That third one now resides on my desktop background.

Nice shots, dude.

And all at once the crowd begins to sing: Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same

I like the second one better than the third, though.

Huh?

The 2nd and 3rd photos are the same. Here are their respective links. Unless I am missing a microscopic detail, they are the same.

(In any case, the shots are nice).

I agree with Phil. The composition of the second one is far more pleasing to the eye.

Exactly. The third should have been rejected for badistance, but the second one has amazing framing.

I also like number two better than number three. Number three is poorly composed but number two, wow!

Yeah it is those extra little effects that make ALL the difference. Much better than number 3. Like night and day.

If I were a screener, I might have been tempted to reject number one as baddistance...

Straight from the horse's mouth!


Hey guys,

Thanks for your compliments and such. I'm buying a Canon S1 IS or Kodak DX6490 soon so hopefully those won't be my first shots accepted!

As for those three, Stefan, thanks for your kind words. I uploaded 27 and those were the "million dollar shots" that made the cut. I'm trying my best to get the other 24 up to par with the rest as I'd hate to see them go. Pretty much all of my photos from SXM are the not-so-common ones (the sailboats, mountains, water, etc) and will probably be burned in the badmotiv pit. For example:
http://forums.fs2002.com/uploaded/apr04/Z_NEWSM_3.jpg
http://forums.fs2002.com/uploaded/apr04/Z_NEWSM_1_2.jpg

Who knows, maybe I'll be registered to these forums tomorrow so I won't have to use Futterman as my personal poster.  Laugh out loud

Catch you guys later,
Chris

Oh, and one more thing Phil and Wietse, … I'd have to go with the third one. Big grin
What the FUTT?

SARCASM runs rampant here lately. I can't wait to see yall go there and share pics. Yall definitely have unique styles - gotta say though - most of those crappin' on Chris's images have shown me nothing.

Christopher - nice images.

Your critics - a few of them are stuck in ONE DIMENSIONAL Airliners.net nirvana...

Wietse would tear it up at St. Marteen -

I'm waiting to see it - it's simply a matter of time...  Big grin

Just jokin' about the "mofo" thing Peter - remember from a few years ago?

And just thinkin' about what you could do with your new camera on that beach...

Didn't intend to confuse or offend you.

Oh well, too late now...

Just to clarify: I think those are great shots and I prefer those over the "plane on the beach shots". It was just too good a joke not to join in on it ... Big grin

Peter-

It's your turn. Go there and show us how it's done !!

I've admired your photos for a long time. Get out of the cold - go to a warm, tropical place and show us what you can do with your new camera !!  Smile

No way Peter -

One day you will grow tired of cold weather and you will go there. And you will have fun. And you will walk around for a while. And you will love it. And finally, you will show us how a cool old MOFO from Vienna captures images of aircraft kicking up sand...

Sounds kind of different eh'?

I would love to go there but I have not the time, camera or money.

Time will tell...
