    Discovered someone having a go about my photos from a recent engagement party that I was at (just a friends, did the photo's for free). The rant came from a girl who wasn't even there. I know the couple and most other's who attended really liked the photo's and many have made them their profile pictures on facebook. But the comment has still got under my skin a little bit. I know 'you can't please everyone' but still...

    Anyway, I thought I'd ask if you could tell me what you're opinions were. I was just going round trying to capture the fun that was going on.

    If you're interested, her comment was:
    "Dont fink the photographer wos up to much... hope he didnt cost too much cos ad b ragin..."

    The link is no functioning at the minute Chris...Sad

    That aside I would not be to worried by the comments of a " No Nuffink " bimbo, Who was probably ticked off because she was not on the guest list, Hence she had to make a point about " Sumfink " ....Grin

    As the photographs where there to remind her of the great time she missed, They where the obvious target, Then to twist the knife a little making reference to the cost of the photographer, ie: having a stab at the party hosts for being muppets and getting ripped off, In her overblown opinion.....!!!!

    So there ya go, Thats my take on the situation, She sounds like of of those misfits who enjoy playing stupid mind games with friends, It also explains why she was not invited....Wink

    To top it all, Her command of the English language is just another indication of the IQ.....Smile

    Looking at your PF, I'd say you have nothing to worry about mate....Grin

    I wouldn't say they were of a professional standard, they look like friends' party pics, and if that's what they are then no problem. Even though they could all be improved in composition, focus and flash control, I can see why the people in the photos would like them as a record of a good night.

    Your photos are better than your critic's English...

    a reasonable set of images recording a party good range of people and there activities during the evening
    may have been a bit more selective and not show all of the images

    To be honest I've seen pros photos of a lower standard, the only criticism is there's a slight yellowish tinge with mix of flash and fluroescent light (easily fixed with a gel filter on the flash.)

    I'd agree with that one, some of them could be improved with a bit of colour correction. There are a few in there that are out of focus, and as a general rule, I wouldn't have posted them in a set. But as a record of a friends engagement they are fine.

    The ones that looked noticeably yellow were those of the cake cutting.
    I've uploaded a mod where I've used a selective colour adjustment to neutralise the flourescent yellow.
    Settings used were in Yellows: Cyan +30, Magenta -17, Yellow -100, Black -10. Start here and tweak.
    I also added a touch of HP sharpening.

    Thanks for all the comments, especially the constructive criticism. All valid points that I'll take note for the future.

    I'd be quite pleased with that set of photos.

    What concerns me is that some people can't spell these days, scary!

    yeah - the mental picture those comments create are of some scum bag from Shameless, or maybe Viccy Pollard from Little Britain.

    It's probably worth screening what you upload on facebook - don't upload anything with obvious flaws such as incorrect focus, and often "less is more" - don't feel obliged to upload every shot from an event, cherry pick the better ones, don't upload 10 versions of the same scene, people just get bored looking and drift off.

    I think for free, they've got a great set of shots there.
