    As far as I am aware a rough rule of thumb is that it is obstructed if 50% or more of the wheels are covered.
    If it 'ain't broken........ Don't try to mend it !

          In addition the obstruction must be unavoidable. If the grass is low and you just had the only higher lump of grass in front of the wheel, it will be rejected.

            That makes sense to me. I personally don't like partly blocked wheels at all.

              Dear friends,
              I am writing here following several rejections during the last days.
              According to the new rules, as I understand it at my old age, photos of the same aircraft if they taken at different days, are not considered as "similar".
              Also, according to what the some of the staff wrote here in recent months, I understand that photo taken in sequence are considered "similar," but if a previous photos was taken a few years ago, it is not considered "similar".
              Also written here: "If a new upload is of a significantly better quality, we may consider accepting it."
              So I am really confused, and my feeling is that every staff member thinks differently, and so there is no uniformity in decisions.
              Apparently, even between the seniors there is no uniformity ...
              Best regards,
              Erez.

                Hi all,

                I apologize if this is not the right place to make this question. I upload photos since 2006 but I'm new in the forum!
                I would like to ask 2 question if possible. I have to upload 2 runways pictures taken when onboard of a plane. Do I have to flag Wing view category (the wing is not visible, but reasonably it's easy to understand that the pictures were taken behind a glass cabin) and even Airport overview in order to have the picture accepted? From the guidelines that's not so clear!
                Thanks a lot for your help
                Roby

                  Erezs,
                  I think I know which pics you're talking about. You are right, we are way more tolerant on different dates but... If you take a photo from the same reg, from the same spot, which is as common as a Swiss 320 at ZRH, with exactly the same angle 3 years appart without any improvement in quality, the database really doesn't need that new pic, neither does your portfolio unless you're only looking for numbers.

                  So about your ZRH pics, ZRH has more than 20 spots all around the airport, why did you go to exactly the same spots again ?
                  And then the numbers, I consider myself a local at ZRH and went there at least 25 times for spotting. I have 379 pics from there but never got a similar rejection...
                  You've been to ZRH how many times ? 5 ? But you have the towering.... 1342 pics from ZRH !!! That's great but it also clearly shows that you're most probably not very selective...
                  Be selective, upload for quality and not for the numbers and similar rejections will be history, simple as that

                  Regards
                  Alex

                    Alex,
                    Thank you for the answer.
                    First I'm not looking for numbers.
                    But if I have a new photo, even from the same place, but it is much higher quality than a picture from 2012, then according to your rules this photo should be accepted.
                    But I understand from your things above that there are rules but there is no obligation to follow the rules ...
                    Just by the way, in the photo from 2012, Swiss's livery it was old, while the new rejected photo it is with new livery, but you rejected the new photo ...
                    Please see only one example below.
                    This is the old photo:
                    https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/7194499
                    This is the new one but it's rejected:
                    https://www.jetphotos.com/viewqueued_b.php?id=6697246
                    So you have rules, but there is no obligation to follow the rules ...
                    Never mind, I'll go on living with it ...
                    Cheers,
                    Erez.

                    • Erezs,
                      The 340 you have in the database is way better than the rejected one. I didn't screen it but it was an excellent decision as the new one is barely lit by the morning light while the one you have in the database has a fabulous golden morning light. Both taken from same spot, same plane, same location.
                      Oh and it's upload GUIDELINE, nobody said rules except you.

                      And sorry Erezs, but yes, it's all about the numbers, uploading the maximum pics possible, trying to bend the guideline in your favour, even by sending us PM asking for "exception" decisions (that has to stop btw)

                      Sorry but this is uploading for the numbers :

                      https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9002338 + https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9002335
                      https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9002333 + https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9002329
                      https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9002330 + https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9002362
                      https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9007044 + https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/9007058

                      These are just a few examples of extremely common traffic in ZRH, pics are ok but have absolutely nothing special, they are taken only a few seconds appart. Can you imagine if everybody would do like that ? The queue would be at 32000 - Believe it or not but it's only a tiny tiny minority of the photographers on JP that would upload left/right sides of planes like that. I don't mind you upload 2 shots of a rare VIP SP at ZRH, but why would you feel the need to upload 2 shots of a BA 319 which we have 308 times in the database, why 1 wouldn't be enough ?
                      My point is that it's okay, you're allowed to do it but PLEASE don't come and tell us and the community that you're not uploading for the numbers, and if you keep uploading the way you are, please stop blaming us for the similar rejections when you get some.

                      Have a good night

                      Alex

                        I do not agree with all what you wrote, but it is you who decides here, not me ...

                        Good night to you too.

                          Off course you don't agree. Didn't expect anything else.

                            Erwin,
                            Meanwhile the fact teaches me that your colleague has accepted two appeals, so it's supposed to indicate something.
                            About the rest of the things - I wrote you a personal message, and as it is - is personal to your eyes only.
                            Kind regards,
                            Erez.

                            • I have a question about a "Hot Photo". What if a special scheme has been removed? Is that considered as hot too?

                              Just wondering about the former Lufthansa "Siegerflieger" 747 on the homepage today...

                                Fr24 wants the most recent photo of an aircraft. So when an aircraft is repainted, yes. The first upload is hot.
