Your ten best photos

I've been going through the gallery and there seem to be a lot of good photographers here, and lots of us wannabes too

Unfortunately, some people have hundreds, if not thousands of images uploaded. I can't look at them all.

How about creating a My Ten Best Photos gallery? When you get a better shot, replace one of the others - even if it's *really* good too.

Just an idea.

So, here are My Best Photos (only 5 so far).

Already tried something similar:

Unfortunately it wasn't the hottest thread on the board. I think the gearheads outnumber the rest of us!

You mean it wasn't immortalized on the web? Anyway, you're not one of the culprits.

I somehow suspected that this wasn't a revolutionary idea

So, how much does your camera weigh?

I'll admit to talking gear and the technical more than design. I find the design aspects are harder to get into a written form clearly, plus I always put a lot of consideration into the size of my prints- a 14x18" print is hard to translate to the monitor.

I think any talk of design is by necessity a two-way discussion best suited to a one on one, in person session. There are always rebuttals to interrupt any discussion I have in this arena, questions answered, the whys and wherefors a particular decision was made. For me this needs to be in person with hands waving and sometimes a red crayon!

That, of course, is a very valid point. Still, to get some idea of the image, composition, lack of cropping ( ) etc. even a low-res scan is better than nothing.

Anyway, what I meant was not the posting of images, but a selection of the best that *are* posted.

I think its a great idea. You could set it up album style where each member is only allowed one album that holds ten pictures. Then you can view by member.

Not that I think that my stuff is great but I can never come up with only 1, 10 or even 20.

Can you reformulate your question and make it 100 instead? I could probably come up with my 100 personal favorites easier then only 10. After all the money that went through this photography thing it would be a shame to name only 10!

I belive that the investments you made, have absolutely nothing to do with the output (pictures)

Daniel's point and the coincidence that there are twelve months in a year suggest that the magical number 12 might be more suitable.

BTW Daniel, I think I'd quite like to see your twelve all time greatest shots. Not just the best of each month, or whatever.

As a special, special, once only exception, NB23 is allowed 16 (since they also fit on one page in gallery view).*



To try and clarify: the point is that if you have a Best Of gallery, people are *more* likely to look at all of your photos. One could even have a "...and all my other really good photos" gallery. If they were really impressed with the Best Of, then they'll want to go through all the others too.

Until someone who knows more about RFF (most of you) makes a better suggestion, I suppose one could just register one's gallery here. I.e. just say that you have one.

* of course, everyone can do what they want - it was only a suggestion...

I've been trying to edit down my stuff to a small "best of" for ages. I always give up, not because I think I have too much good stuff, but because I find it almost impossible to find more than 3 or 4 pictures that I'm really pleased with, so it's always a depressing experience going back through the portfolio :-)

I am a gearhead, but I won't unnecessarily deliberate about my best. Here they are:
http://www.flickr.com/photos/jimfisc...7601120391942/
I am young and have only been taking pictures for 2 years so it's easy to cull my top 10.

There have been some cool shots on this thread so far. 'The Burger Bar' by ourmanintangier, the stadium shot by ywenz, etc have really impressed me.

It's interesting that some people seem so reticent to post any pictures. I know it can be difficult to choose 10, especially if you've been at it for a long time, but it's funny that people who could so easily nit-pick the minutia of lens design are so shy about sharing the actualization of what photography is all about.

I do like this idea, however at this point my 10 best photos have been taken with either a digital point & shoot or SLR. This is rangefinder forum, so until I have 10 rangefinder shots worthy of putting in a gallery here, I'll just look at what you folks think are your 10 best.

Can't you just create a new one?

I don't know how you can move photos from one directory to another, or if one can put one photo in different galleries without uploading it twice.

Hey, even a gearhead need to come out and take some pictures sometimes

The flickr set contains what I interpret as my best according to the RFF style, my best shots in other categories would bore you guys to tears , this one would probably just make you laugh.

Are you kidding me? I have about 45,000 transparencies, 5,000 negatives and maybe 10,000 digital files and growing. If I could choose ten (and I can't) nobody would agree with me anyway.

Along the same lines, I have thought for several years that I would put together a book of images to give away to friends and relatives at Christmas.

I can't even decide on which images to include or what theme they might take.

I hope my ten best are the next ten I make!

Wow! 60,000 images. Let's see now, at 3 secs per image, viewing continuously for 8 hrs a day, that would be, ummm, 6.25 days viewing.

I think that one of the benefits of being young is that I don't have so many negatives to go through to choose my ten best. However, since I've been using an SLR longer, most of them are SLR shots. Also, they're all posted somewhere already.

Great idea, Colin.

I will join the crowd a bit later. I have to scan and prepare my fovourites before. That will take some time.

I will come back to this thread in autumn.

Great idea. I'll create a new gallery and move my fav photos into it.

Okay, is it possible to copy photos from one gallery to another, or does one need an external source for the photo and do the upload thing?

Some of mine are also taken with OM-1, which despite being an "honorary rangefinder", it's an SLR

But, that's why I put them on flickr, not on RFF gallery.

In view of Daniel's well reasoned comment (ie. that the display is in rows of 4) the official limit is now TWELVE photos.




If this is not enough, one can always create another gallery called "My other best pictures" or whatever.

Please feel free to add your gallery link to this list. If you use the Quote button, please remove the QUOTE tags (but not any of the rest - like this text). After clicking on a photo (in another gallery) you can click an "Edit" button underneath, which lets you *copy* or *move* it to another gallery.
