I've just had my one-millionth (distinct!) view in the last couple of days, so obviosuly that's a big milestone for me, and I wanted to post a message to say thanks to everyone who thought some of my photos were worth a closer look. But not wishing to plug my own photographs, I thought I'd mark the occasion by selecting a few photos by other photographers that I particularly like. The lesson here is that regardless of how many photos you have, and how many people have looked at them, there's always someone else who can teach you something!

Chris.

Chris,
you do good work, very very good work buddy. I just passed the 900K mark (your message inspired me to check)- so im hot on your tail- watch out!  Smile
some items of observation:
look at the shots you put up- look at the views/hits- amazing how little some of em get isnt it? also- i uploaded 25 shots, mostly from my MIA/FLL trip last week- been in the que for a week now and i've noticed that the que is backing up bigtime- must be some system issues- but as my FLL/MIA shots come in, i'll catch you at a faster rate- so start uploading some more now!! hahahaha

 Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Damn, I thought I'd be the next millionaire, you sure shot past me

Ah well that will teach me to upload low hit scoring shots  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

But the race is on  Smile/happy/getting dizzy between me and ADG, I am slightly in front.
