Needs Improvement mossphoto 2008-04-28 14:31

HI Tamarin-

This is a very interesting photo. However, I'm not sure it belongs on TE. TE's purpose is to learn about the world through photography. I don't think this one teaches anything. A note may change that.

Default To mossphoto: TE's purpose is to learn about the world

So a Yemeni street-sweep who looks a little like Elvis doesnt teach us that the world is indeed bigger than the States?!

Youre actually the perfect candidate for TE...a closed minded photographer wannabee with little sence of humour.

Kind regards,
Tamarin

Tamarin-

If you had mentioned that this person was a street sweeper, and then explain what that occupation encompasses, that would have made it a perfect TE photo. For example, check out some of my photos of street sweepers in Delhi.

Also, your words are unkind, and uncalled for. They are also strictly forbidden on TE. The folowing as directly from Terms of Service:

Profanity, insults, and rude comments are not permitted on TrekEarth.

1. Retribution is not acceptable.
2. Email ombudsman@trekearth.com to complain about rude critiques or forum messages.


Also, for the record, my photography has earned me in excess of $1,000,000USD since I became a pro shooter. Not bad for a "photographer wanabee".

Please refrain from insults in the future.

Thanks!

Tamarin-

I was planning on just letting your comments go, and move on. However, I feel I must comment once again.

From your intro page, you said you "appreciate all your critiques, however nasty!"

For some reason, my entire message wasn't posted. I'll try again:

I have to agree that you are being too harsh on MossPhoto here...
