In reply to:

Richard Franiec: Can anyone tell me why the Leica pictures showcased in the gallery are more special than what can be done with other manufacturers cameras/lenses?

I wrote that these pictures are real...good if You wish. I did not notice they were taken with a Leica. Who cares. These pictures touched something inside me and the camera make means then nothing. Mostly pictures today are plagiates with no soul. These had some. Camera...really who cares..

A long time has gone but now at last there are some real pictures in the gallery. I like the absurd. Usually the gallery images are useless cause everything looks the same in these resolutions. I´m a pro for 40 years and I still like pictures, not cameras. The rest of the world seems to like these "plastic hairdryers" called cameras. Human mind and imagination mean something, cameras just do not, they are just dull boxes. But then, most hobbyist are for cameras not for pictures. Everybody should read more books...then take pictures.

I wrote earlier in this thread that this work has been seen already and I was disappointed that DPREVIEW published it. And what answers did I get here and in my private mail. Hate, HATE and HATE.
I´ve been thinking why photography has so mauch hate in it when someone writes against common and fixed idea. There are very little conversations.
That has to be cause most of people in the industry nowadays have no education of photography and because most amateurs are camera addicts and know very little about photography. Word ART is used but very seldom it goes with the pictures under discussion. ART is something newly born and fresh. Not these bad instagram copies everywhere. Photography as profession and hobby is dying...because of us. I´m a pro photojournalist and I did loose my job cause amateurs hand their pictures for free. Same goes with many my pro friends all over the world. Dpreview should not encourage amateurs by showing copied crap. Moral pls come back from where You went.

The author stands on the table with human size piece of a puzzle.....imaginative? Or is this a joke maybe?

As You may look, his "work" are just bad copies of someone elses work and what I wrote was totally right.

Dear Der Steppenwolf.
I use my own name to write about things. You do not. I´m not a coward.
These pictures started to emerge right after Photoshop came out. This is called kitch. But photography. No. Look back to 1995-2000 amateur material and You see this kind of material everywhere. Everybody can and must do this kind of hmmm "art" if they please, but this site is supposed to be about photography.
Anger is another thing..Why are You calling ME a joke when I write about someone´s pictures? And still another thing. An editor may write a critics about grand piano concert in a newspaper, but nobody expects the editor to know how to play!
Perhaps we who shoot pictures are a bit more stupid than those who are really into ART. These collages are not art ... just PS studies. When PS was Young we saw these in tens of thousands everywhere.

Well...maybe there were a couple of amateur photographers who willingly delivered free pictures for media. That way the photojournalism has died everywhere, thank´s to amateurs or amatures as people from US write it.

Only double full moon, Saturn, some ISIS troops with black flags and an elephant standing on his nose are missing. Viva Photoshop.

Yup, that's the DPR audience alright!

That`s what photography is today. These people do not make pictures they test their cameras. You hit the nail here.

I do understand Adobe. In Russia almost all Photoshops are copies and the same goes with almost all countries I´v visited. Who was able - he did steal Photoshop.
That is not right and the same goes with pictures. As a pro I see all my pictures stolen when in upload something to web. Morals are long gone.

jorepuusa: Wonderful pictures of war planes, but where are the pictures of US military planes bombing children and other civilians to pieces? Cannot see any. Romanticizeing killing machines feels absurd.

Christom...still asking. Why You are so afraid that You cannot use Your own name here? In can, jore puusa is my name- It is easy --behind a nickname-- to write that patriotic crap that Your singleminded rightist school system has put in You. I just wonder why america calls itself a democracy. If one does not have money, he cannot be elected anywhere. Is that what You are defending?
This started from pictures of killing machines. So You like killing people in other countries. And, Taleban is fighting for their country USA is invading, so would You- if Taleban attacket USA.
I say nothing about if they are right or wrong, but they are nationalists as You. You do not get the bigger picture at all. Just let the other nations do what they do and keep out of killing civilians all around. That is why all hate You and that is where terrorism starts. If someone innocent loses his child ( collateral or not) he`ll hate You for ever. USA is the reason for terrorism.

Christom, You speak about freedom but You are not free enough to use Your own name here. That is coward action.
There are no americans, You are all europeans who left to America because of religious reasons.
Taliban is fighting for their country which USA is invading... The way USA equipped Taliban is doing it is another matter and another matter is their dark interpretation of Islam. But still they are people who love their country which has been taken by US terrorist.
This poor christon asks me to think what indians did to settlers. The indians were trying to fight against those who tried to steal their country. Indians were native americans and loved their country which was stolen by whites who drove indians to reservates to die off tuberculosis and booze.
The school system in USA teaches history etc like communists did in SOviet Union. Onesided and false. So sad that he and other americans believe that we love them because of Disneyland, bad movies and soap and handguns.

Don´t know who You answer to "Howaboutraw".
USA sent military equipment to Soviet Union via Murmansk from 1942.
US made AiraCobra fighters killed thousands of Finnish soldiers in hands of Soviet pilots. Hypocritical is the US way and we small countries pay the bill.
This all started when I saw the ultranationalist US flag showing in cockpit ...machines that kill are not made for fun and the weakest are those who suffer the most..been a war photographer ( in Afganistan too) I know what I´m writing about.

@jorepuusa Rubbish. You would be part of Germany or Russia right now had it not been for the USA and the Western Allies.
---------
Unbelievable. You do not know history. USA and Finland were in opposite sides in WWII. And Finland an economic aid to Soviet...Hah. Look at the map and the sizes of two countries.. and try to say again that we helped anything.
Now I understand the state of teaching of history in anglo american countries there seems to be none. Settlers killed hundreds of thousands of native americans ( diseases etc) and pushed them to reservates---democracy????

rjaywallace: I apologize for the unappreciative comments of others - flaming a**holes. Your well-crafted images are at their best telling the story of the moment. Veritable "street photography" of the air. You do a masterful job and certainly deserve to be very proud of the results. You have clearly amassed many of the skills needed to control the photographic medium. I stand in awe, sir.

I apologize that rjaywallace has to call me an a...hole for my opinions. Photography does not live alone in the society, it is tied in these worst inventions of mankind. Those are toys of warmongers.
I´m very proud to be an a...hole and at the same time a human being sorry for killing and torturing.

I live in Finland and I started this thread about US killing machines. We are a free and much more democratic country than USA cause those running for parliament or presidency here do not need to collect millions of dollars to be elected like in USA where only the rich can influence in politics.
But.
To thank America for a free Finland, bullsh.... USA delivered war airplanes for Soviet Union in WWII to kill Finnish soldiers who tried to save Finland from Soviet invasion. We got absolutely no help from USA in WW2 to fight for democracy. Not did Estonia fyi.
Second world war came cause winner states USA among them tried to totally destroy germany after wwI. Most of the wars and destruction during last 100 years are because of USA in some way. And how about Indians, did they have democratic rights...in USA...when settlers killed them...

Winner takes pictures and leaves the homosexual couple without any protection. What if they are killed because the violent way russians think about different people. This is not moral and this is something I call social porn, meaning the photog first uses these people and then leaves them behind selling pictures and earning money.
I have been a professional photojournalist for over 40 years - shooting for AP, UPI etc.and I know several cases, when a published picture has led to the murder of those in pictures. We as journalists have no right to risk those who are in our stories and pictures, that´s why some reporters use anonymity for those who tell something risky in their stories.
Russia is a violent country, they kill editors, different minded and gays all the time. And murders happen in other countries too when gays and activists and editors leave Russia.

On Nickels in the Depressing (capture date rule) B/W challenge (11 comments in total)

No, You did not ask my opinion, but as far this is an open forum You get one whether You brave nickname like it or not.
I asked You questions and would like to have answers.
Alltough You are cowardly behind a nick You might try to think how Your picture seen by thousands of people might spoil someones life for ever.
I`m not writing here about my career as journalist but about this very picture that steals this poor man human rights. And You did it.
That is the point and this is where societies are going to.
We do not care about others anymore we just use them as You do here. He is just a thing for You, not human being.
As I wrote, he might have children and somewhere a child my say at the moment:"Mom I´m not going to school cause they bully me, why does dad has to drink and be in the pictures?
Got my point nickname?
