Default Got my first photo on the database !!

After nearly two years of trying, I've finally got my first photo on the database - and it's not even one of a normal train!
It's at http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=288222

Thanks to everyone who's offered help, advice and positive comments. Looks like I'm starting to get the message.

Now to see if I can repeat that.

Congratulations! The next shot will be a year, then 6 months, then 3, and pretty soon you will be uploading multiple shots per day. Actually, you will figure it out much faster than that.

Interesting bell curve there; mine's pretty much the same. Started in late 2004, but 2005-2006 were my big years. In 2007 and 2008 I pretty much fell off the radar. Hell, I've only taken one picture in 2009 and it was rejected.

For me, it's once or twice.

Congrats on not only getting your first shot accepted, but getting Top shot of the last 24 hours!
