            Well, 2004 was the inital start of my aviation photography part of this great hobby. It all started in March, I was too excited and wasted my money on a 2MP camera not doing any research or asking anyone, just bought something cheap after I read around on this site from people saying that they used 2MP cameras and they got shots accepted. So me being stupid and absent-minded didnt even check the features of the camera, and just went for something cheap on ebay! I later learned it had NO optical zoom either. Oh well, Id have to deal with it.... Id spend hours of friday afternoons and evenings going to JFK/LGA after school taking shots, mostly I would take quick snaps due to my fear of getting caught by police! I would come home, upload and get reject, after reject, after reject. Sometimes I would hate myself for making such a stupid mistake. I then realized that maybe i have to do some POST EDITING via photoshop, neatimage etc. I STILL DONT DO THAT!!! too lazy i guess, or just didnt care.
            Well, then I took the camera on my flight to ORD, destined and determined to get a shot accepted.
            FINALLY I DID, and my first and only shot of the year!!!!!!!!


            Hopefully I get more shots accpeted in 2005 with my 2MP, and Im trying to get a Olympus or FZ-10 whichever I find a better deal on! However this year im determined that I can do it with my 2MP and get more shots. I havent gone to the airports since June, but I'm determined and therefore going to LGA tomorrow after school to put into practice what I have learned since March!!!

                          I took this image quite recently, and thought it closed out the year nicely, a perfect plane for DFW!

                              I started in March and had exactly 800 photos on the site as of Dec. 31st, I guess that's ok considering I used a $180 camera for 600 of the shots and live two hours from the nearest commercial airport. It's amazing to see how much better the quality of my pictures are now when compared to what they used to be (although none of them are that great).

                              Most popular:
                              Favorites (I was hoping these ones would get screeners choice, but I guess the screener didn't care for them):
                              Underrated (this one has 22 times more hits at another large aviation photography site):

                              Hopefully we all have a successful '05.

                                Favourites: they change by the day, but here are the current ones:

                                (for the subject matter, not the quality of the shot -- greatest fighter of all time) and


                                Underrated: hard to say but perhaps I'd hoped for a bit more from this one:
