Okay, this has me stumped... My boy DevonT just told me that one of his images (uploaded last night) has 311 views already! That's unheard of, isn't it? In less than 24 hours, and it's not even entered into a challenge?

Here's the one I'm talking about... I'm just curious, has it been linked into a thread somewhere?

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/58923/thumb/371224.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/58923/thumb/371224.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

See ... when he told me he had 311 views, I thought he had to be talking about THIS one:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/58923/thumb/370114.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/58923/thumb/370114.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

:-)

Kids! They beat you at everything. It's so annoying.

BTW, they are both beautiful. He's good.

Heck, I donno... all I know is, as soon as I saw it I was motivated to click on it, and not that many thumbs motivate me to click. It's an immensely appealing thumbnail.

Good shot, Devon!

Shhh... I'm trying not to admit that I'm annoyed that he so easily gets more attention then I do. ;-)

that's nuts!

(get it... squirrels... nuts... oh nevermind)

Devon, I am just so PROUD of you mate, as this is a great shot. I see your Dad seems just a tad jealous of all the attention you are getting mate. (Just joking)
I love this image, as it has a very appealing look about it, and yes, it is now a favorite of mine..... Well done mate.

thank you,

although we still havn't figured out how it got out to every body before giving it 311 votes so i'm waiting for a reply to that because that was actually even less than 24 hours,

(and i think my dad is a little jealous) just joking

It's a CONSPIRACY, I tell ya!

No, but seriously... out of all of the pictures in his portfolio, that one image has far more views than any other. And it's still less than 24 hours old.

07/29/2006 09:52:50 PM · #10
Maybe it got picked up by stumbleupon.com?

Would that increase the DPC view statistics?

Hey guys..... this thread is actually increasing the comments, so lets keep it going for Devon.....
By the way, is is also a very appealing image, and also stands out as a thumb nail, so why wouldn't it receive a huge amount of support.....
I am only just "one" in hundreds, that think so.....

Devon, ya need to change the title... And please add info on how it was shot! If so many people are lookin, turn it into a learnin' experience for them too!
07/29/2006 10:17:59 PM · #14
ok thanks for the idea
07/29/2006 10:18:50 PM · #15
Curious....the last time we had squirrel shots with high views, Chit was raking up havoc here:))
07/29/2006 10:19:26 PM · #16
It is amazing on how and why there are so many view. The Shiprock pic I submitted has had 8731 views, I find it hard to believe that it is all because of DPC people. My guess is that stumbleupon and other sites link to DPC. Maybe that's why so many pics are stolen too.

Great work Devon
07/29/2006 10:31:46 PM · #17
i hope it doesn't turn out to be stolen

This image now has over 500 comments, so I hope the DPC members will keeping looking at it.....

Copy of my comment; "WOW" great "Bokeh" here, but again it needs a title.....
What about "I can see you".....or maybe "Reaching Out" or "To Touch", or maybe "My Paradise" or "Just me, Enjoying Life", and "My Turf".
Maybe ask others for comments, re the title as well Devon, to keep the wonderful interest, in these wonderful squirrel shots.....

I have just spent time visiting your new images in your portfolio Devon, and so proud of you mate, as you really have improved so very much, especially your macro shots.....

This young man is, wait for it, only 14 years of age, and is also the son of our own dpterry, or David Terry.

Wow... he even gets comments in 24 hours than I do! :-)

thank you for all the views and comments, still confusing how the one got so many without having a thread or anything that it was attached to and after the gold challenge is over i will have two new pics of some diffrent editing that i did with it and it probably looks a little more gold than the other did so thanks again,

Someone on the "outside" probably saw it, liked it, and posted a link to it in their Blog or MySpace or something...
