@  eyoismos : (14 February 2015 - 01:41 AM) its actually worse than that. according to wiki Cairo -> city: 10,230,350, urban: 18,290,000 metro: 20,439,541 - thats twice the population of the whole of greece... in once "city" .... and that is just one of many habitation areas - damn straight egypt is the culprit of the pollution
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 12:44 PM) But man, so over populated, 12 million or more in just Cairo when i was there
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 12:43 PM) Im not that suprised if egypt is the culprit with the pollution
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 12:42 PM) Eloo Set ! yes my lawn mower is a 4 stroke  :tongue:
@  set2love : (13 February 2015 - 11:27 AM) Ajax, you sound like a 4 stroke type of man lol

@  eyoismos : (13 February 2015 - 10:51 AM) we wash via borehole water, the majority of the rest through waters pumped from the might zambezi, that has nothing to do with the nile
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 10:50 AM) that would explain what the chemical spills are, clothes detergents  :rofl:
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 10:49 AM) im off geia sas
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 10:48 AM) Anyways, i need to do some washing with washing machines, eyo you wash clothes at the nile ?  :tongue:
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 10:47 AM) follow the flow, then you'll find the culprits  :tongue:
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 10:46 AM) so dont blame Egypts industrial here
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 10:45 AM) nai ala the flow goes to egypt from other countries right, then the pollution is coming to egypt from else where
@  Ajax : (13 February 2015 - 10:45 AM) and i went on train and saw jungles from way down from egypt
@  eyoismos : (13 February 2015 - 10:44 AM) yes it does flow THROUGH africa TO egypt ,and egypt DOES have way more industrialization than the rest of them put together

are we now nit-picking about the word "amazing" ......or..... you are just jealous that you were not the lucky bastard that managed to snap that shot?

dont know about you, but i certainly am

( for the record.....amazing, adjective - causing great surprise or sudden wonder.)

00.1% of the time imo & its for scenery shots or building that's if nothing has changed in the scenery or building, it also must be done within the same time frame or month of year even. Also taking the shot at same angle again is important for it to be similar. But when it comes to action shots, it's never the same again, ever.

Take these shot of mine, one is of the Vatican dome & the other of Venice canals, i have seen many similar ones to mine & done in many years btw them, scary !!!. Being higher quality & more artistic which is what separates the good photographers from snap shooters.

I hope mine do well in an exhibition one day, hope they do. Really hope they do ! :unsure: :unsure: :unsure:

Geesh i get carried away when it comes to photo talk..............................I'm sure you can see my passion for it by now. :on_the_quiet:

So paying $100000 for a photograph is justified......

I guess a photograph's worth is what people are willing to pay for it!

Oh absolutely. To give you an idea, i believe photographers who work for national geographic earn 250k plus at least. National geographic only accepts the best photographers the world has to offer for each particular photographic situations as each photographer is an expert in different situations such as landscapes,wild life, under water & travel or documentary work. And others who are wholly for the art side of it, these ones know how to literally paint with light & the stuff they produce is extraordinary, some have made millions from a single image.

Here is an artist photographer who sold $4.3 million from one image.

But for me its not the money, never was, its the art its self, i really enjoy it.

I had a digital camera a few years ago. I was working in an office and bored out of my mind so I decided to bevome a photographer.

Took lots of photos of buildings roads garbage bins (you think I'm joking but I'm not) and then to build up my creds I photoshopped them 'adjusted the lighting' added sepia effects black and white etc etc

I only stopped when I realised how dull the whole endeavour was. Waking around with a digital camera and tripod did not make me mysterous or alternative enough.

Part of the problem is that I don't know the difference between a 'good' photo or as Ajax said an 'artistic' photo and a bad or ordinary one.
