Just today I(after much consultation and help) got my first photo on A.net. I thought it might be interesting to see other users first photos. Here is mine.

Anyway, here is my first....back in 1999.

The quality still amazes me, considering the following: Taken with a 3MP point-and-shoot, editing limited to resizing, auto-levels and sharpening using "sharpen" (or "sharpen more", can't remember). Back then I thought that was more photoshopping than I'd ever do again.

You're not kidding.

My first one was this beauty from 7 years ago. I know - level, blurry, grain, size, contrast etc, etc. It fails on so many levels. If I remember correctly it was rejected first time. I shudder to think what the rejected one was like!

Interesting to look back at this image, prompted by this thread. Back in those days of naivete I had misunderstood the main upload page and believed (incorrectly) that the preferred upload size was 1600 pixels wide. That misleadingly worded page still remains after all this time (and a number of comments from me!). Hopefully sometime soon that can be changed.

Cheers.

It's not much, but it's something.  Smile

Well, at the time I was unemployed, and the only way I could keep myself from going nuts was spending time at the airport taking photos. There's something to be said about the deep blue sky you get on a cold winter's afternoon. I was just really psyched to get it in after six previous rejected attempts. I've been batting .500 ever since (and many were reworked and accepted).

I can still remember that day. It was freezing cold.

It was also a kind of special day as I just left behind me a long period of revalidation after a rather nasty illness which almost took my life. I decided in the hospital to combine my two hobbies, photography and aviation and just started taking pictures.

This picture was from my first session when standards were quite a bit lower  Wink
