    Hello:

    Before the end of the week I wanted to take this opportunity to say goodbye
    to all members of the newsgroup.

    Later than the end of the month, I'll be buying a professional camera to
    take mainly related photos about my profession and at family gatherings, and
    consequently, now my gallery will be private.

    I would like to thank everyone for all the good advice, have been really
    uplifting, and I hope you have noticed some improvements.

    And if there is something specific that I failed to improve, it would be
    interesting to know in this newsgroup.

    Some are not believers, but I would end with a Bible verse that I find
    interesting:

    "Finally, brothers, let your minds be filled with everything that is true,
    everything that is honourable, everything that is upright and pure,
    everything that we love and admire -- with whatever is good and
    praiseworthy."
    (Philippians 4:8, New Jerusalem Bible)

    It disappoints me that you never really submitted any photographs of
    the people of Lima except as part of a crowd. You had the opportunity
    to share a slice of your culture.

    You have improved and I congratulate you on that. I hope you continue to improve and that photography continues to be something you enjoy and a way of sharing.

    Like Tony, I would have liked to see more intimate pictures of the people of Lima and their daily lives.

    Best wishes to you.

    Many thanks for all the pictures you have shared with us. They have
    encouraged me to get out of my house and take pictures of my local town
    and surrounding area.

    I have noticed improvements in your photography during the last two
    years. In my opinion, your choices of colour balance, exposure, and
    saturation are very good. Many of your recent pictures give me the
    sense of being involved with the scene - as if I was standing exactly
    where your camera was positioned. This is something I need to learn: I
    usually stand too far away and zoom-in instead moving closer and
    zooming-out.

    Although not a "believer" myself, the verse you quoted is very
    interesting. Philosophically, it makes good sense and it seems very
    simple to follow, but it is one of the most difficult things to do. The
    stresses of everyday modern life feed our minds with large amounts of
    negativity.

    Best wishes to you for your future. If you have any questions about
    your new camera, this newsgroup is a very good place to ask for help.

    I normally just skip his posts, though sometimes I do peek at his images
    to see if there is any improvement. Sadly, I noticed none. If he enjoys
    shooting what he does, then that's OK. But, when I saw comments being
    ignored, why bother. He is not my child. I noticed that he is still
    shooting parrots in cages, with the bars showing. I guess that his
    leaving when he gets a "professional camera," coupled with his failure
    to heed advice, speaks volumes about what he really thinks.
    However, I wish him well.

  7. Curious use of words "him", "his" and "he" considering the original post was
    addressed to "us" !
    For what is worth, I've enjoyed YOUR photographs and your courage in posting
    them in the face of some rather childish, posturing, arrogant and cowardly
    (and some constructive), criticism.
    All the best to you pal,
    Mike

    Forgive me for stating the obvious, but neither improving as a photographer
    nor acceding to well-intentioned advice is a prerequisite to remaining active
    in this newsgroup.

    Thanks for your comment, it happens that with a professional camera, in
    historical events is not so easy to take pictures, but yesterday I asked
    about the camera I wanted, and in the stores say that until year end will
    not come to Lima the model I saw in on TV at CES 2012

    My gallery will be public again, and I will continue trying to participate
    in the newsgroup

    Pete thanks, it's really refreshing weekend go out and do something fun and
    uplifting at the same time


    Yes, those specs are very interesting, and the current camera is very good
    to those practices


    I understand, now no longer know who to trust, but I will say that when
    activities are done transparently, and conscience is at peace with God,
    everyday work is like starting a new adventure.


    The new camera does not reach Lima until year end, my gallery will be public
    again, and I will continue trying to participate in the newsgroup, improving
    everything possible in the photos I typically perform.

    Thanks also for your comment, my gallery will be public again, and I will
    try at any time to improve that you mention,

    There is still much to practice in Lima, and in any case, I will try to
    improve completely even with any camera.

    Thanks for your response, usually I'm working all day and only at night or
    when I finish early, I can see these other interesting topics on the
    Internet or recordings of TV programs that sometimes I recorded during the
    day.

    But sometimes some good advice I miss and inadvertently not included in my
    analysis, I will be trying to be more careful about it.

    Hello Bob, just all this new matter shows me that it is not necessary to
    show a picture to talk about photography.

    I will try to continue participating in the newsgroup, Photography in all
    its aspects is very interesting.

    Of course not. But, I may set any criteria no matter how arbitrary, for
    my giving constructive criticism. It seems to me that when well
    intentioned advice is continually ignored non response is not arbitrary.

    You are absolutely right...The big problem with Miguel was that he kept
    posting rather mundane photos then *totally* ignored all advice.
    I eventually just ignored him but much to my surprise he actually did
    post a few really nice shots more recently.

    So all in all, maybe he did learn something after all.
    I think the main reason he was so hated around here was simply because
    most folks must have wondered why he kept asking for advice if he never
    took it.

    So looking back and seeing that he eventually took a few decent shots...
    maybe in the future I'll be a bit less hasty in judging others.

    It irritated me that he never learned to cross-post and insisted on
    multiple newsgroup postings. He should either single-post to one
    group or cross-post if he wanted input from readers of both groups.

    I don't recall that he *ever* asked for advice. He asked for
    comments, but not for advice.

    If I post a link to an image and say "C&C appreciated", that doesn't
    mean that I am soliciting advice or that I will follow any advice
    offered. It just means that I would like your opinion of what I have
    submitted.

    "What do you think of this?" is a different question from "How can I
    do this better next time?".

    In my opinion, what has been demonstrated by some frequent givers of
    advice is that their advice is _not_ given freely. If there is a cost
    attached to the advice then sodding well charge for it instead of
    pretending to give it freely on Usenet then criticizing those who
    appear, initially, not to be taking it on board.

    Giving advice is dictatorial; offering help is kindness - the two
    concepts are worlds apart.

    Lots of things irritate you, move on.

    Your subtlety of precise definition is not only pathetic, it is
    insulting to a multi-cultural environment such as Usenet.

    Not sure I agree. Asking for a critique is asking for advice on how to

    As for following advice, I simply ask that my advice e considered, not
    necessarily followed.
