Hey Alan, I just noticed you hit the 50 mark. ALREADY???
Took you a year to hit 20, and a week and a half to hit 50.
What are you smokin' and can I have some?

A year... NOT, First success was 5th Jan, Alan is a hard worker.. and pretty damn good with a camera as well!!
Looking through the 50 noting how many of those I was standing beside Alan, and he got the shot and I didn't.

Good work.. keep em coming!

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

yeah but he started getting rejections ages ago.
Alan is a lucky photog. He uploaded a virgin blue shot in the gilette livery and he's getting more hits than one I took about 3 seconds later.

Hey groan thanks mate .

Not smoking anything but just a lot of trips to the airport and buying some new gear helped a lot.
Also learning a lot from the guys in here made me a better photog then i used to be .
I still have a lot to learn but im trying.

Hello Alan,

Congrats on quickly reaching the 50 mark, I'd like to think its because of the lenses you use but I know its all down to the photographer.

Thanks for the great company and the many laughs we had that day. At least we managed to pinpoint who was to blame for the bad weather!!

Cheers
