Here's my contribution. It's actually not really representative, because I'm simply uploading my old stuff. There's only three months in between these uploadings.
However....I was pretty surprised ( with all the comments on this forum regarding the difficulties for acception ) that the early shots were uploaded so damn easely; you can see clearly the dirtspots and hairs on them...but I learned pretty fast to work with photoshop
On major remark is that it seems much harder for me to upload very recent work, taken with a Minolta and Kodak Ectrachrome; for some reason most of the scans really suck...I think it has something to do with the type of film, because my older slides are far better in result; both quality and scanning.
Of course, when it was uploaded, it was under my name, considering back then I was 38 . Later I changed it (although my dad did not want recognition, I wanted to do it after I 'came out', so to speak, to make it right) to his name..

My experience in this hobby is coming up to my 1yr mark. I started the hobby with a Fuji2800z digital camera, and now, I use the Canon D30. The short time has not bothered me. Though ALL my photos are at the same airport, I have tried to be different.
The left photo is my first photo uploaded. I can rember the day I took it. It was a bank holiday and it was really dull weather. I climbed my way up a muddy hill, took the photo, and then got asked to move by airport security.
The right photo is my latest photo uploaded. No problems to contend with, other then a fence. I have never used steps for any of my photos. This will seem surprising to some of the EMA regulars.

Well here are my first and most recent, although the most recent is actually an older file photo that I only recently uploaded. However there will never be any more Bombardier photos posted as along with 4,000 other employees at the deHavilland plant in Toronto, I have been permanently laid-off. The dream job of all time..... gone forever. S**t Happens.
My first two pictures, both uploaded at the same time - these were my first uploads ever, both accepted first time of trying. Both are now over half the database ago - whilst they're not current quality, I'd like to believe they were OK for the time. I also like to believe I can do better now!
ps: had 10 HQ from our visit @ HAM , all sent back re " need this extra kick of sharpness-->unsharp mask . did "unsharp" , all sent back re "low esthetics quality" . I dont understand the world anymore, but I am not complaining, I will improove. when are u planning to come over?
