    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:

    Congratulations Cary!! If I could only get more than one that would be awesome! I know with time it will change, but for now all I can say is wow! I can only hope to reach that point one day!

    First photo: grainy, bad composition, blue cast, yellow cast, cast CAST!

    Well done Cary, I'm a huge fan of your work (not just aviation) and this milestone is deserved recognition. Bravo!

    And guys, please stop bringing up color casts. I think it's a little on the racist side.

    Dunno if this is second degree, but I want to make it clear that I was speaking STRICTLY on a photography level!

    As I said in the FB post... Hip Hip, Hooray!

    (although, let's have some fun... wouldn't it be hilarious if his 1,000th gets less hits than his 1st?

    !!! Kidding... !! you guys are rough... it was a little joke? no? hehehe... Well, what can I say... Cary, you are one of the photographers that I look up to and always strive to match the quality of your photos and never succeed! Thank you for pushing me to always put my best effort and for your tireless work to promote and knowledge of the hobby and photography in general!

    Oh come on Manny, your photo quality is top-notch, and you've been killing the Top 5 recently (and right now, too). But thanks for the kind words :)
