2 Photos Of Same Aircraft But Diff. Motivation

Mon Dec 17, 2007 2:22 pm

Recently I got rejected a picture as 'double' because the photos shows the same aircraft taken at the same day and place. I must agree, the rules are applied 1:1 and the rejection is formally correct. I can live with.
Nevertheless I wonder if the rule (and not the screeners decision) makes sense in this case (Sorry for the self-plug):

The first shot – already in the DB – is a classic side-on shot. The other one I took with a different motivation: a typical evening atmosphere at BSL, including the building in the background. Regrettably I took such photos too rarely.

If a photo is assigned to be a double by the screeners can I replace the one in the DB with the other one by re-uploading ? I have not really the intention to do that, but finally why not?

What are your opinions?

These are rare pics so the double does not apply so stritly as it would do with an AF 320 in 2007.

I wondered about this regarding 2 shots, 1 taxing and one airborne but if the same side? Would the double rule apply?

Cheers,

Normally not as the rule says it is not allowed to upload pics of the same sequence as far as I remember.

I rejected the image with a personal comment.

You are aware of the double rule, more so as being an ex screener. The second image is nice without a doubt but we have to follow set guidelines. The rule was a bit slacker some years ago. Until Demand Media and the Screeners decide on any changes the rule will have to remain.

You now have the image on MyAviation anyway, part of Demand Media also.

Sorry forgot to comment on this. It is the re-upload screeners discretion as to what can be passed after re-uploading. The frame has to be the same as the one currently on the database but can be replaced by a similar frame if the quality looks much better. This frame of course has to be the same day and photographed minutes before or after.

Hi

Thanks for clearing up.

Of course I am aware of the rule, which is applied obviously more strictly even for photos taken 20 years before, like georg pointed out. I regret that in this case the screener cannot make an exception. But I understand the decision: as soon an exception is made others are claiming the same handling. The only way to avoid complaints is to follow the rules as strictly as possible.

I like the idea of MyAviation but it is for me not really a good alternative as long I cannot subscribe somehow a membership to avoid all the advertising (like here on AN).
