Photo Comments: Nice Or Funny Examples?

Sat Sep 17, 2005 12:01 am

We all know opinions were differing on the Photo Comments option. But now that it's been in place for those who didn't disable it, maybe it's a good time to look back at the positive aspects:

Who has received truly funny, inspiring or very nice comments?

Apologies if this is not the appropriate forum. Also I don't intend to start a plug-fest (don't click the pic), but maybe a little Friday fun is OK?

For me personally, in the "funny" category, it would be this one: Big grin

The same pic also led to a very nice comment in my opinion, when someone wrote "This photo reminds me of the many "happy landings" I had on the airport of Aruba. Whish I was there now. (a little homesick airplane lover)"

Anyone else with nice "Comments" experiences?

Nothing wrong with that, Ward... Friday-fun is appreciated throughout the week, with so many 'a bit too serious' threads.  duck

I got a real nice comment on a triple-seven shot I took. I rarely get the opportunity to shoot 777's, so it felt really good to get a compliment on that particular shot. I like this feature!

Does anyone know if there is a way to access your comments without actually hitting the picture yet? I know there was talk of getting that implemented.

Take Care

Yes, with the fiasco a few days ago, I think a friday funny thread is very much in order.

1 of the comments :-

I was camping in the next field at Fairford,and heard the take off. Absolutely wonderful, Trouble was I was cooking a barbeque at the time,which actually caught fire,when I got distracted by the sheer beauty of the aircraft. A lot of very burnt food with a barbeque and a cork board no longer in use. A very good RIAT though.


Interesting comment!!!!

This is my favourite photo from my recent LA trip. And I'm very glad it got some comments.

One I find funny because of the grammar (but still very much appreciate):

And this one made me quite happy:

Great lighting, perfect angle. Wish I could take photos like this.

You missed the point there my friend!!!!

The thread is about comments that have been made about the photo not the photographers uploaded comment! - nevermind!

That's it. This shot takes the cake. There will be no other picture taken,ever, like this one.
You won dude. You're the man!
On a serious note, "most excellent shot"!
Peace

All in all I am enjoying the comments feature, though I did not think very much of it at first. I wish I could answer to some of them personally though.

Cheers

My profound apologies. The "comments" section is kinda new, I didn't realize that's what you were talking about.

That photo is my favorite "CAPTION" of all time.

Sorry 'bout dat.
