I decided that I would go through all my pictures and delete all the blurry ones, the focus test ones, the 80 pictures of the same flower ones. I have just saved everything I have shot. So it was a huge task with more than 20 000 pictures to go through, just last years ones. (not started with 2008 yet >_< )
So, beeing on call and bored I started. And found alot of great images that I have just let slip. So I recomend everyone to go through your pictures with new eyes and see what you can find.

This picture was my favorite, it was taken at the east asia museum april last year. Its a chinese pottery maker that I, one year later, cant for my life remember the name of.
I can just sit and look at the lines in the picture and marvel at the creation.

That's why I don't delete You can usually find & see something new in your buried images.

Very striking shot. I like the framing too.

As has been already said - don't delete! Those terabyte drives (and now NAS) are very affordable bulk storage. Keep 'em all!

But back to the image - I really like it. Great form and structure. The B&W rendering gives it a lot of character.

Thanks for sharing

And im not truly deleting the pictures, I now have 2 drives, one where I now have every picture taken and one where I have taken away the blurry ones etc.
Hard drives are cheap

Very nice shot, I really like the black and white treatment you did on the image as it really works well. I also really like the lines in the image as they make it very cool to look at and study.

Thanks for sharing!

I love images like this (deep shadows, strong lines, B&W) and finding it in a pile of old forgotten ones just makes it even better.
