Mirrorless Crusader: This is a pathetic excuse for an award-winning photo project. There is absolutely zero technical skill demonstrated in these photos; anybody who happened to be hanging around some soldiers in Ukraine could have taken these with a consumer DSLR set to auto and the kit zoom lens. The composition is awful, there was no thought at all put into the white balance and colors, no action photos, nothing to demonstrate that a skilled photographer captured these images. I could have done better than this if I had nothing to do all day but fly to Ukraine and snap army pictures.

I'm just replying to what's posted... same as you! Perhaps you're the one in need of reading, or comprehension???

And in sticking to the thread... I thought the poster was quite dismissive of the risk, as well as talent it takes to get those images. Thus the statement I stick with.

Peace.

If it's so easy, you should have no problem going to a war torn area with your camera gear, bullets flying all around you, and get those award winning shots. After all, anyone can do it.

You up for the challenge?

Stacey_K: I have to agree with other posters. These awards, like the news, promote the display of the worst side of humanity. What's next, an award of excellence given to someone who goes around photographing the gruesome details from car crash scenes? It borders on voyeurism. I have zero interest in viewing these type "projects" anymore than I would slow down driving by a crash site to get a better look.

What are we supposed to do? Bury our heads in the sand and act like people aren't warring? Someone has to know what's going on in the world and these guys bring it.

I'll also add that it takes a lot of balls to do what these guys and gals are doing and it isn't for the faint of heart. So yeah, why not reward them? It's easy to criticize from the comfort of your home when you don't have bullets flying at you!

Everyone wants peace, but human nature is war. Look no further than history.

On Vacuum Tubes in the Old Household Tech challenge (5 comments in total)

Steve congrats on your first place win. Absolutely love the color in this image. The tubes themselves remind me of my youth when I use to go to the local drug store and buy replacement tubes for either our T.V. or radio.

This image makes it seem like it was just yesterday that I was in Katz drugstore picking out replacement tubes.

Excellent image. Peace.

ADMint: "In late January, Nikon will announce details to service cameras from users, free of charge"

However our "impact damage" policy will be in full effect since we need to balance the cost of repairing those faulty cameras.

Additionally you can expect to see the new D760 in a store near you soon.

The Nikon Way.

Thanks, I liked it :)

In reply to:

ADMint: I'll echo what RuthC said, though I'd add impressive as well.

Congrats on first place. I've not looked at the other images, but this is simply impressive.

BTW curiosity is begging to know how you got this shot? Do tell.

Thanks for the info. I had a feeling it was from air. You sure took advantage of that flight. Again, Impressive shot.

Again, thanks for the info, a back story always adds to an image.

Peace.

On Stairs - Tate Britain in the Olympus OMD Series challenge (19 comments in total)
In reply to:

shutterbud: This is image drags your eye, but upon closer/longer examination there seems something off about it. I don't know what. Perhaps it is the unreality of the scene? That is its power but also its weakness, as if the photographer decided that what was in front of him wasn't interesting enought to shoot 'as is' and so had to manipulate both the frame and the viewer.

shutterbud I believe you are the one that's blind. Blind to the art of creativity, bounded by unnecessary rules.

@ yrr, Great B&W image. Love the way the dark and light tones plays with your eyes. Well done.

jl_smith: Wow, all these haters, you'd imagine they could do such a better job.

Yet, you click on 99% of their names:

Gallery Stats : Photos Uploaded - 0

Challenge Stats : Entries - 0

Website : none listed

I propose DPR give many of them a new profile stat:

Credibility - 0

:D

And I'm also the kind that says what's on my mind :-)

Peace
