Exclamation Autimated System

Today I sent in a picture of what looked like an SD70AC, but really an SD70M. When the upload got finished, I then clicked the enlarger button and it said "their is no ID for this picture." I then go to my rejected photos page and already in less than a minute it is their. This is rediculus. I think the system here is automated. I think that their computer anly accepts pictures from friends.

What photo got rejected and the reason? There is a lot of SD70's in the database. It would have to be of high quality to get accepted.

What's weird is that I allways see skies like this, and this SD70M is a different type of SD70M.

Again, why was it rejected? My guess is a cloudy day shot of a SD70 and unlevel horizon.

Just my $.02

Wow, that surely was a quick screening turnaround. Must've been #1 in the queue.

Where do you come up with a crazy idea like that?

I see skies like that too when it's cloudy. That's why I ususally don't get the camera out. A different type of SD70M? Not really. That's the "Phase 3" with the new nose styling. They've been around for a while. Besides, for what amounts to a roster shot, the lighting has to be perfect. In this case, it's not even close.

LOL, Sometimes it is just hard . . . we all love our shots more than we should. Put someone else's name or credit line below and then see what you think of it. Often a rejection is a wake up call. A chance to look at your shot and see/learn what one can do, or not do to take better shots. I think the screeners for the most part have seen enough stuff to know theirs.

As far as the automated thing . . . if they could afford that we would not have to put up with the stupid banners blinking and making one the special winner of a prize every day, think on that one.

The screening process is not automated, you simply uploaded the photo while a screener was screening.

In regards to the photo you uploaded, it would be best kept for your personal collection. I don't think anything you could do to the image will bring it up to database standards.

I agree. Also, it looks like you are shooting print film (Looks like 400 or 800 the way the grain is) , maybe you should try a digital camera. There are many good digitals out there that I'm sure would give you good results.

Boy, if you lived in the Northeast you wouldn't be getting it out at all... Not being sarcastic! This:
http://richpalm88.rrpicturearchives....aspx?id=104012 is an average Pa. day. Or white skies.

I gave up fighting the sun all the time and shoot whatever, whenever, I want. If you want perfect, cloudless days here, it just ain't gonna happen. We *might* get a few a year. (when at work) So If I want any quantity of pictures at all, in mud, slop or snow, I say the hell with it and go. And the quality ones go in my own archive, the real losers get the delete key.

For me, if I keep pining away for the perfect day, I'd think myself into a psych ward real quick!

***

On screening: I have pretty much figured out what times screeners do their thing and upload then. I've had the results within a couple minutes then.

Before making such untrue comments, be sure to check your spelling.....

for the record, it's Automated, the word, not the screeners....
