Best seen large.
Much to my amazement, this was for many months my second most viewed photo. For a while I kept thinking it was a fluke or novelty item, but the trend was pretty steady for quite a while. The other major contender at the time was this shot, which is similar (and in my opinion more interesting).
Now (Feb 2007, 1.5 years after it was posted) it's still in the top 15 on views, but down in the 180's or some such on interestingness.
It's also worth noting that despite all the views, this has never been favorited by anyone. Not terribly surprising really since I think this shot is more interesting than a favorite.
