Your Most Over And Underrated Photos

Sun May 28, 2006 7:38 am

Inspired by Psych's recent thread, I 'd like to see your one airliners.net photo that is the most overrated, and the one that you think is the most underrated. In other words, you don't grasp why it has received so much/so little attention in terms of hits.
Starting it off:

A thousander. Why? It wasn't even very new.

A rather nice and good photo by my standards, a classic aircraft, an obscure airline and an unheard of airport in outback Indonesia. Yet, it got only 200 hits or so initially.

Now let's see yours.

Not sure why it has so many views (over 1600!), as it wasn't a new scheme or any sort of first, and there were several side on shots uploaded earlier! In fact, it is the most popular photo of G-BNYS by over 700 views (no other shot has hit 1000 yet)

On a certain rival site, this shot is my second most-viewed, with over 3000 views. Here, despite the larger audience, it has just over 800, which suprises me as it stands out quite a bit! Perhaps because 'Morecambe' isn't a location that is searched!

Seeing the stuff you guys have posted so far, I am almost embarrassed to post mine, however, it's a great thread, so here goes:


Most overrated, 1691 hits at the time of posting:

Just a very ordinary side-on shot of a Ryanair logojet that already had plenty of uploads.



Most underrated, 415 hits at the time of posting:

I know it's of two Aer Lingus A320s at DUB, unsurprising perhaps the low number of hits, but I love this shot for some reason, and it had a count of well below 150 for the first 3 months in the DB.

Regards,

Tim.

Hi there,

I can hardly speak of overrated since I am still in my first year here and I have not yet got a picture that made it to "top of the day", so...

... but here is my topper (and also the one I like best since I have always tried to match the special "black" advertisements of Porsche and this one came close - according to me  Smile - , but it has some faults though...):

... and this one has a less interesting aircraft (I assume), but I like the evening sunshine so much (but it has attracted the least hits):

I know there's nothing too special about it, but it was my first photo with the camera and it was at 1/30th, I expected more than 150 hits. I have way more overrated photos than underrated photos (it's about a 993 to 1 ratio!).

Overrated - I definitely don't mind that it has over 11,000 views, but I'm surprised it got that many. It's really just an ordinary cabin shot:

Underrated - I really love this shot, and wish it had gotten more attention. It took quite a bit of foresight to plan where to get the best shot from, and luckily I was rewarded with the whole Opera House in all its glory making the perfect backdrop!

Thanks to Peter for picking up on my previous thread.

I've had a quick look through my photos and it really is an eye-opener to how standards have changed over the time I have been uploading  eyepopping .

But my current choices would be these:

I was very glad to see this one do well, but I never thought it would do that well. Evidence for me of the way the site structure can have the effect of boosting hits for some photos (this got into the 'Top Rated' section as a number of people commented and voted for it).

I have a real soft spot for this photo, because it took about 4 attempts before the screeners allowed it in. It was one from my early days here and I was very proud of the panning effect with a consumer lens at the time. But is has attracted way less than an average of one view per day.

Cheers.

Paul
