Congratulations Paul for reaching this milestone, and especially for doing it with such a different and interesting picture:

Your helpful attitude can only be commended and should be a real example to all of us - I think it is safe to say that you will be hard-pressed into finding someone in this forum that Paul has not helped at least once!
Of course he has also developed his particular photography style, known by some in MAN as the 'worm eye's view':

Congratulations and well done Paul,

That would be a very safe statement, I know he has certainly helped me, more than once.

Thanks Acontador, for starting this thread. And let me join the celebrating choir, singing his praise, very much deserved. He is such a gentleman and has helped me countless times and inspired me to continue here.

Paul, I wish you many more sunny days at MAN (like Dec 23 last year!) /Frippe

Gentlemen.

I really appreciate you all taking the time to post a comment in this thread (thanks for that too Andres) - it is very much appreciated. I can't for the life of me work out what these references to me writing a lot are all about  wink . Reaching the celebrated 1,000 photos on the same weekend my daughter celebrated her 10th birthday was great.

Many of the people I have got to know in my three years at A.net have contributed above, which is very rewarding for me. It is the contact with you guys that makes my time spent in front of the computer worthwhile. It remains a pleasure to have photos accepted here, but I always feel very pleased to think that any small help or clarification I have been able to offer has benefited others in their efforts to improve their photography and/or editing.

Thanks to you all for your encouragement.

All the best.

Paul

Couldn't agree more!! Big grin  bigthumbsup  Paul helped me get my first three photos into the DB a few years ago and since then we have been very good friends. I had the pleasure of meeting up with Paul and Mick Bajcar Jid and Simon one Saturday in MAN and what fun we had. We must do it again Paul and soon  bouncy 

So what photos do I use, well we have to plug 'Dr Worm'

Congrats on the milestone and I'm sure it would have been double that if you didn't help people with their shots most of the time.
I hope to see more from you seen as your shots are very enjoyable to view.

Let's hope 2008 is a good year for the site and its membership.

Paul,

As you know I haven't been doing much with A.Net recently and it is a very long tome since I posted in the Forum. However I really did want to add my congratualtions on your 1000th accepted shot. As has been said by many others your pictures are excellent and have quite a unique style. Your willingness to help and encourage others also sets you apart from the mainstream and I am fortunate to be one of those that have benefited from your experience.

Very best wishes for the future.
