Sorry for the confusion, I think you misunderstood exactly what I was saying. The views comment was dealing with Jim's two shots in particular (as a compairison between those two images) and is not applicapble to the site as a whole. I'll be the first to agree that views are not a good guage to determine how "good" a photo is. It is simply a function of how many people are compelled to click on your thumbnail to see the large size. Does that have anything to do with how good the image is? Sometimes, yes....but certainly not always.
