So I revisited this momentous challenge that drew out the quintessential in so many fine photographers. Deeply satisfying. A glittering reflection of JJ's exquisite feel for life and beauty. His ability to inspire shines through, a bucket of cold water tossed in the face of dulled imagination. So happy to retrace this path.
As a personal aside, I was shocked and embarrassed by the number of terrific images I under-rated and failed to appreciate. Talk about bucket of cold water. If I could swing time around and face myself I'd give this joker the gimlet eye and ask, "what?".
A refreshing and edifying return. Thanks for "oops".

Just did it myself. So much to learn from his interpretation of the photos.

Thanks, Jean-Jacques!

Thanks to 21.gif tome for suggesting this challenge.

Yah......definitely a good read.

I was certainly intrigued by his comment on mine during the challenge!

He was kind enough to elaborate on request.

Thank you Jean-Jacques for the comment and for being here

So many wonderful photos spoil my average given vote. Probably making it irrelevant to the final score as well :-) but this was never about scores.

Difficult to pick favorites... a new one shines on each pass.

And I feel very honored my work was chosen to inspire a challenge of this quality.

also, for those who are game: There is a genuine jjbeguin in the lot, can you spot it?


Thanks so much for the comment! It's so appreciated.

Jean-Jacques, thanks for the years of inspiration. I think I've spotted the real jjbeguin.

And thank you for the words, and for looking so thoroughly.

Well, I was delighted to touch 6 a day ago but it didn't last. Steady decline now. Having looked at the many, many wonderful entries, I do not expect much in terms of a finish. But I still think my entry is worth a 6.
03/17/2015 08:25:42 AM · #19
Yup -- declining here -- but still incredibly pleased to be a bit above 6.

03/17/2015 07:53:41 AM · #20
Still on my slow decline

That must be your highest avg score ever given ;)

Think you gave me a five, but I deserve it, not JJ enough.
