Hi all,

It all started
here
on June 21st, 1999.
After 5 years of shooting aircraft, editing the pictures, uploading them, getting them rejected, re-editing them again, finally getting them accepted  Laugh out loud, I finally reach that magical 1000 mark on airliners.net.

So I would like to acknowledge a few people in light of this.
A big thanks to my parents for all the trips they directly or indirectly funded.
I would also like to thank all the flightcrews and FA’s who made my jumpseat, cockpit and cabin photos possible.
I would never have reached that mark if I hadn’t met the following people :
First one responsible for this is an ex a.net photographer that does not wish to be named.
He produces excellent aviation work which can be found here :
http://www.aviaimage.com
He showed me what aviation photography was all about.
Secondly, fellow a.net photographer and very good friend Antoine Ossadzow :

Our little rivalry drastically increased my number of photos  Laugh out loud
Many thanks also to the screeners who put up with my constant uploading – big hi to Charles and Peter. Thanks to all of you screeners for your time and patience.
Last but not least,a big thanks to my fiancée Cécile who puts up with her biggest rivals for my attention, aircraft.
Finall, 1000 was achieved with film, slides and compact digicams.
Now I’m shifting to Canon power…you ain’t seen nothing yet  Laugh out loud
To the next 1000 !

Will

Now, the plugfest :

But maybe the reuploading of unchanged rejected shots will stop then?

Congrats on reaching 1000! That is a good achievement! Out of interest how many have you had rejected? Have you reached the 1000 mark on rejects yet?  Smile

On a more serious note

I thought that the reuploading of unmodified rejected photos was viewed VERY harshly?. Since this kind of behaviour is unfair to the other photographers and screeners, shouldn't it be treated with some kind of penalty?

Just my two penny's!

reuploading unaltered rejections is just stupid and should indeed go with a penalty.. for instance a week no uploading for the one who did it.. Smile

No uploading for a week ? William would die, that is worse than being banned from the forums !!!

Congratulations William!

A fine effort mate and I can't believe your still sane having owned your D30 for a couple of weeks now without getting your hands on it!

Here's to the next 1000!

Cheers!

Just back from PIK  Big thumbs up
Concerning the badreupload thingy :
Just because it looks the same doen't mean it is the same.
I NEVER reupload the same exact reworked shot.
When I get it rejected, I take the original jpeg file and rework that according to the rejection reasons. I mean that.

William (and all)

It is not ALWAYS possible to recover EVERY image by reworking it. Please look long and hard at the rejected image, and consider whether the rejection reason can be overcome with rework or not. Sometimes a "badblurry" (or whatever) cannot be fixed with rework.
