Re: Photographer's choice

I would really like to avoid having the screening team decide about PCs or even what is PC eligible and what is not. As JK said above, that is opening the well known favoritism can of worms. If the system is apparently not working perfectly fine with a large number of photographers being able to vot...

Re: "Withheld" location is allowed or not??

I cannot speak for what happened seven years ago, but I can tell that Withheld is a valid location nowadays. It is better if you could give the real location, but we also understand that some military movements cannot be disclosed, and thus the usage of Withheld is allowed.

Cheers,
Miguel

Re: New camera decision - would like some feedback on what others have.

Adding to Kas's response, the mk2 version of the 100-400 is noticeably sharper, mostly so on long focal lengths (300 to 400mm) and wide(r) apertures. It works very very nicely with the 5DIV. Question - just to add fuel to the fire - have you considered going mirrorless? Either with the EOS R or with...

Re: Weird cabin layout SAS A321LR

I guess that doing seven rows of 2-2 > 1-1 > 2-2 and so on gets you one extra seat when compared to TAP and other's 2-1 > 1-2 > 2-1. That would match SAS's expected 22 seats.

Look at the details on the Saab. Look at the registration, the lines below it, the exhaust pipe of the engines, wheels, windows, etc. All of those show thin light halos and jagged edges. That is the oversharpening. Now compare that with the LH and with the Iraqi. If you see all three the same, maybe...

Re: Have quality standards changed on here recently?

It is indeed too blurry and was accepted by mistake. The photographer has been notified already and the shot will be removed.

I have to agree that the angle and the motive are great, but in this case the quality just isn't there.

In terminal 1 I would recommend the area around gate A28 and the new Z pier (gates A50 - A69) if you are in the Schengen area. From there the only option to get to the viewing deck is to go landside and take the bus to terminal 2 as the skylink train is closed at the moment.

Re: "This value is already used"

Shouldn’t the “Aircraft Manufacturer Filter Enabled” be set to “Yes”? I guess setting it to “No” makes the site try to insert new values in the database, and that fails as the value already exists. Just a guess on my side.

Re: Unifying airline/aircraft/airport names in photo search

Unification / Standarization of duplicated entries is high on the priority list, but at this point is just not possible for the editors to do such batch processing. As soon as the tools are ready - no idea when - I am sure they will clean up duplicates as quickly as possible.
