Re: Have quality standards changed on here recently?

Laws are different in different countries, but in the United States, if you are in public - even standing in your own yard - I can take your picture and post it wherever I want. As long as I don't use it for commercial purposes, there isn't much you can legally do to stop me. You could argue that u...

Re: Have quality standards changed on here recently?

Judging by the lack of interaction by the moderators / screeners I will take it as they do not know if consent was given from the subjects. I believe the photographer in question is a screener here too so it would be great to hear from him also.

Re: Have quality standards changed on here recently?

Just seen another Phuket special that's made it onto the front page ... whilst I like these shots I must ask if the photographer has the permission from the "subjects" (let's face it, the main subject isn't the aircraft flying over) to be posted onto a public website?

I'm not sure if it's just me but I think you need to look at your aspect ratio - try cropping at 3:2

What lens are you using? Are you cropping heavily?
