Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) entries
Posted By: Buddha Jones, 12-27-2007, 11:50 AM

Hello all! I am going to make this a sticky post in hopes that I can get all of you who have submitted pictures to the Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) and have had them accepted please post a couple of them here and please link back to your gallery so we can see your work. We have so many incredible photogs on this site I am curious to see what Pentax considers your best work.

Thanks!

One more approval - the first approval of a shot on Lensbaby Composer Pro + Double Glass. It also became a popular at 500px.

"Tree and summer herbs"

I was under the impression that this thread was a celebration of PPG, so why go out of your way to dis it? I think you need to get a little thicker hide, not everyone is going to think your work is that of a genius. I have had 13 rejections and some of them are my most favorite ones - did I feel bad? Yup sure did - did I give up - Nope - I just used them for other purposes.

Also - just what is your criteria for a "good" photo? You should be able to articulate something? For example - here is a set of criteria that I try --- note the word try --- to use when looking at others work. I also try to use it when looking at my work - but I can not critique my own stuff all that well.
12 Elements of a Merit Image - Professional Photographers of America, Inc.

Don't take this so personal, I looked at your gallery here and while they are not bad - just what makes them unique. I looked and thought - Oh, another set of head shots.

Edit: Your tag line "Don't be so humble, your not that great." - maybe you should tell this to the guy who is looking back at you in the mirror.

The Elitist - formerly known as PDL
The link that you supplied for the 12 elements of a merit image is moved to here:
12 Elements of a Merit Image | PPA
and NYpHoToGraphEr, I looked at your galleries and evaluated them against the criteria of a merit image. I am a total amateur and even I can see that your stuff is lacking. I would like to submit my stuff too but I fully expect to be rejected. I will still do it just for the fun of it. Look around this site. My God, there are so many truly great photographers here and more than a few ordinary ones.

Another one from a photo-session of two professional dancers on the roof, shot with combined light One of them is also an alpinist who climbed all peaks higher than 7km except one. By the way the image was popular at 500px community.
