Intro
2102-10-11: 1000 pictures (still remaining, some have been killed by the moderators!)posted in 50 months, so 5 images per week, I got 22 smileys per image i-e 11 persons/photograph happy of my work (there is much room for improvement!); 13000 critics written, 387 workshops issued (this tool is not so often used here).
Sometimes I feel sad because many good photographers have left this site to create their own one or post on other websites.
Why? Look at the 2 sentences written by ex TE members:

- "After to have balanced the pros and the cons for a long time, I decided to leave trekearth, who cannot make me any more progress in the style which is mine"
Many many pictures are boring postcards as could say Martin Parr!

- "I am not very active in TE anymore just because of this: THIS is the attitude that is killing this site. I joined this site because it was mainly a site for photographers. Now it is just a site of friends, that care very little about photography"

Quand vous rencontrez un photographe, ne lui dites jamais "pour faire des photos comme ça, vous devez avoir un sacré matériel!" Cette phrase laisse sous entendre que le talent du photographe se résume à sa capacité d'acheter un bon appareil photo. Il est vrai que le matériel a son importance, mais le cadrage, le choix du sujet, l'éclairage, l'action, bref tout ce qui fait l'émotion d'une photo, sont à l'initiative du photographe.
