Default My first year on RP!

The year of 2007 was my first year posting photo's on Railpictures. Since uploading my first picture on January 14, 2007 I have since added 152 more. It was a great year and I have improved so much, and being only 16 I have plenty of time to improve more. I am looking forward to another great year on Railpictures.

My first accepted photo got in on the first try also, not a bad way to start out.

I am sad to say that this was my most popular photo with 6,532 views to date. It only got that many views because someone put it on a website.

I have certainly enjoyed your offerings all year Walter! Us WV'ers gotta stick together! You'll probably end up with 500 photos a year after you're old enough to drive

I joined in February of 2007, and started racking up rejections left and right! My camera was a cheap 6MP Sony DSC-W30, and I didn't have a clue about anything past:

1.see train
2. throw up camera
3. push button
4 repeat #3 until train gone

Thanks to some studying on the boards, and the database, my first accepted photo was on March 19th, 2007

after 6 accepted photos, I switched to my current Canon S3IS.

From there to December 31st, I've had 44 more photos accepted, which this one being my last for 2007

Kinda funny, but my top 3 viewed photos have no locomotive(s) in the picture, so I guess I just suck at shooting moving trains!

My plans for the upcoming year are to buy a nice DSLR, some nicer lens, and learn to take decent photos!

Good stuff Walter, you have a keen eye for photography.
Despite some of the quarks, RP is still the best place to showcase your work, and you have done so very well.
