    | 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

    Oh, they are pleased Rita. And thank you for your comment.

    Ignoring the trolls... It would seem an equal divide between those who
    like it and those who don't. I rate that as a very successful piece.

    My style is such that many of the young brides I show these pieces to,
    have never heard of "Gone with the wind" or Clark Gable. Half like them,
    half don't.

    Just like half want vintage cars and half want the latest model for
    their wedding. Developing a unique style goes a long way towards
    cementing the foundations of a sound Photographic business.

    What was that saying about pleasing the people? You can't all the people
    all the time or some such phrase!

    He's been in my plonk file since the day he got released and tried his
    filthy attitude. That prick has more aliases than are on the list your
    other mate Charles Stevens or is it Mark Thomas? or ...attributed
    (mostly wrongly) to me.

    I don't think I've come across so many idiots in my life as I've
    discovered on Usenet. Shut 'em out and all the posts from normal people
    suddenly take relevance again. People like you makes so much noise, you
    almost drown out posts from normal people interested in photography and
    discussing it.

    You ought to try some human behavior counseling. I don't think so but
    there is at least one person you regularly attack who maintains there is
    still hope for you. I often wonder if you ever had any social skills to
    begin with... I doubt it, knowing your disgusting obsession with
    pornography.

    Well, the image tells the story right enough, but the technique worries
    me somewhat. The girl's bust is totally blown out(no pun intended), as
    well as too much OOF for my taste, as is the man's collar, and there's a
    patch of 255^3 on his cheek.

    If this is not due to Photoshop, then the much-vaunted D300 is no better
    than a Canon for dynamic range; in fact a 40D could pee on it from a
    great height.

    You are the biggest liar on the internet. You always reply to me.

    That prick has more aliases than are on the list your

    Don;t stress Doggy, no one will ever match your aliases, you will always
    have the usenet wide record for most names used in a 12 month period.

    Actually, how do you know all my aliases if you have had me killfiled
    since my release (don't know where the **** I was licked up to be
    released, maybe he thinks I'm a budgie.

    ANOTHER LIE EXPOSED.

    Wasn't that long ago you were saying I had a lot to offer this group.

    You're the one whose photo is circulating the facebook funwall printing
    pictures of naked men

    No offense, but I'd still like to know why he's smelling her left eye. That
    doesn't seem very romantic to me.

    In your dreams Colin, in your dreams. It was a D3, not a D300 and there
    is not a Canon camera made that can come near it for this type of work.
    10 years ago I would have used my Rz Mamiya and soft focus lens. Today I
    do it with $160 worth of plugin.

    The filter responsible makes a lot of my "high key" or "Feminine" art
    pieces. I guess it's not easy being green and sitting in the middle of
    football field on Saturday... Open your mind and let your eyes do the
    exploring. You've been using critical focus and density assessment for
    far too long.

    I would have thought a bloke like you would by now be exploring the art
    of the occupation you were forced to ignore it in. Maybe I was wrong.
    Maybe you never had any art in your heart in the first place.

    What a person sees in a picture is a widely variable factor.

    I see a scene from a 1930's vintage movie when I look at it. Corny,
    staged romance just like Clark Gable would have done. Perfect for the
    theme intended.

    "Frankly I don't give a damn, my dear"...
    Portrayed by two fans of the era.

    You see a bloke sniffing his lady's eye.

    Someone else sees blown whites on a collar.

    Someone else again see insincerity in the woman's face.

    Rich sees a hair style he hasn't seen for a while.

    My accountant see it making money.

    The trolls see it as another chance to do some head kicking.

    It's a perfect image to set as a talking point.

    I'm not sure if you've noticed Neil, but my purpose in posting it has
    been served well...

    To get people talking about photography and (hopefully) explore their
    own creativity in the process. You should try it sometime or is the
    likely hood one of the trolls might do a number on you too daunting?

    That's it, Douggie. Attack Colin .... and me ... and AC .... and
    Helen .... and everyone else who sees your pics for what they
    are ...... CRAP.
    You are obviously the only true artist in the world. Who else could
    capture the subtle masculinity of Bridezilla, or intertwine a couple
    of newlyweds with a kite surfer in a blown out (oops, I meant "high
    key") sky? Who else can pose his subjects so masterfully, whether
    trying to represent a groom with one leg or some guy poking out a
    Russian girl's eye with his nose?
    We bow before you, Master!

    Oh well, you still have Rita.

    I kinda doubt that pic will sell too many copies.
    I'll give you credit for posting the pic at least and generating
    discussion.
    Hopefully, maybe you or someone else can benefit from the comments.

    And as much as you like ragging on my ass, you will at least have to
    admit that I post my pics under my real name ... and I leave them up
    and don't yank them down whenever someone cirtiques them. And I don't
    hide behind 100 aliases .... just this one.

    I've never heard of the distinction, although I'll admit your famous

    Yes, you led into it with a long winded introduction and then let everyone
    down by posting a crappy photo.

    And by posting that awful photo as an example of your abilities shows you
    now even less.


    You should try to take become a good photographer first and if you ever
    master that then you can work on creativity.

    Yes, that's it, the digital camera made you take a shitty photo!


    Why not take a real photograph and let it tell the story ?


    It could, if the photograph wasn't of such poor quality.


    And the pictures you painted would be just as bad !

    Couldn't find anyone dumb enough to apply ?


    Unfortunately you failed

    The second qualification is that you must be legally blind !


    By the rabidness of your replies I"ll bet your "no effect" calim is
    bullshit !


    Then why do you post back so many times stating that the comments don't
    bother you ? If you really felt that way you wouldn't constantly bring up the
    issue !

    Isn't this where you are suppose to state that your "legal team" is going to
    take action ????


    Only take the legally blind as clients as they are happy no matter how poor
    the photogrphy ?



    Don't be jealous just because he takes better photos than you.




    Your pathetic and

    That website is like you Douglas, full of hot air !

    Your math skills are equal to your photography skills. Rita ( that's 1)
    liked your photo, everyone else ( that's 25 or more) didn't like it. That's
    hardly 50/50.



    And your style would go a long ways putting a photogr[hy business out of
    business !

    I'm Sorry XxYyZz, Did I miss something here?

    Have you got a portfolio on-line we can judge the quality of your work
    from? Or... Are you just acting as a sock puppet for another well known
    troll?
