    Thumbs up Getting some exposure ...

    Well,

    "Schmap", the iPod mapping application, asked me for one of my Chicago Air & Water Show shots, from the John Hancock Observatory, so they could include it in their events images.

    Hey ... good news ... THEY TOOK IT!

    Check out this link!

    Yes... the DCRP does it again! Who has more fun than we do?

    That is the second image I have been professionally asked for. If this keeps up, I may just have to take a few more!

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Cool Down & Dirty - play w/o pay!

    Nope, no pay, just getting published and name recognition.

    You know ... "My Goodness, that's a 'Don Schap' image!"

    I am cool with that part ...

    It's knowing where to stand ... even if it is over 1000-feet straight up!

    Congrats Don on a job well shot!!
    Recogition IS cool, I was sending 5 or 5 images in from school sports to our local webradio site, they asked me to send all I have so I have been sending 20 or 30 or so images from each game and they post them and archive them, even put my name on the picture for me LOL. I have run into people in the community, and have got emails from people telling me how much they enjoy looking at my pictures. That makes me feel good as I still think of myself as a picture taker and by no means a photographer.
    Again Don good job!

    Red face It's all a matter of choice

    Thanks Sean,

    Obviously, this was an unexpected return on my flickr posting ... like the shot of the USAF Cadet Chapel roof was. It's when it becomes "expected" that someone ought to start putting forth some capital to help you meet those expectations. I, certainly, am not a continual source for shots, that's for sure. I do like having people ask, though.

    Oh well ... thanks for the supportive comments. A moment in the sun, I suspect.

    Personally, I liked this shot a lot more ...

    Interesting Don, I wonder why they chose the shot they did over the above one? I agree I 'like' it better. Maybe becuase the first one you can read NAVY on the aircraft is why they chose it?
