In reply to:

Gregefalk: If you record videos and doesn't have a crew, you will at times need to check your placement in the frame. All this talk about "selfies" is just a wast of time and effort. It's like saying nobody needs a 100mm lens, because I don't need one... almost.
If the ability to take selfies will make cameras useless for other photographers, I can understand the amount of preaching about the immorality of selfies.

Not the immorality of it, its hubris-icity !

In reply to:

OlyPent: Going places is now considered by teens and millenials as providing more "bragging rights" than owning things, hence selfies all the time, to prove they were there.
So, while at age 30 they may live in rat-hole apartments (whereas their parents owned houses by then) at least they can say, "I was in Bora-Bora!!"

Agreed !

belle100: From the pictures of 8x8 to 32x32 above, it's too good to be true I am afraid.

Or too good to be innocent ?

It seems that GoPro CIO needs a new teck deck for his high-tech yatch ?

Kenny J: Isn't this misleading? You state "Prices vary by plan, but users are reporting around a £10 per month increase."
It's only a couple of quid increase - taking it upto about a tenner, rather than an increase of a tenner.

Yeah, who would ever have imagine such a thing ! 👅

Light Pilgrim: Well, what's the big deal? I got an eMail from Adobe Russia that starting May this year I will need to pay 30% more.

Fauler_Beamter: so, they burnt our money without taking responsibility themselves then... and blame the failed kickstarter project for going out of business now?

At least, that's what I've understood.

WilliamJ: When I was a student in art, some of my mates were guys from Lebanon where war was all rage and pain. Some of these guys wanted to fight but their fortunated parents perfectly preference prefered to pay to have them out of the battle fields.

And these guys did not want to study art at all, so what ? They could not stop drawing weapons. Using art for expressing weapons and violence is bad sign: the "artist" is in this case either traumatized or childish !

To samfan who says: Or they just make art that transgresses your definition.

Are you kidding ? Everyone who ever got or heard a camera able to shot at 8f/s or more have unavoidably thought it sounded like a machine gun. Comparing a camera to a gun is just a huge cliché. Plain & simple.

By the way there is a poster these days in Tokyo shiwing a machine gun like camera to promote an exhibition... It's a stereotype and nothing else, see it how you want.

In reply to:

WilliamJ: Crazy ! How such a photo can get any prize ! Some here wondered themselves whether the girl had arms or not, that could explain how she seems to feel down... Not at all: that's just a young girl, a "normal girl" who has been asked to play "I'm pretty and bored" why wearing some clothes that create a poor "visual pun" with the wall. Period.

Here are some other pictures of the same photographer: http://next.liberation.fr/culture-next/2016/11/18/clementine-schneidermann-une-photographie-de-mode-sociale_1528546

Not "why wearing" but "while wearing"

In reply to:

Clint Dunn: I wonder if she would have won if she hadn't titled the photo, 'The Unbearable, the Sadness and the Rest'.

Step one - Take average photo
Step two - Create artsy, fartsie title to try and give meaning to said photo.

For my part, I feel she would have won with any photo. Almost every contests are biaised in a way or another, I think.
