Hey guys,

I just want to say a big 'Thank you!' for 10 million views, a milestone reached just a couple days ago.  

One of the photos that takes a major share in those 10 million:

By coincidence the 3000th photo got accepted at almost exactly the same time:

Congrats Thierry!
I just went past 5 million this weekend. Maybe if I wait long enough (very long!) and A.net won't shut down, I'll hit 10.000.000 too.

Overachievers. I just reached 500,000 a couple weeks ago.     

Seriously though, congrats to you both.

So it happened last night.

Perhaps I shouldn't really be posting in Thierry's thread, but I don't like to start my own, and I do want to say:

Thank you all for 10 million views, too!   

It's interesting that Thierry and I have a very similar number of photos, my 3000th should be up before too long.

Thierry has five 'hundred thousanders', I have only two, with #2 about to overtake #1 after a chase of almost five years.

By the way, #1 was only accepted by Johan Lundgren 'with a warning' for quality, a phrase that some of you will surely remember.

I find it hard to believe that the average number of hits of my photos is 3,356. I mostly shoot fairly unremarkable photos of fairly unpopular subjects. But I guess these are 'steady sellers', whereas the 100th photo of a KLM MD-11 at AMS initially gets more hits but soon doesn't turn up in a top position in a search any more.

Well, just a few thoughts to make this somewhat bearable for you I hope.

Peter

No worries about the thread, Peter!

Congratulations on the milestone!

I believe we achieve about the same numbers as we both shoot similar stuff with similar diversity, e.g. civilian airliners, military stuff, museum exhibits, ...

So let's see who achieves 20 million first...  

Thierry

I'm pretty sure that will be you, Thierry, as you're sitting in cockpits on a regular basis  

This oldie is my 3,000th.

The only thing is surprising me - why it is just 10 mln, as you deserve in times more   Always happy to see your works.
