    I've just spent three days in Beijing hoping to get some nice shots. Unfortunately the weather here isn't always the best and east asia is generally having some pretty grim weather at the moment anyway. Finally managed to see the Air Koryo Antonov that had eluded me on my previous visits and some other airlines that we don't get to see in Shanghai. The photos that I have are, what you would say, for the personal collection. This is all part of the fun that is photography and hoping for better weather at Heathrow next month . Thank you to the jetphotos team for all their hard work and wishing us all some good luck on our next visits to an airport.

Just asking for a little perspective so you don't let JP's acceptance of your photos dictate how much you enjoy your hobby or your travels.
    I enjoy my hobby, regardless of the photos, whether they are accepted or rejected.

    I giving up with other things so I can fly abroad from time to time. I'm 58 years old, but I flew for the first time after age 40.
    I'm one of old-timers here, but I have only few simple cameras with few simple lenses, the cheapest equipment one can buy.


    This discussion has unfortunately become disrespectful.
    Why did this happen? All in all that I wrote my personal opinion that you should not reject outright photos taken in bad weather.

    Another people wrote similar things, but you personally decided for some reason to respond to me in the way you responded.
    I'm done here.
    All the best.

    Amen to that!!

    There are lots of other things to do in Amsterdam, London, Paris, Zurich, ... apart from taking photos of aircraft!

    I really can not afford to spend a lot of money.
    My economic status is unfortunately low.
    My cameras and lenses are also relatively simple and inexpensive.
    If I plan a year ahead for the trip, but get bad weather, what can I do?
    I do not live in Europe or in the United States, and every trip is very expensive for me.
    I do not ask for mercy, I do what I see fit, but I do not think that photos was taken during bad weather should be rejected out of hand.
    It's just a little content for thought.

    All the best.

    This already happened to me that I booked a week for spotting at NYC but the weather was just terrible. Instead of going out for spotting I kept my equipment in the bag and drove somewhere else for sightseeing. There are always other possibilities
    I just hate to edit pictures which were made under bad conditions and don't like to see them on JP too.
    When you live in the US or Europe it is much easier for you than for someone who lives in Israel, like me, just for example.

    If you wan't to reduce queue, maybe it is time to intrduce new queue limits, based on number of accepted photos and acceptance ratio? Even for ex Elite Members?

    For instance. 10 slots for new member, and that number should rise along with number of accepted photos and acceptance ratio, let's say above 50%. And for ex EM: if your ratio drops below let's say 60-70%, your queue limit is reduced to 60, ofcourse until your ratio will exeed given %.

    cheers

If you decide to take the chance to spend the time and money to go somewhere spotting, great, that's your decision, but it should in no way affect how your images are screened. Otherwise, the potential for a class division arises. Think of all the people who can't afford to take a flight anywhere for spotting. Are you truly saying your images deserve more of a chance than theirs simply because you could afford to spend more money?

    We've all had bad luck with the weather; just accept it as part of the hobby, and don't bring how rich you are into it.

    It happened to me personally and that's very disappointing.
    Therefore I don't think such photos should be rejected out of hand. Just my two cents...

    One tip for anyone planning on going to an Airshow.

    First you need to contact me and find out if I'm going. If I am then cancel your plans because it WILL rain or be generally shit weather.

    Sometimes it simply isn't worth the aggravation.
    That can happen indeed. It's getting worse when your in Tokyo....
