I really don't care. If you post photos (particularly ones as bad as this) you should accept criticism.
I didn't just say "It's rubbish", which, let's face it, is what most people are thinking.

Quote:When critiquing photos

Be polite and respectful in your comments. Insulting comments will be deleted.
Remember: you are trying to help and encourage your fellow EPZ members.
Avoid misunderstanding: nuances of speech and facial expressions cannot come over in writing.
Study the image and form an opinion of what does or does not appeal to you, both technically and aesthetically.
Identify technical qualities that appeal or do not appeal: focus, camera shake, lighting, exposure, colour, contrast, composition, depth of field, background, choice of lens, artefacts, noise etc.
Do the same with the aesthetic qualities: describe any emotional response you get from the pic: Visually satisfying (or static or just inept)? Is the eye led in or around the pic? is there a discernable subject? Good balance between subject and background? Any parts of the subject lost unintentionally? Could crop be better? If theres a horizon is it level?
Begin your comments with what you like about the photo. Then go on to what you think needs improvement offering suggestions as to how the photo can be improved.
Do not argue the validity of another members comments or get into a debate on the critique.
There is nothing wrong with saying Nice pic but say why you think it is nice be specific on the technical and aesthetic qualities which appeal.
Do not use the copy & paste technique to flood the gallery with meaningless comments.

Maybe a few people need to consider why they are members as these are the guidlines we all agreed to when become a member

ok...I get the whole joke thing ( I think)but whats the point? what was the picture in aid of? Are you saying that because you have fiddled with it in photoshop it is no longer a real photo? Some people may not know how to get an image like this, what is wrong with it?

Meg - it was part of a running joke about moon shots .. and the following comments, made by a bunch of people who are all friends including the photographer, were part of it, that's all. High spirits on a Saturday night Smile And there's nothing wrong with the shot - it's just banter. Unfortunately some have taken offence and some have thought we were being seriously rude .. and now some rude comments made by others have been removed so hopefully things will cool down.
