2000 For Paul Markman

Mon Nov 15, 2010 10:36 pm

Big Congratulations to Paul Markman who has reached 2000 images in the database this evening. I have only met paul recently at MAN, but been following his work for a while.

Well done Paul, and see you up there again soon.

Hi Paul,

Congratulations for this big milestone ! And fate chose a for you rather unusual wide angle shot to be The One:

It seems I wasn't the only one waiting for this to happen - and some one thought it would go unnoticed...  

Here's to the next 2,000    !

Cheers,
Andrés

Big congrats to Paul for his 2000th. But let me just mention that with another photo he scored a top of the day and today was the 6th aniversary of him joining the site too. By far the biggest achievment of the day is his 5th million viewer! I cannot imagine reaching any more milestones on a single day. Outstanding.
Once again congratulations and keep up the good work, Paul!

Outstanding indeed! He is one of the most down-to-earth and approachable individuals I've come across on this site, and I've personally learnt a lot from his valuable photography experience, as have many others I'm sure.

Many congratulations for these achievements Paul, very well done!

Cheers!

Good Morning Paul,

The last weeks have been thrilling, following your frequent uploads. For me, the horses were very special.

Well, another magnificent milestone reached mate....congratulations!   

However, if you look a little deeper Paul has achieved another milestone simultaneously....his 5,000,000th hit/view!!!      
But you know you want more; this was all achieved on the 6th anniversary of Paul joining a.net   

Well Paul, you have achieved these milestones the same way you do everything else...with style   

Once again, congratulations mate!

Cheers

Quite an accomplishment, Paul!!
Here's one that, I feel, should receive a few more views. Truly beautiful. My hat's off to you Paul. Look forward to a few more chats behind the scenes at a later date, hehe.

And for a photographer who doesn't shoot cabins or cockpits (easy view multipliers), it's a great achievement. It isn't easy to capture millions of views with >95% exterior photos!

Well done, the vast majority taken at MAN too, yet he still manages to find something new.
Paul is a thoroughly decent chap too, one I am pleased to be able to call a friend, one I only met through this site.
He has helped so many people here that he deserves this tribute.
Hope to see you again soon
All the best

Thanks so much to all of you for taking the time to post here - it is a real boost.

I have to say that, whilst it is very nice to achieve a milestone like this, of far more importance and value is the contacts that I have been able to develop over the 6 years on the site with fellow photographers - many of whom have been generous enough to post here now. I would trade many photos and views for the enjoyable conversations and emails, all around the world. Such a great contrast with other aspects of everyday life. Life is certainly richer for all that.

All the best.

Paul

Hi, Paul.

Congrats on this "milestone conjunction" you reached.
I'd like to emphasize that Mick stated. It's a great achievement to have such a big number of hits/pictures with most of the pictures taken on a single airport. It proves you have an excellent photographer's eye I'd like to have someday.

My most sincere congratulations, Paul

Hat off to you Paul!

Some feat considering your work commitments and the fact that you are only able to regularly visit just the one field!

Haven't seen you for a while - in fact for so long I doubt with my goldfish-like memory I'd recognise you now!

Thanks once again for those very kind comments.

As has been said, the vast majority of my uploads are from my local airport. With the popularity amongst photographers of Manchester it does sometimes feel like a challenge to come up with something that will be of interest to the viewer. All I need is a little airside access. Any offers   ?

All the best.
