Kinbaku by ~RunLikeATortus This is a relatively simple tie, but it's fascinating how immobilizing "simple" can be. ( Featured by Nyx-Valentine )

This is a great shot :)
Unique composition, good technical skills, interesting rope work. Not polishing/airbrushing the model was a good move, since he's already a great looking subject, and not conforming to the same ideals and processing methods as everyone else is commendable.

It really is a shame there are so many sad people on the internet. People insecure and attention hungry enough to put other people down because "Bawww this got a DD and I didn't!".

Which is hilarious, since "boring and uninteresting" or whatever guy's gallery is a series of photos with no thought about subject, lighting, composition or how to process an image. I don't mean to put anyone down, I mean, maybe he'll learn to take a photo some day, if he quits whining and starts trying to learn. But it just goes to show that the people saying these horrible things actually have no idea about what goes into a good photo. Which means that their "comments" (baseless insulting drivel) are based on only their desire to put you down for being a good artist, instead of actually relating to the quality of the shot. Because judging by their galleries, they don't have the slightest clue what a good photo looks like anyway. 


Congratulations on the DD!

thanks for the indirect :)

My comment wasn't 'baseless insulting drivel' I was clearly stating the things in this photo which I felt (IN MY OPINION) you know people can have those.. weren't the best. Art is subjective and it's going to get analysed and not all people are going to like the same thing, similar to how you took a hit at my gallery... considering I actually commented about one photo I didn't say the whole guys gallery was bad. You felt the need to personally attack mine! Which I find kinda funny seeing as you just did a whole paragraph about how there are sad attention hungry people on the internet, I hope you include yourself in that category :) 

I've said my peace, the artist knows I wasn't shooting him down only giving him something to consider such as lighting/focus and composition. If you wanna be a bitch about it to prove a point then okay... it's the internet I won't try and stop you :)

I've got to say, I do like your reaction. I was expecting a freak out at my "attack" on your gallery (quite deliberate), but your response was reasonable. Essentially the point is in both cases that constructive criticism is a better idea. But since you agree that both were just attacks, I think we can agree that neither was reasonable or justified. 

I wasn't actually talking about your gallery, but that doesn't really matter. I wouldn't normally resort to that, but I felt it was useful to see how those attacking this piece responded to similar comments about their own art. 

But the quality of art is purely subjective. If you have technical  suggestions to make, by all means go ahead, but attacking someone else's art (like you did to hers, and I did to yours) we have shown to be neither useful or welcome. Much of what you said was subjective, and to do with your taste in art, in which case you can look else where for art that is more to your taste. But those types of comments don't have an objective basis, they are a matter of opinion, in which case it is best to state them as such or not say anything. You comments were instead insulting and attacking, which is not the right way to go about it. If you have a serious problem with it, take it up with the person who decided it should be a DD. If you have artistic input/critique, you should phrase it as such. If you can't offer any suggestions for improvement along with criticism, there really is no reason to believe that your criticism has any worth.

I don't think you've actually read any of the comments you're talking about, neither have you read the artists responses.
