 I know that's what you said. :P I also knew it myself :D I'd agree that seems to be the basic scoring criteria, looking at some of the handful of "fails" makes me wonder why people bothered though!

 

The point I was making was that I would have expected a little more than that, especially as that was word for word the same on every one of the 6 or 7 other silver and bronze rated shots I looked at.

I have seen other comments such as:

 

Image isn't sharp enough
 
Image is underexposed
 
Horizon is very wonky!

1.  Ah but when does post production editing become digital art, when has the photograph(s) been edited so much it can no longer be considered a photograph but becomes a creation of the mind and not of the camera.

 

2. So come on then what did you get?

 An  EOS 650D. I previously had a canon so the lens I have will be able to be used with the new camera. Just need to improve my photos

I took my camera for a walk for the first time in a dog's age.  Here are a couple from the stroll:

bit of shake on those, I don't just mean the figures in motion, shame. Sharper backgrounds would have made um crackers.

I did think that would be a response. Personally, I'm easy with a bit of shake especially when with (for e.g.) the 'on the corner' shot it's a way of getting across just how frantic everyone seemed to be. Possibly it works less well for the Oxfam shot. Looking at the latter again I may be tempted to go back in and crank up the brightness and contrast.

I have plenty with sharp backgrounds and blurred figures. Sometimes I think that works better, sometimes not. This time, I'm happy with what's above. I suspect yours and gazza's photography course might have serious comments though.

Tis all subjective in the end, after all.

I always say that if the result is what YOU intended then the photo is right.

 

But when you post any photo in a place like this then it will get criticised on its content and not your intentions.

 

Advertisers have used blurred images quite often to put across the 'busy' feeling that you talk about,

Absolutely. Which is why I put them up. If I sounded defensive, I didn't mean to.

You did sound defensive, I would be the same. There is always that 'ah but' moment where you realise that something you presented isn't quite coming across as you intended.

A couple more of the bluebells, taken last night whilst out for a wonder with the wife & the in-laws dogs. All taken handheld, so not as sharp as some of my others, but it did give me more of an opportunity to wonder around and experiment with camera settings.

What does it mean
This tearjerking scene
Beamed into my home
That it moves me so much
Why all the fuss
It's only two humans being.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Help please! I've uploaded the photos from my phone to Flickr. Can I use their android app to upload them to here? And can this be done on the mobile version of this site? I've been looking but none of this is immediately obvious...(awaits immediate obviousness)

 I don't think you can use the android flickr site to post to here, but if you can access the website then copy and paste the relevant info, it should work to post them on the mobile version of this site. HTH.
