Man that guy is dumb.

I mean, he might have a point, if artistic photography was only about the finished product. Or about what you see in a quick glance at the finished product, since that is apparently all he took.

Hell, if I used his logic, there would be no reason to do portraits ever again.

Then there's the fact that the community at no point says that it is strictly reserved for artistic photography. I could post a hundred identical, mundane pictures, and so long as a put all but one of them behind a cut I'd be within the rules.

I think the shot is lovely.

I had no idea my work was to be lumped in with the entirety of photography done ever. By his logic, pretty much no photo needs to be taken ever again. What in the world hasn't been photographed?

I'd be fine arguing the specifics of the photo, who cares if the subject is tried? In fact, I'm even willing to admit that my photo is less exciting because of the current body of work, but this does not negate any and all merit of the photo in and of itself.

What I'm especially curious of is why he has done this to me twice now. I've not seen him comment on anything else in this community recently, if ever.

Heh, I had a different guy do pretty much the same thing to my first post in that group, but I managed to coax at least a little something constructive out of him. Your guy seems like quite the jackass.

Anyways, I quite like your shots. Mind if I add you?

Indeed. I have no problem with criticism assuming the person is making valid and non-snarky points. This was just annoying. I hate to dismiss him outright as I've seen some of his stuff, and it's pretty good. Eh.

Go right ahead and add me. People are nifty. :)

Um...I got pissy and said something rude-ish to him. Do you want me to delete it?

I say keep it! It's not like it's an unpopular photo, more that he's getting a taste of the snark and no one's backing him up.

Mister bunnyman, to this I say:

At least unlike some people, YOU get a popular article on some of your work. Can't please all of the people all of the time, but even if you could, there's always someone that snarks it up for the sake of the snark.
