viorel: First of all, I'm Romanian. From artistic perspective, these pictures are good. Not astoundingly good, I have seen better though. But for this reason they are better fit on a dedicated photography artistic website. This is a technical website. Because of this, there are a lot of folks that view these not from pure artistic perspective but mixing with other rationals.
And as a rule, mixing art and politics is not good.
Also the intent matters most. I have read more about this guy, with this occasion and also seen his similarly subjected photos from HU (check his website and Koch gallery). Nothing to worry about, I don't think it is propaganda as some believe.
But it is also a true fact that sensitivities run high in the area, the reason for some reactions.
All the best and good shooting! Viorel

Brad,Thanks for comment. I haven't said the content is less appropriate for users of technical forums, only that there are fewer people here eager to see these photos with a pure photographic eye because on a technical or general forum the people's main interests/objectives vary so adjacent/collateral discussions or divagations from the artistic side are more prone to appear. I would like to see dpreview evolving in the way you said, rather faster than slower, because personally, I do not think the technics is key element in photography.
Regarding your second point, for sure you are the better expert in art. Obviously since beginnings of humanity art and politics were intricate, art was used (often abused) by politics for the own agenda as well as art/culture is using politics to expand own ideas (but also quite often seen to undermine politics). My statement was primarily directed to the first part, i.e. where art was often abused by politics (as it happened in communism),

Come on, surely they have misplaced the coma in the price. It must be 9.999 $ and selling in toy stores...wait: 100%discount for the approaching Christmas so don't rush to buy now...

Honestly, this is pure mock up of stupidity.
