Double Upload Or Your Buddy Standing Next To You!

Sat Dec 04, 2010 1:00 pm

Interesting to see how your buddy processes the image of that aircraft he took a frame of when he was standing next you! Look for the differences in processing if any   Here is an example of when the retro BA 757 made it's last visit to Manchester and Tony tight crop was stood next to me... or was I standing next to him?

Didn't expect to see another photo from THAT location! I was in with an enormous amount of the TV and print media from around the world that morning (lots of pushing and shoving), and apart from 1 other occasional a.netter who I know of, I didn't expect anyone else from here to be there.

My photo rated very poorly though.

I have one

Air Austral taken moments apart. You can tell by the light pole under the tail/wing. Same image size just slightly different editing.

I don't know the other chap that took this shot (there were a few peaple on the balcony), but I must admit it brought a smile to my face to see an almost identical snap. Very interesting to see the difference in editing as well.

Out of curiosity, is there a reason that almost identical photos are accepted? Aren't doubles one of the rejection criteria? It would seem that this practice increases the chances of the wrong photographer being associated with a certain shot.

Another thing I noticed, at least in the first pair of photos, is that depending on which screener you ask, the color is significantly different. Look at the grass and the red on the tail. I thought that no matter what post work is done, colors were supposed to be consistent?

Yes, it is, but only if both the photographs are from the same photographer, of the same aircraft and of the same flight (on any given date). Rules are slightly different for cabin shots if I remember correctly.

As far as I understand, there isn't an exclusivity on the general subject of a photograph (it's not patented). When you think about it, it's not anyone's fault if another photographer was standing next to you when you took the picture.

Double doesn't apply to two (or more) photographers.

Camera sensors can vary quite a bit from brand to brand. Also, if you were looking at those photos individually you probably wouldn't know the difference. Like all editing that is done for Anet, there are limits to what is acceptable, and although different, they are both within limits.

Here are a couple of mine:

It's suggestions like this that make uploading to this site even less enjoyable. It's a knife-edge to get acceptable quality as it is, but now it is being suggested that if a photo might be accepted after the other person's one - that it should be identical to his/her photo too? Who is to know which colour and contrast editing is more correct? That suggestion is just quite insulting.

Dealing with photos to go to newspapers or in publications is a whole lot easier, more rewarding and much more fun.

Is that a record for one aircraft at the same time?

Megatop412 - if the rules of the site were such that 'doubles' from different photographers were rejected it would become a nightmare. You can imagine the competitive instinct we already see amongst some photographers would really come to the fore, with people breaking the speed limit to rush home to get their shot first in the queue (or worse!). The camaraderie we see amongst many photographers - where people tell each other about rare aircraft visiting the local airport etc - might even be threatened, with people fearing that the other guy might get his photo accepted first.

There is absolutely no way there could ever be justification for such a rule.

Paul

WOW ... Paul i think the 154 must be a record .

Jid ... or did i just copy your image and re-crop it ??

To be honest i don't really check who's got what on before i upload ... i just think maybe we all have an eye for a superb shot  

Plus when you had a day like we did for the retro im surprised no more have popped up yet !

It was a superb day with Jid , Paul & the Higg

In this case the first photographer must have made an outline of his footprints, the next guy stepping right into them a while later. The only difference are the lights in the background buildings.

I shouldn't be surprised that the meaning of my post was completely missed.

This site enforces a very narrow set of acceptance criteria, yet when I point out that colors are off I get "sensors of different cameras record colors differently". How comical. Then the response that it's "insulting" to suggest that if this site is going to accept pretty much identical shots from different contributors the colors should look the same. Well, shouldn't they?

I had no idea that doubles of almost the exact same shot are allowed if they are taken by different shooters until someone just pointed it out here. Doesn't that then imply that someone's unique photo of the same aircraft but at a different location could be rejected for "common", since there's a greater number of that aircraft in the database now because of the doubles? I'm just pointing out what seems to not make sense. I thought shots would be rejected if they looked just like others already on the database, but I can see I'm wrong.

And as for the sense of "competitiveness" that would lead to people breaking the speed limit just to rush home to post their shots, that's just pathetic. If there are people out there who are compelled to do that and chance killing themselves and others, that's just downright sad. Could you imagine someone trying to use that excuse in a courtroom after they wiped out and ran someone over? "Your honor, I was in a hurry because John Doe got the same shot of the Sopwith Camel that I did and I was trying to get home so I could get it on Anet before him".

If camaraderie were truly the spirit that photographers carried within themselves, then the "need to post first on Anet" should take a backseat to that. But, I guess the frenzy some work themselves into about "being first" is no different here than it is anywhere else in life.

And if cpd isn't having fun uploading anymore because I asked a photography question on a photography forum, maybe he should start submitting to newspapers and publications as he suggests

No it doesn't because we need to remember that a photo won't be rejected simply because there are many examples of it already in the database. 'Common' should only be used in tandem with one or more other rejection reasons, and suggests to the photographer that - because the aircraft in question already features a lot in the database - standards for acceptance are even higher.

I know what you mean about the "pathetic" nature of what I was suggesting above, but unfortunately I have to say I would bet a small wager that the assumption would be correct (for some, by no means all!). People are people and, for many, the 'prize' of getting their photo on A.net is a big motivator. If a rule as you suggest was instituted I feel sure there would be untoward consequences somehow.

That terrible man Jid Webb let my car tyres down so that he could get home first to upload this newsworthy photo, as this aircraft had been involved in a 'Mayday'   .

Of course, I am joking - Jid is a real gent and careful viewers might note that despite me winning the race and getting the photo uploaded before he did, he got about 34,000 more views   .

So it was not me letting your tyres down that did it then!

I do like to see all the different examples posted, it shows how different people/equipment render a similar image. There is certainly no right or wrong way to process your image as these examples show.

Megatop does have a point. You ask "who is to know which colour and contrast editing is more correct?" Well, that's what the screeners are here for. They reject images for a very small lack of contrast, for slight changes in color, yet when you post two images side by side and the differences in color/contrast is easily seen, it calls into question the screening standards.

Do I think every shot should have the exact same amount of contrast, color, sharpening, darkness, lightness, etc.? No.

But it's a little frustrating when I get a photo rejected and it later gets accepted with a very small change, I wonder if the change was really necessary.

Megatop was asking a simple, legitimate question and I feel he should get an answer without the insulting accusations.

I already answered it above in reply 9.

1) Cameras and processing CAN be very different.

2) Screeners eyes can be very different - but if the images are within the limits of the 1-3 screeners who view the image, it will be added. That doesn't mean, however, that other screeners might accept the photo so readily, because they might see something different.

The truth is HUMANS are doing all the work, and there are bound to be differences in everything we see. I for one, enjoy seeing how different people process the same photo, which I think was the original point of this thread.

I too think Megatop has a point, although I think it's practically impossible for every double to have the same colour, contrast, etc. Different cameras adapt to different colours, and you have to bear in mind that, at the time of screening, the screeners don't have time to sit there and compare the image side-by-side with a similar one. In the two BA retro examples the colours look right when viewed individually, and not too dissimilar when viewed together (although the differences are apparent).

As for banning doubles by different photographers, that's just ridiculous in my opinion. Too much time to enforce properly and a big element of unfairness - not to mention the feuding that would inevitably come with the increased competition!

By the way, after today Gary King and I have a bucket-load of doubles to add to this thread!!!

Here's another example...

The colours are evidently different, but both look right to me. Tony's is 'cooler' and brighter (which I prefer), whereas mine has a 'warmth' to it perhaps more reflective of the actual light on the morning (not long after sunrise).

And one more for fun...

Seriously though, most of the "off colour" shots can be achieved by selecting a different or custom white balance in camera. This has absolutely nothing to do with post-processing, and if I would get an editing rejection for something that I can change in cam, I don't know what....

Exactly! But... I have my WB set to Auto on the camera and I always set the WB in post-processing.

I honestly wouldn't say it's a big deal. One white balance clearly is warmer than the other.

Again... this can be done in-camera to achieve a certain effect. I don't see how that poses a problem, unless we're now going by hard-core photojournalism ethics here.

Not sure if they are from the same takeoff sequence, but I definitely remember the day that aircraft was at BFI.

I haven't met Royal, but I do really like his work. I sometimes look to see what he and other "locals" have done to see how to make my images better, since I often shoot from the same locations.

I don't think having multiple shots of the same sequence from different photographers is at all a bad thing. It shows you how other people frame images and how they work with the light, and honestly, the more the merrier. Everybody I've met so far while out shooting has been friendly.

How does the colour change for two shots taken side by side?

What I can think of:
1. Lens used- some lenses are warmer eg. some sigmas
2. Sensors- different cameras have a slightly different colour cast to the picture.
3. White balance- it is similar to post processing, the camera does it for jpg or the photog can change in raw.(Ideally WB may be set by using a white area on the shot when it is practical to do so).
4. Editing- colour corrections during post processing (WB or not)

Do the two shots have to be identical colour-wise? Not really as long as it is pleasing and not deviating too much from reality.
I believe people here are allowed to use filters while shooting.

I thought for sure there was a mistake when I saw Gabriel's name on this picture about a week after I had uploaded mine into the queue.

Surely he must have been standing close enough for our shoulders to be touching, but I didn't even notice.

When I first saw this shot from Daniel, it was uploaded under another registration (the Swiss Air Force participated with single- and double-seater):

After a closer look, and looking at my (almost identical) shot, I concluded that it was the same aircraft (so, I e-mailed Daniel and A.net asking to correct the registration. After a while, it was then indeed corrected.).

Just cause you're standing next to your buddy doesn't mean you'll wind up with the same stuff...

Now THAT's what I like to see!! Best example in this thread!

I just remembered. I do have an example to share...

When the first United PMUA aircraft was painted into the new CO-UA livery, it sure attracted a lot of photographers. On its second visit to LAX in the new livery, it seems like a whole bunch of us made sure it was covered at all angles. Ironically the order of shots uploaded to the database is in the order of the takeoff sequence (and no, this was not planned).

Dear god, this is exactly why I try to avoid spotting on weekends and at commercial airports. You should see BFI when a new 787 or a highly publicized new livery flies - so many photog's come out of the woodworks it becomes comical to this daily rain or shine spotter. I'm sure my frustrations are shared by others...?
