A Bit Of Fun. Plug Your Most Dull/boring Photo

Wed Jul 20, 2005 6:40 am

Well we have plugged are best photo's. We have plugged out highest hit photo's. And we have plugged our first A.Net photo's.

Now its time to hold your heads in shame and show the world your most dull,boring and tedious picture. A picture you look at and think.... (1) why did i take this. And (2) I wish my name wasn't at the bottom of this masterpiece.

Picture quality need not apply. Just general lifeless photos. Remember to put a comment as to why your picture should be hung in the dull hall of fame...

Anyway here's my offering

Im so happy with the result of this picture. Just look at the stunning color of this flightline machine. Not only that but the fact its the standard Myrtle ave view as well. And to top it all off its a fabulous side on view with a gray background.... Hmmmmm it really sets the world on fire this one.  Smile


Sorry this is just a piece of fun in an otherwise not so great couple of weeks for me.  Sad

Uploaded at the wrong size, taken in the wrong lighting. Clearly not the best subject - one hundred and something views in 9 months. But it's all a learning process.

But then it is the only photo of N270HC in the database so yes, could I go back in time I would upload it again  Wink

I don't know where to start in my catalogue of tedium but this one always make me cringe. I suppose cropping to 3:2 instead of the 4:3 that camera produced might have helped but I hadn't sussed that out back then. Anyway, it would still have been a stinker Smile

Well, I can't see much wrong with any of those pictures. After all, this is a database, not an art class! lol. Unfortunately most of my shots are "bland and boring" so I can't really find one to demonstrate - and at the moment I can't seem to see ANY pictures on A.net  frown

I agree - I love aircraft and I don't find any pics on here boring.

Most of my accepted ones are boring - Living near a regional airport, boring shots are common!

Stop being so harsh on yourselves people!! Big grin

Quoting LHRSIMON (Thread starter):
Now its time to hold your heads in shame and show the world your most dull,boring and tedious picture.

Ok, that's easy, just go to my most popular photo Sad

Quoting LHRSIMON (Thread starter):
(1) why did i take this.

The only reason was that they seemed popular on Airliners.net  Wink Before that, I never even considered taking a shot of the cabin of an airliner. I still don't see the attraction myself, but there you go, each to his own. Yes, I will take and submit more if the opportunity allows, it's all part of the aviation scene that people obviously are interested in.

Quoting LHRSIMON (Thread starter):
2) I wish my name wasn't at the bottom of this masterpiece.

Well, I'm not actually ashamed of it, but it is a bit annoying that it is so popular, when many of my better quality, better taken and more aesthetic pictures languish on sub-100 hits. Also my motive for taking, editing and submitting is suspect (i.e. I knew it would be looked at).

Now before anyone says anything about worrying about hits, I know they are not always the measure of a good photo and I think shots like this are a good example of exactly that. In reality, I don't worry about the hits, which is a good thing seeing as I concentrate on the well-below par hit attracting area that is general aviation!  Smile It is interesting to see what other people like to click on, though.

Apart from that, most of my photos fall into the boring side-on ground-view type anyway, I'm afraid. I don't really have much choice though, it's usually all the combination of opportunity (limited), equipment (point-and-shoot guy here) and talent (I'm a documentative, not imaginative kinda guy) allows me to take!  Smile

Yes, I'm boring Sad

Best regards,

Jim

It certainly is far less boring than a dull colourless shot of the back of seats and heads.  Smile
