Hi all, haven't posted for ages but....
Every time I go to the forum, there is always a topic relating to Anet rejections. Majority of the posts are directed to Screeners on a personal basis. This really ticks me off.
I have one shot on Anet and it took some time before I had one of my pics on the database. It doesn't even have a a/c in it.
I still take pics (slides and negs) as I enjoy the hobby. My 'database' (my photobooks that is and framed pics) is over 600 now. However the point I want to make is that the majority of my early pics would be rejected by my standards now. I can actually see how much I have improved over time. (Or how bad my pics were before). I reject the majority of my pics from making it on my own database thesedays.
All in all I am happy with what I produce and enjoy them (and with friends too). If I get some time, and a scanner, I might submit some pics. If any get accepted I most probablywill gauge that as a measure of improvement.
There is a lot of good information and advice relating to photography, lets keep it that and not post on a personal basis.

Thanks Alphasierra and Codeshare, a good 3 cents worth.
Its nice to hear some people do a bit of self screening to get some improvements in there work and hobby. It is a good way of improving technique and getting the satisfaction of acheiving a better result when others show interest and appreciate your improved work.
