Congratulations!

... that's quite the start, and is going to be hard to follow up, but good luck, and keep 'em coming!

What a way to start off!  Smile

Well done on getting your first one uploaded, and being top of the last 24 hours.

That's some good competition you've beaten too - the MiG with the creative turbulent wake, 747 overhead view and a derelict looking A380.

Currently looking at about an 8 or 9 day wait to get a photo screened.

Now getting said photo accepted, that will depend on the quality. If the quality's good, then it will be accepted after having been screened, if the quality's no good, it won't be.

I think I just lucked out this time around because of the unique subject matter as opposed to the aesthetic quality of the image (there really isn't any). I'm guessing it's just functionally interesting to see two major runways shut down at a busy airport like SFO. I thought twice about submitting it but was rewarded this time around. Third time's a charm I guess--my previous two submissions didn't make the cut.

I deserved that quip but laughed my ass off at it.  Smile

BTW, sorry for bungling the screenshot from Flickr on my previous post. Here it is again:

Looking forward to more  Smile
