No offense taken Dan.
(but no, we don't get tired of looking at the skyline...
It's a one-trick shot as so many of them are.
(I even get bored looking at some of the St. Maarten pix these days -and others.. unless someone figures out something new with them.)
If I want to look at Great Shots, I usually just do a search on Glenn Alderton or Mark Garfinkel; I tend to see the editor's selection anyway, or they wind up getting posted on here.
Alot of the older stuff in Editor's Choice would never go in there today obviously, and some might not get into the database at all... (as nice as those shots are...); Its tough just trying to keep up with the general acceptance curve.
As Big Phil indicated, this was just a straight copy from Chris Sheldon... of whom we're fans.
Dmitry... most of our cops are good guys..or at least ok. (except one I can remember who was barely in the homo sapien category ...)... they'll just check you out at a distance...but once a "concerned citizen" has reached for their cell phone... they're tasked...and you're going to be put through the nonsense.
If you don't have a press pass, law enforcement ID, or airline credentials...the best thing to do is throw a matchbox or Hotwheels aircraft model in the trunk of the car...(Phil even had a copy of Airways magazine on him) that and an expensive camera do the trick...as soon as they do their search they get back in their cars and call to base: " false alarm - these guys are geeks "
Seriously, you do want them to remember you... for the next time, if you were in a place you had every right to be.
