I'm a beginner, and certainly entertain fools and experts alike,
I credit you Mr. Luria, on a photograph well composed and beautifully rendered.
So well done in fact you should be proud and excited!
I'm thrilled if even a dang brokedown parochial loser bar patron has a look of awe or wonder at anything, only doubly more if it's a look of awe or inspiration while looking at one of my pieces.
You have every right to be proud.
Man, making dough in the digital imagery racket must be hard
Thank you Rocco. Mostly on these forums, as is prevalent everywhere and anywhere there is a forum, we find people that are only looking to cause trouble. They have no skill themselves and post no work of merit.
Their pleasure is derived from being anonymous while deriding others warranted or not. These are impotent people, Rocco. They have meaningless jobs and have no impact in their lives. So, they sit, like vultures on a telephone pole, waiting for their next meal. Any post will do.
I have tested this at other forums. I once posted an image and said that it wasn't mine, but wondered what others thought of it. The "opinions" were typically vicious and found every fault imaginable with that image. Then I let them know that it was taken by a world renowned photographer and was on temporary display in a New York City museum. So much for "opinions".
In the guise of giving an "opinion" the forum-vultures only want to mime superiority. They want to denigrate the work of others in order to feel better about themselves, when in reality they are unable to post work that will be highly regarded.
I post on four other forums and this is the only forum that "'responds" the way this one does. I am an award winning photographer and have sold both prints and coffee-table books of my work. I joined this forum to check it out, but have found it to be just another like the infamous DPReview.
Do yourself a favor Rocco, and join a better forum!
