EPZ misconceptions

I find it best just to take pictures of fast moving objects at the time that they're moving. 6 in the morning or 7 at night they're usually stationary - although in June I'll be struggling to take shots of them all through the day/night/following day Grin

Hmm ... call me cynical but this seems to have degenerated into click fishing Wink

Cynical, Chris, cynical!

Here are people trying to prove your point, and you turn around and accuse them of something like that. Shame on you. Repent ye!

You certainly didn't have any problems with harsh light and shadows in that image, did you? Wink

Just the harsh crits and shadowy figures on EPZ that saw the project pulled, Conrad! Smile

I think that Conrad and a majority of others have the right idea. You take a photograph because you like what you see At That Time. If you see a view that you think would look better in a different light, such as under a setting sun, and you have the time to spare, you wait till you think the time is right. If you dont have the time you can take it but not post it, as it is not realy what YOU want. Too many people seem to be taking shots in an effort to please others. Some go as far as to improve, or at least change, a photograph in an attempt to get clicks. I will click a natural good view before I click a piece of PS art.

Try taling a photo in Cape Town or for that matter anywhere where it can reach an average of 34 degrees with no ,oisture in the air! Almost impossible. I often look at B&W then and you will note I don't have many. The sun is so harsh that I almost give up photography then. Just too bright. It is true of the style, if I wanted to I could... I have photos that friends like very much I don't and won't upload... Because I am not comfortable with it. I do think tht EPZ has to an extent controlled what I shot and the style for that matter.

Interesting. I can see how EPZ could influence what you upload or don't upload, but this is going a bit far. You can still shoot what you want, even if there isn't much of an audience for it here, can't you?

I'm far more critical than I've ever been, partly down to epz but mostly to myself I think. Whereas I used to upload every day now I struggle to upload once a fortnight with anything I'm really happy with - I'm always picking fault in anything I do and I really dont know if this is a good thing or whether nit picking is useful or not - nothing is ever 100% is it?
