Image removal and review - the process

    Yes indeed! That would be an interesting exercise! Back in the day when film was the only choice it was far more expensive - the film, the cost of developing if you didn't do it yourself and if you did - the chemicals, the paper, the darkroom equipment and the sheer amount of time and effort involved. There were some dark room techniques and tricks that one could call post processing but the inital image had to be worth all the effort I guess!
  • I had a photo removed
    I had a photo removed 24 hours ago and just got a mail that explain that it was because the photo was of a pet (dog). I did not know it's not allowed (it is written in T&C) so I respect that, being the rule.
    But one wonders, there are photos of cats on TE, some people pets are pony horses, iguana etc - where does the line pass?
  • Not an unreasonable question. Broadly, if a pet is the main subject of an image then that image is likely to be removed.
  • Hello!
    I am practically a begginer on TE and just got "burned" - one of my photos sent to trash or wherever deleted pictures go. The problem with the picture seemed to be the fact that the subject posed for the picture which I willingly admitted in the note.
    Which bothers me is the fact that most of the portraits are staged (and they are great portraits, don't get me wrong!) So why aren't the rules the same for everyone?

    What we (the mods) try to do is differentiate between the situation where a person is seen and simply asked to look to the camera, and one where an opportunity to stage a photo op is seen and then the image created. For example asking somebody in ethnic dress to stand for a photo is viewed differently to an image which has been set up and posed.
    For example an image of somebody in 'ethnic dress' who has been asked to stand for a photo would be considered more favourably than one of somebody 'holding up' the Leaning Tower of Pisa. One can reasonably be considered to be 'Daily Life' when the other is obviously staged.
    I hope that helps explain.
