A lot of photographers on a.net and even far more photos! Some of us (like me) have just started and have a few photos in the database. There are also photographers with more than 1000 photos! And of course everything between. Not every single photo might have its own particular story, but I wondered, on which of your photos are you most proud? And why you are?
It is my latest accepted photo and, with the help of Tim de Groot, I haven't spent so much time on editing a photo as on this one. Also, it is my first photo of an airline from the USA, which is a very special country to me.
I am looking forward to see your "most proud ons"
PS, this post is thus not intended for boosting views on one of my photos.
I am very proud of not because it is a stunning photo but it was taken at one of my favourite places, Paphos and it was the photo which took me to 2,000 photos on airliners.net and took me past 1 million views at the same time.
Events such as the last day of Concorde ops and the day I got the chance to go inside Concorde I am also proud of but my second image is this one :-

I think it would go to one my more recent photographs. I popped into Goodwood in the early evening thinking the aerodrome would be shut and there would be nothing flying. This Robinson was just leaving from Elite Helicopters. I was really pleased with the lighting.
Not that this picture is original, and I for sure didn't select it because it needed incredible photo skills. But I love London, especially this part of town with all those famous monuments. I've been there a few times, and after seeing all those "wing and London city centre" pictures in the database I told myself that I must get one as well! So it's really a personnal favorite!
Again nothing rare or extraordinary. But I like how sharp it turned out even if I had to crop quite a bit to get it as I wanted it. Also I do love the "impressive look" of the aircraft from that particular angle / framing, seeing the pilots looking so small compared to the size of the aircraft is really impressive for me...
