Uploading At JPnet As Well?

Mon Jul 17, 2006 2:41 am

Hey guys. Just wondering how many of you upload to both Anet and JPnet?

I think I'm going to try uploading all of my rejected shots to JPnet... see if they'll take em. haha

I can tell Jeff does not upload to jp.net because they have rejected pictures that I have had accepted here. Long gone are the days that they will accept anything.

Same thoughts here! I upload at both, it's often interesting to get double feedback or insights, and it's nice to have a forum at either site to post certain picks - some don't stand a chance at a.net and get on there, but also, indeed, vice versa. Especially for certain motives, that is good. That is not a criticism of either site, it is just a fact.

I uploaded to JP in my early days to learn, as the standards are far less tough than A.Net. I foud it a good place to learn new methods on PS etc etc. And as said you don't end up with that 100% rejection rate you can get in your early days at A.Net.

I went to JP and kept testing until i was at least at 90% acceptence. Then started to download the best to A.Net. After a while with time (and knowing what your doing) i moved more to A.Net. I now dont download to JP at all. And have 500+ photo's and a very healthy acceptence Ratio on A.Net.

I tend to upload to both - JP has the advantage of fast queue times, while Anet gets more attention generally. I'll keep uploading to both for the forseeable future, too.

Tell them to drop all their popups and annoying ads and I will consider it.

Till then I will go with the free site that has the least ads and that seems to be a.net.

Too dark. To some extent, I can agree with that but this version is more the way I wanted it to be.

I've had other shots rejected for dark here, and accepted there. I guess it just demonstrates the point that rejections and acceptances on both sites are based on different quality criteria.

One is not a better photograph because one's pictures get accepted here at a.net. At both sites, acceptance is the result of successfully following the rules, which are different between the two sites. Maybe people find more prestige in acceptances here rather than there, but blanket statements that the quality of pics there is low and here it's high, are just silly.

It would be interesting to know how many people in here do upload to JP. I know a few people who upload to both sites, but I personally don't have the time to upload much here, let alone two aviation sites.

Seriously now, is there a big gulf in quality between here and there? I understand the utilities their screeners have available are quite advanced. The one thing that really annoys me though, and I guess a lot of others is the amount of pop-ups.

Regards,

Tim.

I upload to both. Sometimes the same photo sometimes not. A lot of times I have multiple exposures of the same take off or landing sequence. I'll upload one of the sequence to anet and another of the sequence to jp. They'd get a bad double if I tried to upload both to both sites.

JP's Q is faster. I get about an 80% acceptance at jp and a 60% here. Sometimes I use the jp screening to pre-screen my shots in the Q here. If a shot gets rejected at jp I may re-evaluate it and decide to pull it from the Q here.

I also have had a couple of shots that were accepted here but rejected at jp. I chalk it up to the vagaries of the screening process at both sites.

Regards,
Dan

I uploaded 350 + pictures, many straight out of my 2.11 mp C-700, some with my D100. All were accepted, I had 1 rejected out of all the uploads.

I asked to have them all removed, and they were luckily. I really didn't want any image I took associated with that place.

I don't think anyone that seriously wants to purchase an image goes there looking for anything of quality. For me, that place was, and still is a huge waste of time. Not surprisingly, that opinion is shared by many here.

I couldn't stand the pop-ups, and the annoying kiddies, some which post here and are even more obnoxious. I still post there, maybe once or twice a week under a different username. Mostly just to piss some little kiddie off.  rotfl

Just wondering what the point of this thread is?

The responses are pretty predictable, I understand some folks don't like JP, some folks there don't hold A.net in real high regard either.

There are lots of folk that upload to both, some of this site's "star" photographers upload to JP, as do I beleive, some crew and former crew.

They have their criteria and A.net have theirs, what is the big deal why can't everyone just get along?

Quoting Scottieprecord (Thread starter):

I guess the "haha" meant you were joking, if not considering JP as a repository for your a.net rejects is a recipe for failure.. why not just use MyAv as your "reject folder"?

How so? It's already been said on here that JPnet is open to more creative shots than Anet... And I feel like some of my rejects deserve more traffic than myav can offer.

As for the point of this thread... I was simply wondering how common uploading to both sites is. It now seems more common than I originally thought.

I would agree that JP has different criteria and your creative shots may stand more of a chance there and get more exposure than MyAv.

I apologise if I appeared to group you with those that think JP is a photographic scrapyard.

The ignorance of some is staggering to say the least.
JP(of which i was a screener but now flying aeroplanes takes prioirity)has a clear policy of more flexibility in motive and quality allowing some great pictures which would not and have not made it here.
Having a second place to display your stuff is beneficial to everyone as it shows the type of shots which dont make it here due to the higher quality and more subjective motive criteria.
I have now sold more stuff from JP than ANET for that exact reason.Not everone in the world is after a technically "perfect" photo but many after interesting angles and images many of which do not fit ANETs bill.
Just like anet JP had a low acceptance standard on start up.Just take a look at the first 250000 photos in the DB here for proof of that.It has now moved along to the point that the standard is far higher than some peoples limited and fading memories of what ANet was like in its start up years.
Both site have a place in the aviation photography community and the sooner people realise that the better off we ALL will be.

I don't upload to JP... For a number of reasons:

- Pop-up ads
- White background does not look nice
- The high number of low quality shots in their DB (caused by the lower standards)
- Messy forum with subjects generally on a quite amateuristic/immature level (although A.net can certainly have its low moments too)

I'm from the Netherlands, so I generally check what has been added from the Netherlands. If I occasionally have a look at JP on The Netherlands and I just can't believe the amount of very boring, low quality and badly lit pictures I see. I don't want my pictures to mix with those. JP obviously targets a different group, and I don't indentify with that group. Simple.

In case you guys haven't noticed, the number of daily uploads at jp.net match those at a.net. Still it makes you wonder why jp has a 2 day wait while photos wait 2 weeks here?

To all those calling jetphotos a "substandard" database for quality reasons I say bullshit. Jetphotos has just as many stunners as Airliners, there's really not much difference (except the standards seem to be more...standard).

And no, I'm not top of the crop, that's for sure. I just want my pictures to be presented in what I think is the best possible way. I don't have my own website, so A.net is the next best thing for me. JP is not.

With the exception of a couple of recent airshows that have produced some great images the average daily upload from the Netherlands can border on the ordinary and repetitive... at BOTH sites

Damn shame really, folks can't just get along!!!
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!....well that might have changed!!!

Both site have a place in the aviation photography community and the sooner people realise that the better off we ALL will be.

Why is that?

don't be stupid jeff! there has to be an emergency backup for when a.net crash's. Big grin

when it does i normally go and have a shoofty at what has been uploaded from Aberdeen, sometimes the specially chosen ones. but really i can only recall visiting jp when a.net has been down... and by the time i get rid of all the pop ups a.net can be back up!

i uploaded 1 photo to jp, and it was rejected. and i only did that one because i thought it might be appreciated. but hayho.

i'm fine having some photos on ere, then my vein attempts at being creative/other photos i like, on my PBase which im trying to develop more..

....and to think that I got my arse flamed in another thread here for mentioning JP.net !!

When I saw the start of this thread I thought....."Oh oh, here we go again."

Another one of those " mine's bigger than yours AND it pisses further up the wall than yours !" type arguments.

Seems I wasn't to be disappointed.

by the way Jeff, this site has far more kids then the other one.

What did you do take a poll?

Quoting DLKAPA (Reply 37):
In case you guys haven't noticed, the number of daily uploads at jp.net match those at a.net. Still it makes you wonder why jp has a 2 day wait while photos wait 2 weeks here?

Wonder about what? Have you seen the DB on JP? The standards are lower and the scrutiny each pic is put under is much lower, it's not hard to figure out. This is why the queue goes so fast.

Quoting DLKAPA (Reply 37):
To all those calling jetphotos a "substandard" database for quality reasons I say bullshit. Jetphotos has just as many stunners as Airliners, there's really not much difference (except the standards seem to be more...standard

Your right JP has the same amount of stunners, but if you take the DB as a whole there are many pics that are lower in quality. If you looked at the most popular shots of the day and week you will see awesome photos. If you do a search in the DB however you will see some low quality shots.

Quoting QANTAS077 (Reply 38):
go look around the mountain of shit in these forums too....anyone care to count how many threads on QF service, best seat on a SQ 744...you want me to keep going? in a way, less is best! and don't you forget it..

Monty you conviently left out the fact that the forums here have many times the traffic and users JP does. Also the number of new members each day is huge here. That is why you get redundancy in the threads. Nobody really searches a topic before posting. Sure this site's forums have it's share of kids (both young and old) and run-on posts but it is a hell of a lot more interesting to post in than JP.

Quoting QANTAS077 (Reply 38):
seen one AMS shot seen em all...looking at your shots is no different to looking at any other photographers from AMS....boring as batshit to be honest

Interesting statement considering Eduards avg views double yours. I had a look at some shots at AMS. They are not too boring to me.

Quoting QANTAS077 (Reply 38):
what..so your shots are to good to mix with Sam Chui's, Art Brett's, Peter Unmuth and the many who upload to both? i could keep going on but i truly can't be stuffed. here is a hint...maybe you should try to identify why it is your in this hobby? is it elitism, aviation or some other reason? anyone would think your top of the crop and your shit stinks like Chanel 5...it doesn't and your not.

Monty you are out of context again, we all know Art and Sam are tops in the field but how much of thier work makes up the JP DB? They have 6 thousand pics compared to the whole DB is a small percentage. I don't think it's eliteism (which trust me you should not be talking about) It's the DB in general I think he is talking about.

Quoting QANTAS077 (Reply 40):
i'm not defending anything or anyone

Yes you are Monty, we all know you are a screener at JP, it's fine.

Really? From the posts I've read over there, I would have bet money otherwise. And statistically an equally greater number of members probably, so I would imagine a smaller percentage overall here. Or, maybe they are just not as vocal?

Quoting DLKAPA (Reply 37):

Not really.

Quoting QANTAS077 (Reply 38):

It's not them, are they tradmark photographers over there?...I've met Sam and Art, nice guys, but not photo GODs, none here either. Are you saying the site is somehow better because they upload there? How hard is it to snap a photo of an airliner? Not really hard at all. I don't see the relevance of that remark.Sure, there are some nice photos...but on the whole, there is a difference. And the experience over there with those childish popups for one thing.... SUCKS!


Posting childish images like the 'special olympics' image above is a great example of the 'quality' you see at Brand X in my opinion.

It's no big deal really, you either like it or you don't. No need for anyone to get their panties in a wad is there?

The high number of low quality shots in their DB (caused by the lower standards)

You know, there are a lot of low quality shots in A.net also from the "good old days" where you guys took almost everything. If you're going to complain about the quality at other sites, but not do anything to reconsider the value of old shots in here, the argument that people come here for high quality shots but not elsewhere is seriously undermined.

Quoting IL76 (Reply 34):
Messy forum with subjects generally on a quite amateuristic/immature level (although A.net can certainly have its low moments too)

Yeah, I don't touch the forum over there. I HATE avatars. I just want the text.

Quoting IL76 (Reply 34):
Pop-up ads

Ahh you see, but I got this TOTAL Ad blocker. I see no ads on the internet. JP's popups were so bad that they were actually crashing my computer... but no longer.

There really was no need for that.

As regards the 'debate', does it matter?

No, just read this words carefully, it's not hard to figure out unless you have a huge bias toward JP. Which Monty does.

Very simple. go look at the JP DB.
