Mighty God...
How did you manage to shot that beauty...

Did you use some kind of a camera or something ?

Full of dynamics and movements...
Also... Shot in color...!
Great achievement in the field of photography.

BTW: Grossly, very unjustly underrated photo...!!!
Only 58 points for such a stunner...

Default To Polonaise: Ironique!

Je pense que la pauvreté de mon anglais m'avais mal fait interpréter votre commentaire dont je ne perçois que maintenant l'ironie. Chacun a le droit d'exprimer ses opinions!

Je n'ai pas du tout la prétention d'être un photographe de talent, ni même un photographe tout court. Je prends des images pour mon plaisir et je les fais partager. On aime ou on n'aime pas, peu importe. Je suis venu sur ce site pour apprécier des images du monde entier prises par les membres de TE, me donner des idées de voyages et de photographies....pas pour faire une exposition photo. Quand une photo me plait, je la commente, quand elle ne me plait pas, je passe mon chemin....elle plaira à d'autres.En tout cas, je ne me permettrai jamais de rabaisser le travail de quelqu'un!
Quant au système de points....tout le monde sait ce qu'il vaut. Comme sur la plupart des sites de ce type, il y a une forme de réciprocité conviviale dans les commentaires et aussi des signes d'amitiés d'autres membres (vous n'y échappez pas non plus). Je ne suis donc pas dupe quand on me met un grand nombre de points sur une photo qui ne le mérite certainement pas.
En toute cordialité
JJ

Hey...1
It's not the photo that bothers me...
The photo is a photo is a photo...
Anybody can do such photo.. There is absolutely nothing in it to even comment upon it...
It's not even a photography - it's a registration.
You have the registration device - a camera - you come closer and you click the button... Done !!!

And, it's not about the photo the whole ordeal...

It's about those awful, stinky critiques about this photo...
And the other one...And, another one...And dozens of them...and then - hundreds of them !!!
Over and over and over again...

There are in there the most exquisite photographs posted on TE with the grossly undervalued awards..
6-10 points or none at all ?
How would you explain the class of your photo ? A class that deserves so many points...For what...?
It's a somebody else work. That beautiful poster or painting on the wall in Paris.
Where is your effort in it? What did you do to make your fotka as valuable as that work of art in there ?
You came and you click the button and that's why you got those 'ohs' and 'ahs' for your work ?
What work ? What photography ?
It's just the simple registration of someone else's work.
Not even the slightest effort of showing us the context...The surroundings... The emotion.
You registered something and a bunch of your friends came and awarded that complete nothing with the tons of smiles ????

Where is the logic in it..? Where is the smartness... The intelligence... The decency...???



Experts, eh ?????

J'ai horreur des polémiques inutiles!
C'était la photographie d'un instant qui a peu duré et qui dévoilait les anciennes affiches du métro. Cela m'a semblé suffisant pour faire une photo. J'ai peut-être eu tort. je m'excuse de ne pas avoir votre immense talent ni votre grande intelligence, chacun fait avec ce qu'il a!
J'aurais préféré avoir cette critique que vous venez d'écrire plutôt que celle écrite sur le ton de la moquerie!
Ce sont mes dernières paroles sur ce sujet

Juste un dernier mot : ce n'est pas un poster, une affiche ou un quelconque travail artistique mais des lambeaux de vieilles affiches du début du métro (d'où le titre)réapparus à l'occasion de travaux de restauration et ce sont ces bouts d'affiches qui m'avaient semblé intéressants.

Who cares...
It's just a nice piece of art in there... On the wall...
Good !
You have registered it for us to know ...
Good and thank you...

And, now...Read the critiques ...
Why would TOU be awarded for somebody's else work...

For what ???
For having a camera and click the button ?

That artist in there...This painter or whoever...
He did his work beautifully...

Why did you get all these awards ???
Why they awarded you with the dozens of green monkies...???

They praise your photography skills ...

What skills ???
You just pressed the button... The dumbest thing there is ...
Where is the photography in there... Where is the brain ???

This is exactly what I meant in my last mail George, you are looking down on people who are not as smart as you think you are...

It's mean!
