There has to be something about the beauty of imperfection. On the other hand many years ago my wife took me to a meeting of the Vancouver Rose Society. I sat on a hard chair and I was exposed to 100 bad slides of rose closeups. Imagine sitting on that chair and now watching some of your perfect landscapes. Many have that cliché of the sky reflected on a pristine and still lake. Perhaps some b+w photographs might do. Or some with people. There is always that intent to do something in a way that has not perhaps been done before. Imagine sitting on that hard chair and watching 100 perfect sunsets or pictures of fireworks!
