Thanks for the feedback all.
Steady, actually over a 100 people clicked the link today alone, so, not so rare. I did take a lot of photos of the dog and the girl, it's like I was paid to do it or something. Really don't get that comment. Your point on the "flashy" photos is well taken. Thanks again all.
No harm meant by my comments. I was simply trying to help you. And, as always, everything I write here is written in a truly friendly tone of voice with no malice intended.
On the point of 100 people viewed the linked photos: That happens all the time here on this forum. In my opinion, what is more important than the NUMBER of people who see something is the number of people who SAY something (or comment or try to help you if you ask for it). Many hits with few comments may mean little interest in what they saw. As of the the time I am writing this, over 350 people have viewed your forum post, yet only 5 have posted any comments at all.
To be more specific on my comment about "lots of photos":
There were a lot of photos of the same girl and same dog. Not much variety aside from many shots in different light or pose. Same girl, same dog, same girl, same dog, etc.
You posted for us to see (or wanted us to look). So I suppose you wanted comments on the photos, or hits on your blog (and that seemed to work now).
My Simple Suggestion to ANY photographer posting on a photo forum: Whether you got paid or not, if you are going to present a set of photos to a group of photographers (like this forum) practice a little self-editing and select the best few shots for us viewers to focus on. Showing more than a few tends to diminish the effect and interest AND it makes it difficult to comment with any specifics, IF you wanted specific comments beyond a general remark.
My favorite from the set was the "jump shot."
I hope this helps you...and others.
