Has anyone noticed how much the site has slowed suddenly - might it be suffering from a loss of heart(s)? Smile

Quote:The issue in my opinion is the effect of "isolating" any picture with an EC.

For instance, why does one excellent picture of a Puffin get an EC and not another - it's simply because one hits the spot with Pete and another doesn't.



Barrie this happens in magazines, which as I've said many times is what I want the EC selection to represent. The difference here is all the other photos are also seen and it's up to the viewer to decide whether as a viewer they want to view my personal selection or view the many other great images that, on a magazine, would be in a reject pile and never see the light of day, no matter how good.

So, just to clarify, ECs aren't going anywhere.

Oh no he hasn't....he's gone for a chocolate hob nob and to check my batteries are charging for tomorrows wedding!

Pete was Editior of Photo Technique if my memory serves me correctly before becoming Editor here of course which is what Keith was alluding to I believe

Off for a quick Hob Nob dunk! (it's quite legal)

Long day.....but yes.
I'm just fed up of the will of the minority being used to influence the enjoyment of the majority.

There I go again.

Maybe its because I'm a lowly amateur but I'm fully in favour of the EC section, sometimes I agree sometimes I dont but thats about choice.

At last, a question I can answer...

...Pete Bargh was the editor of "Digital Photo FX" which later became "Digital Photo".

But you knew that already!
