To smarcell: You are not alone...

There are others who see it like this, and I logged in specifically to let you know that I agree with your honest critique, and I was very excited to see such rare initiative. I am afraid though,...

Marie-Louise, I've learned several important things since posting pictures online. One is that a picture never looks as amazing as the real-life subject it represents, unless maybe the photographer...

Hi Marie-Louise,
I am quite surprised and regret of course that my critique left you feeling "completely worthless". The site indicates that you posted 170 images and wrote more than 4000 critiques,...

"The requested page was not found at TrekEarth."

This is an issue I've been confronted with for a good little while now, and it is getting to be very annoying. When trying to display a TE page, after a few seconds the message below replaces the new...

Same problem here

I presume this is among the problems mentioned by the admin under the thread "What the Tech Team are working on currently" in the "Announcements" forum. I have seen no improvement so far.

Zenit

It is a fully manual camera, with a reliable metering system. These selenium cells still work 40 years later. Not refined but solidly built: I hurled mine down mountains more than once by accident,...

To Jakab: I agree...

The background is distracting, I should have used the largest aperture in order to try defocussing it a bit. With a wide angle lens that cannot go wider than f/4, this would not have been overly...

It's a tough spot...

In season it is quite tough to get a spot on the bus there on a short notice. The mountain weather does not like advanced planing...

This sounds reasonable but...

Your suggestion has advantages but overall I do not think it is reasonable. I agree that this would diminish considerably reciprocal backslapping, which is indeed somewhat annoying, but it would also...

Hey Nelu

The truth is that on occasions, the abundance, or shall I say, prevalence of phony critiques on these sites annoys the heck out of me...
Hope all is well!

Re: To Roly: blue snow

Yes Martin, I agree with you. What I was saying is that the blue color of the snow in this picture seems a bit too saturated.

Re: Copy of photos... within TE!

Nice job spotting this, there is no doubt that it is the same image. I thought the site administration was rather tough on plagiarism, an deactivated accounts for this reason. When did you report,...

Re: critques

Really meaningful critiques are rather scarce these days, and if you aim for quality critiques you might have to give up on quantity. But a really useful critique once in a blue moon can help a lot....

Re: critques

The basics are quite simple John, you wrote 57 critiques and received around 70, so you are getting back more than you are putting in. Flowing ravings reward remarkably images or, more often, are...

Re: To Roly: Yes and no...

No, my monitor is not calibrated in any way. I considered the option, but images seemed to look quite good on it as compared to other monitors. Aside of this, I don't do my own printing so...

Re: To Roly: Noise

Thank you for the recommendation Nina, I found it very useful and ended up spending two nights at Hotel Bernardi. The prices are very competitive given the location in Cannaregio, and the quality is...

Re: To Roly: Hi Roly....

I was referring to the boy's dad. I find that through its placement, proportion in the frame and expression his face is the focal point of the image, even if you wanted to emphasize the boy. So it...

Re: Quality of the photos ?

Very good observation Filipe! I have not paid much attention to the beta version lately, and you correct. The images on the beta site are roughly 10% larger, which is strange since I was under the...

Re: Copyright Infringement and theft of Trek Earth photos

I think it was a great idea, and I presume that many photographers on the site would be willing to provide their images at no cost for a non-profit project.

Re: How do you get people to comment/critique your photos?

Yes, pretty much that's what it is, unfortunately. Members tend to congregate into groups with common interests, some more focused on the improvement of their skills and some more on the social...

Re: How do you get people to comment/critique your photos?

Very easily: get involved and critique the images posted by other members. You have not posted one single critique so far! Adding notes to your images also helps matters.

Re: Copyright Infringement and theft of Trek Earth photos

It's quite simple, you need to contact the photographers who's images you intend to use, individually, and reach an agreement with them. Preferably, a written agreement (transfer of copyright). There...
