      I have to say, I agree with you Garrie, this place is just the best. I know it's an Olympus support forum, but it matters not what you have really, and I rarely see anyone bashing Canon or Nikon just for the sake of it.

      I'd also strongly urge anyone here to read the latest 'Of interest to E5 owners' thread. It pitches the E-5 on a par, and better in some areas than... check this... the D700!

        I noticed that thread, looks superb. I so hope my works bonus in March is enough to cover a E5

        I dare you to post that as your "return" thread?

        I've just put some pics up for the first time in ages, I'll see what response I get, the shots aren't anything great mind, only got a few replies on here.

                Looks like your post, amogst others, has been removed by Matty as he sanitized the thread in the time honoured TP tradition.

                John's post was deemed to be "provocative nonsense" by Matty, yet recently this post in a critique thread was considered OK:-

                  Yep, this is a post by none other than Zuiko's friend and mine... Mr Arkady - photographer extraordinaire, and self confessed god of all things photographic.

                  This guy can get away with anything; he is rude, arrogant, always offensive and... guess what... uses a few Nikon D3's.

                  In fact, this thread is a great example of how the place is allowed to run.

                    Hmm, I'm sorely tempted to register there and do a bit of trolling and set traps for the idiots!

                      I think John deserves a special award, so I made him this.

                          I'd just like to point out that in my opinion Arkady's "eye gouging" post was well deserved, appropriate in the context and very funny. in fact that whole thread is a trainwreck of dummy-spitting entertainment and can't be taken as an example of the norm (boring, "great shot" drones) at TP.

                          As for trolling, the OP plainly admits that was his intention;

                          In other words trolling.

                            Sorry, Ulfric, but I'm afraid I disagree with you on this occasion. Commentators on the thread had every right to trash the picture but IMO Arkady's comments were distasteful and personal, rather than objective about the photograph.

                            The OP is a uni photography student who was hoping to use his picture to prompt a debate

                            What I was interested in was sparking a debate on how photography works conceptually. Which despite not posting the best photo as an example I've found it pretty handy in starting discussions that I've found really interesting....


                            Just my opinion, of course, but I'd hardly call that trolling. In fact, I'd say that it was an attempt by Andrew to save face, given the (desrvedly) unanimous critisism of his picture. Ironically, I'd already been accused myself of trolling on the thread, by Arkady, when in fact I was one of the first to reply and try to offer some constructive debate.
