Given that I recently offered some harsh critique of images posted in this forum, I thought it is only fair to open myself for the same :)

Two options:

United Colours (Underpants) of Benetton;

The Flying Burrito Brothers play Bel Air.

Nice tight formation, whoever you shot!

Slobodan, as you're far from being a beginner and that I know what kind of good images you are able to produce,
this image is indeed an open door from criticsm bombing  ;D,

Keeping in mind that we are not talking about a beginner but an honorable veteran, right?

- There is no movement captured in the paralell curves wich makes the image too static
- The tint of the blue sky is boring and clouds have a dominance that doesn't help
- Saturation of the sky could be less to not compete with the colors of the subject
- the composition tells nothing, it's messy, too far and would deserve a good cropping and putting the axix to the bottom paralell for example

in fact, a banal and boring image in the very long list of aerial shows snapshots.

Have I been harsh enough? Or you want more...

You should try criticizing it instead of praising it?  :)

Fred, for 50€/day (each!), can I have those two girls added to the package for France too?

Rob  :o, are you revealing your hidden nature?



What, do you think I'm a spendthrift?

I don't think it's quite awful enough. Don't you have anything that's more awful?

Fred, this isn't funny… there have been several suicides in the States recently, from kids to teenagers, as a result of cyber-bullying (i.e., harsh online criticism, threats and insults).

Is that what you are doing to me here, Fred?  ???

… Is it, Fred?  :( :(

… Is it!?  :'( :'( :'(

wich means: "the one who loves well punishes well" ;)

Now, now, Slobodan; most of us had forgotten about the clunky new mechanics; thought it had always required using Word in order to write more than a couple of lines...
