@  eyoismos : (29 August 2014 - 10:42 AM) after all .... some of us complain about muslim practices... but again, then, we dont count, - only Muslims and their pseudo-supporters are allowed to complain

@  eyoismos : (29 August 2014 - 10:40 AM) and the fact that the post in there for all to see shows hidden agenda... if the topic is "problematic" then delete it, like they always do - else have the balls to keep it open and alive for people to have their say ... two faced is what i say
@  eyoismos : (29 August 2014 - 10:38 AM) its actually 72, according to a certain muslim website
@  set2love : (29 August 2014 - 10:36 AM) The fact the post is still up and pinned shows that someone must have complained about it....i agree with what Zorba said in the post ...just had a question...when did the virgin count rise to 73?
@  eyoismos : (29 August 2014 - 10:35 AM) maaaannnn do i love to stir the pot - hahahahahhaa
@  eyoismos : (29 August 2014 - 10:35 AM) cockroaches apparently have more rights than the rest of us - animal farm here we come

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.
