    Yeah man because someone's desire to attain credit for their photos completely discredits any artistic merit.

    In that image, it's very distracting and easily removable.

    If he wanted to remain credited, he may as well have used a pixel font in the lower right or left.

    Just look at the watermark on the photo I just posted, for example.

    no i know him in real life you asshole, and we're friends. And thats what friends do, they have each others back.

    Now take your so called photography and terrible attitude and get the fuck out this subforum. Trust me it will be better without you.

    You shouldn't get defensive every time someone gives any criticism to your friend.
    And I like this subforum, you get out.

    i wasn't getting defensive for no reason, if you were offering valid criticism then i'd have no problem with that. But you're just being a dick, and its completely out of the blue as well.

    If you said what you said to some other members of the forum i would have said exactly the same thing.

    Wait, actually, he doesn't have anything worth criticizing. Saying anything for one picture covers all of them.

    Plus, no other member of this forum is that arrogant and posts the same thing over and over again and keeps getting blank complements from his friend. If it was someone else in the forum, you wouldn't have done anything.

    I just love the expression of sheer joy on an extremely rainy day.

    It's also quite interesting how it's a mainly grey and rainy picture, but it's also so very happy and uplifting.

    When I first looked at it, all the droplets of rain hitting the water made me think she was swimming in a sea of glass... Or diamonds or something.

    That would probably mean a more reddish colour in the centre of the shot. And her expression would be different. :P

    Isn't artistic criticism mostly opinion based, therefore there is no questioning its validity?

    artistic critique isn't only opinion based, there's lots of technical aspects you can look at, regardless of what it is you're critiquing.

    if it was only opinion based, you could say any shit photo is, in theory, the most amazing shot in the world simply because the photographer that took it said "this is how I wanted it to be, therefor it's good"

    ...sorry if i've somehow missed your point here

    Inzalous, firstly I said mostly opinion based, as in yes there is a technical aspect to it, but it also comes paired with how the viewer believes these technical aspects have been pulled off to the viewer's taste. Criticism is not the law, it's an opinion of what could have been done better in a photograph to someone's own liking - this can be taken or ignored by the photographer, depending on whether their opinions agree, or in some cases, how much the photographer wishes their opinions to agree with their critic's opinions. I don't know I think I'm meditating this too much, I should probably stop before we start discussion photographic existentialism and the qualities of the medium. Dai, I think we are now breaching on viewing this subforum from Killuah's point of view.

    to be honest you're right, i'm not gonna turn this into a massive argument just want to add, while it does in the end come down to opinion, my opinion is that good criticism is that which tackles the technical, not just saying "oh I don't like this because it's boring", specifically pointing out what you like and what you don't like is what people should do. Gives the artist a better understanding of their own work, from other points of view

    Edited:

    the first, second and third one are great imo, they've got the toning and visual aesthetic that i'm trying to achieve myself, not quite there yet, but then I also don't really have new photos to try to achieve that with as of yet
