do we need to add caveats to images?
Jun 22, 2012

in light of the..."these images are terrible, and/or "insert camera model" operators are not very good photographers" posts...do we reallly need to, or should we, label images as technical, artistic, and/or open to CC?

it is quite evident folks are "confused" as to the purpose of many posted images and then proceed to in a somewhat inappropriate/questionable manner.

i post images to show performance of the gear that was used to acquire images.

-no amount of negative criticism regarding subject matter, compostion, and, any/all other artistic merits would be insulting my images as all manner of criticism could vey well be justified.

i simply strive to shoot these type of images as technically correct as possible (focus, exposure-IQ).

i have never posted(to any web site/forum) my "personal best/favorite images" for CC or otherwise. maybe some folks do.
