DM? Deutschmark?


Designated Marksman. military marksman role in a U.S. infantry squad. The DM's role is to supply rapid accurate fire on enemy targets at ranges up to 870 yds with a highly-accurate semi-automatic rifle equipped with a telescopic sight.

There've been a few pics on here I'd like to have done that to. Wink

At least that chip on the shoulder is consistent.

(click on topics created link) although looking at the OPs PF I would suspect a frustration in not been able to create some of the great DMs we see on here.

If you think DM's a "problem" on here, check out 500px or pixoto.... you'll not see a natural eye in any of the awards areas

Not quite the same is it Ade.

A good 90% of awarded images will have some form of manipulation, without it landscapes and the like will not get a look in.

The award gallery would contain nothing but birds on sticks Smile

Don`t get me wrong, manipulation is good in my book.

Has anyone at ephotozine thought about having an award section just for photographs. I mean for people who just point their camera and click the shutter. I know this sounds old fashioned, but with the upsurge in popularity in vinyl records, and people looking to get back into the dark art of darkroom processing maybe this might not be as stupid as it sounds. The internet is now overloaded with images that have been manipulated, some look amazing, but most, including the ones seen on here have all been done before (although they still get awards). If Alexander Rodchenko had uploaded his photographs on ephotozine he would have been lucky if he got a vote, let alone an award, so I really think that the people given the task of awarding "Photographs" should have some idea of what a photograph looks like.

How would you know if something had been manipulated? Sometimes work is so subtle and clever that it looks real.

I'm old, but I still have a brain Slowsong, so thankfully I can still tell the difference between photography and bullshit (digital art).

Having been involved in photography for over 30 years and in that time judging print competitions of the old darkroom world, been involved in the competition element of the leading traditional photography magazines and having used every film format from 110 to 10x8 I think I have some idea of what a photograph looks like.

Pete I really don't think you have a clue what real photography looks like. There are photographs posted on here that are frankly incredible (not mine) and they are completley ignored in favour of some image that has been engineered to look good by the use of some fancy software. Employ a proper photographer to look through the images and they might spot class. On a personal note I'm starting to take photographs using glass plates, with a 10 second exposure it's bloody tricky. But one decent shot makes it all worthwhile.
