Why was the other one deleted?
I started in May, got 300 pics added, I guess that's ok for some one who lives two hours away from an airport that sees anything larger than a Lear. I used my old Kodak CX6330 (3.1MPs, 3X optical) up until Sept and now have a Kodak DX7590. I managed to get three photos in the top four of the day, only one of whiched desereved to be there.
I'll have to thank Brian Futterman and Dale Coleman, although they never really helped me directly, they're the reason I started started taking the camera with me when I fly. And Chris Ryan is responsable for editing two of my most popular shots.
2005 will hopefully be a good year. I just bought a Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM lens, which is incredibly sharp and I'm already very pleased with it. My goal for 2005 is to have a total of 50 shots in the DB by the year's end.

I think I can see why this thread was deleted and it stems from this obsession with statistics! I did not suggest deletion the other day but I did consider it. Long strings of my best, underrated etc are there for all to see....called the database.
Why the self plugging and what does it matter how many people view your pictures ?
If one person has enjoyed one of yours, that is great.
For this thread to be meaningful, let it continue but with the proviso that you cannot suggest any of your own photos - no self plugging !
My favourite would then be a night shot of a Tu.154 at LUX, underrated, best, photographer, whatever....I don't know the answers.
But I can see it in my minds eye, the most memorable of the year to me, and could find it if I wanted to on........the database
