Best AvPhoto Forum Post Of The Year 2005

Sat Dec 24, 2005 9:46 pm

I think the thread title is self explanatory.

My vote goes for this one, belonging to a thread titled "To Shoot Or Not To Shoot: The Toronto A 340", you might remember it. I think there is no need to explain why I love it (and no, this is not an attack against anyone, this is just plain funny)  Smile

I'm stupid, of course I'd have taken the photo.

I escape a burning plane with my life and I know I'd still be thinking "This would get Most Popular of the last 24 Hours!"

I'd also expect a badmanipulation rejection for using too much burn tool.

Imagine that. I'm facing death and I'd be thinking about Peter Unmuth.

Happy Xmas

Though I do think 100% acceptance IS an achievement, I think I'd be worried if I ever see that figure in my stats, because it would probably mean I am not trying hard enough to submit something out of the ordinary.
