I would like to congratulate a photographer that I've admired for a very long time for his awesome pictures and his excellent portofolio here at a.net: Je89W. from Honolulu, Hawaii.

This is his 1000th picture

IMO he couldn't have chosen a better one, I think it's his best photo at airliners and the best night shot I've seen on here for a long time! Wish I could take pictures like him someday.
Keep it up!  Wink

Cheers,
Florian  wave

I noticed that he achieved 1000 just hours ago and am very amazed by the latest one! His work is absolutely breathtaking, and the low-level (worms eye view Paul?  Smile) wide angle shots never cease to amaze me.

Congratulations!!!

Thanks for the compliments everyone, really appreciate it!

I've enjoyed many spotting sessions at SIN with the Singapore guys, dodged security at various airports (sometimes failed), missed countless opportunities, and even got myself soaked with oil while trying to get a shot . . . but it will definitely be things I never forget! It's not really about getting as many photos online as possible, but rather having fun with what you're doing and spending time with the people who love the things you do.

I hope to meet many new faces in the future! Until then, happy shooting!

Thanks again for the comments, guys!

A question: Do all those photos on Airliners.net result in any photo sales from time to time?

Jerrold,

Excellent work. Your latest 727 is one of, if not the best 727 shots in the database. You have a very nice portfolio.

Congrats.

Don't worry, it took a long time for me to get there too. Ahh, I remember the days of torturing Johan with my horrible uploads, averaging a strong 100% rejection ratio. Big grin

Yup, I do get requests for prints, cards, or for presentations, etc., from time to time.

I would like to thank everyone for their kind comments about my photos. I really appreciate it!

However, one thing I found frustrating was looking through one of the incoming links for photo #1,000.
http://www.foxalpha.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=13207
In that discussion (which is in French, but the thread title says enough), some took the time to write paragraphs, full of details, explaining why the photo was fake. You can guess what their conclusions were.  Yeah sure

Now I don't know French, but thanks to a translator, I was able to understand everything they were saying. Quite sad.

Mate I've had them too, but don't worry. Usually those discussions come from people who wouldn't even be able to take a photo as half as good as yours, because of a large appendage hanging from their forehead!

Don't let some stupid discussion get in the way of your 1000th photo celebrations!!

Congratulations Jerrold . . . I have long admired many of your shots and drooled over them. Your signature dusk shots caused me to flip each time and I never tire of seeing them. Many of them belong up there with the best on a.net and would have made great posters and calendars. But what is even more important is the fact that you are such a wonderful person . . . I have enjoyed every single jaunt we made out there at Changi.

As we celebrate your 1000th shot on a.net . . . I think that I should also mention that Jerrold has the love and support of his family in pursuing this hobby. What wonderful folks you have behind you all the way!!!

Not one to normally care too much about any numerical milestone, I think this is an exception based on the fact that so many within that 1000 shots are nothing less than spectacular. So keep them coming Jerrold. Never mind if someone tells you they think its a fake. I've had all manners of insults thrown at me for some of my shots. My advice: each time someone hurls insult at your shots, treat it as a good reason to be an even better photographer!! And have fun doing it too.

Three cheers to a wonderful chap and his works of art!!
