On article Opinion: Park vandals need to be stopped (338 comments in total)

I am almost as amazed at some of the answers here as I am of the destructive inclination of some of my fellow humans. We (as a human race) are rather sad on both counts.

FYI: for the judges, we are both professional landscape photographers. SO this is legitimately capturing someone at work.

On photo Roman's Tree in Reilly Diefenbach's photo gallery (1 comment in total)

Very nicely done. Love the composition and it has all its leaves still on it. My last one has almost no leave on it.

But in your other post you mention that as THE tree...and it isn't THAT tree. The other tree your talking about is much closer to the main gate.

On article Breaking the Rules (142 comments in total)
In reply to:

JDThomas: “Consulting the rules of composition before taking a photograph, is like consulting the laws of gravity before going for a walk.” – Edward Weston

“The so-called rules of photographic composition are, in my opinion, invalid, irrelevant and immaterial” – Ansel Adams

In my first book I mentioned these two quotes, right afterward I pointed out this: Find me an Ansel Adams or Edward Weston image that DOESN'T follow at least ONE rule of composition. You can't. The reason why these photographers art is considered great is simply because they followed these rules intuitively.

Edward Weston didn't need to consult the rules of composition, his brain and eye naturally saw that way. Not all photographers are lucky enough to have that talent. Most of us have to think about it and work at composing compelling images. More often than not when you THINK you're breaking a rule take a closer look and you'll probably see that you have followed one of the rules of composition perfectly.

More than intuition...they LOVED what they were doing and shooting.

That is the key between good and great photographs. Rules mean nothing till you add in the human souls element.

The greatest rule of composition is appreciation. Love what your doing....love what your shooting.

It's GOOD to know the rules of composition. these are stepping stones to fully understanding the CONCEPT of composition.

The best photography is about emotion. No rules there but exploration of self.

Shoot on my brothers and sisters!!!!......shoot on!!!!

In reply to:

Kampbyll Photography: PS is ok , but my view point is very simple , PS to me is an excuse not to buy better equipment , i personally would rather have the best equipment than there is no need to waste my time in PS , i have no need to go to Photo Shop , my pictures look great like they are , and those who waste time there should just upgrade there camera , better yet take better pictures!

Kampbyll Photography, that’s the silliest reply I have seen in years. I am with CSImagery.....please show us your perfection to back up your words. Hummmm I wonder why Photoshop is the industry standard for photographers all over the planet? It must be because all those professionals don’t know what they are all doing. Educate us.....show us your mastery.
I Double Dog dare ya!
