    Are people really willing to spend 7.99 and up for 1 photo? I'm not trying to be a smarta$$, I really want to know if there's a market for that, because if there is, I'm buying a better camera.
    yep...

    I appreciate your thriftiness and opinions, I won't be buying a $699.00 wheelset from you either, so no hard feelings.

    I was going to buy my grandmother a better camera too in hopes of turning her into a professional sports photographer.

    But to be both is truly a significant accomplishment. Glad to see you're working on fatass to hit the trifecta.

    Everybody's a critic...

    I like your photography Dave - I also think that $8 is downright reasonable given that many other local photogs charge $19 + for pics.
    Now with more vitriol!

    Nobody is twisting your arm to order anything, or charging you for looking at them. They are up there for the people that want prints of themselves, or are curious what last weekend looked like. You can lead a horse to water... Knock yourself out if you want to browse the pics.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Ha!

    So what did you do last weekend?

    Rode Mary's Loop, Horsetheif and Moore Fun Friday. Over to the Bookcliffs to ride Chutes and Ladders, the Edge Cutoff, Frontside and Zippity-Do-Da before heading home. We had a blast, the weather was great.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    So you're in charge of the gathering this year?

    When is it?
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    The folks paying for the banner ads aren't twisting my arm either.

    I guess there is a threshold with spam where intent to make money is not enough to warrant paying for ad space...It's only when you are rolling in the dough and feel like you should pay for it...right?

    I still haven't figured out all the ethics of this stuff.....silly me.

    However Dave, I cut you a lot of slack because unlike others who do this, you do have passion and post other things here...But I guess I have a double standard too.

    Actually, one of them "twisted" my arm and I'm really liking this Flight Fighter bike that I've been riding this spring. I'm climbing and cleaning stuff on this bike that I never thought I could before, but if I recommended you should check out a Flight, you may tell me I'm spamming you here. Hey, I'm not trying to rip on you, but I'm also not going to put 705 JPGs up in this thread to drag down your computer and some people's dial-up connection. So if you want to browse our shots from last weekend at your own pace, you know how, if you don't, then I'm going to tell you right here on this public message board that you don't have to.

    Have a good one Rich,

    Dave

    So you are selling the pictures that you are allowing everyone to see... but only if they want to buy them?

    Are people buying those pictures? That is all I want to know.

    EDIT - Nevermind. After looking at the pictures I can see that your ONLY reason for taking them was to sell them. Sad really.

    Sorry Dave, but once again I can't make out a God damn word that you're saying.

    Wow, way to miss the point, champ. I was being serious. If there's a market, and you actually make coin selling pictures this way, it's worth looking into for an aspiring photographer. But I guess you also have to be real defensive and cop attitudes with everyone that so much as questions your motives in order to sell pictures.
    yep...

    Actually, that wasn't directed at anyone in particular, but rather a tongue in cheek comment. Glad I could be of assistance though.

    I'll jump in line, just to show I'm one of the guys -

    Dave, you' re a twat, and gold Explorers are totally 2003 - so there.
    Now with more vitriol!

    I don't take anyone too seriously in a forum where people slam and misquote each other, or we really would have a double standard. A lot of people on edge here expecting some type of motives and confrontation, but apparently that's what makes this place so entertaining some days. I'm laughing with you, but you'll have to excuse me if I don't rip on anyone else just to be feeding the flame here. Like Josh said, everyone's a critic.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Dave I like you. But those flight bike guys?? I did a group ride with a guy here on the forum back in 2005 (don't worry, I won't name names). He made fun of how much I paid for my helmet (I didn't tell him actual price anyway as my shops give me great deals) and the guy was an @$$ about it and an @$$ to others in general. In my opinion (everyone, I said my opinion) he was trying to sell me more of a XC bike as a freeride bike (Don't get me wrong, the design looks pretty nice [not sure the frame is worth $1650ish though, and did you guys buy the rear triangle or cut a corner by buying it from like Titus?? Not sure, just asking.]...but a full hit free ride bike it is not, that is what sed rider was pushing it as. Besides, how many free ride bikes, guys bikes, whatever, come with a glitter paint job?? Now if I had a stripper GF she might like it!! It just isn't braced for any type of drop with those kind of bends, once again IMHO). Also, seems to me if I were selling something I might be nice to the potential clients?? Hmmm...makes you wonder! He also said the bikes are for epic rides. He turned at 13 miles already tired and ready to go home (ya man, epic for sure!! ), almost everyone else rode about an hour more and still felt it was a short ride. Once back to the car flight bike boy was off to the hospital as he and his little flight bike fell over ON A NICE DIRT ROAD IN A CAMPGROUND and had to go get stiches in the knee...tuff technical riding those fire roads! You know I am sure the builder is a great guy (unless it is you whom I speak badly of) but if you want to sell more bikes you might find a better sales staff with some people skills. Remember people, just my 2 cents. Now for my spam...GO BUY A BLACK SHEEP...James (james, James, James, thank GOD some people still love their client base!!) that's $5.00 for pointing people to a pic of the perfect bike money will buy!!
    Cheers,
    Cole
    PS~ Dave, you are better at this spam stuff then their actual staff...that is unless now you are one of them...GASP!? Flight Bikes, it's not a bad product until you create a bad experience for the customer, don't flame me on this...TAKE NOTES
    Black Sheep...where it'ss at!!
