Haha, Jeb that was almost like shaking my hand with one hand and punching me in the gut with the other, but you're right.

I thought this thread had died...? But now that it's resurrected, I must say you are quite correct: we are here to learn, 'negative' comments are really the most helpful and by 'putting them out there' we should be prepared for almost anything. And by the way, the original author of this thread, I think, has some truly helpful comments. It's not just 'Oh, wow, stunning. I really like your photo' but actual helpful comments about camera settings, lighting and positioning of objects and so forth. Not all the time but mostly! Welcome to DPC and good luck!

I'm kinda new around here. I thought the whole point of this site was to put your work out there and see what happens good or bad. I know my stuff isn't super high level stuff, that's why I'm here. I Want to learn. I know full well that whenever I get my self in gear and finally enter a challenge, I will most likely get "negative" comments. They may even make me mad or cry. The photos I take are personal to me and by putting them out there for others to see and comment, I am poutting myself out there. But if I can't handle that, then what's the point of doing any of it at all? If everyone loved everything I did, then I could probably say I have learned enough and move on.

You're abusive and abrasive, but you're also insightful and intelligent and therefore often have a realistic perspetive that may appear harsh, though not necessarily without thought provoking merit.

Sorry I normally don´t do this (pm people in the middle of voting) but you seriously knocked two points off because I didn´t clone out flies from a witch picture?

But you bumped him back up to 9 after the PM? Perhaps I should start pm-ing more people during voting.

Hell, I would just be happy if people started clicking the "helpful" box! LOL

I am not guilty of this so I suppose complaining about it is a right... right?? :)

To the OP, I think if everyone realized that when a comment is left, it is not a direct attack on them, they would be less likely to PM about comments that point out flaws, etc... sometimes artists are sensitive :)

I find it rather ironic that the same person who started this thread also sent me a complaint after I left a comment on his image during a challenge just over a month ago. Even more ironic is how that same individual stated he hasn't sent a reply to a comment in a long time. I guess in DPC time, a long time ago means a month.

Some people may not like the comments I leave and I encourage them to PM me. I posted a while back asking if my voting was wrong because of the number of PM's I received, but I never complain about the PM's. I encourage them.

I think it is a true shame that people complain about the same action they are guilty of themselves....

Thanx for letting me know, I did mark the comment as helpful, I just love DPC some times :)

Ok - scanned the thread - but need clarification - am I burning the villages of those who PM'd Larus, or am I burning Larus' village, or both. I'm in a hurry, so if I don't hear back, I'll just dowse my torch and go back to work.


Burn Iceland, give the rest of us a chance.

Been there, done that. Didn't seem to help.

Art, Art. If an Icelander is present at the burning, it stops being a "disaster", and becomes a "photo op"...

Some of my comments have brought others to tears but my motto is as long as I don't make baby Jesus cry I'm ok. Good thing nobody is registered as such.

Hi Mr Art,
God bless your village burning business. We are happy with your interest, and would furnish you with the village details soonest. However our printer and fax machine died and we have to rent another to prepare the details. Would appreciate you to pay us a small amount upfront. Please pay using Western Union to xxx-xxxxx. Thank you.

You know, Larus, I admire your work and rarely disagree with the substance of any of your comments I happen to read, but THIS statement strikes me as more than a little self-centered.


Well duh, of course it´s self-centered but why should I change what I do simply because other people don´t like it? I like me fine the way I am and I am not going to change simply because a person who I have never and probably will never meet in my life asks me to. I think the only people who have the right to do so are those in my immediate family.

Think the best way to keep everyone happy is to do what I for me to stop commenting altogether, then I don´t have to worry about having to sugar coat anything and people will stop being offended, so problem solved! :)

This the last I will have to say about the subject but if anyone feels the need to keep on discussing this, feel free.


Bold added is mine to show exactly what I am referring to.

You don't have to change a thing. Of course, the fair thing would be not to bring it up in a public forum where people might suggest you need to, either. eh?

FWIW, I've been here 5 years. I've made in excess of 6000 comments. Yea, some of them were "sweet," but I've given my opinion on many many of those pictures, and some of those opinions weren't really flattering. I have received maybe one "rebuttal." Is it because I'm on SC? I don't think so -- a lot, if not most, of my comments were made before I was ever selected as SC. I would echo what someone else said, if a lot of people are complaining, and you don't like it, you could be the one to change.

And back to that argument, NO, you don't HAVE to, but you don't have to start forum threads about how much it bothers you either. You give your opinions on the pictures. Fine. Now, people are giving you theirs (opinions) here. Turnabout is fair play.

Lori, I wouldn't worry about it. Like posthumous, I have also received a negative PM from Larus after I commented on one of his photos. Yet he doesn't want anyone to PM him about his comments? Double standard there!
