    What might help is to post a picture not a link.

    xxxoverridexxx, to add to what Jimmy B has said, you should perhaps understand that a lot of people do not wish to click on links because they can be and are often hacked by those who think it is a good thing to place malware on other people's machines. I am not saying or implying that this is what would happen to any links that you might post, but it can and does happen, believe me, I know, I was the victim of a very malicious malware/spyware attack last Sunday that came at me from a relatively benign site (I was checking some old photography sites I hadn't used in quite a while to see if they were still up and running and whether or not I needed to keep them around). My computer is now free of the invader, but it cost me about 6 to 8 hours of my time and many phone calls to McAfee and many Google searches to get rid of it and my machine is still not right yet. Also, if you hang around this forum for very long, as I have, you will also notice the amount of Spam that is posted by "who knows"...

    You will get more people looking at your images if you figure out how to upload to this site directly, rather than posting links. I for one will be very leary of clicking on any link in the future - "forewarned is forearmed" - I trust you will take this advice in the friendly way in which it is meant - friendly

    Cheers,

    WesternGuy

    Spammy

    It also looks spammy when you join up and then immediately start posting links to another site. You've made two posts with links to that site, both of which have work by different photographers. We welcome people who want to share and discuss photography here. But if your intent is to pull new users for your own site, you've come to the wrong place.

    Been a while since I was on the track, Jimmy. And it was always on two wheels. But I'd give it a go

    Great shot Megan.

    How is this year's Auto Show circuit going so far? Will you be posting more pictures when you are done?

    Thanks, car show season is going well! I just got home from Detroit, actually. I will post photos soon, I'm going to go enjoy sleeping in my own bed. Though the room service in my apartment kind of sucks! ;)

    Nice photo, Megan

    Contact me if you want to publish some of your best NAIAS photos on CarReview. I was thinking of doing a best of show article, but can also do an showcasing your photos if I can find some basic information on any of the cars that are shown.
