  • [...] Hello! I guess we can agree to disagree - to me the whole point is to completely dry out arguments with trolls and therefore any wish to "use their own images against them" not a valid point ...
  • Hello! I beg to disagree - the only ones who will "benefit" are the trolls/brand-warriors who can now post their "comparisons" and say don't touch my images. I do think that in the long run, this ...
  • Hello! The best way to silence trolls is to ignore them, not to "prove" anything to them, which they don't care about in the first place. But, if you feel the need to prove someone wrong (as futile ...
  • Hello! Just trying to understand, why it is objectional in your opinion to respect if someone (over and over again) asks not to edit his images? Best, Alex
  • Hello! It''s good that we all are different - I myself find it rude and whatnot to see someone go on mingling with someone's images against his expressed will. Glad there is a clear rule now! And ...
  • Hello! By forcing one's vision upon others against their expressed will, the one doing the forcing is acting anything but civil. Finito. Best, Alex
  • Hello! Even so - why not simply tell him, but mingle with the image against his expressed will? The choice if he wanted to correct it should be his, not having the vision of others forced upon him ...
  • Hello! Ooooor he simply didn't care and liked the shot as it was and maybe would even accept people telling him about it (the straight forward way, like "did you notice the distortion?"), leaving ...
  • Hello! Or, maybe, just maybe, he posted where he posted deliberately, not wanting people to mess with what he posted and even less so after telling them he didn't want them to? Guess we will never ...

    Hello! Or use your thread as a starting point to exchange opinions - you know, discussion forum and stuff... ;) Best, Alex

    Hello! You can still express / help / criticise all you want with words under the new rule - the only thing not approved of is posting edits of images that are not your's without having asked the ...
  • Hi Peter! Did you know that there is a retouching forum here? Imo that is the place for editing and tweaking images, not other subforums that are for displaying one's work. Ignoring the wishes of ...

    Hello! My El Nikkors are very good at infinity - guess you will enjoy it. What is the minimum length of your adaption device, fully folded? The amount of useful movents at infinity will be limited ...
  • Selling one of my two Vivitar Series 1 450/4.5 mirror lenses was - in retrospect - a mistake, because years later my other copy broke. One of the lenses you hardly ever see, and I have not been...

    Hello! Two older shots of mine - both with a V1. Best, Alex
  • Hello! Do you have the same problem with subjects at a distance, when there is clear separation between it and the background? The setting in the samples will be a hit and miss situation for most ...
  • Replied in ... (n/t)
  • Absolutely! Best, Alex PS: if you feel the need to share more of your thoughts, you might want to use PM - sorry for the OT allready
  • Hello! Do as you please, to me it is posts like your's that make this an unnecessarily uncomfortable place to be around. But it does not really matter. Have it whichever way you please. Best, Alex
