I have broken the 500 photo mark here on Anet.

It took me a little less than a year and a half to do this. For those of you who struggle to get your photos accepted here I urge you to keep trying. LEARN from your mistakes, learn about scanning and Photoshop (or whatever program you happen to use...) If you just chuck it and go off to upload to another site that will post anything then you will not challange yourself and you will not improve your photography skills at all. I urge you to use sites like this and Plane Pictures.net (a very helpful crowd), to improve to the point where you are regularly accepted. (When I started here I had the typical 95% refection rate. I now have about a 90% acceptance. And the ones that are rejected are usually because I did something goofy in processing. (or I tried to sneak one by the screeners that I liked...  Smile )

Cheers folks. Tony

Well done, Tony! It's always been fun to see the great variety of subject matter in your photos, from the airships to the naval aircraft, from the Cessnas to the Boeings. I'm glad you haven't gotten fed up with all the Southwest 737s at SAN--Keep the photos coming! Hope you're up to 1000 or more shots in the database by the end of the year.

Best,

Edward

You can always rely on me checking out your shots Tony,
even the ones you try to sneak past the screeners...

BAe 125 or HS 125 I believe (as one of your other photos of the same bird states as well)

Figured I'd let you correct it since the correction would take effect sooner.

Congrats, Tony!

Your advice to new shooters is right on the money and your current photography is top notch.

I've used my snow shoes lately a lot more than my camera. Hope to reverse this situation with a visit to Sun 'n Fun in 6 weeks or so. Until then I'm envious of that nice sunlight I see in your great photos! Keep it up.

Congratulations, Tony!

I just love your shots from 'it never rains in California', especially I like your shots of planes 'in the air' where they belong, like the Mexican BAe 125!

By the way you and me are in the same boat, yesterday I've got my 550 th shot accepted since January 2002:

Would really like to meet you in person during my next trip to California.
All the best

Tony, congratulations on passing your milestone.

I must also say thank you for convincing me to go out and buy the fuji 6900z which I believed that you were using at the time. It was these to photo's that convinced me that this was an OK low price camera. I have had agood reasonable acceptance rate since using it.

One of the problems I have when photographing business/executive aircraft is that often the paint scheme includes several narrow horizontal lines. I get jaggies from scanning these images, and I see that you (and I assume everyone else) has that problem also.

Even the most careful editing cannot eliminate this problem. So I wonder if that is why our photos that display this scanning artifact are accepted at A.net?

Please don't get me wrong, Tony. I like your shot of XA-HNY above, and I think it belongs on A.net. But when you see suggestions lately that a person should rotate their image within a tenth of a degree, the screeners need to be reminded to guard against being perceived as arbitrary.

In other words, jaggies in the picture, often OK. Image not straight by a tenth of a degree not OK? Gimme a break!

I think the screeners are doing a great job, and I have said so often. But as they judge our work, we judge theirs-and there is NOTHING WRONG with keeping them on their toes.

Oh, I suppose that it was inappropriate for me to tack this onto your thread. But you presented such a great example of the problem, I couldn't resist. And really, it is relevant. None of this diminishes your 500 photo accomplishment. Congratulations again!

Tom- The jaggies in thin cheat lines are something that drive me up a wall. At least one screener has told me that they are rather forgiving of these jaggies as they are just something that happens in the sharpening process.

Anyone who has a fix to the problem, PLEASE let me know!!  Smile

Also, thanks to all of you for kind comments. I'll drink a beer for each of you. heheheh.
