So I'm really late to the party here. Years, in fact it seems. Thank you SO much for the DD! I never in a million years thought that my stock would get one! :clap:

That said, I realize many of you wish it hadn't gotten one, based on your comments. All I have to say to you in general is...go use another person's stock then.

Thank you to the rest of you who made positive and/or constructive comments! I appreciate every one of them!

Please read the rules in my journal should you wish to use this image.

I don't understand what people are saying, this totally diserved the DD. It can be interpreted as anything you want, and what people are say is "grainy" makes me think it's actually happening in front of me. Nice job!

thank you :) I'm glad you liked the stock!

Oh no problem. It's unfair people are so harsh about this. I mean, it's like that old saying we all learned when we were five: If you don't have anything nice to say, don't sya anything at all.

Stunning emotion in this shot. When I saw it in the previews, it was an immediate shock and I had to click on it to see it. Fantastic projection of emotion here. Really great work.

I don't get why people are so angry or shocked that this got a DD. It's called stock with meaning. While she might not be expression her own emotions, she is showing them through her body placement. The arms on the chest represent vulnerablilty, and the fact she is sitting in that position shows innocence. Plus, it doesn't matter if it's grainy... it's part of the manipulator's job to edit photos... why does the stock photo have to be like an actual art photo.

I think this is beautiful... keep up the good work!

Great fundament up there!

And grainy or not, it's up to the user to make the image beautiful or not. The shot itself has a lot to give

It seems easy to get a DD with stock shot, I don't find anything special in this image or anything worth a DD. oh well...

Not really that easy to get DDs in stock.

The thing is that each category has a different set of rules when handing out a DD.

Photography, for example, needs to be crisp and clear, potentially have a message or even just be asthetically pleasing.

Stock has a different set of rules. It needs to be useful. This can mean a number of different sub-rules. EG: Can the image be used in a number of different styles of artwork? Is the image easy to crop out and/or would it be better for traditional work? Does the stock lend itself to a certain genre? Aka, does it have a dark theme, a sad theme, a bright and bubbly theme...

You just need to open your mind a bit. You can't say DDs can only be given out because people like the look of them. Sometimes DDs are given for their use instead of how they look already.
