As a photographer, I consider myself an artist. Ask yourselves this: If you are so opulently concerned with the amount of views your photo gets that you have to design a script to inflate your hit count, then you really should reconsider why you take pictures of airplanes in the first place. A.net isn't a dick-measuring contests, the screeners aren't hear to measure your size, this a place where you can share your work, and the screeners are there to make it the best it possibly can be. For me, this right here is what it's all about:
It doesn't bother me that the majority of the ten views on that picture are from me. Why? Because I enjoy looking at it. I enjoyed taking it, and I enjoyed post-processing it to its completion which is what you see above.
Sure the hits can be cool, and that 'top of yesterday' feels pretty good, I'll admit that.
I'll also admit, that when that picture made 'top of yesterday,' I was flipping out all over my dorm. But I wasnt flipping out because it was viewed most for that given period, I was flipping out because I knew alot of people were going to see it, but more importantly alot of people were going to ENJOY
it. Because that's what it's all about, enjoyment.
And all at once the crowd begins to sing: Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same
