I dont believe when many of you say that you dont care about hits.
When some of you folks are at the professional level and make money from your pics, views are what gets you sales. Websites wil often pay marketing firms by the CLICK (view) to the webpag fomr ads, and if you guys are good businessmen, you'd be jsut as hopeful of such exposure.
I mena, maybe you don't take it TOO seriously, but who can't look at one of their pics and say "Hey, wow, lots of views," or "Hey, look, top pic of yesterday," and get a big smile on your face and feel proud of your accomplishment.
If you DONT care AT ALL
about views, only THEN do I think there is something wrong with you. :-p
You guys here have lots of talent, ad I see NOTHING in this thread to get upset, angry or anything over. Let's jsut relax and have fun and take pics of planes. Le'ts worry about getting detained by cops and how we are going to get our next great shot. Life's too short to let this escalate.
Don't sacrifice the respect you have from so many of us that you got over time by making amazing photographs because of some little irrelevant comment on a message board.
