The compilations are thematical sets of pictures from the Bilderbeutel Collection
subdivided into sections. Accompanying text might or might not be available.
As the collection comprises a rich variety of pictures and because the requests
in some cases return a lot of pictures, we provide these compilations to specific
themes. The compilations offer an alternative to view interesting parts of the
collection without the need to search by oneself.
Naturally, by selecting the themes we are departing from the existing stock of
pictures. The categorization by keywords is the starting point. But as these compilations
are thought as a complement to keywords categorization that makes sense, these
are not simple database queries by certain criteria. They are carefully composed
and edited sets.
The subdivision in sections is made to present the pictures by diverse aspects
within the respective thematic. The subselection aspects can be formal or contently,
or both. The pictures are put together to reflect different aspects of the same
basic theme, as far as these aspects are represented by a sufficient number of
pictures in the collection.
The pictures are selected by thematical relevance in the first place. Rating and
hits are not considered, but more interesting pictures are preferred. Another
criterium is diversity.
