So what you saying Reg, it is a mystery that I should get anywhere near the top? LOL
Joking with ya, it is odd how they decide. Some shots are total crap, no doubt about it.
It is only my fith photo to even make explore. Heard they made recent adjustments to the selection process,
but who knows if there is any real ryhme or reason to it.
Just thought it was cool.

After a long hiatus during haying and harvesting, I finally got a chance to break out the Sigma 50mm again.
What did I learn from this?
1) I do not have 1mm the talent that Rooz has.
2) I missed not firing off a single shot in several months.
3) My kids are very protective of their toys.

Another Porsche photo....
I also upload a few "still" photos of a nice looking Shelby convertable, the batmobile, and I few others but I prefer the action photos. That's why I am going to start checking out my drifting photos now.

I was trying something new, didn't go quite as I wanted it to, but I'll do better next time.

Wow cool shot there Turo.
Great shot TNB
Congrats Rich on Explore front page . My max position has been #49
I think Explore has to do with the nos of Fave and Notes your picture gets, which are more imp then the nos of comments. Also a interesting Title/description and tags adds upto the chances to have your pics into explore, Geotagging also accelerates your chances.
Adding it to any award/comment group (like post 1 award 3 types) will kill any chances you got to be into explore .

That's pretty cool Rich. You have one more appearance than me. Of course I don't do any of the things ANP suggested
