    Wait, does this mean that ANY girl can become a "model"? After all, one photog's beauty is another photog's troll. My mother thinks I'm pretty, but that doesn't necessarily mean I should be on the cover of Vogue.

    good question, what do you mean by model? A supermodel? A fashion model? or a subject in a portrait shot. I'm sure you've seen photographs in the NatGeog magazine of rather...old women/men (wrinkled skin, baggy eyes, the works =X). Yet, the photograph portrays the emotions of that elderly person so vividly. I'm not alone if I were to comment that those photographs are beautiful.

    But alas, you are right, beauty is subjective. But, in response to instances of extremely acrid remarks made regarding the physical features of models, I think the model can find out for himself/herself how she/he looks in the eyes of others.

    Obviously, there are certain CONTEXTS in which the model can be "criticized". National Geographic is context completely different from the one we are referring to in this thread. Ugh.

    Like I've mentioned before, if the model's appearance serves the purpose of the photographer... if the photographer wants a below-standard model... then who am I to criticize... La la la la!

    Whatever it is, enjoy the weekend (one way is to stay away from this thread ), I know I will cos I'm off to Hong Kong to get my hands on the new HTC Diamond!! And then return to catch the opening Euro 2008 game.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.

    I also can be a model.

    You know those slimming advertisements in the newspapers? I can be the "Before" model. Anyone wants to be the "After" model?

    If a person does not want his or hers pictures to be commented on, then, he or she better make sure these pictures are kept private, and especially not posted on a photography forum.

    If a model looks old, why is the remark "old" sound acrid? You are too politically correct in your approach! And that is a compliment.

    For the sake of mankind, please, those guilty ones out there, for the love of all STOP with the analogies. They are just so putrid, immature and does not serve to get the message across. Just makes things more confusing.

    I would suggest being more selective with your battles
    i would suggest that you make more logic as well

    movie critics do not make movies, food critics do not necessarily cook

    by saying that only someone who has shot something can comment on that thing is ridiculous and ludicrous.

    pat pat, i have taken photos of children and people as well, you need to spend more time looking through my gallery. and if you do not consider swans, squirrels and people living things, time to look up the scientific dictionary

    i am glad that you do not comment on landscapes, but you do not have to enforce your own ridiculous brand of logic on me. are you saying now that people cannot comment on your maggi mee stunt unless they have done it too? oh dear, talk about your preaching of free speech.. double standards.. (once again)

    you know , i will say here that i take more offense at this than garou12's comment about me looking like a very cute monkey that i shot.

    for one thing, khtee has no bloody idea what he is talking about, i don't see a single linkage between his post and the exchange between me and dp..

    this was very amusing for me

    I have faith in most of the participants here alright..

    But I noticed that some over there at EDWM seems to pay quite a close attention to the models or event pics posted here and linked our pics there now & then.. maybe I am a bit pessimistic, but I tot if a fraction of them decided to gang up here they may well outnumbered us by a few folds..

    For example, your sentosa bird shooting thread which is so hugely popular gather around 100+ replies and 8000+ views here in CS, that is already consider a huge number by CS standards. But one check at EDWM and there are actually quite a number of threads with more than 10,000+ replies and 100,000+ views..

    I am worrying the CS community may kena stampede if the moderation is removed...

    You will see that people do speak up when they feel that certain comments are unhleahty for the direction of a discussion.
    Have a little faith in the general intelligence of the participants here yeah?
    The reason why EDWM is screwed up like that is because people have given up on saying anything worthwhile there.

    What you are driving at is further censorship? Worst, it's censorship that pertains to comments on pictures and elements inside the pictures.

    IF HWZ failed, does it means CS needs to become thought police?

    I am absolutely using extreme examples here, but then purely to counter irreverent comparisons.

    Nope.. not driving at further censorship, just share my tots on why I have reservations on complete removal of censorship, as some have suggested here..
    I tot the idea is quite idealistic but may have some practical issues ..
