Almost always, when uploading a new picture of mine to the queue, I browse through the images already in the database of the plane I'm about to add ...
This is usually just to check that there isn't many of the same aircraft already in the database, to avoid the "baddouble" rejection.
I often have to chuckle at previous uploads from years gone by, and are truly AMAZED at how far we've come in the last 3-4 years. Just thought I'd show one of my recent uploads (Self-plug !! ) ...compared to the Prince of Airliners.net ('cause he's 2nd at the moment.... ), that being AirNikon !
No responses needed ..... just something to look at ...and a SELF-PLUG ! ..........Shaun

the cool thing is to look at older stuff and see that the photographer new their stuff, even if the equipment wasn't as good they still knew how to take good photos. These 2 are still some of my very faves, Vegas makes it a lot easier.
And my last download was a bit of an artie one that i got in via Johan'S screening. I downloaded it a few weeks ago. Still with my little Fuji S7000 , but fingers crossed not for much longer !!! 20D + 70-200 f2.8 L & 100-400 L + 2.0 converter comming my way soon

Oh Man, I nearly died laughing when I saw your picture of the old Aloha Air 737 taken at the ramp at OGG ...
I don't know why it's funny but I think that just about every "bad-something" would apply to this picture today !! But still ..... I LIKE IT !!
Thanks for sharing everybody, as my Grandpa used to say .... Nostalgia, is not just a pretty word ......
(btw, I also like the stories of how for our first pics, most of us had to beg, borrow or steal somebody's old antique camera that was lying around ..... and NOW we're all running around with 20D's & D100's !!.....incredible !!)

Comparing earlier vs recent not only shows how far we've come perfecting our craft. I shows what got us interested to pursue this hobby and improve our skills. Even though the quality may not be there, many earlier images show planes, places, and events that can't be seen now. I still enjoy looking at my earlier images with fondness. You won't see them on Anet but they do bring a smile to me as I sort slides to scan.
