It would seem several of you  regard  film cameras as tantamount to being a blasphmere

Not everyone does. I enjoy working with digital, but I'm also playing more heavily with film. My most recent obsessions are a new (to me) Hassy, a Kiev 60 with a 30mm Arsat lens that is quirky and fun, and a Shen Hao 4x5 field camera. I don't see why I can't play with as many toys as I want to. :-)

It's wonderful to see so many people posting on this thread! Such wonderful photographers!

Let's keep the momentum going. Lots of photographers visit here daily - perhaps some of you need help finding a server to post your photos on. Perhaps some of us have a bit of space available...

"you wouldn't dare say it without some reason"  Exactly.  What do you do with "Yes, that's very nice." or "It sucks."  It may be very nice because it is an image of my grand daughter.  It may suck for the same reason (to someone else of course).  The best (and worst) I ever heard was "THAT's an image!"  Well, yes, but ... ?

"I would admit that I am inclined to not comment rather than comment negatively."  Always safe, but not very instructive.  I would put it in the same category as "It sucks."  

It is my opinion and observation that many images are posted with the intent of showing us how good the photographer is rather than learning anything.  Negative feedback on those images is usually poorly received.  No one has ever objected, as far as I know, to unsupported praise.  But even the best supported negatives frequently get either blasted (like "Who are you to dislike my work?") or "taste is indisputable" or "I like it and that's all that matters."  These are why I believe the photographer should not comment or reply to criticism, positive or negative.  In the interest of learning, answering direct questions or asking for more information is OK.

I think we can all agree that "taste is indisputable" so that comment is not informative at all.  It seems it is usually intended to include "my taste is good and your's sucks."  I once heard someone add "said the cat as it licked its bum."

All critiques that I have attended were required to be the finished image.  Not a work in progress, but the photographers best effort.  So, of course the photographer could always say "I like it ... ."  And I think that "and that's all that matters" is another thing we can all agree on.  So why make the reply at all?

As already suggested, perhaps this is the type of image that only works as a huge, highly detailed print. At this small size, the foreground could be just rubble for all I know. And why B&W? If foreground detail is going to be a feature of the image, then color would surely help.

The image is essentially in 2 halves with nothing much to integrate the 2 halves. A jutting cactus plant, distorted tree shape or interesting rock in the immediate foreground would have helped.
The image is B&W because it was shot in the rain and there really isn't any color anyway. But I think you're on to something with the suggestion that the lower foreground doesn't add that much to the image. I've already cropped some off the bottom; I'll experiment with cropping off some more.

Check to see if your firewall allows traffic on port 81. I have several sites hosted, and my image gallery is on port 81, and other sites on different ports on the same public IP address. Eventually I'll get another router so that I can move the site to its own public IP address, but I've had other financial priorities lately.

Thanks, the beauty of this program is that you could go very painterly or sublte. When printed the texture really comes alive. This was a photograph originaly.

It wasn't too cold yesterday so I went out onto the river to take pictures of Ravens. Since the ice is bright and the birds are black sometimes exposure is a problem.

I liked the first picture a lot at first.



Then I spent some time reading about Camera Raw and reduced the exposure. The bird comes out much blacker, I don't think any detail is lost.



I like the contrast between black and yellow in this one. I wish I had shot it in RAW as well.

Hi Bob,

Nice pics, thanks for sharing. I like the light and movement of the first one a lot.

Cheers,

Hi,
 
  Haven’t been here for a while. A couple of you wrote and asked about any new images. I moved everything  to a new location,  it’s a transitional site. I’ve been on several excursions since then. So,  If any of you are interested ,  please take look. Oh! Yes I still shoot with film (i.e. Medium Format - Pentax 67II and 35 mm - Canon 1V with an assortment of lenses). And least I forget, dare I mention “Velvia and E100 VS” film. The last time I mentioned film cameras I got several personal flames to my old email address. It would seem several of you  regard  film cameras as tantamount to being a blasphmere. And I won’t even bring  up Velvia. There is very little editing done in Photoshop and the only filters I use are Nds and a polarizer. I  know  we’re in the digital age, I use to be a Senior IT tech person until I fought to retrieve my sanity. One day perhaps digital ...  that’s in the future. Ah... It  would be nice to have an unlimited budget. My Lord, I’m even still using Photoshop CS.  There seems to be an endless pixel, latest gadget, my camera can beat up you camera diatribe happen'n all over the Web. But anyway, the camera to me is just a translation device. The most important part of photography to me, are eyes and paying attention to what’s happening around us.
 
Well, I’m headed out again to backpack into the High Sierras to use my eyes.

Frames have nothing to do with anything.  Right click on the image you want to display, choose properties, then paste the address into the forum here as he showed above.

I don't think taste is indisputable.

I think criticism is fine as long as the object is to engage in a constructive exercise. I don't actually see that there is any value in the photographer feeling obliged to not reply. All of this is assuming that the participants on this forum are not engaged primarily in a childish competition. There are lots of places on the net that welcome mud-slinging contests.

One of the most refreshing aspects of LL is that it seems to be mostly peopled by reasonable people engaged in a professional or semi-professional manner with an art practice.
