Needs Improvement Klapaucius 2006-05-16 3:56

I don't get it... surely not all of TE is made up of perverts?
This image is very poorly defined, out of focus, very bad quality. The composition and framing are poor, in my opinion.
All this image, and its response, tells us about the world is that men like breasts. Show photographers a cleavage and its the best image they've ever seen, regardless of actually how good it is technically or in reality.

Default To Klapaucius: Bad comment

Hi Robert
First thanks to have a look at my galery and to find this picture.
I don't know why you found this one (I have only one like this) . Maybe because you also are a pervert ?
Of course the quality is not top. Due to the noise and the sharpness, and due to the download because this is one of my first post and at this time i didn't know how to download.
For me the focus, the light, the frame and the move are artistics.
That's why i posted it.
If you don't like, it's your right, and i have nothing to say about that.
For me there is nothing pervert in it, but only an artistic work.
It's an homage to the feminity.
It's also the real life.
Thanks and best regards
Bertrand

Just so you know, I 'found' it because it was on the front page of TrekEarth.

My comment on 'perverts' refers more generally to the amount of attention your image has drawn.

I also gave a proper critique of your image.

It is of course my opinion on the photo. All critiques are merely opinion, and how you receive people's opinions determines how you will grow as a photographer.

Isn't all pornography a 'homage to feminit'? Perhaps.

I'm not saying this is pornographic. Not in the least! I am a great fan of photographs that appear in Photobooks (or 'PB') in Japan, for instance. Here the photographers are showing feminity using the model of the Photobook. Most images are of the girl's fully clothed, and not even of cleavage or anything titulating or erotic about them.

I judged your image as I would judge an image of this calibre. Against 'PB' images from Japan.
I found it to be rather poor, in that respect.

I also do not like the definiton, focus, or colour in the image. But now I am repeating my critique...

The angle and POV are very good. I do not dispute that. It is the other aspects of the image that, for me, fail it.
That is my opinion though. :)

Regards,
Richard

It's OK
It's your opinion and i can't say anythig about the artistic aspects of the picture. I thank you to comment it however your critic is negative.

But please, i don't like when you say about all the members who gave their opinions already that they are pervers. And maybe you say about me too.
I try to post different styles of picture : portraits, landcapes...; with notes even my english is bad.
I have really a big respect for all the people i meet and i stay with, all over the world, especially for childrens or mothers. I have an important knowledge about the human condition, because it's my work and because i have lived long time in differents cultures and traditions.
I invite you to see more pictures from my galery

I am not saying you are a pervert. Like I said in my last comment, I do appreciate this 'style' of photography, to a degree.
I just think it is funny how this image got so much attention, from the largely male crowd on TE. You have to admit, that very often, images that show women in this way do get much more attention and more comments than most other images.

Not really
Have a look at this one :
http://fr.trekearth.com/gallery/Europe/Spain/photo224971.htm
More attention, more point, more favorite and no woman.
And that's right for most of my pictures and for the other members too

Yes... you found a photo with merit on TE. There are no doubt hundreds of them.
In did not say that only photos of women get points.

but for me, the picture of the woman is more artistic; more difficult to do, more surprising, more unusual than the picture of the houses in Spain. (but also less sharp, ok)
