I remember reading recently that we should not be criticizing photos because they use an idea that has "previously been done to death". Please remember there are those of us new to the forum and dp, and to whom these concepts are just delightful, and yes, even new.

Also, each photo should be judged on its own merit. Using your statement, should we exclude all the Icelandic Northern lights?

I appreciate you did make some positive comments on this picture, but your "done to death" phrase really bothers me in this forum.


He is right, though, and as long as one is not voting an image lower therefor I see nothing wrong in such a statement.

Great clarity. The fading of the border line is a little off putting. Top shot all the same.
