I had someone call me Ken the other day on a comment, I was like "Who's Ken?" I'll have to look through my comments, may take a while.

Sometimes the better shots and comments come off an unexpected shot like this one.

I look at the comments as respect and kudos from your peers. That in itself means a lot to me and encourages me when I have down days regarding my shooting skill.

Well, I wouldn't say that was why he didn't get out of the way, but more the reason he was in the way (if that makes sense). The only reason he got killed was because of the fact he took the time to flip off the train. I just went off what all the locals were telling me. I was actually at a friends house down the street and heard the train go through about an hour before I even got there, and was confused when I saw an EOT as I drove over the tracks, so I investigated and thats about all I found out, then I took a picture and thought I would share it.

I believe AB2's lone comment on this rarely viewed photo is my favorite simply because I find it ironic that he says "nice work as usual" when in fact back then I had only recently started trying to get serious about taking pics and was rather clueless as to the finer points of camera usage.

Thanks AB2!

It is a mystery how some shots get high view counts and no comments.
A few of mine are that way.

So, of course, I'm very grateful when someone takes the time to write. It means your work meant something. Those comments are precious (And they mitigate the low view counts!)

It was pointed out here how we put favorites on our profile yet didn't comment about. Guiltily, I went back and did so to the one of mine that didn't have a million already.

I always try to comment on how the photo moved me and the photographers ability, because that gets closer to why we do what we do here.

Thumbs up

The one photo I got a comment on was from Ron Flanary. I was floored by the comment, since Ron's work has been seen in everything from "Trains" to "Railroad & Railfan"

The most comments I've gotton on a shot were with this one...and again another "all-star" cast. John West, Michael Allen & Janusz Mrozek, who both helped with cropping suggestion in the forums, and Joe the Photog.

I can think of several examples, but this latest one really home:

Only one comment on my favorite shot I took that day, though the comment (and notably it's author) really made me glad to read it.

Similarly, some of the guys commenting on this photo, as I rarely see them commenting and hold their work in such high regard:

Of course, the "best" per say (rather, most shocking in this specific case) would have to be the bottom comment on the following:

Someone is placing me on far too high a pedestal, in my opinion...after all, no matter what, I can always be better, and there will always be people out there whose work makes mine look like family vacation shots from Disney World...
