1119 now. Not too bad. I consider everything above 2000 as good. Everything above 10,000 VERY good and everthing above that is just whoohoo Big grin

Congratulations on the first accepted shot. Welcome to the club.

If your photo gets into the database, it is good! The number of hits it gets, is a measure for its popularity, which is not the same as "good"  Smile Popularity is dependant on many many factors...

PS: Congrats on your first acceptance! I hope there will be many more! Nice action photography!

Best regards,

And you should be!  Wink Those 'Extra's' are by far more difficult to photograph than an average 737 on final, at least that is my experience.

Well done Willie!

Kind regards, Martijn

Very good shot!

My first shot was accepted in November, and your shot already has over 1/4 the amount of views that mine has had to date. That is definitely a decent number that you have.

Congrats, and a really nice first shot.

If you want to have a higher success rate you might want to consider uploading in a smaller size. at 1024 pixels wide small flaws in an image will not be as noticeable as in a 1600 wide image.

Congrats and welcome!  bigthumbsup 

Remember though, it's not all about the number of hits your photo gets...that's what I keep telling myself anyways.  cheeky 

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the outcome of a hundred battles.
