

WOW! Thanks screeners! From uploading the replacement to having it accepted was only 15 minutes. It shows the power of the forums and the astute monitoring from the screeners. I am so glad that I can share these photos with you all.

Could someone still explain to me why the jaggies turned up even though they were not on the uploaded file- does uploading compress further?

Hi

You may want to amend your comments.

A 'cut and paste' from another uploaded image does not apply here as the hummingbird logo is not applied to this aircraft  Wink

Nope, just lots of penguins! The Vulcans only come out of hibernation in the warmer months- as there are no warm months, they are very difficult to spot...
