My bed you might see three things
High heels my pills and hoes in G strings
I see things through my pimpin glasses
Cheesy macaroni teaching pimpin classes
I dips and mashes, Mercedes Benzes
Might wear stunnas without the lenses
Why don't you offer something other than you disappointment next time?
I like putting these contests on for you guys. I think its fun. But I feel like nowadays, all I hear is how shitty the submissions are. If you guys have such a high opinion, how about stepping up and offering something other than a negative voice? You take the fun out of it and quite frankly, I've enjoyed it less and less because I feel this happening slowly over time. Would you like to see the contest just go away, since it clearly doesn't live up to your expectations? Cause I don't mind gaining those minutes back. These are ametuer photographers, doing it for fun. And if you don't offer anything other than "yikes" or constructive ways they can improve, why pay attention to the contest? You're not helping it, or me.
If you have something to say, make sure you back it up.
agreed the trash talking of submissions irks me as well. Constructive criticism is ok even pointing out things you think could be better, but to just state that all the submissions suck is way out of line.
RIP CJT 3/20/74-06/27/01 Never hold back your feelings cause you may never talk to that person again.
RIP MPT 6/2/79-5/22/08 I will forever ski with you by my side.
it destroys the fun of the contest. This is a mod-run amateur contest on a forum. These aren't going to be the absolute best of the best photos ever taken. Advice on how the photographers can get better is good. Saying they are bad is not.
I say keep it up Ashley, I enjoy the photos and contests, and I think a lot more members do too, whether or not they participate.
thank you. Despite, i know you know a lot about photography and such, but like Ashley said, how about some photos to back it up or at least some constructive criticism... keep the negativity to a minimum dawg

Joy is the response of a lover receiving what he loves. This is the joy we feel when skiing powder... This overflowing gratitude is what produces the absolutely stupid, silly grins that we always flash at one another at the bottom of a powder run. We all agree that we never see these grins anywhere else in life.
