Title: LPL 11 portfolios
Post by: Captain Blood on June 25, 2017, 03:21:28 PM
I thought it would be an idea for people to post their LPL portfolios here, if desired - until we're ready for the next league  :)

Partly because it occurred to me that we never see participants' entire output for an LPL together in one place, and it might be instructive - as well as providing a mainline hit of eye candy!
And partly because it's a shame for these works to sink without trace once the competition is done.

So I've set up portfolios here for the top three placed finishers, and also for the Prof. Because a/ it's his forum, and b/ his scenes are always simply bogglingly brilliant and I wanted to see them all together!  8)

If you took part and want to add your own portfolio of entries, feel free to start a new thread for your own oeuvre  :)

I hope you enjoy the show...

Lovely idea - I'll try and do mine this evening.

A good idea, indeed. Often I'll find myself wanting to revisit someone's entry, and pretty soon give up when being confronted with ten weeks worth of Entry vs. Entry listings.

This will make old favourites much easier to find. We should have done this from the start (and no, I'm not volunteering to go back and do it for every LPL).  :)

Great idea, also for the audience :D

We should publish a LAF Portfolio book !

Silly question, but does this include older LPL's?

cheers

Well, I only meant to do it for the most recent one.
But if you have a strong urge to go back and bring out your portfolio from a previous LPL, that's fine I'm sure  :)

Dunno if it would get too wieldy with more than one LPL though  ???

Possibly...  lol

Shall we see if anyone else puts up their LPL 11 output before delving deeper in the archives?

I can tell you most assuredly, if I were to put up my LPL 1 portfolio, it would not look too clever next to my current stuff! So that might be quite instructive too...  ::)
(I'm not going to be doing that)

Sounds like a plan  :)

Looking through the Prof's portfolio, I cannot believe he came just 10th. Fix! Ask for your money back Prof.  ;)

What a cracking idea!

Just what we need: More eye candy!
And some top-drawer eye candy at that.

I agree. I think he should have won it, truly. But I think that pretty much every time.
He is one of the true maestros of this form...  :)

Wonderful idea, Richard! Btw, I'm also sometimes looking for a particular entry and struggling to find it. And seeing pictures by a painter in a row is a new visual experience, suddenly you can recongnize more than just a bunch of single photos!

So I've set up portfolios here for the top three placed finishers, and also for the Prof. Because a/ it's his forum, and b/ his scenes are always simply bogglingly brilliant and I wanted to see them all together!  8)

Thanks, Richard, that's very kind of you, appreciate that :)

Thanks, Nord, but I am really happy with my current place, this accurately reflects my performance this year, being far from the top level :)

Might have a go at doing this the weekend

Is it a case of adding a new topic and then uploading the pictures that you used

Thanks

You don't need to upload them again, they are already posted on LAF. You can just copy and paste the links.

Though uploading them might actually be a lot less bother than sorting through all the entries trying to find them! :)

As Plynkes said. It took me 2 min.

Took me just a couple of minutes too.

I have said to myself every year I've entered I must do a picture of the whole lot and not unsurprisingly I've never actually carried got it done

Portfolios solve this problem perfectly, no trying to think how do I get 50 or so miniatures into one picture
