In my opinion, this site has lost the original direction. Images were great when I joined the blog and I concur with John about a lot of good photographers have left the site and others just don't post very often. I also agree with him and others regarding the fun pics, even when I think fun images can be very creative too and are great to see. But lately I just see low quality images, full of noise and sharpless; and quite a lot 'frankenstains'. It's great to learn a new technique like HDR, but after a while, either you improve them take our suggestions or stop posting them because there is a problem about it: like it happens with bad smells and our noses, eyes got used to bad quality images and we think 'our kids' (our creations) are always good. This is collective place, we should think only about ourselves, but about others too. Lately I have seen so many 'superbs' in such bad images, and sorry for this but it's my opinion, that I can understand people have left and others are thinking about leaving. ; I don't know why some people are on the defensive all the time for simple things;and I don't know what laws has to do when a member just give his opinion. Also, there is nothing wrong about auto settings because you can take bad images with them too. Composition, angle, subject,lighting, etc... can't be automatic things and that makes the differece between bad images and art.
I really appreciate most of the people on this blog, and some of them are really good friends. I stopped posting lately and I won't do it for a while; I know I'm not the only one who thinks this.
