This is my first post on this site and having just had my 100th photo accepted I thought I would share my thoughts on getting this far.
I have found it sometimes painful as my photos were not getting accepted in the beginning but this was due to my own fault and experience level.
I had been trying for ages to have a photo accepted and was happy when I finally broke through.
After reading many threads here and working hard on taking photos I am quite pleased to see my work improving and have chosen Air 2 Air to be my chosen path but will still take some ground to air photos.
So thank you to everyone who has given helpful advice on there own and other peoples threads.
It has made me go out and try harder and my skill level has grown and this site and its photographers have really helped.
I have learnt a lot about photo shop as well.
If there was one piece of advice I could give to a person trying to get photos uploaded here it would be this:
look hard at the photos here and ask yourself do your photos match the quality of those on the site before you upload and look up photos similar to yours so you can compare. Once you do this acceptance of photos gets a bit easier, well thats what I did anyway.
So thanks to everyone and there are so many photos on this site to enjoy.

Quoting Jawed (Reply 1): how can i see your A.net pics? can you provide a link?
He could but you can find them yourself by looking at the List of photographers, click on the "About Us" tab at the top of this page and either re sort alphabetically or scroll down until you get to photogs with roughly 100 uploads!
BTW he had a neat(but perhaps not so cool) Kittyhawk on the front page a couple of days back!
PS Gavin, a great collection of NON Airliners!
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!
