You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours!

Published February 20th, 2012

I am astounded by the lack of quality of some shots that make the popular page on a daily basis. I am not one to friend people just to garnish votes for a photo.

I will vote for shots I consider worthy of voting or commenting but I refuse to join the I scratch your back and you scratch mine popularity party.

People voting for trash photos are actually doing the photographer a dis-service. Giving them a false impression that they have managed to create a photographic wonder when in fact the shot is so so at best.

Some of the shots that make the popular list I would actually not post for public viewing.

Maybe there should be a panel to judge what's worthy for front page and what don't make the grade?

I might add that I am far from a great or even good photographer but I know a good photo when I see on.
