Many thanks for your replies and comments, I really appreciate your inputs. Thanks to Konstantin start the thread, a nice breakaway from the complaint threads in the forum lately.
A little history back to my humble beginnings, my first upload was back in 1999 but I only have a consumer flat bed scanner, and stopped upload after only 2 pictures got accepted,
not until Feb 2001 I restarted again and it was all prints film till Sept 01 I bought a HP
S20 slide scanner to upload slides. I first started digital photography in Nov 2002 when I bought a D100. The United B777 is my first photo with D100, which quite fortunatly it turned out well, albeit grainy at ISO 1600 (without neatimage in 2002

However, even with the convenient and readiness of digital, I am still interested in making high quality slides. I have been lazy to upload them, however since there are some keen support, I hope to assume the upload soon. It is fun to shoot, and collect slides, you can't beat the joy of looking at your well composed "full frame" slides after back from processing!
I am hoping a camera upgrade very soon in mid-2005. A trip to South America have been in my head for some time. There will be also re-visit of my favourite airports in due time.
I have also signed up with a few new airport to provide photography recently and hope I can upload some of the picture here soon. I have also started writing aviation articles, mainly in the airport development section with a strong linked Asian industry publication. Currently I am engaged in more public relation work dealings with the airport authority and the industry than photography, I hope to find a balance between reporting and photographing in the future. Thanks all again! It has been a plesaure to share my photos and participate on this very best website.
