Hi,

I hesitated before posting this, but then I thought 'what tha heck', I only reach 100 one time... so please bear with me while I enjoy my little self-gloss moment.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

So a big thank you goes to Johan for the great site, all the Crew that had to put up with my photos (especially the rejects!), and everyone here in this forum from whom I've got help, information, inspiration, and motivation.

My 1st and 100th pics:

I got lucky with these two.... It was the first time I ever saw an 777 (don't laugh!), and it was great to get it accepted here. As for the Tu154, it is one of my favorite airliners. This one is a new delivery to Continental Airways, and is still very clean! Two rare shots that really make me proud.

And my two favorites:

The Euro 2004 was the best thing that ever happened to portuguese spotters. We had types of traffic here that will probably never return, like this BA 744. I (and others) feel really lucky to capture this moment, with a little help from the ATC! As for the other image, it was taken during the apron visit at Faro, and I really like the saturated colours caused by the polarizer.

Next objectives... getting a better lens. I'm planning on the 70-200 f4 L. Go to MAD in April and get lots of diferent traffic that never comes to LIS (hello Peter Max!). Try to help others with the little I know and learn everyday with the great photographers of this site. And keep on shooting...

"You currently have 100 photos in our database. The large version of all your photos have been viewed a total of 27655 distinct times. On average, a photo of yours has been viewed 277 times."

Again, thank you all! Next milestone, 250!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Regards,
Luis

Hey congratz Luis! You've got some nice shots here on A.net, and 100 more then me. Big grin I am seriously thinking about getting a camera soon, preferably digital, that's simple and not too expensive yet decent enough to take shots that will get accepted here. Anyone have any suggestions?

Try the Olympus C7xx range. Powerful zoom, clean images. Most of my pics here were taken with a C740. I had a little trouble with it but it's working fine now.

Luis, congratulations. Here's to your next hundred and more.

Hi Luis,

Congratulations on your 100 photo on the DB. You are a good photographer and a good friend.

Also your non aviation photos are an inspiration.

Keep up the good work.
