Oh dear!!! A good reason not too have two photographers. Both are massively overshooting, and missing key moments, not to mention they genuinely have no idea what they are capturing. I can't believe that people pay them!
 
This is so embarrassing to watch. My apologies from the photography industry. It's folks like this that you want to keep a paintball gun on hand. :) Videographers have done it. Photographers do it. Everyone gets a little tunnel visioned at times but damn. These two. Love the cameraerobics. So painful to watch.

I completely agree about a lack of professionalism, I just felt that they were fighting one another to catch the shots, which caused part of the problem.

It's a place called Beer, as opposed to me drinking a beer and trying to take a panoramic! :)

I've been quiet recently, but you'll have to forgive me and just enjoy this shot in the mean time. ;)

Ok people, I know that the recent dislike button deactivation on 500px.com has caused a lot of debate, don't get me wrong the like and dislike buttons are important, but, it's the feedback that you occasionally get that is essential to improving. Over the last 4/5 months I've been giving feedback to people when necessary to help improve there shots. I think it's within everyone on the sites interest to comment upon or suggest a way to improve each others images.

I'm quite an open and honest guy and I don't mind giving feedback, but I just want people to know that I would quite like feedback to help me develop, so don't be afraid to leave comments on my work.

Thanks,
Martin

This is really interesting, and it seems to be something that people, myself included need practice with...

I'd like to think the people using 500px.com would take notice of this. And if you want your photos critiqued, send me a link...

I've just worked up another shot from 2009, it's HDR, but it's very subtle, I've only used HDR to accentuate the contrast in the shot. It's a little darker than I wanted but I had to do it so the highlights were acceptable. Let me know what your thoughts are...

Thanks +Javan Ahrens. I'm probably one of the biggest dislike-ers of HDR ever, I wanted this to fit in with my style without it looking mad! :-)
