Maybe some old birds are sick of reading the same questions which had been "answered so many time over the years". But then again, the easier way out is really, if you're so agitated when you see such a question, you can always choose to ignore. There are bound to be people answer them anyway. Rather than hantam the newbies who might well maybe be just a bit "lazy".
Me on the other hand thinks some are very brave to ask certain questions, when u see the thread title, you're almost certain the regular few old birds will come in and kbkb them. Kudos to these brave newbies. I've never had the courage to ask much questions. Google won't scold me.
If you have a question you may get a better response when you PM someone in a forum whom you think can help you.
i think the seniors here are pretty good. they give their honest opinions and sometimes might just seem harsh and sarcastic.
then again, if every one of them said nice things about the photos and posts, no one would learn how to shoot better right?
exactly my point you can always choose to ignore and not go on a high and mighty powertrip and blast the newbie with their favorite putdowns
imo there is really something fundamentally wrong with people like that maybe they themselves get bullied at home or at work that they have to vent out their anger/frustrations here by picking on newbies
I google rhythm of odds, rythem of odds, come out all gambling things...???If you've noticed in your photo, part of the first tower is being obscured by the museum. The rythem of odds(3) is being disrupted. This gets worse as you move along the bay towards the Flyer's direction because the museum gets even closer to you and obscure more of the towers. Then there is an issue with compositional balance. Don't you find your photo left heavy? The museum and towers occupy so much space on the left where there is virtually nothing on the right(above the convention centre). These are reasons why I've never taken a shot of the MBS from the Esplanade side ever since the museum took shape.
Too cheem for me. Whole scene as main subject??? Huh???This photo is having the trees as your main subject. For me I would do it differently. I would choose the whole scene as the main subject and the trees are the secondary subjects to enhance the main one.
Pls see Zhang Jingna works with crop right at top of head:Can you imagine if I take a portrait photo of a person and cut off all the space around the face. Cropping right at the top of the head....
So how come all say this type of things... Can someone explain these statements to me???
This issue has been discussed before here, it is like the Olympus wide angle hokkien advertisement, someone will put it up here.
There are many newbies who takes the advices here but there is not even a word of thanks.

i especially hate the favorite LMGTFY i dont see the point of this... whats the end goal here? how is it supposed to help? its a plain and simple sarcastic and condescending comment designed to give the bully the buzz he gets when he puts people down...
but in general i do find the community as a whole very helpful its just that i wish there were less bad eggs that give you guys a bad impression
