But the flaws aren't the point in viewing a seedling photo.  They represent the possibilities and variations the parents are able to give their offspring.  Seedlings are really interesting whether they make the cut or not.  From the best to the worst of the lot, they give information.  I would love to see a set of photos of all the siblings of some Dykes winners.  I think that would be both interesting and enlightening.
