"Most Interesting"

Carnaval San Francisco foto

For over three years this image by Tinker Green has remained among the top three "carnaval" fotos on flickr. As of March-2009 there were over 600,000 plus fotos all ranked by the mysterious algorithm which counts page views, faves, comments and who knows what else.

TinkerG has wonderfully succeeded in capturing the dream that so many share about Carnaval San Francisco.
ShapeShift
Thanks to Shapeshift the 25-foto "most interesting" pageOne for the tag "Carnaval" on flickr has the 2nd most "Carnaval" fotos after Rio de Janeiro. Here are his three so honored by the global Carnaval Community/.
 Shapeshift also dominates pageOne for "Carnaval San Francisco" with an amazing 11 of 25 totals fotos placed on pageOne from about 17,000. This does not include any 2008 Carnaval fotos either, as he is only releasing them, like us (sfmission.com & Carnaval.com) at the beginning of the C'SF Countdown Season after pre-Lenten Carnaval.

Shapeshift also dominates pageOne for "Carnaval San Francisco" with an amazing 11 of 25 totals fotos placed on pageOne from about 17,000. This does not include any 2008 Carnaval fotos either, as he is only releasing them, like us (sfmission.com) at the beginning of the C'SF Countodown Season after pre-Lenten Carnaval.  Since shapeshift has 7 out of 7 of the "most interesting" 2007 Carnaval San Francisco fotos it will be interesting to see if his 9 month 2008 delay impacts his stunning ability to rise above the crowded pack of  Carnaval photographers.

The collection of over 17,000 Carnaval San Francisco photographs at the internet's #1 photo site is dominated by Shapeshift with almost half of the top 25 "most interesting" fotos
