Inspired by Psych's recent thread, I 'd like to see your one airliners.net photo that is the most overrated, and the one that you think is the most underrated. In other words, you don't grasp why it has received so much/so little attention in terms of hits.
Starting it off:

A thousander. Why? It wasn't even very new.

A rather nice and good photo by my standards, a classic aircraft, an obscure airline and an unheard of airport in outback Indonesia. Yet, it got only 200 hits or so initially.

Now let's see yours.

Not sure why it has so many views (over 1600!), as it wasn't a new scheme or any sort of first, and there were several side on shots uploaded earlier! In fact, it is the most popular photo of G-BNYS by over 700 views (no other shot has hit 1000 yet)

On a certain rival site, this shot is my second most-viewed, with over 3000 views. Here, despite the larger audience, it has just over 800, which suprises me as it stands out quite a bit! Perhaps because 'Morecambe' isn't a location that is searched!

Just a very ordinary side-on shot of a Ryanair logojet that already had plenty of uploads.

I know it's of two Aer Lingus A320s at DUB, unsurprising perhaps the low number of hits, but I love this shot for some reason, and it had a count of well below 150 for the first 3 months in the DB.

Regards,

Tim.

Hi there,

I can hardly speak of overrated since I am still in my first year here and I have not yet got a picture that made it to "top of the day", so...

... but here is my topper (and also the one I like best since I have always tried to match the special "black" advertisements of Porsche and this one came close - according to me  Smile - , but it has some faults though...):

I know there's nothing too special about it, but it was my first photo with the camera and it was at 1/30th, I expected more than 150 hits. I have way more overrated photos than underrated photos (it's about a 993 to 1 ratio!).
