Photo Acceptance - Post Screening (Walter2222)

Tue Aug 25, 2009 10:46 pm

Hi,

I had this one rejected for "double":

I assume the reason is that I have already a head-on shot of this aircraft in the database. I also have a shot from the other side (but that was taken on a different date). Is is correct to state that if a head-on shot is in the database, another shot from either side will be rejected for double?

Thanks for your inputs!

Best regards,

Walter

Hi Walter,

No, normally a head on and a side on should be OK as long as they show a different enough motive.
In any case, if you feel strongly about it, you can always appeal.

Cheers, Andrés.
Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!

Thanks for your feedback, Andres! I am not sure that my pictures show a different enough motive (maybe that was the thought of the screener rejecting it for double?). My own motive was to shoot without any other people around the aircraft, which is not easy for a restored aircraft in a museum (unless the weather is so bad that no people want to go out in the rain, as I was doing on the date of the shot  Smile ).

Best regards,

Walter

Hi Andres,

I have put it up for appeal. The problem, however, is that, personally, I cannot see the shot anymore (because the added code, together with my long file-names, make it too long...). I wonder if the head-screeners can still see the shot??

Best regards,

Walter

Unfortunately, also rejected on appeal  Sad
