    Well there we were taking pics last night. I have RJ member "Kanswim" take many of my pics of late. He does a great job and puts up with some of the "challenges" on the side with my beagles or anything else.. maybe me.

    We were talking about the most effective pictures and how I see them. For me an "A" pic is one that shows creativity, was unplanned and unique and says something about the scene. My "bench shot" taken last summer was just something I thought of on the spot and a few pics were snapped. When I try and "recreate" its never as good as the original and if pictures are taken and I'm either not in the mood or we have a "situation" going it can carry through the pics.
    A cat across the street last night made pic taking interesting with the beagles.

    I look forward to sharing some of my new pics very soon. What pics do you enjoy seeing the most on here, is it just reveiling bare chested shots.. or something more?

    OMG! This is funny you brought this up considering my profile statement: "Your self-taken bathroom pics are just revolting!" hahahahahahah!!!
    I mean, really, you're gay, so use some of your innate reasonable creativity...
    With the exclusion of muttskins, I just find those almost 'obligatory' self-taken, "flex the muscles" pics ridiculous and quite a turn off! I mean can't you ask someone to take it for you or at least use the automatic flash of your camera so you don't really look stupid studying a pose while obviously thinking of when to click the button? hahahahahahahah!!! Anyway, to each his own... I'm just saying... and well, I can use some giggle on RJ... in addition to Caslon's LOLCATZicon_razz.gif
    Nothing beats candid moments: defenses down. Oh yeah, that also answers one way I can strike up a correspondence with a fellow RJ-er.

    While my pictures I don't think are particularly original or artistic, they are all unique and have special meaning to me. Ask me about any of them, there's usually a pretty funny story behind them.

    Well there are some who are more artistic and then there are those like me....lucky to get a pic up there at all! Then you look at hottoddy and think, damn, I need a 100 more pics! LOL

    The best pics are always the accidental Kodak moment. A posed pic is never as good as one that just happens in the time. I have some great pics of family members, just because I took them at the right time and there's usually that one shot out of a hundred that makes it worth while. Like the bench shot Hddsm! LOL

    I enjoy seeing all pictures of the Handsome Kansan!
    Definitely a face shot is the best way to communicate who you are - unless the person thinks the only thing important about them is a sixpack and package! (Then I don't think I want to bother checking their profile!)
    Nice if there is a little hint of something, but tasteful! Private photos can show whatever you desire!
    Looking forward to seeing the new pics!

    Funny I found this today. I was thinking of removing my pics today, or putting them in my private folder. Some people just can't appreciate the perfect male icon_confused.gificon_wink.gif

    I guess I appreciate seeing shots of a guy in his environment - and those reclining shots of yours are infamous!

    I'm going to willfully misinterpret this thread from the OP's more academic "what types of pics do you like" question to a more voyeuristic and fun (to me anyway) "what are your favorite pics" question.

    There's a ton of really amazing pics on here, for all sorts of reasons, but one that stands out for me is the shot of cacti looking up and being surprised by a raindrop heading his way. The RJ shot is reduced too much, so I'm embedding his larger flikr version.

    I checked his profile and it looked like a still shot from a Harry Potter movie!!! Amazing.

    I would be happy if the pictures they post are of themselves! A few impostors have been caught on RJ.

    I think Zdrew's latest picture is pretty clever. I wanted to start humming "White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane when I saw it.

    Also Zimster's photos always keep me amused. They give a pretty good idea of what his personality is like.

    Finally Timberoo using his pet was a refreshing change. Although I miss Timberoo's handsome face, I am a sucker for dogs, and his pet dog looks very huggable.

    That's amazing! icon_razz.gif I'm gonna guess he's sitting on a sundial with the word 'Bimillenia' on it? But hm.. probably a public park or something. Possibly an observatory?

    P.S. HndsmKansan's latest pic... mmm... strategic tearing eh? icon_cool.gif

    Yeah I know! I get really irritated by people who post BODY SHOTS on a FITNESS COMMUNITY SITE! I mean, how do those things go together at all? I mean upload something RELATED like unicorns or chugging beers!

    I'm gonna try and keep this thread going, cause I'm interested in seeing what people think is a good picture.

    Here's a few more I like:

    This one is a great-looking guy (Scallylad), with most excellent lighting:

    Love the framing on this one, and the guy (BoosterGold) couldn't be cuter if he tried:

    There's tons of cute guys on RJ, and even tons of cute guys with cute expressions, but this has always been one of my favorite "expression" shots (WYSIWYG84):
