I see the self-portrait group has vanished. You were all too ugly anyway. I took a look in the mirror this morning. Not a good idea. I had to carry that image with me all day. Put me right off my food. I thought, if I have to suffer, you can as well. View

    You have to be joking, right?
    You, the artist! I don’t think so. Lets see if its around in a few years. Don’t even place yourself on the same page as those you speak of. That’s egotistical blasphemy. No, you didn’t divert anything to tell another story otherwise we might have got it.

    It’s interesting that @pmarione has uncovered, quite incidentally, the root of the problem with photography and the internet.
    No longer do we decide for ourselves what we like or dislike. Even he would remember the days when he would process a roll of tri-x and look through the contact sheet for something he liked and considered worth printing.…

    So was mine, John, @nikon-nut. Just a different sort of tongue based on different social backgrounds. Oz tongues tend to be a bit more earthy and direct.
    Not only is @pmarione selective about which photos he shows, he’s very selective about which people he takes advice from and what that advice might be. He wants someone with some expertise yet…

    Now we are picking which critiques are in and which are not, based on the approval of @nikon-nut. Go stick you head further up your arse, @nikon-nut. I can bite as well. Just because you haven’t got the capacity to read it because it has words with more than one syllable certainly doesn’t make it more or less valid that your grunts.

    Hi Patrick @pmarione.
    Ok, so you want feedback. Here it is.
    People will generally become absorbed in a photo if there is something in it for them. If you had 10 people in a room looking at this shot on the wall, chances are you’d have 9 of them not giving it a second glance and the 10th looking for the door to the parlour. Even if you posted a…

  • tomdinning Replied to a Topic (Columns)

    OK, @raviputcha, what’s the point? Tell me what went through your head when you saw these and what inspired you to take the photo. At the moment it is purely a descriptive photo of the detail on the columns and not a very successful one I might add, as @nikon-nut has already indicated.
    Now, if you saw this structure in all,it’s original beauty…

    Of course it ‘works’ . It’s a photo of a door sign, although it’s a bit hard to tell if it’s a door or something you photoshopped.
    Why would you put this in the shark tank? Surely you had something in mind when you took the shot and you either achieved that or you didn’t. Why do you need us to tell you if you did or not.
    It’s not the photo that…

    Relax, @jonathantimar.
    I enjoy poking sticks at barking dogs. Its my hobby and I’m better at it than I am at photography, which doesn’t say much for either.
    Did you drown the kittens, by the way? Now that would be worth reporting! You might upset a few people but you’d have me fro a friend forever; even if you didn’t want me as a friend.
    Might…

    Hey, @jonathantimar, got your nose out of joint a bit, have you?
    I was only thinking the same thing. Tiresome is right. I was only thinking the other day ” who the fuck is this @jonathantimar character? Seems like he’s the knower of all things photography and has deemed himself The Critic God. “. I often talk to myself when I think.
    Now he…

    You had enough stickies on the first shot @jonathantimar. More than my fridge has. Don’t you trust anyone?
    The bear is an improvement, definitely. Its all a bit overcooked, judging by the silver lining on the mountains. You might have pressed the sharpen button a bit too long as well. Its a standard shot of a nice place. Good for the album but…

    You have given me food for thought, Rob @admin , and I’ll get back to you with a more lengthy response when I have it all sorted. It’s a great point for discussion and I appreciate your trigger.
    I would like to point out, though, that talking in extremes isn’t appropriate for such discussions. The difference between the amateur and such people as…

    Fair enough, but what about the oldies with the cats, kids, flowers in the garden, dogs. I think it’s great they take them but do we have to see all of them? Then there’s the ‘experts’ with their fuzzy water beach scenes, windows and doors, piers disappearing into the sea or lake, close up of the latest bloomage or bug and let’s not forget the…[Read more]

  • I have a laugh when I see a watermark on a crap photo. Yeah, right, someone is going to steal that!
    Personally, it’s just a wank, really. Someone pretending what they are not. Like, I’m really important and my photos are as well so back off or I’ll hit you with a law suit . Or maybe I’m so insecure that I can’t trust anyone with my precious…[Read more]

    A 35mm lens in any language will give you about 55mm of equivalent in your D5200.
    Money talks with lenses. The more you pay the better it is likely to be. Fortunately, fixed focal length lenses are cheaper and usually faster ( have a larger base aperture. ) you van pick up a Nikon 35mm 1.8 DX for about $200, an fx 2D for about $400 and a juicy fx…[Read more]

    I gave Christine some Lillie’s once. Not a good idea. She thought I was forecasting her demise and the pollen stained the carpet. Maybe I should have given her your B&W ones, Karen.
    Now, that’s one very relaxed and homely shot. That’s not your grand piano is it? Play us a tune.
