Is it usual for a a contributor to create an image on photoshop, post it asking for feedback and then complain when not many people give feedback and those that did didn't notice the trick?

Could someone enlighten me please...................

Is anyone else put off by this behaviour?

a guy put an image of three little owls of which, he reports, two were 'digital siblings', in the wanting serious wildlife feedback group. What is the point of that?

It wasnt in the the digital category so it was a bit misleading.

I see your feedback was quite analytical and well put so I can see how you would have been annoyed. Its not a bad manip though. Not perfect but not bad. He does come across quite arrrogant though. Paul

i think the notion of 'a bit misleading' is very generous of you.............

Thanks Paul for the compliment about my feed back. I guess i am annoyed, not only because i put the effort in, but also because i thought someone genuinely wanted to learn.....looking at the guys portfolio he 'teaches' wildlife photography, just leaves me wondering what the game is other than to put those of us that didn't notice the trick in our silly little photography place................

one reason why i have so far avoided photography clubs is because of this behaviour....................

sublime arrogance is not a good way to encourage beginners to get involved.

Knowing the guy & u obviously don't u shouldn't comment on arrogance & superiority & neither should Paul! I've only been here about a month & I've learnt a lot but a few minority ruin for those who generally are beginners with the comments u made! That's the sort of behaviour that puts me off! Lighten up!

Without a link to the shot or the issue in question, isn't this all a bit pointless?

You can't expect those of us who don't know what you're talking about to be able to form any kind of worthwhile opinion.

This image perhaps...

OK.
It's not a bad job of manipulation but I think that, not knowing it was manufactured, I would have questioned the chances of finding that scenario in real life and wondered about its authenticity.
The individual shots are OK without being outstanding as is the finished product, which might go some way to explaining why it hasn't garnered as many votes as he thinks it should.
People have looked and just don't particularly like it.
If he thinks that that, or any other shots he's taken are being undervalued by the voters (of which I'm not one, I never vote on any images), perhaps he should put them up in the critique gallery and get some proper feedback.
As for his being arrogant; well, perhaps he comes over that way a bit but I've seen worse on here.

No body ever questions the real scenario of photographing Kites at feeding stations Smile

Does it matter
