Will This Result In A Double Reject?

Wed Dec 12, 2007 8:36 am

Hi there,

I had put this one in the queue, I liked the light conditions (although backlit), but I only realised that I had a similar one (same serial, same day) already in the database:

I know both shots are showing the helicopter from roughly the same side, but attitude is different. So, my question, is it different enough to avoid double rejection or should I pull it?

Best regards,

Walter

I feel that they are too similar and there is a very strong risk of a double rejection. The level looks way off to me on the queued image too....look at the pole of the windsock

Hi Mick,

Thanks for the feedback! I will pull it then before it gets screened (still a couple of days to go  Wink , so I can still leave it here for anyone to read this thread...).

PS: I agree, that the level looks odd, because of the pole with the windsock (which is not a perfect vertical...), but I aligned it with some other verticals on the part of the picture that is now cropped out...

Best regards,

Walter

Hi Walter

The angle is not that different, so as to avoid the double rejection, IMO. Maybe if it were shot from the back or a 90º angle it could have made that difference.

Hi Mick, I thought that windsocks may give an idea of the level of the pic, but are they that reliable as a vertical reference? I´ve always been careful with these poles, because if they´re subject to strong winds, they may not be perfectly vertical in the end.
