Number One: Day 140: Merge
Day 140: Merge

Flickr has a feature that allows you to keep track of how many people favorite certain photos. The above photo, Day 140: Merge, has the most favorites of any of the photos on my Flickr stream. It was taken as a part of my 365 Days photo project, and though it is the photo with the most favorites, it has not sold, while photos a hundred dollars more expensive were bought within hours of posting.

I like the texture in this photo, the texture and the simple color scheme. It's still available here: http://blackwell.livejournal.com/2008/04/01/

EDIT: Well, it's not available anymore. Apparently I just needed to remind folks that it was still for sale. But be assured, it's going to a good place.

Below the cut is 2-10 of the photos that have been favorited the most on Flickr. It's interesting to see what other people find attractive and to learn from what the tastes of others are. Later, I'm thinking that I'll post a list of my top ten favorites. There is some overlap - my favorite photo from my 365 Days set is in this top ten.

Do you agree with the internet hive mind? Is your favorite photo of mine here?

Number Two: Ask For Blood
Ask For Blood
I attribute Ask For Blood's position on this list to the fact that it includes amazingly hot artist, Jennifer Rodgers. </center>

Number Three: Day 200: What About You
Day 200: What About You

Number Four: Tag
</center> While most favorites are recent, Tag was taken back in 2006. It was featured in SubLit Magazine.

Number Five: Day Twenty Nine: Archway
Day Twenty Nine: Archway
Day Twenty Nine: Archway was purchased within a few hours of posting. Like all of my 365 Days prints, it's owner has the only print I'll ever make of it. Why only make one print each? Well, one day, one moment, one print. If I'm going to charge 365 dollars for something, I feel it should be exclusive.

Number Six: Day 220: Teiresias
Day 220: Teiresias
This photo is my favorite photo from my 365 Days project. I love it. It may be my favorite photo in my collection. If there was one photo I was very tempted to keep for myself, it was this one. The only print I'll ever make of it is owned by author Tee Morris.

Number Seven: Day 213: Lady of Fire
Day 213: Lady of Fire
Another one of my 365 Days photos, this is owned by Paul Fischer. I experimented with back lighting a lot in my 365 days series, but I think that this photo has my favorite result of all my experiments.

Number Eight: Day 170: Swirl
Day 170: Swirl
In the morning it's very, very bright in my studio. It's my favorite time to shoot in there.

Number Nine: Day 201: No Time For Love
Day 201: No Time For Love
Still available here: http://blackwell.livejournal.com/205413.html
I guess one of the lessons here is if I want to take amazing photos, I'll just have to call over Jennifer Rodgers. And you know what? I'm okay with that.

Number Ten: Day 104: Warrior of the Court
Day 104: Warrior of the Court
I'm not sure if this is a great photo, but I do love my hair in it. If it wasn't so hard to keep up with having pink hair, I might still keep the style. It's a difficult style to maintenance though - quick to get roots and easy to break and tangle. No photoshop was done for this photo: I really am that pale in the winter. Summer too. Hell, I'm just pale all year round.

This was the day I learned that armor can actually be quite warm in the winter - yes, even against flesh.

Warrior of the Court is another photo that seems to be well loved, but that no one purchased. It's available here, but I'm only selling one copy: http://blackwell.livejournal.com/2008/03/02/

Later: My favorites!
