Default Photos You Hate!

and now you love them! How many photos have you seen get accepted and you say to yourself, that is horrible, how that get in? Then later you see it again and go I really like that shot and I can't believe I didn't like it before. Some take awhile to grow on me.
Or... is there a photo you liked and now you don't?

I started shooting B&W in high school so i tend to like it better than the younger guys do. One thing about B&W is you didn't shoot with the light the same way as color film, Side lit was best, so i still like the half dark noes and or strong back light that makes b&w pop.

So i tend to like the odd lit shots, I don't mind the HDR shots as long as they don't hold the hole shot to one mid-tone, That just kills it in my book. Deep Contrast makes it look right or more normal as if your looking in to the Light.

Im not going to go back and point out the shots you picked out, thats for your guys eyes to see if they worked or not.

I struggle to say that I love these photos due to a few minor quibbles, but they certainly work IMO.

Really.......what? Do you like this shot now or not? If not, you're missing the point of this thread...

Maybe everyone who posts an image should say whether they went love->hate or hate->love.

Separate question: what is up with this BNSF night shot? It looks like all the data for the snow got corrupted or deleted and is being displayed as a uniform area of blank off-white! It's weird! Is it my monitor?

Good point. Bottom line, this thread's not about photos you hate from the get-go and still hate!

There doesn't always have to be an explanation or reason for everything. Something either appeals to you, or it doesn't. Heck, I might change my mind back to NOT liking Alex's shot, but therein lies the beauty of that picture. There's a certain compelling quality that makes you keep looking and looking at it.

OK, there's my reason. You got me after all.

I wasn't trying to "get you." Sheesh, what a conspiracy guy you are, first RP, now people in the forums.

All I wanted to know is whether the shot appealed to you then, or now? I wasn't looking for an explanation. You didn't communicate well then, now you did.

Perhaps you missed Travis' sentence beginning with "Or".

Travis left the topic open-ended:

If people post a shot without explaining which option applies to the photo, everyone's left to guess.

Sorry, my paranoia was unintended.

I guess I missed Travis' "Or". OR, I didn't read his post carefully, and I suppose I was thinking positively and didn't notice the part about liking a picture and then NOT liking one. I don't believe the latter has ever happened to me. I guess I don't dissect and nit-pick pictures to death until I find a self-perceived flaw as much as others, OR I'm not that critical after all!

As usual, a thread digresses....

Holy crap, I missed that earlier when I looked at it. I appears the screener flat out missed it, too.

Christopher, what the heck did you do to the snow when you were processing that picture?

I had taken several shots of this train... unfortunately the lights they put up on the east end of the yard are those horrible yellow/orange glow lights and it made the snow look like it was orange sherbert.

I'd love to see the original to try to figure out what you did to that snow in the processing.

I had to look at the photo to see what you were talking about... I certainly see it now. I am going to review the original when I get home (still on vacation) and will be replacing that photo. I had used the shadow/highlight tool selectively and I obviously didn't make a good adjustment. I just can't believe I didn't notice that when I uploaded it.
