So I was going to quote another post when I realized there's a button on that line labeled- "Top 15".

I am not the most observant of people, but I'm fairly certain it's new. I looked in Forum and Misc but there's no announcement for it. It looks like it allows you to upload your favorite 15 photos. I think it's a really cool idea. The gear lists in our profiles are fine and the links to photo streams and websites are great, but I know there's a lot on my photo stream, test shots and gear shots and family/friend stuff that, taken out of context, wouldn't be interesting. This seems like it would be a good way for someone who doesn't know you to get a quick idea of what you like to shoot.

I assume we're limited to the typical upload size (320k, I think?) so I'm going to have to downsize my favs, but I do plan to do that. Is anyone else thinking about using it?

Interesting. I know it'd be hard for me to pick 15 - a year and a half ago I had a chance to show some of my work and I had a hard enough time then narrowing it down that small

+1 @ the top 15 ... gonna be tough, but I think that's probably part of Fred's thinking that we should cull really hard on ourselves for a mini-port.

Pretty cool idea, imo.

I have not yet introduced this feature the proper way. I will make a post on the forum and miscellaneous soon.
Basically it's a mini portfolio for FM members (No subscription needed). Your best 15 images.
I agree, it's hard to pick 15!

OK. Got it down to 30 or so then it became somewhat arbitrary.

Sorry to jump the gun, Fred. It's a very cool feature.

Wait a minute... Fred, you're user #2?! Who's #1?

Kidding aside, neat idea. Thanks for that.

Editing is a very real skill. I'd love to work alongside a great editor.

One way that helped me (editing in general) was to start identifying a "Photo of the Month". I've been doing this since 2007 now and it didn't take long to pick my top 15 from them.

There's a bug in the photo title editing function. I can't enter something like Anna's Hummingbird without it being transformed into Anna\'s Hummingbird. My top 15 are here:

Work in progress here, maybe "top 150?"
I might just use my top 15 sellers and call it a day.

Thats a much better concept than the silly gear lists on other forms with the man red L letters

When I go antique shopping with my better half, the rule is "one in, one out" @ nothing new comes in unless you are willing to take something else out space constrained.

I think that's gonna wind up being the order of the day for the Top 15 as it will be quick to fill @ "it's a start", but then becomes a perpetual exercise in "raise the bar". That, or a kind of rotating/resting of pieces akin to museum management.

Or a monthly rotation @ port of the month ... you're probably good for a year's worth already.

Whenever we see anything that in someway implies "best", I think it's in our nature to question what is better than the other or what really is the best amongst so many different things.

My portfolio has long been the 21 images it is today, and although it's in need of updating, I have no trouble getting it down to that many images. I'm personally not a fan of 50-60+ image portfolios. But my portfolio is there to demonstrate the message I have in a relatively concise fashion. I wouldn't say it's my Top 21 or Best 21... it's more like: "Here are some images of different things which mostly say the same sort of thing, but in different ways, and with different sorts of responses implied".

You got it before I could get back to you. Always good to have lots of FM friends around to help.

It will be interesting to see what people consider their own faves; which may be quite different of what others think.
