A sort of Close but no Cigar Award?


Like it. I would short-list so many and then award none. Wink

It would make so much more sense for those wanting to improve or gauge how well they are doing.

That`s a good thing, just limit the award to one a day by leaving it as it stands, and short-list as many as you like Smile

I am still fairly new to EPZ. I like it because it can be all things to all people. It saddens me when some get upset over what others are doing, live and let live.

Actually, I've decided to disagree with myself. Bring this in and get rid of the 'like' button which for some misguided numptys has become a virtual turn the other cheek. I'd much prefer it if people said " Do you know what, I disagree with your somewhat negative appraisal of my underexposed mud-filtered artwork and here are my reasons"

Not going to happen though.

The guy is still here!


Quote:No vested interests in this then ??? The guy runs a business selling courses on photography ( see his "About me" ! ). Presumably these negative votes would identify his market for him. Every single thing I have heard from him is negative and destructive. leave him to rent out his house in Tenerife and let the rest of us get on with helping each other improve....


Excuse me, but where do you come up with negative and destructive from? Also, I do not have a house to rent out in Tenerife, something else you have got wrong! You are obviously retired and nothing better to do, but run someone down. Is there something wrong in wanting to improve peoples photographic skills and take them to beautiful locations?
I asked a simple question, would it be beneficial to give a negative vote, rather than a positive one. I was asking the people on the EPZ site what there thoughts were, not what I wanted. Maybe it would be more beneficial if voting was banned? As others have pointed out over a period of time, there's cliques in EPZ, who seem to vote for each other.

Maybe a more constructive way would to have a standard question and answer tick table. Tick each box on the images merits and a section at the bottom for your reasons.

I do not just take paying clients, but recently spent a day with the local breast cancer charity taking images for them. There were over 240 images I took of the days events, from various entertainers on stage, a walk for life and further entertainment down by the beach in Los Cristianos. There were over 2,000 people who took part. Also my wife died of breast cancer, back in January 2011, leaving our 11 year old son without his mother, who was 46 when she passed away.

Yes Peter, I do have a business and a 13 year old son to look after, so unlike you, I do not have all day to sit in front of my computer trying to run people down.

Probably a good enough reason NOT to have a negative voting system then!Tongue

" I do not have all day to sit in front of my computer trying to run people down."

Which is exactly the reason for not having a quick method of running someone's photography down. The same gos for the other suggestion, it just alienates some members of this community.

It's not broken so let it be.
