Look peeps, obviously i didnt know what the heck this place was. nor what the heck a halo was. ive told you guys im no where near being a professional photographer so I haven't stumbled upon this site before all this. For the record. I did enjoy the critique (some of them) and I didnt accuse anyone of stealing my picture. I simply asked why my picture was in a portfolio. You have to excuse me senorkasper, where I come from a "portfolio" is one's own work and at a glance I just saw my picture there not knowing it was your way of trying to show me tips. I do apologize. No hard feelings. I just enjoy photography as a hobby and am interested in what everyone has to say but find some of these comments completely ridiculous (u know who u are) and others extremely helpful. Not trying to have a forum post battle over all this. I appreciate all the kind words and "pm" everybody sent, thank you. Now that I know there is no excuse for having a picture 3/4 of a degree off level, and halos are bad, I'm out working hard to get it right. I'm glad you guys haven't thrown my other pics in here cause I'm sure you would have a field day with all them.
Now that i know what this site is about I'll stick around but sorry for my ignorance of not knowing what goes on here. Thanks for queuing me in, thanks for the advice, and thanks for the flickr views... Happy shooting.
Apologies accepted. Feel free to PM if you need any advice.
