I exclude myself from the above.

How wonderfully ambiguous, from someone so insistently precise ;-)

Your posts are still perfectly valid without you needing to contribute photographically…

Quite so.

…but you have to appreciate that they will be very undervalued by anybody who actually is a photographer.

Such is prejudice (and this would be prejudice based on ignorance).

Isaac I do apologise - on re-reading my post I should have written "......but you have to appreciate that they MAY be undervalued by anybody who actually is a photographer".

And I don't think that would be my prejudice - I would consider the comments on points of law by a qualified lawyer to have greater weight than those from a layman for example.  I read your posts regularly but when you are talking about photography I have to take your comments in light of your experience level in the medium.  And these comments are not specific to you so this is in no way a personal attack.

Best wishes

Jim

…to have greater weight…

1) I take people's forum comments on their own merit -- sometimes daft, sometimes insightful, sometimes uninformed, sometimes provocative (in a good way), sometimes mean-spirited, sometimes helpful, …


…in light of your experience level in the medium.

I make no pretence of being a professional photographer. I make no pretence of entering international photo contests. I regularly photograph to work-out-issues-with and further-develop previous photographs to my satisfaction.

"When you ask each of these questions while looking at the first drawing of your idea, the answers will show you what the problems are, and how to pursue solving them in your second drawing. And when you ask these questions of your second drawing, the answers will guide your third, and so on. Each drawing will be different and each will open doors of understanding."

Isaac in a little while there will be a knock on your front door. When you answer it there will be men in white coats asking for you to go with them. Don't struggle because it is for your own good. ;)

An interesting observation. However you missed out something important, humour.

Humour is exactly what your snide remarks lack: they are not funny, they are just insulting.
