Default Post an "average" photo

More fun with the database!

Post an "average" photo of yours from your collection. By average I mean check out what your personal average views per photo is from the members section, then find a photo in your collection that has the same number.

For example, my average views per photo (AVPP) is 174.92 at this posting. (That's kinda low! ) The following image has 178 views at posting, and I guess it is an average representation of my work here.

If you don't have any images that are exactly the same number as your AVPP, then round up to the next number in your collection. If you have more than one image, then select your favorite.

Here it is, in all it's mediocrity-

Great idea. My average views per photo is 240.67. Here's one of my photos in the database with 240, the only picture I have with that many. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=111019 Take care.

At an average of 232.67 (Lets round up to 233) here's one that's right on that number (at posting time). It's certainly nothing to write home about, but hey, it's an EMD.

My average is 208.7 views per photo, although I have many below that and a few above that. I have two at 224 views (make them 225!) and one at 196.

My average view per photo is 192.30 (way low compared to most, but I blame living in IL, OK, and ND...flat w/ no exciting scenery! I'm gonna have to do an average views/photo for my Colorado shots just for grins someday).

The shot that had 192 views is sort of an irony, since this location, this engine, and everything else in this shot is probably destroyed:

***edit***

Colorado is averaging 257.875 for me. Goes to show you that neat stuff in the background goes a long way toward your total views!

My average is 235 (but that is skewed due to a photo w/ 4,000 + views)

I haven't posted since this thread started in 2005. What a difference (almost) 4 years makes.

As of July 2, 2009, Christopher Blaszczyk currently has 730 photos in the database. The photos have been viewed a total of 810885 times, for an average of 1,110.80 views per photo.

1,110 views on the dot. It's most fourth-most popular EBT photo, all four from either 2005 or 2006. Not one of my strongest or favorite, but it's an interesting take on a popular EBT photo location. Plus, it shows how I've grown (or not, depending on who you ask) since 2005.

Still waiting for that Un-Reject certificate!

I haven't exactly been a flurry of productivity since this original post, but I did have a decent year in 2006, before I kind of put the hobby on hold. Currently, I have 49 shots in the database, with an average of about 557 views. Unfortunately, the picture closest to 557 views is this horrible shot of a beat up UP unit:

If I remove the photo of a damaged unit from the calculations, I get a new average of 497 views, which just happens to exactly match the photo referenced in my original post quoted above. I guess there's no escaping it; it's an average photo!

Some of us noticed your absence of new photos and disappearance from the forums...looking forward to you coming back to the hobby!

Me too, I think! I leave next month for Goodfeller AFB, and will be there in beautiful (*cough*) San Angelo for almost 7 months. I think I'm gonna have plenty of free time to go explore the west Texas RR scene. We'll see...

I would say a good average would probably be what the entire website's average is. I think it's currently around 300.

My average is 349.42, but that is skewed due to a handful with a large number of views. Anyway, here is my closest to the average photo.
