    But Paulie, I have a wonderful carbon print (tons of relief) that is a detail study of tree roots...
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Turn offs
    Photographers with the attitude that if you do not love their image, then there is something wrong with you.
    Images that seem to have no point, except to dirty up perfectly good paper and film.

    Turn ons
    Any image that makes me feel that I am seeing what the photographer saw in his/her mind the moment they released the shutter. No matter how many times I have seen that type of image done before.

    I have a few more turn offs to add, some that surprisingly have not been mentioned yet:
    -Rusted cars, trucks, tractors, motorcycles, bicycles, boilers, metal drums, gears, etc., in a grassy or wheat field. These pictures are all composed in the same way and have never been interesting, regardless how "perfect" the rust looks. There's a reason why those things are out in the field - because they're crap. Stop photographing it please.
    -Waterfalls - yes, why don't we all do long exposure shots so the water looks boringly smooth?
    -Wooded streams - desktop wallpaper material.

    Double the heinous points if it is done in HDR (I've given up waiting for superman on that), or if it appears in a photography magazine as an advertisement or lens test (as if the pictures aren't already)

    hating on something because it's not what you do; some APUGers are all too good at that.

    Great artists respect tradition even though they may not embrace it for themselves.
    A rock pile ceases to be a rock pile the moment a single man contemplates it, bearing within him the image of a cathedral.

    I don't think "great artists" do any one thing universally.

    Something odd about dissing traditionalists on APUG...
