I admit it... I have a quirk. I HATE powerlines in my photos, ANY photos. I mean HATE. I will spend hours trying to get a great shot of a great subject without showing powerlines. Sometimes I can make it work with them included, like using them as supplemental leading lines or as a component enhancing physical depth. Sometimes I will remove them in post-processing.

So... Does anyone else have little quirks like this?


Just a noob with a Rebel T3 (1100D).

I don't think anybody likes power lines in any photo. Coming in second is contrails.

There always seem to be people who park themselves in front of landmarks and don't move. If they don't move, harder to clone/median them out.

That is a problem if one is trying to photograph from the same vantage point that everyone else looks at the scene from. . But if one is trying to create an image that is original, then one is usually finding vantage points that are out of the way and that nobody else knows about, and then other people being in the way is not a problem.

And if one really thinks about it, one will wonder, "why would anyone want a picture of the same scene from the same place that dozens/hundreds/thousa​nds of other people have taken pictures from?"


.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

Perhaps, but the backs of many places aren't interesting. You may be limited in the angles where the object is recognizable or looks good. Being able to get to places early AM usually helps more, and the light is usually better too, especially in summer.

Yep ... this one just OCDs me out. I don't understand why just a fraction of a degree bugs me so very, very much. But it really does.

I'm assuming this is a public place so everyone has the same rights. If you don't want anyone in front of you...then get yourself out of bed early...otherwise live with people being in your images. That's just life.

There's a saying, I recall:
"Beware of early-risers ... they want the world all to themselves."

Alternative version:
"Beware of early-risers ... they could be angry photographers."

Please see my post from earlier in the thread...:rolleyes:

Repeated so you don't have to look very far. Or if the scene matters enough to me and I have time, I just wait them out. It's just one of my quirks and I certainly don't act as a fool about it.

Or someone who is in an area for work and only has the early morning free.

Along those lines, scaffolding around an interesting object. Yeah, it needs maintenance.

I get heavily annoyed with power lines. Not just for landscapes, but portrait and other stuff too. It's like sky pollution. And when you really step back and look, how ridiculous is it that we just have wires hanging everywhere you look. You cannot escape them unless you get away from civilization, and you still run into them in the wild.

And if you live near the coast... your power lines are riddled with decorations:
