Just A Question!

Thu Jan 31, 2008 7:01 pm

Hi,

Today some of my photos which i have taken during the WEF 2008 was on screening but one of my photos picturing a MD900 which i have already seen last year has been rejected as "Double" :

So here is my question : Can we upload a second picture of an aircraft which we already have in the database ? i mean, if we can't post a second photo after one year, so why are there so many side shots of a basic A320 from AF, BA or UA ?

Thanks for the answer...

Best regards

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.

Show the rejection and you will be helped.

Yes, i totally agree with that, but sometimes we can see identical side shots accepted of an aircraft at the same airport at the same date by the same photographer... while i have a picture rejected as double showing a helicopter face to face and an other one showing it 3/4 rear (and i have a lot of example, like many of my friends) !

I think that some photographers can post several photos of a single aircraft easier than others !

I tried twice to upload an air-to-air shot of a Duchess with a feathered prop. It was rejected as a double both times as I had already uploaded an air-to-air shot of the aircraft with both of them turning. I felt a little cheated since its not everyday you get an air-to-air of a feathered prop, and given the different configurations I thought it should go. I got over it eventually. At some point you have to acknowledge that the site does not always take what you consider to be your best work. It's their loss  Wink
