Interesting! It's a shot from back before I started doing perspective adjustment on wide angle shots.

"Mr. Pick currently has 43 photos in the database. The photos have been viewed a total of 43,743 times, for an average of 1,017.28 views per photo."

Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

It's been a good week. First, I find out Willie Brown is still alive when he posted his first photo in more than a year! And now this...Charles is alive too!

"Jonathan Hallman currently has 50 photos in the database. The photos have been viewed a total of 78,441 times, for an average of 1,568.82 views per photo." That happens to be about 100 views below the site average. People need to start clicking my pics!

So, this would be my "average" photo:

Actually John, your photos are more popular than mine because I have almost three times as many, and yet my average is about the same as yours.

I guess I suck, and Dennis's ratio of average views versus pictures in the DB is way, way higher.

Now, lets see who comments about the RP ratio, I have an idea who is mathematically inclined.

I have a higher ratio than yu-oo, I have a higher ratio than yu-oo!

Actually, I am finding two differnt numbers. From my profile, I get the 2,870.77.

From the main website "Photo Stats" I get 2758.43. Same number of photos, same number of views total. My guess my profile retains the total of views that includes photos that I have had deleted.

We all pale compared to David B. Davies. He has 9,333.87!

Talking Dennis is a GOD.

Well, we all talk about total views and averages, but I think what really sets some of us apart is the ratio of average views divided by total images in the DB.

If you have a whole shitload of images in the DB, your total average of views will generally be higher than those that have less pictures on the Site.

However, if you have just a few pictures in the DB, and a high average view number, then you are could be an RP rail photo GOD, like Dennis here.

And I am really surprised JRMDC did not bring this up earlier, because he is one of those mathematical geniuses that would notice the correlation.

But take a look at Dennis's numbers, they speak for themselves.

Thank you, thank you my adoring public.

A new Canon 5D Mk III will be considered a suitable sacrifice to me any time in the next 48 hours.

All I am in the mood to say, since it is late and I am tired, is that views also go with upload year. My average of 2275 is not well above the RP mean because I take particularly good shots. Instead, what has happened is that a number of years ago I used to upload lots of shots, and those shots continue to build and build in views. Of later I have been uploading about 20 year, not enough newer, thus lower view, shots to dilute the average too much.

Very roughly speaking, if I do nothing in 2013, my shots on average will pick up maybe 400 views each, and my average will be up over 2600, without any additional effort!

Davies' last uploaded, twice, in 2010, and once in 2009 and once in 2008, so his average just grows and grows. Were he to upload, say, 10 shots this year (on top of a mere 47!), his average would come tumbling down.

OK, Dennis, point me to the nearest bonfire and I will sacrifice that 5D3! You can watch a clearly marked box hit the flames as I do my chant.
