First 2 Photos Accepted!

Thu Apr 07, 2011 3:03 pm

I just had my first two submissions accepted yesterday! With help from folks over on the Photography Feedback forum, my initial rejections were corrected, resubmitted, and are now part of the database.

I also received another e-mail from A.net yesterday saying that with 20 posts under my belt, the Respected Users features have been unlocked--"Use it to recognize other users that you believe deserve your respect. Other experienced users can give you similar recognition." Forgive my ignorance here, but what exactly does that mean?

Congrats! Always nice to welcome another member to the ranks of photographers who have had work accepted here on A.net! Love the Growler shot, a few months back, my first shot in the DB was a Growler shot at Nellis as well. Look forward to seeing more in the future!

In a nutshell, nothing.

Thanks NPeterman. I consider getting a photo accepted by A.net to be a real achievement. As a life-long airplane enthusiast but just a novice photographer, it really legitimizes my photography skills. Believe it or not, I've been bragging about it to family and friends!

dumbell2424. Really?? Is that sarcasm, or do you believe that feature has no merit? I know I love to get a pat on the back sometimes.

Congrats.....and I got my first one published last week. It only took me 14 attempts. I've already learned a ton from the rejected photo feedback and this forum.
