Bob, I posted the Angela F. because she was next in my alfabetical shoebox. Wink.and I think it is the ship that makes me look at a picture, but indeed sometimes you can see what a photographer has been trying to achieve and where he succeeded. Last week I posted a shot of one of the Maersk triple E ships, virtually similar to one posted a bit earlier by somebody else, but because of my position, the light and the possibly my post processing programme and the hardware, the shot looked quite different. I put comments to that respect in my description and invited comments to make a comparison between the two shots. Most likely nobody cared to read it as there was no reaction at all.

I am surprised that nobody so far has been honest enough to tell that the first thing they look at is the number of comments that a picture has generated.  Wink

The number of views to even a mediocre shot explodes when someboday places a comment, so somehow it is factor that significantly counts....

This morning I posted three shots, one got a comment and has already been seen quite a lot, while another shot showed a (to me much more interesting) ship for the very first time on the site, and the number of views are far less.....

I agree with you pieter.

Perhaps admin might fix it to show no of "likes" under the thumbnail as is done for hits, comments.

At the moment you have to click your own picture to check for any "likes" - thereby adding to the hits total!!

Over to you pieter.

BTW thanks for the useful info. you usually include with your uploads.

Mike, I think I once heard that one's own hits don't add to the tally...(you can also look at "my photos" and then "comments to my photos" which will help you to deal with comment to older shots)  And thank you for the comment on the info. I belong to the posters who think if there is nothing to tell about a ship, then there is no reason to post a picture of it Wink and I am also in great favour of adding the desription section next to the thumbnail...may be in future, who knows.

Mike Griffiths you are right. the composition of the photo is rather ignored for checking the photos with the highest number of comments and taken by some photographers. Hence i took a photo where a lighthouse appeared in that photo and didn't get much views. I'm talking abt a old lighthouse.

Food for thought - very interesting research question!

1) Light and composition / orgininality
2) Location
3) Type of vessel

Regards,
Oliver.
