    That's yourself included in that lot.

    Not all of us developed the internet.


    You still should keep to yourself

    The implication is that a technically brilliant photograph somehow
    isn't artistic.
    This is bullshit, of course. The fact is that your pics are neither
    technically passable nor artistic in any sense that anyone can see.
    Whatever emotion you think you are trying to convey gets lost when you
    make glaring errors like you did in the photo just posted. This may
    get lost on the old women who look at your canvas prints at your
    weekend stall, but to anyone having a passing interest in photography
    your errors will stand out like a sore thumb.

    That pic looks like the work of a child taking her first year class in
    Photography, not the work of a working pro with 3000 years
    experience.
    You should be embarrassed.

    Douglas,
    You tell a very good love story. The image just misses it by a
    inch. The softness of the image does bring a feeling of dreaminess.
    But, the positioning of the couple does not bring across that love
    story. It is as if the man isn't the groom but the best man sneaking a
    last kiss before the wedding. The position of the lady's shoulders
    seem to want to block the mans advances. Her eyes seem to be looking
    behind him to see if the groom is coming to save her.
    Very good idea for the image. To bad the subjects were cooperating.

    Just my two cents and I hope you can keep posting.

    So "hand made" means "Photoshopped?"
    Damn, who knew I'd been making hand-made images all this time?

    "Photographs developed in chemicals" is usually called film.
    These can be printed on a number of different printers, however.
    How do you make am optical print from a digital file? I thought you
    had to use a film recorder or something like that?
    So are these advertised as not genuine?
    More non genuine prints. Are they advertised as such?
    Only working photographers with questionable ethics and business
    practices.
    You sir, are more shady than my back yard.

    " The implication is that a technically brilliant photograph somehow

    This is so true. When technical excellence and the emotion of the
    moment are captured.....you have what every photographer strives to
    achieve.
    Check out your local art gallery and see the paintings and photographs
    of the Masters. There are birds, ducks, portraits famous golfers,
    etc. They are far from being mundane.

    Well truth be told I have Doggie killfiled so don't see anything from him,
    just the responses and I usually don't look at them but this seemed to be
    generating some discussion and well you know what happens next with that
    ole' curiosity thing. ;-)

    Anyway I actually thought it may have been one of his okay ones so had to
    have a look, damn, got me a again, that really was off the bad end of the
    scale and no coming back............. :-(

    1992? I first saw a pony tail on a guy in 1959. It's the only way to
    keep the Sampson image and not get hair in your soup! Unless of course
    you come across a female hairdresser - named Delila...

    There is an alternative society in Australia where people who can afford
    to be different, often are.

    It always gives me a chuckle when a couple of my neighbors take the
    ferry to Brisbane and get their Harley's out of a security store to
    blast off into the wilds of suburbia... If the battery is flat they call
    out the RACQ. Too old and feeble to kick start 'em! Ha, ha, ha.

    She arrived from Moscow - a relatively low humidity city - to Brisbane,
    a city with 68% humidity and 28C temperature.

    A similar climate to where "gone with the wind" was set in. Perspiration
    (ladies don't sweat) was a natural consequence of the climate change.

    Have you no romance in your soul, Frank?

    I'm sorry...
    Applications for my fan club have now closed. Unfortunately you failed
    to meet the standard required for membership. It requires firstly that
    you are human... You failed.

    The curious thing about your attacks on me is how they intensify when
    you discover they have no effect. Do you really think you are achieving
    anything but your own destruction in doing this?

    If I thought for a single moment your comments were anything other than
    an attack of jealousy, I might be concerned by them.

    Interestingly enough, you have an intense preoccupation with illegally
    downloading my photos and pasting your pornography into them. Your
    obsession with me is flattering in the extreme but reaching the point of
    stalking.

    So here's a tip for you that has gotten me world wide recognition as a
    photographer and a full booking sheet for wedding photography for the
    rest of this year and most of next year...

    Never try and sell sand to an Arab or ice the an Eskimo.

    Far from me being embarrassed, it is you who should be embarrassed for
    the way normal people pity rather than scorn you. Your pathetic and
    constant attacks on me are well documented at http://www.annika1980.com.

    Why you tried to crack my seller account at Ebay after your attempt to
    disrupt the sale of my panoramas failed, is something you really ought
    to seek help about.

    The obsession you have with stealing and illegally altering my clearly
    copyrighted images and turning them into pornography is probably the
    most indicative example yet, of a pathetic little wannabe turned
    stalker... Why? It'll only lead to your own demise.

  14. YAWN, you stop reading his crap for a month unkillfile him and it is the

  15. Yes, I read your story online, I didn't realise you were in Austria.
    Must have a lot of time on your hands now you don;t have to feed the 7
    people in the basement.
    She has been here 'umteen' times but still cant speak English. The bonus
    is she wont pass the entrance test and will be sent back to Siberia.
    Was this back in the days of the real MAIL ORDER BRIDE or one of those
    online scams?

    No
    One expense was spared, ON PHOTOGRAPHY

    And why not?
    She wont get in.

  16. Your DESCRIPTION of the photo is syrupy romantic and flowery, but the PHOTO
    looks like she's asking him, "Why are you sticking your nose in my eye?"

  17. WOW! It's an excellent capture of the mood and you portrayed it in a style
    that is so lost in the cookie cutter crap that is so prevalent in today's
    wedding photography. The warmth and glow emanating from that image will
    bring such joy to the bride and groom's families for generations to come.
    I'm sure the lucky couple was very pleased with it?

    Dude! I thought I was the only one who immediately thought of D-Mac
    when I heard about that creep. Amazing how two people on different
    sides of the Earth can have the exact same thoughts about the exact
    same person. Yes, D-Mac, you're world-famous alright.
