While reading one of the other threads, I noticed that there was a photographer that added "less ordinary" remarks to his photos. I browsed around for a while, and found it to be really funny to read some of the remarks.
Do you guys think the same or, do you prefer the old usual "something arriving from somewhere"?

Regards,

Staffan  Big thumbs up

If you give a reason WHY someone should view a full-size version, you will get a lot of hits (if that's your purpose). Just saying the serial number, construction date, while useful, does not "advertise" your pic.

I always believe that a few words, or some background to the photo makes it that much more interesting for the viewer.

When I first set up my website, my "value proposition" to differentiate from other sites was to tell a story about the photo. To personalise it for the reader. I have found it to be fun, and much appreciated by the readers / viewers. I still try to add a comment to every photo I upload. And it is mot for the purpose of gettings hits!!

My thoughts.

I like the commentary in the remarks field, but get a bit irritated by poor English or excessive slang.

I've found that it's best *not* to get other people to upload your pictures for you .....

LOL!

If there's any interesting info. to be shared then I try to add it. Not to increase the number of hits, but because it adds a little extra interest, and I appreciate it when other people do the same. Otherwise, I usually comment on the location (because this is the question people ask me most) - along the lines of "lining up on rwy xx", "touching down on rwy xx". (i.e. dull)

I suspect this pic got extra hits from my commenting: "If you look beneath the nose, you can just make out spectators at the viewing park looking over the fence", because otherwise, it's a pretty ropey shot - but interesting to me, as it's the only time I've seen a Novair a/c.

This pic got me the most comments by email for the text I added (included here to save people having to open the full-sized image and thus increasing my views!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy)

"Lining up on rwy 24L for yet another hop over to Amsterdam (can't these F100s find their own way there and back by now? I should think they've worn a groove in the sky!)"

John Sweeney's comments are almost as dorky as he is. LMAO.
