¿REALMENTE OS GUSTA ESTA FOTO?

Esta foto ni tan siquiera cumple con las bases del concurso.

Se supone (según el enunciado del premio) que Heritage debe comprender Fotos que evocan emociones o recuerdos del pasado, especialmente de tu lugar de origen. Puede ser cualquier cosa relacionada con la historia o la herencia cultural de un lugar. En buena lógica, todo lo que no sea arte, historia o cultura de un lugar deberían quedar excluidos. Aceptaría lugares o paisajes donde se libraron batallas o revueltas, se firmaron tratados, se hicieron descubrimientos u organizaron expediciones.... acontecimientos que cambiaron el rumbo de las comunidades afectadas.

Lo que esta foto refleja es simplemente la calle de una urbanización o nucleo urbano. Por otra parte, la composición de la foto deja mucho que desear: las líneas de la perspectiva conducen al ojo del que mira hacia el centro de la toma, el reparto de masas es completamente simétrico, la luz es deficiente, la dimensión del color es sumamente pobre, las sombras ahogan la escena, la posición central del sol distrae la atención del espectador..... todo ello, entre otras cosas, conforman una fotografía exclusivamente destinada a las últimas páginas del álbum familiar de su creador.

Adrian si lees las nuevas bases de Panoramio para concursar está prohibido el spam, corriendo el riesgo que te borren la cuenta. Leelas, en las bases del concurso. Spam es decir siempre lo mismo n veces con la escusa de meter publicidad de tus fotos, incluso diciendo que esta foto, fruto del spam, es "Beautiful". Si alguien me puede explicar que tiene de bueno...

I wanna also to user Guía arquitectura that I always accept constructive criticism and inform that for me the photo fits to the Heritage Category of the contest simply because the green house on the right side of the photo is the house where I live for more than 12 year now. Is it enough for you to "evoke emotions or memories of the past, especially your hometown/motherland" like we read on the english version of the panoramio contest site? You can see my house on the map beside the photo and you're invited to visit me when you travel to Brazil.

Second: You're right that I made a mistake of not to send the original photo to the site so you cannot see EXIF information. But I afirm that I took this shot with my own digital camera and the only edition I made was reduce the size of it. But I´m sure it's not a crime here, there are lots of prized huge edited photos.

Sorry that I can't answer in spanish.

Greetings from Brazil.

R & F Faraon on May 12, 2009

To the user Crise Marín de Espinosa, that definitively was not intent to make a "constructive criticism", I just can think you're jealous!.

Nothing more to say.

R & F Faraon on May 12, 2009

Thank you everybody for your kind comments and congratulations!

Obrigado ainda aos brasileiros que também me mandaram felicitações.

Jealous?

I got the second prize (Heritage) in February. If you visit the awards in February, you can see it. I won the prize with a superb picture. Nobody discussed my picture. Now you have reason to be jealous.

Guia NO Views thanks on May 13, 2009

"evoke emotions or memories of the past, especially your hometown/motherland": motherland isn't mother's house; hometown isn't home in your town. All the world understand the meaning of the word "Heritage".

I agree with the critic of Crise and Yofillol I don't see jealous attitude, it is a constructive critic about quality of your picture and a critic to Panoramio to accept this picture in Heritage cathegory. When the river sounds...

R & F Faraon on May 14, 2009

Thank you very much Topseee, Sefa and Salehyar for your kind words. You make me smile!
