Der Steppenwolf: There are a lot featured photographers here that have ONE thing in common. Could you guess what it is ?A tip, it's got NOTHING to do with photography at all.DPR has changed. A lot. To the worse.
Sheesh. What a bunch of sensitive souls. It's only photography, not religion (though you never know on this site).
Fantastic. This is not as easy as most think. Well done.
Sorry, I find this way overprocessed. Looks like one of those iron filings images. Pretty common trend, sad to say.
~Thematic & Vermeero: Steppenwolf didn't say this wasn't photography, he said that a lot of photographers here have one thing in common which has nothing to do with photography.
You don't see the difference? Maybe that's a clue.
Too little too late.
Nothing wrong with these pics, but they look so much like hundreds that have been posted here or printed & displayed elsewhere over the years. The cameras seem to evolve, but the resulting photography? Not so much.
I used to pop in here several times a week, now I look in maybe 3 or 4 times a year. I think DPR is stuck in having to cater primarily to new camera owners & thus everything old is new again as Peter Allen once put it so well to music.
Steve Throndson: Wonderful photo! The expression is pensive, perhaps sad, and very human-like. Nice BW conversion too.
Nah, it's all a matter of which side of the bars you're on. To him, YOU are the prisoner...& you know what? I think he's right. ;)
Nice catch, strange title. (Love & hate?) What am I missing unless it's about the shooter's subjective feelings?
The photographic market is saturated in users, devices & above all subjects. What's kept the interest going over the past ~10 years is the continuing novelty, flexibility & versatility of the products themselves. But as the novelty wears off in the newer platforms (mirrorless, iPhones) people become all too aware of the redundancy of their images. Same pics keep appearing over & over. Instagram is well-named. Saturation is the game. The few with imagination will survive.
tadaocern does this kind of thing far far better.
Gorgeous shot. Should have been #1.
tedolf: I hope that this is a family member.
This is a very unflattering/derogatory pose for a woman.
"Birdie" is also a derogatory word for a woman in UK affiliated countries.
"Look at the Birdie" is the title of the challenge, not of the photo. I think you are bringing a lot of your own baggage into your interpretations of this photo. Looks like classic street photography to me & apparently lots of others. (Though I'm sure the way things are going street photography will one day be banned for being politically incorrect.)
Love these flowers. They have a delicate beauty & an unbelievable fragrance.
Love it. Love Siameses.
Wonderful. Shoulda won!
Fabulous shot. What breed is this? Looks like a short-haired pointer with the ears of a coon hound. Love it.
Wow. Stunning shot!
"detail" might work better. :)
The bitter pettiness of the most "popular" comments on this article perfectly illustrates the pathetic state of amateur photography (or, preferably as a category: camera ownership) these days. Small wonder the majority of talented members of DPR left the site long ago .
What's a "DSC02865"?
