A very arrogant position in the first place & a bald-faced denial in the second. Glad I terminated my 500+ image pro account at (barely a) flickr.
This new version of Flickr is a navigational nightmare & it's not just a matter of getting used to. As a longtime SW developer I call this the "No Way Out" school of design. It looks like the site's been hacked.
"...concentrate on orchestrating your talking image in a pleasing way."Hard to parse this sentence. What does it even mean? Orchestrating a "talking" image?
Interesting. Now Flickr has managed to shed the last of its individuality, originality & uniqueness & looks like every other eye-candy website that holds your attention for about 5 seconds .
If this is the direction Yahoo takeovers are heading, I give MM < 3 years at the helm.
Toemel: This is the end of flickr as we knew it... I don't even dare to imagine what kind of "photographers" this new slimy crap will attract. At least yahoo could offer us an alternative layout to view things, to get rid of the unnecessary "features" introduced for the "gregarious" people who end up here in search of another "social" experience after playing around with twitter and facebook for hours... :[
~ Grumpyrocker - Get real. Photo-sharing sites are by nature "elitist". Your comment is an attack on this commenter so in effect you 're being elitist youself . Stop playing sophist word games.
Looks a lot like Manhattan. ;)
Adobe sees themselves losing the lower end of their market to Instagram-style instant filter systems so they are optimizing revenue from the upper end. It's a gamble but it might work. Personally, as a user from PS 5 through 11 (CS4) I'd switch down to PSE before I ever went to the cloud subscription.
Terrific shot & processing!!
facedodge: These are all great tips if you want to be like William Klein... I think the real lesson of William Klein is to not try and be William Klein. I think Eric missed this point.
Number three is "go against the grain". I don't think William cared which way the grain went. He went his way and that was that. Following Eric's advise on to go against the grain precludes needing to know which way is with and which way is against.
Find your vision and have the courage to develop it regardless of direction of grain. William Klein did so and we can too.
& yours, mondophoto, is the twinkie response.
If looks were everything Fuji would have my votes hands down. Maybe because they still have "film" in their name their cameras, especially this series, look really classic.
Looks like a lot of rigged votes in this challenge. :(((
How could I not vote for those eyes...(sigh)
Terrific! Especially how all the textural details blend.
Stunning shot. Never seen one of these. I'll have to look it up.Congratulations!
If votes here counted for weirdest, the Passionflower would win by a mile. Including my own entry. ;)
StevenE: I would not be comfortable doing this.
More importantly, I think you get better photos from co-operative subjects, and you find many more opportunities and stories by going up and talking to your subject first.
Cy Cheze you made my day.
I keep entering a shot taken with a Nikon D300 with a Nikon 35mm 1.8D lens & you keep disqualifying it.
35mm on an APS-C camera is equivalent to 50mm on FF. What more do you need????
Combatants, arm yourselves! The Google peek-a-boo wars have begun.
Great shot. That's some breakfast!
