What's Your Average Views Per Picture?

Fri Nov 01, 2002 2:05 am

I photographed and posted my first aeroplane pictures less than two months ago. I was wondering what would be a good "average views per picture" to aim at.

Also, if I have for example a 100 views on a particular picture now, does it go up over time, or get lost among the 280.000 other pictures.

And lastly, should I just relax and take pictures, and forget about the number of views part? This is difficult since I've uploaded them for others to see in the first place.

This is my latest picture/re-upload:

Anyway, thanks for your input, and it's nice to be a part of this forum finally. Now where did I put my newly acquired password?

Yup, that's the one!

But as you want to know...
24 pics, 39669 views, on average 1652.9 views per photo.

Hi Peter

You can quickly see the averages for everyone with >100 photos on the site by using this link, if you don't know it already (and leaving it time to load)

http://www.airliners.net/about/

And yes, the hits do gradually go up with time, although increasingly slowly...

Paul (whose average was about 200 from 220 photos)

My next one is just over 1000, followed by 730, and because I shoot only GA it drops off rather quickly from there.

Here's my stats....

You currently have 13 photos in our database.

The large version of all your photos have been viewed a total of 44663 distinct times.

On average, a photo of yours has been viewed 3436 times.

So basically you have two diametrically opposite viewpoints with regards to stats. You can submit a great number of images and have a low views average, or you can only submit the cream of the crop and have a high average. Of course what we all dream of is a high number of images AND a high average. And that takes time, patience, hard work, and a little luck.

Have fun, and welcome to the club at A.net and remember the most important fact with regards to stats....... every single one of us started at 0/0 photos/views.

With a 3437 average views (It's gone up by 1 since my first post) I was just wondering what the highest average is on A.net?

Can Johan post or let us know what the high averages are, and who has them. Would love to check out their work?

Thanks

The "most successful photographer" would be the one with the highest number of photos AND the one with the highest average hits. If my only photo was the one that's at 4800 hits, then I would have a pretty impressive average... but it's just one photo.

So that makes Garfinkel the "most successful photographer" of the ones who have posted here. But as for overall most successful photographer, I suspect it's AirNikon, Andrew Hunt, or one of those other guys.

Shawn,
There are a lot more ways to measure success as a photographer. Having the most photos and the most views is ONLY ONE measure. After all, Al Gore recieved the most votes in the last presidential election but is not President. You can have more total runs in 7 games then your opponent in a World Series, yet loose.

It's all about your perspective, success is what you want it to be.

When are you going to come up here and shoot some pics?

I sure hope nr.2 will catch up with the cabin shot soon. I'd prefer my most popular airline pic to be a little more than colourful seats in a tube.

To divert this a little...

Is your picture with most views the best. Or are any of the pictures in your top ten deserving to be among the top ten?

The pictures I like best (talking about my own pictures here) don't get accepted. If I upload a great composition I get a "badcenter". If it's an athmospheric shot, i.e. I'm trying to convey the feel of the moment (like the sun going down) it,s badsoft (as if there was a lot of light and depth of field available which I didn't want to use).

My point is, how about a new screener who only looks at the photograph, not just at the plane, but the plane has to be there also. So a photographer screener, not an aviation photographer screener, I feel some really good photographs which deserve to be here are missing. The ones with no fence in the foreground and no lamppost cutting through the plane.

For me the most important element in a fantastic picture isn't the registration number, but is it for you and for this site?

P.S. I have read the previous screener discussions.  Innocent

...reason is, that I'm really proud of this one, and, this happens to be my absolute favorite type of aircraft...

I have noticed that many photos I think is interesting, in many cases seems to be too "difficult" for the average a.net-visitor, maybe of long-time-gone airlines, in hybrid c/s etc., while photos that I consider "average", catches far more views.

But personally, I prefer to have a lower number of hits for a particular photo, when I get some e-mails praising it instead...

...but, big deal, I do have a life in the "real world" too, so I see this as my hobby and amusement...

Mr. PP,

What are you talking about? The pics shown here are allready looked at by the vast majority of the users here, and besides, they allready have 3000+ hits, so how will the hits generated here change that?

And to conclude my post: what use is telling your average, while not showing examples?
