Krispupis, I'm sorry if you felt attacked by what I said. I was mostly speaking to Cgdillan, not to you. Apparently I somehow may have gotten the two of you mixed up, perhaps I was reading a quote within a post? I don't know. Somehow my eyes got crossed with my brain!
Cgdillan, sorry if it looked like I was faulting your work ethics. I didn't mean to do that at all. I wasn't saying it was unethical. And I assume someone else referred to those shots you posted at the top as "half assed", it was not me. In fact, my whole point was that they were more than nice enough. Then you seemed to take offense to that! So it seemed like you were taking it all a bit too seriously. I mean, I don't think I could have done any better (or maybe not as well)...in the same situation...even if I had done a lot of RE on the ground, which I have not.
I really was responding to the criticisms of others, who just seemed to be raising this type of photography to an art form that I personally don't think it is, that's all I was saying. It's just my opinion. I'm sure to many of you it is a high art form. Certainly high end homes can be quite stunning.
I mean...I think of landscape photography, such as your other work, as more the aspirational high art form. I guess it kind of goes back to "beauty in the eye of the beholder". I aspire to the same art form, myself...for fun, and would also like to sell some of it sometime. You certainly live on the correct coast for it!
I was not upset with your responses at all.. I was more responding to kirispupis.. I appreciate your effort to clear the air very much though. Thank you.
