    What type of pics do you prefer in posts?

    I was just thinking how much I like looking at all the pics but then thought to my self "Self I think I really like wrist shots so much more than just seeing a watch posing on a table or something". Am I alone on this, not that I don't like the latter I just think for myself when I'm trying to picture a piece in a real world situation and how it would look on my wrist I prefer the good old wrist shot!

    I like em both the same but for different reasons. Sure wrist shoots is more advisable when it comes to purchase decisions but off wrist shoots can be more artistic, basically more artsy....

    I like em both, theres alot of folks on here that have really nice DSLR camera's that take really nice photo's. From time to time I will save one as a desktop background if it is one of my current favorites!!

    i like them all.
    when i opened the thread i thought it was more related to size of pics. i dislike ginormous pics that are so big that i have to scroll acrose the screen and i have never figured out how some can post pics in a linear left to right format.

    Thought you were going to ask if we liked uploads or links better. I like links. As far as subject anything works for me.

    Anything but attachments - slow and unreliable. Outdoor (natural light) wrist shots are most telling.

    I think that generally speaking I've seen more jaw-dropping photos that were taken with the watch not being worn - but wrist shots are undeniably useful for getting a feel for the size of the watch and making the whole set of pictures feel very personal.

    Both equally important. One for looks (posing), and one for reference. I like to have 1 of both shots for each watch. Further, I always love the Lume/EL shots.

    Wrist shot! But i do find a picture more appealing when you have some of the figure (let's say half the body) in the pic. A more casual shot or even a full figure shot rather than the typical wrist shot up close. But this full figure shot should be an addition and not something that replaces the wrist shot.
