No, You do not get it VSJ. I have looked at your photos and many are great. You have skills. That is why I challenged you. Apparently many people are challenged by the word poop. So be it. Too many people post on this site and do not know what they are doing. This is not you. Again, I have looked at your photos and you have skills. What I am encouraging you to do is use this resource to ask advice from people that have been there and get their recommendations for what lens in what location. Be specific, not so broad. Use this resource for finding out were to go specifically (not generally), time of day, etc. For all of the people that feel I am being rude, so be it. I have your attention and my message is still there. As a professional photographer, I always want to know when, where, when and how. I did not mean to insult you personally, just the construct of your OP. Take your skills, seek advise and have a great time. You insulted me. You perceived I insulted you. Other people feel the need to weigh in, but the bottom line is knowing where to be, when to be there and what to have. Accept my apologies if you were offended, but use this forum for what is has to offer. For all of you others that have decided that you should pile on me, so be it. I actually like his photos. VSJ I also got you attention, and poop is really not that bad of a word in the big scheme of things.
Ok. I got what you wanted to say but you didn't have to say it that way. Besides, from what I know, I'm mainly getting reply from people who have been there or near the vicinity. Also, I didn't insult you in any way. I just straight away said that your comments are offensive. I even speculated that you might just been having a bad day.
I'm sorry if the topic seems too general. Hmmm... If I just put on the focal lengths and not the brand and just presented what kind of photography I am on, you're comments wouldn't be warranted. Am I right? Moving on, if you read on what others replied on this thread, you'll see that it's just an honest conversation regarding what to bring to Krabi and not about bragging gears or anything. Providing incomplete data isn't an offense right?
Just an honest advice, next time, if you feel that threads like these are idiotic then it might be better to just reserve your comments on what you think are non-idiotic ones. If you really feel like you have to say anything, giving respect while saying something will also make your message clear. We always say here, "Each to his own". Right? Culture-wise, if comparing this thread to asking what to bring while pooping seems not so offensive to you, I suggest you also take into account what other might think regarding your comment. More so, being a professional photographer, I think we are all responsible to whatever we say even in forums (even in jest). That is what being a "professional" means after all.
