I think you are missing the point of why people are complaining about the photos. They're meant to represent a country at a global event and they are so far below the standard that would be expected for something like that. Sure, a lot of the anger is probably misdirected (you rightly pointed out earlier that the selection process is down to the editors) but that doesn't make the images suck any less.

I also don't think it's fair to imply that only professionals are allowed to make critiques on this collection of work. That would be like saying only restauranteurs, hoteliers and automobile manufacturers should be allowed to express their opinions on restaurants, hotels and cars respectively ;)

Anyway, I think the images suck but it sucks that he's taking so much flack for them when clearly something beyond his control happened.


And at the risk of opening myself up to critiques, here are a couple of shots from a recent trip to Amsterdam. I was there for a programming conference, so not much time for photos.

1. We saw canals,

Kev, it's not often we disagree but I guess there is a first time for everything. I was primarily talking about people on here, togs - you know, that yucky old saying about when you point a finger at someone there are 3 pointing back at you? I'm only arguing for respect and manners here. I'm afraid anyone on here seeking to consign someone to www.youarenotaphotogra​pher.com (external link) without even the most simple fact check should be questioned. That is all I am doing. No need to take cheap shots at what Cindy and I do.

Nice A'dam shots btw :)

And sorry mate, it wasn't meant as a cheap shot. It was meant in jest (hence the ;)) as I thought your complaint was about the general public and not specifically directed at photogs. I was just trying to emphasize that not everyone who has an opinion on something has to be an expert (though when I say it that way I can see why you might take offense to my 'example' :)).

No harm intended.

And in other news - I finally decided to be a musician again after 30 years. Should arrive on Friday I hope (I have my nose pressed against the window already) then I need to re learn how to play the damn thing!

Question me all you like, the pictures in question sucked.. Weather the release of the images was beyond his control or not?!

Being a professional he must have know they were not upto his usual standard which looking at his website is very high. If the release was out of his control then it is indeed sad that his rep has taken a beating, if he however decided they were good to release then more fool him!

Is there a youarenotamusician website too? ;) :p

The guitar is the one instrument I'd love to have learned how to play when I was young. I've tried a couple of times to have a go but just don't have the time for some serious learning of it all these days. Enjoy! :)

If there is, I thoroughly deserve to be on it. I can't even play some of the songs I wrote! I have a lot of catching up to do....

RE the Olympic photos I think the most important lesson is to have some control over the editting and selection process especially if your name is going to be on it. I remember the most reasuring things when I first went to a bike weekend with Rich was he takes bum shots as well.

On Saturday I was on a local bus and saw a horsedrawn Stagecoach coming up the hill towards me. There was just enough time to take a couple of iPhone pictures as it passed.

It wasn't until today that I came across a BBC new article.

I looked at the article and wondered ...

Yes. It was Nimrod. Well at least I know what it was doing there now.

Wow definitely something different and not bad considering it is an iphone

No - I still have a couple of steel string guitars that I played when I was younger. One is currently ripping my fingers apart as I write. But THIS guitar for me is like buying a Hasselblad.

The reviews on Amazon don't equate to the hype which put me off buying it.....how many have read it and is it worth it?

oh and fifty shades of Gray is Mills and Boon for the next generation, Mrs C read the trilogy in 2 days - apparently it doesn't move the literary movement forward :D:lol:

Just to add my 1p worth ... I heard someone call it "Mummy Porn" ... reckon that's a good description! It's caused such hype and I really don't know why ... like Mrs C I read them in a couple of days and was very unimpressed. It's a romance novel with some naughty bits in it (and of course, they're PERFECT naughty bits too) ... load of rubbish!

As it's been so long since I've managed to pop by to say hello, I just wanted to prove I AM still taking photos ;) ...
