Underrated?..........how do you come to this conclusion?
Not enough 'Pat on the back' threads?
I think Enrique actually meant overrated, you know we Spaniards are not very good when it comes to speaking tongues...
Thanks a lot, Enrique!! As others have explained, RR
has little or nothing to do with respect as a photographer. It is intended in fact as a way to show that you agree with or appreciate the opinions somebody states in the forums. As I do not use the feature and my posts are not that popular, I do not get a lot of "respect" back, no big deal really. I am more than happy with people liking some of my modest attempts at photography, I do not need much more
Some two years ago when I started to upload systematically and was lucky enough to get Top of the last 24 hours with my fourth try, I couldn't have imagined in my wildest dreams I would get so many views and so many congratulations e-mails, meet so many nice people (both by e-mail and in person), and actually had such a lot of fun trying to get a decent picture with an airplane in the midst of it spoiling it all!!
You all know about it, it is definitely worth it!!
Chad, Tim, Robin, Denis, Gkirk, Justin, ZakHH, Fergul: Thanks a lot, I wish we can meet in person soon!!
Zak and Thomas: Actually it was MY
PLEASURE meeting you guys, I hope we have the chance to see us again.
There are plenty a lot of other guys who have helped me along the way, I think they know who they are, thanks!!
And finally thanks to ALL
A.net photogs for their inspiration, keep them coming!!
P.S: Time to lock this shameful thread...
