Looks like Jim pulled the lampshade from her mouth and she wants it back.

Hey, does it sound like this when you hit the horn button on the dash?

I want one of those horns for my car. Can the fat chick play the same tune with her mouth?

Where are the Y6s when you need them?

Wow Steven, what ISO speed were you using?

I'm going to strike this submission up to you having a Charlie Sheen moment and mopve on.

Basically, not enough blur to look purposefully. Looks more out of focus. Reflective tape looks point and shootererish. Lots of noise in the clouds and looks PIQ to me in the ground. Engine cut off at the very back.
I don't think the reference to Flickr was necessary. There are hundreds if not thousands of shots on there that are high quality photos. That is what makes this site come across as elitist when you start putting down every other site out there.

First you popped up the flash and that set the camera to 1/60, and then you missed the exposer and had to fix it in photoshop thats the speckles of noise. You have some reading to do so you can set the camera up right Steven.

Joe's statement does not convey the notion that every shot on Flickr is like that, at least in my reading. I see nothing elitist in saying that there are some shots like that on Flickr, which of course contains much too diverse a spectrum of shots to summarize in one simple sentence, and Joe did not do that in my view. So I don't see anything elitist in what he wrote.

Flickr has a LOT of really, REALLY bad shots. It also has some amazing ones. However, one would expect to see some very horrible photo on flickr, and have it rejected here.

I agree with your assessment of Joe's comment, J, just as I agree 100% with what he said. Flickr was just used as an example; whether or not someone posts on RP is irrelevant. Due to ignorance or bias, people tend to praise poor work in every facet of life, and photography is a great example of that.

Man, some people have a real chip on their shoulder for this place. As if NO ONE who posts shots or comments on flickr are elitists.
