Hello to everyone here! I have only been here about a week now and LOVE lots of images and ideas I have seen! I try to pick images based on the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) guide lines. Ill be honest. After only a week of picking the best image Im really sick of purple flowers with water, female Indian head dress, India girl with close up with 150 images of the same girl in there portfolio, little girl in black and white with hair a mess and last but not least fruit falling into water!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOME of these images are AWESOME. NOT ALL 150 images of the same subject are awesome! By the 3rd or fourth image I judge IT HAS LOST ITS IMPACT! The ooooh and awwww is just lost! PLEASE if a person wishes not to work outside the box and photograph and submit the SAME OLD STUFF OVER AND OVER then PLEASE make or add some sub categories JUST FOR THESE PEOPLE so that they can just compete against them self and win every day. Just my thoughts. Don't get me wrong but honestly, I'm already burnt on many of these images already and I HAVEN'T been here a year yet, only a week.
Ideas:
Orange flowers with water drops
Different Indian girl PLEASE!
Different India girl with red stick, paint the stick blue.
Use a comb on your subject, can she even smile. gosh she looks so sad in every image its depressing.
Drop beer, whiskey, sodas, cars, microwaves, coffeepots in water, frogs I don't care!
That's my 2 cents. Your welcome to rip my prints apart all you want!! Please do.
If your making money hand over fist on the purple flowers with water drops etc. Your welcome to tell me to buzz off!! We have got to push outside the box or we wont grow!

Amen brothers and Sisters, another has seen the light...I complained about the same thin a couple of days. it has been passed onto management..Aye right, more likely binned lol
Wonder why the "management can't see what is happening after months if not years of complaints hmm" As me old Ma used to say if it looks like shit,and tastes like shit,it is shit!

Well I just had two images pulled and for what reason NO FREEKING CLUE!
Thanks PIXOTO for letting me know I was doing something wrong or putting something in the wrong class.
I use much more photoshop to create the image I have in my head. I think well crap guess I dont. I can see now that Its better to get out while the getting's good.
You pull images from a NEW person to the group. But people on top of a pole are still in the "RUNNING" Challange.!!
Well this was fun for a week. Im done!! Best wishes to you all!
God Bless!

Troy - I'm sorry for your frustration. Whenever we remove an image we would send an email. Did you receive one. We only remove images that are not allowed on the site (usually a watermark or text on the image). If the photo is in the wrong category we just re-categorize it. I'm happy to look into this further if you like.

Just wanted to say to the group and you all Im sorry for getting bent out of shape over something to childish! Just got my little feelings hurt I suppose. I can bring something from to add something to the group! There are sure a ton of photographers with a plethora more talent than myself!!! ( oh about 100% of you)
I will try to add to the group and stop thinking of me all the time and whats in it for me.
Is it OK with you all to bring my film and camera back to play?

LOL check out whats in "the photographers" challenge, HINT its purple!!
Now thats some funny stuff.

hahhahaha :) These flowers are just phenomenal and don't foolish yourself if you think they are similar or they just look alike. Just count the water drops and you will see how they are different and unique . ;)

By the way, Troy's original post suggested dropping anything into water other than fruit. Someone bought into it (or many people did) -- cause they are doing just that! Toys, balls, you name it - they've dropped them into water!
