With modern cameras, beautiful photographs are a dime a dozen.  The only photos that matter are those of historical events.  Personal photos are important to the person who takes them and no one else.

Art, of course, is a whole 'nother matter.

Boots, Map says that we need to follow the red arrow. Do you see a red arrow? There it is! Great job!

Anyone know if there's somewhere I can get these in higher resolution?

I found these all beautiful photos.  I wish I had that kind of talent to take such pictures.

Kudos to all of those.

I agree with you. But still, get an online gallery. I'm not under any delusions that I am creating outstanding photos or art or whatever, since I just point my camera at stuff and thusly don't even put watermarks or restrictions on my photos, but it does amaze me when I see the downloads of some pictures that are far greater than my own personal favorites. Different tastes and all that :D

With almost everyone having a camera of some sorts and the internet, photography like this should be shared. Real photography I mean. Not something filtered and photoshopped to hell and back.

The result of HDR filters is all the photography of the 21st century going to date very, very quickly.

I should mention... no filters on any of those.... I tend to be a purist and actually know how to use a camera and it's settings.

Your photos are shiat because you have not used filters.

They disgust me.

Daily Mail -- why you strip the EXIF data from the pictures? Why?

/ Ok, maybe the source removed the metadata, but I didn't see any that had such data

I'm assuming you mean Photoshop filters, because when I'm shooting outdoors I often use a circular polarizer to really dial in the look I'm trying to get with the sky and any water in the pictures.

Fans of composition would disagree with these statements in multiple ways.

Also my very limited personal

 ability to take photos of volcanoes, ocean depths, distant stars, or geographically distant locales.

Some of those are manipulated past the point of digital wizardry and directly into the realm of sh*t.

Well of course I meant Photoshop filters...I should have said post-processing for effects I guess.

A polarizer is part of the camera/lens system, and should be part of your basic "kit"... if anything, out of all lens filter, that is the one that I'd never consider as an "effect" but as a compensation for the lens and camera's limitations.  Is there a single lens that's as old and used as the polarizer?  (aside the UV which is used as a lens protector )

How many times in a row can we max out the saturation sliders? Let's find out... Hey, we won something!

Since the days of my youth, I've seen so many buy a camera thinking that owning such a machine made them photographers...

And now, thanks to the advanced systems and photo-shopping software, that number has multiplied quite a lot.

The worse ones of the people that go B/W and instantly they think themselves artists...

It's not just about the content of the shot, but every little detail that goes into it.

At least we get a lot of nice backgrounds for it, but sadly, it's no longer the "art" that it used to be.
