Hello all.

Now before you all start coming with the "who cares about this thread", or "look at this attention whore", I would like to just explain why I started this topic.

Getting a picture uploaded to this site was a lot harder then I thought. Little did I know  ashamed  what I was letting myself into, when I at first scanned in prints from a somewhat 40 year old manual pentax camera. Figuring out that that was not the way to go pretty fast I borrowed a more modern camera. But results were still not promising, as I was still scanning those pictures. I didn't have a digital camera, but I knew that pics are still uploaded with an analog.

I started a topic quite a while back ago concerning the problem. Told by many photographers, I learnt all the faults what I was doing (of Course). Even though scanning in negatives would have been possible, I decided just to go all the way and get a digital camera. I got the Canon 350D. Still at the beginning I only had rejection. But step by step I managed to get the right settings and how to work on it with programs.
Then finally I got it done, the wonderful conformation by email, that your picture has been accepted. This was the picture

Congrats, I remember mine also, it was only about 6 months ago, and I have improved so much over the last half year. Don't get discouraged if you get further rejections, just take it as a learning experience, and you will get better with time.

Congratulations and excellent photo! I still remember the day I got my first a.net acceptance, it was definetly a good day (no comments from the peanut gallery). Enjoy this day, you'll notice it gets easier from here.

Congrats!

It took me a while to figure out how to get best results out of a Canon AE-1 and a flatbed scanner, but I managed to get it to work, and about half my photos I used the AE-1, the other half are taken with my newer Rebel. It definitely isn't the best way to go though...I still get lots of rejections...

Thanks for all the compliments!  veryhappy  . It truly was a  weightlifter  to get the first one up. I sent in more now, hoping for more good results.
Its true that a.net really makes you into a good photographer.
