DA

Hi,


Yup, thinking about leaving deviantart. Why? Due to the reason of last upload of topinka It was very interesting to saw it. What? Our new project One man, two faces (have idea, have interpretation...)bad?good? I dont know...Why? Due zero feedback on this. At the same evening topinka uploads photo of poppy (it was only good pic with wide range of postwork). What happens? Hundreds of favs and 16 comments.

My question is why da ppl prefer pics ("f1,8 style") with many edits and dont prefer idea and their presentation. We spend hours with this project, I think topinka presents it great (she is talented), but I am afraid of this.

Same artist, huge feedback on snapshot with edit...zero feedback on project with idea...sad.

Maybe I am touched with last days of many money spends on adverts about our photojob (with topinka) also with zero feedback. I am angry about thousands of shitty wedding photos of local "photoguys"...oh man, do you know using of sun in pic? Different look like in 80s...argh

Sorry folks

With love

D.

I hope you will not leave DA :hug: I know that DA is often frustrating, it is difficult to receive useful feedback, to receive attention and surely there are kind of photos and subjects that are more popular and in fashion here than others. But I think that this place is a continuous source of inspiration and I found a lot of friends here. Well, why don't you enable the "critique" system to receive more feedback? Or maybe always write a request of critique and comments under the photos... Don't give up :glomp:

Hi :wave:

I always enable critique button, maybe topinka dont :shrug: :D

Life is also sometimes frustrating :D but when we come to Italy, we give a photoweek with you :P (maybe go on bologna spaghetti - glutenfree due topinka :D)

Thank you Mary *hugs*

Well, I'm disappointed. But it's your choice and I'm not going to talk you out of it.

I might want to say, that it seems you really don't appreciate the feed back you do get, and the watchers that you do have. That perhaps not everybody loves every type of photo, and it may be asking too much to think they should. People like what they like.

And what's wrong with a nicely processed flower photo anyway?

Perhaps if you want the critical focus to be put on a certain style of your work, then don't post other types to draw attention away. On Topinka's journal [link] , under self promotion, she has many of the processed (and fine looking BTW) flowers you just disparaged. Perhaps, if you wanted some meaningful feedback on the project you mention, that should have been featured, with an explanation of what you were trying to accomplish, and specifically asking for feedback on that work.

Perhaps, instead of throwing a 'baby fit' on this journal, you could have made a nice introduction to your project and asked for thoughtful feedback.

I wish you the best in whatever you decide to do.

Whole journal is about topinka's gallery, not mine. Due to the reason that she is sad about this (not only me, my feedback, watchers etc...)

We introduce project in comments on every photo.

You write.."what people like" Okay, but I think its not only about "like". You dont like? Okay, write what. Many of us are not telephatist...

Zero feedback is nothing for us. Critique is helpful, nice comments is thankful.

If I must to beseech for whole thing we create, I finally think that I dont want to press on people, and why? They choose, I respect it, but want say my opinion.

I think I understood mostly the problem.

I'm suggesting there might be better ways to get the feedback your looking for.

Pressing people for feedback is not really out of line, it's a busy place on dA with busy people, and sometimes calling for extra attention on something may be necessary. This person I watch did just that [link] and she got lots of feedback that she was looking for. If you don't feel you want to do that, or that you should have to, that's your decision.

Hmm, veru smutne, ale pravdive. Bohužial je dost taka doba, kde sa mi zda že "predava" efekt na fotke ako fotka samotna. Vela ludi si myli pojem dobra foto... a to je škoda.
Poviem pravdu, aj ja softim, ale len do určitej miery... Ostrost a pod. som tiež prv upravoval, no teraz upravujem maximalne tak ramček na fotke... Ale na strane druhej, pekna decentna uprava vie tiež fotke pridat na krase... U mna je to tak 50/50 - štve ma ale, ked fotka, ktore je po kvalitativnej fotke hrozna a nema ziadnu myslienku je oblubena len vdaka tomu že ma krasne efekty od Photoshopu... potom je to skor fotomanipulacia a nie fotka. Ale to je vec nazoru...

Čo sa tyka posledneho projektu. Mne osobne sa fotky pacili, ale nemal som k nim proste čo povedat. Myslim si, že napad bol vynikajuci, ale proste ma to nejak nezaujalo.Možno ešte povodnu myslienku viac zvyraznit, neviem, tažko povedat...
dexter13-sk's avatar
No je to teda extremne smutne. Povedal by som, ze to uz ani s fotenim nic nema...proste hdr, levels, curves, bokeh, textury, actions a mam toho po krk. Dost ma to sere, lebo mam rad fotenie a stve ma, kd je to neziadane kvoli tomu, ze nemam milion hodin na upravy (neznasam to, znechucuje mi to radost z fotenia). Smutne je to, ze keby si sa dostal k originalu tych skvelych diel asi zaplaces...

Tito magori, co tu fotia svadby to je tiez exkluzivita. A neboja sa vypytat 20tis za to...ja s top sa traseme vypytat par tisic za "trosku" ine fotky a prerazit, ale dostat sa neak na oci, kd neosieras, nebalamutis ludi je vazne problem. Som uprimny clovek a veci hovorim otvorene, lenze dnes je lepsie presvedcit ludi, ze sice vidia hovno, ale je ruzove, krasna a tak to ma byt...

Ohladne projektu, mozno niekomu sadne niekomu nie. Topinka ma svoje podanie, moje by mozno bolo ine. Zalezi to od viacero okolnosti..a myslim, ze aj vyjadrit sa v zlom, je lepsie ako nic. (myslim kritiku)
Andre99's avatar
To je fakt.Original stoji zaprd a zrazu voala a "krasna" foto...

No o svadbach ani nehovor. U nas je to rovnako. Niekedy mi je až zarazajuce aky "typci" takto normalne pracuju, pričom ich fotky stoja zaprd... (to iste plati aj u videa, s tym mam ešte horšie skusenosti, strihat na novo niekoho posrane zabery, ale to je zas o inom)
No je fakt že presadit sa je tazke... Ludia sa daju lahko ovplyvnit kecami. Najhoršie je, že dnes sa skor "presadis" cez niekoho kto ma znamosti ako kvalitou fotenia... Ale čo už.Taky sme my ludia - sprostí a lahko ovplynitelní...

Tak tak. Tu je skupina sracov, ktory maju klub a navzajom sa chvalia jaki su skveli, riadia tu v meste vsetko a kazdeho, zacnu ti tykat a prikazovat hned jak ta stretnu...proste bozstvo. Nemienim sa takymto hovnam vtierat, tym padom neni job. Tak ok...davno hovorim, ze slovensko je pre bud bohatych, ojebavacov, zlodejov, vladnych ehm cinitelov, (pozicia za zlodejmi nie je nahodne, ti su naj) a ine zivly. Talentovany a slusny ludia chodte dpc.
Andre99's avatar
hh :D dobre si to popisal na konci...
Ale je to fakt. A jebat na nich z vysoka. Mne sa paci ist vlastnou cestou, robiť vlastny styl, vlastne veci, tak ako ja chcem a ako sa to mne paci... A ked sa inym nepaci, mam pici...
Dobre robis. Vidiet, že fotenie ta proste bavi, a či už ty alebo Topinka, robite pekne foto. Ja verim, že ludia sa ešte spametaju a budete mat zakazok tolko že nebudete stihat :P
Good luck ;)

I would have given you feedback if I could get time looking at the photographs, I actually love your photographs, would be so extremely sad if you left :(

Though the things is often snaps gets better but in your case, your snapshots is as good as my planned once, and for your planned onces are stunning.

Much Love fia
