The "Your First Accepted Photo" Thread

Hi all,

I was surprised to find that I finally got a photo accepted here at Airliners.net today. Rather than start a self-glossing thread (which would be futile anyway, since it would most likely get deleted), I decided to start this one. So, post your first accepted Airliners.net shot!

Nothing may come from this, but at least it's something different from the "I Need Advice" lingo. I bought my 400D in January and have been teaching myself how to use it for a few months now and I don't regret investing in my new hobby one bit.

My first accepted shot, the Navy C-40A I recently flew on from Fallon, NV (KNFL) to Oceana, VA (KNTU), BUNO 165835:

Chris: I remember when you were trying to get that photo on here a few weeks back; it's always very nice to look at.

My first acceptance after... seven different photos rejected, I think. Got this one on my first try. It was worth it, because that particular day the temps were in the teens and I was freezing my toes off even with the occasional run into the heated car.

Not a good picture, but a neat one for me at least. It's also my only picture on A.net.  Wink Not surprising at all.

Thanks to ThierryD for editing this picture. Without his help, it would never have made it up.

This is my first and only photo. I got it accepted on my first try; it's the only photo I have ever uploaded. Thanks to Lew/ EWS for the help editing this picture. Right now I need to get my censor cleaned cuz it has like 4 or 5 dust spots.  mad

I remember how elated I was when I got the acceptance email from this shot, one of those good old childhood memories I guess  Smile It was taken with a 3.2 mpxl camera with no zoom - those were the days...

I actually stood in that spot for 10 minutes waiting for a clean shot of the plane. It was well worth it.

... and I have my first real airliner in the queue now (if it would be accepted, than that would mean my first airliner on A.net, so far I only have military stuff on here).

Exact date of uploading is not known, Johan had no such statistics back then. But it was somewhere in summer 1998.
At first a very crappy scan (in those days almost everything got accepted), later reuploaded with another crappy scan (but less crappy than before).

Accepted after 30 rejected pics    . But the fourth I sent after changing my workflow    . I used to make all editing actions and resize as last action, so I think it's a normal thing to have 30 rejections with such a workflow.
