I've started a couple of threads in previous years suggesting we share our favourite images from the previous year. This year I want to suggest something just slightly different. First, a digression as some background... Mike Johnston of The Online Photographer blog has had a call for images out in his "bakers' dozen" series. He admits he made a mistake in asking for black and white images, without further qualification, and is now having to sort through some 400 images to choose from (including 3 of mine). He put out a little mild critique in this post, including this: "Three pictures in a submission is almost like a mini-portfolio; one strong picture is weakened by being in the company of two weak ones, and three pictures that have nothing in common with each other suggest that the photographer has no coherent vision or style, no concerns that distinguish him or her from the crowd." Now I'd have to raise my hand and say "guilty" to that one. So it made me think. Two or three favourite images is almost the same thing. So what if we asked folk here for a favourite set of images, rather than just 3 favourites. Set can be defined any which way you like (including of course no linkage at all). But perhaps try to find some favourite images that stand up well beside each other in some way. Of course, taken on film in 2017. I haven't tried to do this myself yet! Whatcha think?
