Arrow My 1,000th Photo on A.net

Hope you don't mind me posting my own thread for this, but I just had my 1,000th photo accepted on A.net, some 15 years after I posted my first photo there. It's been a slow (I didn't really become an active uploader until 2010) and sometimes painful journey, but I'm glad I'm finally there Here it is - one of the lowest commercial jet approaches I've seen at Maho Beach:



and just for kicks, my first photo posted (don't laugh too hard):

Congrats on your 1,000th photo on Airliners.net!! That's quite an achievement and wish you the best in adding to that 1,000 tally! By the way, St.Maarten is on my "to do" B4 I expire list!! Cheers! T7 (god I am so envious of those sun worshippers under that US Airways A319 bird! Those tires must be at least 15 feet above their heads! )

Thank you. SXM is definitely worth a trip (or ten). You can tell if a plane will be really low from about a quarter mile out, and then you still have to take the picture with your adrenaline going. I'm just happy I didn't mess up

How many rejects did it take to get 1000 approved for posting?

great pic for your 1000th!! must be a huge buzz being on that beach!! Congrats

on a side note... i often wonder with these low approach pictures what the airline management must think?? has there ever been any pilots repremanded for approaches like this?? As an aviation fan i hope not, but gotta wonder what the general publics perception is and would it be viewed in a negative way?? lol

wow very impressive. I remember I tried to submit a couple photos in the past, all got rejected so I gave up after that lol. For you to have 1000 photos accepted, that is awesome.

Firstly - the positive comment.."Congratulations on your 1000th pic...that shot is a great SXM moment"
Now the negative....Airliners.net are a pain to submit pics to period.

Congratulations!!! To convert that in to my favorite format...that's close to 30 rolls of
36 exposure film, every frame. That's impressive!

About 998 rejections ;-) Seriously though, I'd estimate about 150.
