I made a decision a long time ago to enter a pic in every JPG Theme that I could, but this one is difficult for me to do. You see I don’t think my photos are underrated. I think they are overrated. At the moment I have 197 hot photos and most of my photos receive double-digit favorites and props. So I’ve decided to bring back a photo that I’ve deleted, not because JPG members did underrate it, but because it was a victim of my own tendency to underrate my photos.

JPG doesn’t allow large sets of photos so when I did my 365 Days photo shoot I left only a few of them on JPG and uploaded all 365 of them on Flickr in one large set. I would have had to create 33 photo essays on JPG. I’m on day 207 of another 365 day photo shoot where I dedicate a photo a day to some JPG member. Once again the entire 365 photos will appear on Flickr in one large set while only a few will remain on JPG.

Often the members I dedicate photos to have not received the attention they deserve. It is my hope that my link to their site might help.

This photo was one I uploaded for Sean-Michael Gettys’ Invisible Self Portrait series. It was my Week 2 entry in that series.

One of my favorite mistakes, this photo was a failed attempt at blur photography while riding the John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) Skytrain.

    It is awesome John!! Art is selectived. If everyone only liked Monet, Picassa would have been in trouble.

    John, you are very modest of your own talents, but I can relate to what you are talking about..I am my own worst critic of my work, but maybe it is better to be that way than to become so complacent that we don't find room for improvement...I know you have viewed thousands of pictures since you have been a member and I have viewed a great number also ...Amazing talent on this site and you are one of them.

    Thanks for the information John! I get frustrated when you have to uplaod one photo at a time to show a group of images with a story so uploading them in one batch will be great:)
