- I live in the beautiful Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. My main photographic interests are nature and creative photography...to try and see a great picture remains a challenge.
Art is high quality human endeavour. I will learn about that from all of you here.
I do not believe in trampling on the work of the artist in the park and I would be seriously arrogant to confront him should I not like his work. Therefore, the correct thing to do is to just walk past. He will soon see by the response whether his work has appeal or not. Similarly here, and so I generally do not award zero or one point. It is either two points or nothing at all. Some say it is not being honest not to say so when you do not like something but that is not correct. And so ... there is no back-slapping. Just honest praise or none at all ... sometimes with some polite suggestion for improvement. And as far as the points system is concerned ... when I see someone with 40 000 points, for example, I immediately know that I am looking at a vastly experienced photographer - a real plus for me.
