Beautiful, colorful, and magnetic. Great details, and is, all in all, an amazing macro.

Well, you have the potential to be very good at photography. But this affect to other people might be somewhat detered by all of the "music" pictures. Great for a photo album, or your scrap album, but not what is considered to be best work, which is something to be submitted to a gallery. Your gallery is supposed to be a reflection of you. One of those photos would be good, but an excessive amount seems so repetative. What I suggest, so that people can still look at them, is to put them in your DA scrap album.

Thanks for the comment.

First of all, why is band photography not considered to be "best work"? there are some amazing band photographers out there (DA or otherwise) that take amazing photos, just cause it is not considered "arty" by some means nothing. And why doesn a gallery have to be a reflection on the person it is? i don't belive it has to be, even though mine is, cause i enjoy the music, live shows, and i enjoy photography, i don't enjoy set-up studio work, or full on minpulation as it fees false to me. i like the real world, what is happening out there, even if it is gritty. Don't get me wrong, there is some great set-up and minp stuff out there, it's just not for me at the moment.

I ain't trying to have a go at you, i just think it's abit egotistical of you to try and state that everyone on DA would rather me put my band photography in the scrap section when i know DA groups of 100's of people that love band photography over other genres, and people who don't like it can eirther go around them, or not look at my gallery, i don't do photography to please others, i do it because i enjoy it, if others don't like what i do, i think they know where they can go...

No, I didn't mean that it wasn't your best work. I just meant that it's excessive. It's okay to love something, and to show that in your gallery, but people visiting might feel as if they're looking at the same thing over and over again.

People do band photography professionally.
Those that are interested in it definitly don't see it as seeing the same thing over and over.
For those us that try and sell our work, it's not "scraps" or photo album stuff, it's our art.
Band Photography has a bad name due to over-excited little kids taking grainy photos at gigs, same way that other genres have trouble with keeping in the "real artists".
I love it if people who don't understand band photography - i don't understand manga and all that stuff - far as i can tell, when i look at a gallery of a manga (just as an example, there's lots of other stuff i mean), i feel i'm just seeing the same stuff over and over again.

To see that some of us are serious (i for one use my scraps for its purpose - scrappy, unfinished pieces go there, my final pics go in my gallery), check out............

xnoizex (a group into band pics, hardcore etc) somnifac browneyedd abrade minno9 sarahdope
[link]
[link]
(both links the band work of...... xtankgirlx )

I am able to (and i expect most are) to distinguish between different styles and so on and i learn from what other do!

This is why i've been thinking (very seriously) about getting a real petition to ask admin for a section for us in photography. I want to be able to search for photos that i'm interested in, rather than having to sift through "misc", "expressive" or "journalism" - i don't want to put my pics in any of those cats, but they go in journalism for now.
There's as much thought put into the composition, lighting etc of band photos as there is other styles, be that still life etc etc. We have to learn how to deal with different lighting at different venues, the constante insance movements of a lot of artists (my main struggle!) and so on.

Just becuase you don't understand it and tire of seeing it, doesn't mean every1 else does to.

Thank you.

I gave you my opinion. Whether or not you take it is up to you. You do, however, have no need to defend what was never given as an offense, only a suggestion.

Very well, i was not offended, only trying to explain to you, as you didn't seem to understand, that band photography is as serious an art as anything else on here (and more so than some, in my opinion!).

Really great shot, the colors are so vibrant. I do wish I could see more of what's going on behind it though. It's kind of funny, looking at this picture, I want to eat it. The flower I mean, I want to bit into it. I imagine it would be kind of crispy, and very juicy, if not a little bitter. Hehe...yeah, great shot.

thanks for the comment. I now nothing about flowers, so don't now what this is, i'd never even heard of a bromelaid till i looked it up in google, and by some of the photos i found, i think this [link] may well be a bromeliad, kinda looks like the ones i found, and this photo was taken in the same garden as this one, just telling incase your intrested, hehe :)

In my opinion, the shot it self seems rather plain and somewhat dull. I am referring to the shot though, not the subject. The flower I think is very lovely, and immensely colorful (duh). I don't think I have seen anything like this, so I thank you for sharing.

As a suggestion, why not try taking shots of flowers, if you do that often or intend to again, from different angles to frame its beauty in a different light. Straight on or from above shots are rather, well, dull.

Why take a picture of something you find boring? Doesn't make much sense to me.

how are you mean't to know you find a angle / composition / situation / colour patten etc boring or unintresting until you expreiment with it? i like playing about with stuff and seeing what others thing aswell as my own opinion, why i post alot of the stuff i take, to get a more genral view, why i appreciate that you don't like this piece :)

When you take the shot initially, do you know know if the image is "boring", in your own opinion? Sure, you can play around with an image and change how it looks, but all you can do is work with the base you've captured, which, most of the time, is what the viewer comments on. So . . . I'll let you make of that what you will.
