With the acceptance of this photo-
Photo © Tony Zeljeznjak
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... )
Cheers folks. Tony
