Ditto....I use the D300. Great camera. However, this photo is a bit grainy. It obviously wasn't taken with the D300...

I guess one could nit-pick any piece to death, but I think this is a clever idea.

Yes, I remember the old days and dark rooms, which I loved. You're absolutely right. Today, photo editing seems to have turned into a totally separate art form from photography itself. Hence, photography contests vs. Photoshop contests here. I used to be of the "pure" belief, and for the most part, keep my photos true. However, I've learned that a little tweak here and there can really enhance a photo. Technology....what's one to do?? The bottom line....stay true to yourself and your art! Happy shooting!

I agree with you that photography is very subjective and can understand your friends' point of view. From a purely visual/design point of view, the clothesline interferes with the flow of the photo. Just my thoughts and certainly wouldn't want to persuade you to adjust your view. However, you can make changes. Once you've edited the photo, simply go to your profile, click on "My Entries" and find this entry. Click on the "Replace Image" box and upload your edited image.

And thank you for proving my point to the naysayer's of the photo choices. You prove that all it takes is a little imagination!! You go!!

If the water was more in focus, this would be off theme. It appears the author is focusing on the wet seagull.
