I have to ask. Maybe this requires a new thread. what makes this formation so special ? Is it a different type to a usual cave formation ? Does it form differently?To sum up
I try to make my photography differant. Anything bland or formulaic ( in my view ) is left out. I also try to do minimal editing as many images we see on social media are horribly " overcooked ". Yup I do like to be controversial as well ( the opposite to bland ). Any response here is welcome in that respect. Here is a little story.
My son is a photographer. At the seaside he spent ages getting a view of seawater pouring between posts just off shore. It looked a great shot. I said try Google Image when you get home. Yup. Dozens of others had thought the same thing. - Formulaic.
Yes Captain you are probably right. ( you missed that bit ). Fulk has a point too. Why bother ? I just love cave photography done simply. No point at all if its not shared whatever the context.
Three more " differant " views will appear next week.
Er umm I think thats what I meant. We wont waste space here discussing semantics. Its just that I like to take photos differently from the norm if they turn out crap is anyones opinion.Hi TOR, I'm not trying to be argumentative, but I am intrigued about your comments regarding your son's picture above.
So he got what you acknowledge is a great shot, but then discovered that several other people had thought on similar lines; does that make it formulaic? Sure, had he gone out to ape other folks' pictures, then you could say so – but I infer from what you wrote that he had the idea . . . which happened to be similar to that of some other people.
