Hi! Someone mentioned in another thread that they were glad to have been given a break from the usual ratings complaints that are posted here and given something else to discuss. SOOOOO that got my mind "To thinkin'" and I thought I'd pose a question. We all rate photos and sometimes it's on quality of the photo and if the photo is origial and interesting. However there are times I'm sure that we rate photos based on our personal taste and likes and dislikes...(Ok here's the question finally!) When you come to photo.net what type of photos do you enjoy viewing. OR what types of photos really turn you off? Why? Also when you come across photos that are not pleasing to you..do you rate them or do you skip? Ok so I'll start...I love to look at photos with LOTS of color! So pictures from India and the Asian countries catch my eye first. I also like nature. Ecspecially skies and weather photos. Children usually grab my attention to. What I don't like...Well obviously as many of you know. Photographs of dead people ecspecially children and to be honest. I'm not too crazy about really "dark" photography. I enjoy looking at tasteful nudes but sometimes I look and I'm shocked about how the degree of "tasteful" can vary! LOL If I run across photos that are not appealing to me because of subject matter...I just skip them. I realize that it isn't because they are of poor quality or not origianl..It's because I personally don't care for the style. So I don't rate. YOUR TURN!
