Title: Best photo you came acroos on any of the agencies
Post by: Equalizer on October 14, 2017, 14:38
After reading the topic Worst Photo which I feel insults or embarrasses the artist I want to 'Equalize' the negative topic with the 'Best Photo' --

Here is one that I feel is a great photo! Helping others in need.

Really? Is it one of yours?

Looking at the similar images I see there are no fewer than three identical shots where it seems all the contributor did was change the white balance and resubmit.

At best it's a typical stock photo, at worst it's an abuse of the agency to submit the same shot over and over with slight variations in color.

Yeah, wonder why those duplicates even get through? Guess it's the new norm at SS.

It's a bit bland. One of them could wear a tie-die shirt or something, to spice it up a bit.
