this is brilliant.
Downloading apps to calculate sun position and tides...makes me laugh. Technology running rampant to compensate for lack of basic skills.
MrClick: I beg to differ. This article is quite boring in my personal opinion... unless one is a newbie to this field. There is nothing much to learn at all. What the author suggests is something many of us simply do as second nature.
I think the comments to this article are more interesting and informative (both for enthusiasts and newbies!) than the main article above.
MrClick speaks truth.
way to go, dude - nice shot!

I was expecting *No Nudity*, because that seems to be what so many (almost all) of our Challenge hosts expect, but for whatever reason nobody had made *No Nudity* the actual subject of a challenge. So I feel like I broke new ground with this one. I was a bit disappointed in all the challenge participants who (lamely) tried to convey various human genitalia with their posed snaps of vegetables, fruits and flowers. How unoriginal,. how uninspiring...--My Art, Your Pleasurehttp://mahalo.homestead.com/bananamama1.jpg
Clearly exemplifies the "no nudity" theme quite nicely. Kudos to you, sir!--My Art, Your Pleasurehttp://mahalo.homestead.com/bananamama1.jpg
Probably.Everyone else is looking elsewhere...--My Art, Your Pleasurehttp://mahalo.homestead.com/bananamama1.jpg
This photo of mine was disqualified by the challenge host for not being lomography. and now it's back in the running and tied for 50yh place?
Sorry, but it would only be confusing if one didn't read the rules. You know about the rules? Read them. They are very clear.--My Art, Your Pleasurehttp://mahalo.homestead.com/bananamama1.jpg
Well, i think your focusing on the drums rather than the drummer did you in here. You can't have music without musicians, so to make the drummer the secondary subject in favor of the drums strikes me as a bit disingenuous. Most people are going to be attaracted to the human element in a photo, if there is one. Unless, of course, you are mainly interested in the instrument (maybe for a book on drums or a technical magazine or catalogue on percussion instruments). --My Art, Your Pleasurehttp://mahalo.homestead.com/bananamama1.jpg
a fine photo indeed.
My post to the winning entry reveals nothing of what you thought it did. It was a tongue in cheek comment that one would expect. A parody.
The shot of the lady in a sari may truly be unusual, but that doesn't make it a good shot. Simply going against the "eurocentric' grain does not a good photo make. Think about it.--My Art, Your Pleasurehttp://mahalo.homestead.com/bananamama1.jpg
i disagree. this shot shows neither imagination nor skill. it is a classic snapshot. the fact that it deviates (drastically) from the classic glamour "cheesecake" shots of young, athletic and pretty women does not, inherently, imbue it with more merit.--My Art, Your Pleasurehttp://mahalo.homestead.com/bananamama1.jpg
is the Subject.
