Hi,
Thanks for your thoughts. Where is the “correct info” feature and is that something you can only do to your own photos or someone else’s?
I can see why the softly softly approach should be...

Photo Comments

The Photo Comments section under every photo asks you to "share your thoughts". But as I seem to have found, and I'm intrigued to know if it's just me, the comment is only published if it’s 100%...

Fair dos, I am sorry I went off on one. I just find blunt rude that's all. Constructive critasism is much friendlier and helpful in the long run. I work in a photography department where we do it all...

Thanks, I hope theirs no hard feelings. Like I say some people are paranoid about grammar and spelling, critiquing is my bug bear.
Cheers,

Just because some people are blunt doesn't make it right now does it. I just think that everyone would get more out the forum with better critiquing. I'm sorry if that's not how things are done...

Hi,
"I pointed out four things I did not like about the shot. How is that not helpful?"

That's my point exactly, it's a negative way of critiquing and that's what I find unfriendly.

"But you...

I often agree with your comments when I read threads but I just think your a bit too blunt in the way you say them which makes you sound patronising. I just think you need to expand on your comments...

I was always though that when critiquing photos start with a positive, Joe starts with a big negative that I found insulting stating that he doesn't like the shot and it is a “waste of time” doing...

Joe I've got to say your ability to critique photos is probably the worst I've ever come across. Your comments are patronising and unhelpful to both the photographer and anyone else who's viewing the...

Good spot, I'll see what I can do about that and try again, that way I've tried to fix the shot over a straight appeal and I'll add a short explanation to the screener. Hopefully I'll get a different...

Thoughts please on this bad angle rejection...

Hi,
Not uploaded for a while, I was looking for some fresh material. I tried 2 today, one I was confident about as it was a nice shot and a bog standard angle. The second shot was my favourite of...

Hi,
Shouldn't the "High Sun" rejection only be used if the "High Sun" in question is in some way detrimental to the image though? Looking at the shot shooting later in the day would add shadows that...

The technical legal term for this is puffery. This states that it is reasonable for adverts to exaggerate their product in order to help promote that object or service. How often have you seen...

I admire your quest, I've only really got into rail photography over the last year or so and I very quickly got board of taking 3/4 front wedge shots. The railpictures.net rules are pretty...

Hi,
What a great looking engine! 1st photo, I'm afraid it's a bit too obvious that you've added some sky at the top to balance to shot as I can see the banding. The white's in the sky are also...

The one comment I would make is that the white's are clipping. This is particularly visible on the engine and coach roof both of which have lost detail because of it. Even if you fix crop in the...

Idiots who put our hobby at risk

I'm not suggesting anyone here would be daft enough to get themselves into this position, but it's always good to look out for others with less common sense who could potentially spoil our...

It would make a nice long panorama but RP doesn't allow those for some daft reason so for a side on like that you need something to fill the rest of the frame with. The Pagoda is nice, I like that....

I can see where your coming from, it looses a lot of the platform which is a little distracting. It seems a shame to crop the second engine out completly though. I'll try a different shot from the...

Thanks, I'll try that. I don't think I'm going to win with the first shot. I composed the shot to show the unusual name plate but also show it in situ, the second engine is just a bonus really...

Thoughts please...

Hi,
Yes, I've had 2 more rejections. One's for bad dark so I'll just go tweak the exposure on that one and try it again. This one has been done for bad angle. Yes, some could say I don't learn and...
