When I check a new person, I tend to visit the popular photos first. I bounce around the first couple of pages and select what I like from them.
What this tells me is what others think is your best work. I find the opinions of others odd at times, biased towards color over black and white, so I don’t entirely trust it. This is what I have been putting out a series of “personal favorites” folders.
Neither lomography nor flicker offers any direct means of sharing these. So I do a run-around by creating albums or sets.
I’d like to see more personal favorite folders so I can get a better idea of what my friends here like in their own work. Never trust the world out there to define you. Make your own statement.
