Quote: People used to leave meaningless comments to "register" their vote

however, now E2 members can see who's voted on each shot, so there's no need to leave a meaningless comment - you can just vote and know that the recipient knows you voted.

Yes but it doesn't register on your gallery when a vote was added. So you invariably lose track of how many votes you have. If you comment, it tells the receiver not only that they have received a vote but the date that the comment was made, so it stands out, particularly if the shot is quite old.

Since when did honesty creep into comments.
No let's not go there!

Yes, well. I'm always honest in my commenting. If I hate it, I say nothing. If I can see how it might be improved I do a critique and if I like it then I give due praise.

And if it's another picture of Southwold-bl**dy-Pier or Rannoch-s*dding-Moor, I usually end up having to be coaxed out from under the table by a nice man with a hypodermic and a strait-jacket under his arm..... Grin

'Aunt Mabel' is a human being with feelings, hopes and aspirations like are the rest of us. They maybe different aspirations to arty photographers and probably centre on her family.

A rock is just a bit of rock, no matter how aesthetically photographed, when all is said and done.

And will still be there when 'Aunt Mabel' has passed on.

On balance I prefer the picture of 'Aunt Mabel'.

Remembered fondly, slightly out of focus.

well that is all true if you know Aunt Mabel but if you don't . . . . .

The rock on the other hand can compliment a kitchen with granite finish, provide a stark architectural punctuation in a minimalist design, be a counterfoil to a flower, provide a natural element in an otherwise modernist design . . . .

It's about mood for me, and whether it moves me at all. A rock or a tree doesn't, by and large. A picture of Auntie Mabel usually does, by and large.

Mind you, there are similarities between a rock / tree and Auntie Mabel if they're simply record shots with no thought for lighting, composition or interpretation, and also if they're shots that show careful thought, sensitive interpretation and detail. But I have to say the photographer of the rock or the tree has to work harder to engage me otherwise it's simply a rock. Or a tree. Because otherwise, for me, it's a "so what" picture.
