I just recently started looking at the online sites like flickr and I'm kind of puzzled by something. I was looking for a place to post my "good" or "finished" photos; the ones I'm proud of; the ones that I also hang on my wall. Of the many folks on this forum who have a flickr (smugmug, zenfolio) link in their signature, there are many who obviously have the same idea about what to post online. You can tell that by looking at their work: It's good stuff, finished products.
But there are obviously many who have a different idea about what to post. If you follow their flickr links you find stuff like: "This one is really overexposed, I should have done better with that." And I want to ask, then why are you showing it to the world? Are you proud that you didn't get it right? There's no request for help or input, just, "Here, look at this one, it's not very good."
I guess I've assumed that someone who's a member of a forum like this one cares about their photography, and further assumed that someone who cares about their photography doesn't display their obviously flawed shots (with comments pointing out the flaws, no less!) That really puzzles me. So my question to POTN users: What shots do you post online, and why?
