I have no problem with any people having backed up their arrogance with something substantial.
Richard Avedon, Cristiano Ronaldo, Jack Nicholson etc.
If you guys want a contest,....we can do this,....The Best Pictures of a Door Knob.
If agreed,.....Everyone post your best picture of a door knob.
Really? that seems incredibly hard to believe, you've been ranting and bad mouthing KR for so long but so far you have not "backed up" your rants "with something substantial" ... not even a single worthwhile photo.

Now you want a contest? and you want others to post their photos? but you keep running away from posting even a single photo!. Since you are new to canonrumors, you may not know but FYI most of us have already posted our photos on Canon rumors and it was not done to belittle others but to share our work with others and get constructive criticism.


Why do you feel like a mosquito?

All your post are exclusively direct personal attacks toward me,..... but their bites is less then negligible.

Why do you feel like a mosquito?


It must be the noise,...Zum! Zum!



You keep saying you want to see my pictures?!

You will get to see them in the manner I decide to show them,....not by playing weak mind games.
By now everyone knows what kind of a person you are and I think you have no worthwhile photo to post here that can "back up" your tall claims & rants, so I'm outta here. Good luck with your door knobs ;D

You all bite from different angles like a pack of wolves and wonder what's wrong with me,....like that woman at Carnegie.

Only concentrated on self.
That's how Bush Junior became president. Twice.
It seems impossible in a rational way but there are many people drunk at sounds of their own voices that lock themselves in a microcosmos of their own thoughts and anything contrary to what they want to hear just hits  a mental block and falls to the ground.

Tell me one good piece of anything that has been written here by you guys except constant attacks.


You should keep anyone at a safe distance from your family.
It is a mad world.


Free gift for you haters,....

Go to Phlearn.com,...great elegant site with lots of teaching and free advice,.....and compare that with Rockwell.

Learn class. Nobody begs for money.

So much talk of pics of a doorknob and still no pics ... So I thought I'd post one of mine. This doorknob is important to me bcause it belongs to the one person whom I was mortally afraid of when I was young ... My headmaster at school before whom I used to be hauled up for having broken some rule. I used to stare at the doorknob whole waiting outside his room till that dreaded voice said "come in"... I met him after considerable time this past November and while taking his leave, I clicked this on my way out much to his surprise ...

I like it,....The story makes it better.
Nice red color with just enough blue.


I will still have to go do one,...I got no door knobs in my arsenal.
My camera will be back Tuesday so I will return with one.

Mad, bad and dangerous to know.

Whatever the online equivalent of crossing the road and getting your kids to look away is, do that.

I wouldn't bother attempting to involve the moderators, that just gives these creeps some sense of vindication, martyrdom, or even just the attention they crave.

Some meandering thoughts of an old man.... ;)

1) equipment: When I started dating my future wife over 40 years ago, neither of us owned a camera. All I could do was take a couple of those tiny photo booth shots (4 for a dollar) like in the French movie Amelie. Those are still my favorite photos of her (I have one framed on my wall). I only wish now that I had taken a few more back then.

2)language: @Magnardo..Your English is much better than my Latvian :) In fact, I only speak one language and sometimes not even that very well. I really admire anyone who can speak more than one language.

3)Criticism (negative harsh vicious etc): We all live in glass houses...let whoever is without sin cast the first stone. Rodney King "Can't we all just get along?"

This doorknob is important to me

Nice doorknob :-) and interesting story, actually I have some shots like this myself - it's just my point that you don't need a 63 point af system to take it or an expensive L prime for this resolution (a 50/1.8 would do).

I think we have plumbed the bottom of the Ken Rockwell topic.... perhaps we can stop now? :)

All KR topics end this way, but it's like like a train wreck, hard to look away :-p

...well..the topic is shallow enough that it should only have been one page..tell ya what...why don't we all use at least $10,000.00 of photo equipment to post some really bad snapshots of our kids here, in honor of Ken and then call it a day?

No chance I'm posting "bad" shots of my kids. I would however, happily shoot the lens boxes, pump up the saturation like crazy and post the pics, all in KR's ... Well ... Honor!

Much ado about nothing as usual.

I'll venture to fill in again with you Paul.

This guy is plain rude and that has nothing to do with not being a native speaker, many of us on this forum are.

I'm out of this thread and hope to not encounter some of the posters in it ever again. This forum should be for a (of course vivid) but still civilized discussion about things pertaining photography. I'd never measure myself against anybody's photos and would never ever challenge someone on taking photos.

Me neither, and the reason I'm never posting any "good" shots in discussion threads is that imho if someone has taken a couple of good pictures it doesn't make his/her reasoning any better or his/her opinion more valid, it just muddies the water. A good reason to post shots is to demonstrate problems or show the effect of some lens/lighting/... gear though.

well, this thread was doomed from the start. i've been watching it simply out of curiosity at the ferver it would reach. some of the tones taken were pretty disappointing and not indicative of what i have experienced on this site. to that point....

regardless of any CR members interests or experience level, i have come to enjoy the mostly good natured exchange of ideas, opinions, and experiences with different types of gear. i certainly expect this thread to be a blip on the radar of what i think is a pretty diverse and respectful online community.

what i have noticed is that there seems to sometimes be different perspectives between pros earning a living through photography and enthusiasts just enjoying photography. there is certainly no right or wrong but it seems that sometimes when those perspectives cross, context is lost in the shuffle.

i personally fall into the camp of thinking Ken Rockwell is a clown and i personally am underwhelmed by his work. i do not think anyone who enjoys Ken or learns something from his site is "stupid" or somehow below me in anyway. that would just be nonsense. i would caution those that follow Rockwell that there is a great deal of learning, experience, and enjoyment beyond his musings and to actively seek out other sources so that his thoughts don't become gospel. but this is true of anyone....any single source of information or inspiration can be troublesome in the long run.

i think what everyone can agree upon is that photography is simply alot of fun and very rewarding at all levels of experience. no one should ever feel hesitant to post images that they have done on this site for any reason. i think the majority of the members here truly enjoy seeing shots from everyone regardless of their skill level. i know i do...i only wish i could see more of all of your work.

that being said, i will soon be adding my website to my profile (as it is in the process of being updated...sorely overdue) and welcome all to visit it and critique away! i always felt the worst thing that someone could say about my work was nothing....i would much rather prefer that someone hated it or loved it. at least that way i could get some growth from the experience. indifference gives no satisfaction!
