I look at night flash photography the same way I look at drone photography. We see a lot of blah images that scream one of the following:

I've pretty much given up on RP views. Everybody (but me) appears to be "juicing" their views by linking to something.....forums, websites, Facebook groups, etc. Even friends who never used to...

Possibly. It's been my experience that most photographers are not shy about jumping on bandwagons. That said, this photographer has just shy of 3,600 images on the site. That's twice what I have...

The question I'd like to put to the bozo in charge is: Exactly how many people do you think would buy into paying $50/year for 1-5 GB of storage? I think they know...
