    My PR.com Top 10 Photog List...

    Ok so I realize that I am just begging for trouble here, but these are just my top 10. I am not trying to be definitive or start a list to figure out the best. Feel free to add your own personal top 10's but please, please remeber to keep them in the realm of opinion, cuz that's all this really is...

    So in no particular order:


    1) Rick

    2) Adina

    3) Brian

    4) Gary

    5) Tuna

    6) Penny

    7) Larry

    8) Megan

    9) Irakly

    10) Steph B.

    There are really so many more that picking 10 is sorta pointless, and if I tried it again it would probably come out all different, but as for now these are my top 10.

    SInce you put me there...

    I feel obligated to reply, since you put me on your list John.
    Thanks for thinking of my photography in such a way.
    If I were to do a list like this, it would consist of only one name, EVERYONE!

    I knew that had something to do with that and I more than appreciate that John.
    Keep at it.
    It takes a long time to refine your vision and craft.
    I'd say there is a good 100 years of combined experience in your list.

    I considered Charles, but I wanted to keep it to active members...

    And if you ever posted anything I might have picked you.... ;)

    maybe it's the definition about ensuring the likelyhood of nuclear fission that applies here.

    I'm not sure this is a good thread for the good of the community. I've seen newsgroups disintegrate over less.

    I really hope noone takes such a post as an insult, Chunk. Even though Almo is a moderator, he still has his own opinion and what he likes may not be one's strong point. If someone cannot deal with people not liking their work, they may as well quit, and find something else.

    Hey Almo!

    You rock buddy! Thanks! Cute buns or not I appreciate being on the list.

    I appreciate everyone's different styles on the site. I think our diversity is what makes the community great. AND I think everyone is entitled to make their own lists of favorites, of course! For instance, Almo you're at the top of my list for having great TASTE!!

    Everyone have a great weekend!

    Now lets not get this wrong here. Just because somebody was not on the list doesn't mean I don't like or respect their work. I mean look if I were to try and name all of the ones whose work touched me in a special way, or inspired me, or just awed me the list would go on and on and on and on. As I stated in the first post, this is just a caption of my feelings now. If I were to do this again in a month my choices would most likely be somewhat different.

    Please don't see it as an insult if you are not named, because I am truly inspired by all of you.
