I quite like this picture. I was slightly surprised to find it in the DDs but now that I take another look at it, I really like the blurry, and grainy motion in the background and how the tiny gold fish is more prominent. Actually, more than like it, I love it! Congrats.

Despite what all the other negative comments say, I really like the eerie atmosphere of it. :)

Blur magic. I see ppl complain about the Tech vs the Vision. I'm sorry but I don't see any vision or concept in this..I mean after you see surreal you see surreal It needs so much more. It looks like a photoshop fish pasted into a trashy tree. It's obvious the quality of DD's is growing dim. I mean I understand a DD doesn't have too be a "God" picture but still I see far better things in their gallery then this that deserves a place.

It's an analog photo and there's probably no copying and pasting involved in the creative process. This DD was given for the concept, because this artist was able to see something special that would be overlooked by most other people.

Apart from that: How about suggesting DDs instead of just complaining that the "quality of DDs is growing dim"? :)

FAQ #18: Who selects the Daily Deviation and how is it chosen?

Iv'e tried many times with no result, I have the right to complain completely. If they actually took my advice I would care, this DD is junk and it's my opinion.

Which kind of photos from the abstract and surreal category would you like better?

Psh. I've been barking up that tree for awhile now, all to receive folks shoving the post about what to do when you don't like a daily deviation in my face.

You want to find a way to bring quality back to the dd folder without butthurt people riding you at every turn?

Heh. Good luck.

Exactly. It's up too people too at least write too the founders and DD's choosers too pick a more wise picture each day. I understand the tastes in different art and how much it helps the artist get known but you need too be rewarded for effort

"but you need too be rewarded for effort"

Maybe in the factory, or maybe not :confused:
But in art? Isn't it the result that counts?

. . .

Every time you wrote "too," it should have been "to."

"Too" means "also" (i.e., "I like that song, too.")

"To" is either a preposition, "they went to the store" or an adverb: "after I came to."

Make sense?

I agree. I don't see much effort or care to this pic.

Is it weird that I LOVE this?
I can't say what this picture is all about... but at the same time I feel as though the goldfish isn't telling the story... or even it in. It's as though... we are the subject and the goldfish is the audience. It's probably wayyyyy off of what you've thought, but that's just my thoughts -shrugs-
