I know it is not a lot, but it has been an interesting learning experience.

Rafael,

I thought it was a great photo when I screened it, and I still think it is a great photo. I liked some of your other shots as well.

Rafael

That's a nice shot.

I expect you'll get someone come on and say 100 shots in the db is nothing (it happened recently on similar thread), but that's not true, it is an acheivement.

The first 100 are probably the hardest ones to get accepted. Now you've got there and you know what's expected, the learning curve should get a little less steep and your acceptance rate should shoot up. Congratulations!

Congrats on your 100th pic. The 'morning contrails' are very nice indeed !

Andrew said something very true, the first 100 are the hardest (well, the first 10 as well). It took me more time going from 10 to 100 than from 100 to 500 (and now approaching 1,000 is a breeze, but that is another story, another thread, another plug).

Your morning shots are very nice, Rafael. I wish I had done similar before 100 !

Yeah well done Quetzalcoats. Its a big thing when you get 100. When you first start you can struggle to get one accepted and think that 100 will be impossible. But as others have said when you know what to do it realy starts to become much easier....

Iv'e only been downloadoing to A.net for 5 months and have already got 178 photos in the DB (and not with a DSLR). And i have to say im still loving every minite of it.... Agree you will get the odd prat saying so "oh big deal I HAVE 1000" but most of the people here are very nice and will see that the first 100 are the hardest !!!!

Well done and happy photo's

I agree that the first 100 are the hardest one...I started to upload in March 2004 and I have right now 292 pic and it is very very very hard to get the 300 right now...some rejections  Sad

I remember the first days I was uploading and I was receiving the rejecting emails that I was shouting at home saying: WHY WHY WHY? These people doesn't understand photog and things like that...:D  Innocent

After these 292 shoots I have learnt a lot of photography and of photoshop too Smile/happy/getting dizzy Here is my best last shoot

Gracias Darío

Esa es mi favorita también.

A por las 200. claro!


Ever since I've started trying to figure out the rejection emails, I've improved my photos, and not only airplane photos.

It's nice to have a hobby that makes good things for you, and a site with high standards to measure you up to.

Quetzalcoatl,

Congratulations, and keep your shots coming!

Its nice to see another mexican photographer. We have very few pictures in Mexico while other countries flood the DB!
