Post-screening_Double

Mon Oct 29, 2012 8:00 pm

Hi All,

I just had this one rejected for double:

I know that I often push this to the limit, without exaggeration (IMHO) and hence sometimes bump into double rejections, as in this case. I assume it was rejected double with this one in mind:

Although it was shot on the same day, I thought it was different enough not to warrant a double rejection, since:
* the aircraft is in a different configuration (one with wings swept forward, the other with wings swept fully aft)
* one shot shows the aircraft making a roll, the other shot is a formation fly-past
* one shot shows more the right side of the aircraft, the other the left side of the aircraft (although I admit they both show more of the bottom-side, but top-side and bottom-side were never used to avoid double rejections).

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks and regards,

Walter -

The rules are very clear that those shots would be considered double. The reasons you give do not clarify that there is a clearly different motive. Same side, same day, same aircraft.

Hi Peter,

Actually, the rejected shot shows the left side (indeed seen from below), whereas the other shot shows the right side (also seen from below).

PS: I 've had shots accepted (in the past), where the only difference was "canopy open vs canopy closed" or "gear down vs gear up". So I thought that the wing configuration was a different enough motive (together with the other side), but I guess that I 'll have to accept that screeners see it differently  

Thanks for giving your feedback!

Best regards,

Walter
