Just in case you want to learn it someday...

Well, in this case this could very well be Pascal himself, and if it is, I would say it's moving forward. =)

you mean it's possibly moving forward in terms of getting the frame closer to his face? :lol:

well apart from the discussion that at least the other ones were definitely no self-portraits and if pictures like this are still art or not i must say if you've really been to all this places mentioned in the title and all you got to show is this you've missed out way too many situations and possibilities :?

i agree, first of all this has nothing to do with self portraits, no that's not him behind the mask. and if you were in so many parts of the world let me tell you; you wasted a lot of money on the trip photo-wise.

Guys seriously, if you have no interest in the guys work, dont bother taking the time out to say so. If you want to say something, then add some constructive thoughts to help the bloke improve his photography. He clearly wants to otherwise he wouldnt put in all these polls.

Everybody love everybody!

He wants to be annoying to the majority of the people here, right?
Let the majority of the people be annoying to him too then...
Fair enough in my opinion.

As Barney says:

Yeah, sure, I agree.
However, he is the black sheep here.
Can't deny it.

Menorzinho you're being out of order. Learn to respect people.

This is a photography forum and this is this artists perception of photography so he's earned my respect whether you like the picture or not.

You on the other hand have not. Have you ever even posted a picture on this forum? Have you ever even taken a picture?

If you think you have a better idea for a self portrait, why dont you let us all know?

Why dont you give Pascal some advice on how to advance his photography?

Why dont you tell us all how Menor "Ansel Adams" Inho would have improved this photo?

That's why I don't even lose my time:
Quote:
I don't think there is on this forum somebody with more self esteem and confidence than me.
I'm curious about what people think about my pictures, but it doesn't change my own perception, in any way. (Pascalriben)

My first post on this thread here was a definition of self-portrait.
As I said, just in case he wants to learn it, which will not happen according to his quote up there.
Also, face it, he doesn't even listen, all he says is:
Quote:
Thank you for your wasted words and time, sir, but I'm not gonna do that. 8)

I'm far from being the best but, dude, I'm not the only one here that thinks he... kind of... how can I say... sucks.
You are saying what you are saying because you are one of the two (the other one being the author) people that like his photos.
So, if the fight is not yours, don't fight that fight. :mrgreen:

He should be thankful.
Sometimes, people keep doing their work without having someone to tell them they are ridiculous.
People need a bottle of Truth sometimes and all these threads and polls translate his thirst.
So, I guess everybody is giving it to him.
Drink it, baby. :)

I support @menorzinho, I mean at times, well most of the time my work is crap, however, it is till what I say it is, and yes my posts can get mixed up with wrong pictures in wrong categories, but i listen to the people

epecially this one guy that catches all my mistakes
and I try my best to fix them

at one point i was asking the same question ever other week
and then people called me out


and I stopped


BY POLL 10!!!! COOOMMMONONNNNNN!

put them all in one post or something

I actually am beginning to enjoy them, more like a comedy hour

Best quote ever "An internet forum is not for the slight at heart, it is for those who can take the blunt of the ax and turn it into lumber"

don't know quite what it means but it sounds great for this situation (:

cheers

Menorzinho, stalking your post history it appears that you have only even owned a camera for less than a month!!

What do you know about photography? Show us some of your glorious work, have you even unwrapped your camera yet?
