Exactly similar approved images?!

Robinstockphotos
Is this something just I am seeing or is it something actually on the site?

Take a look at this image:
   Piano Sheet Music   

And this image:
   Piano Sheet Music   


Their IDs are different, views are different and downloads are also different but they are the same images by the same contributor. I saw this in quite a few pages and I think I can find out at least a couple more of such exactly similar photos.
Is there something I am missing? The shooting info also matches EXACTLY.

Probably the user subited it twice by error (e.g. he forgot it was already uploaded) and it was accepted both times, maybe by different reviewers.

This happens now and then. Some contributors with many images may upload the same one by mistake. All you have to do is jot down the image id's and send the info to support and one will be removed. No big deal.

Oh okay so that's it. I have many such pairs all over the search results.

Not much use pointing out to support. How many can someone point at?

If it bothers you you can put them in a lightbox when you see them then share the lightbox with an admin. It's just a click to add them.

Or you could notify the Photographer, and they could remove it. It is of no advantage to have two of the exact same photos because now the sales are divided between two images taking longer to raise the level of the image.

Okay I'd comment it on the image whenever I see one. It is not good for either the contributor or others like us.
While it doesn't let the artist reach a higher level, it appears twice in the search results which places our images further back.
