The Art Theft Discussion… 

15 deviants said In case of clear art theft a lawyer should fight for your rights and charge money for that art theft
5 deviants said For every download or copy of copyright protected art in the internet should be paid a little amount of money
3 deviants said It's just a worse of time to fight for your copyrights in the internet.
2 deviants said Other - please comment
No deviants said Internet is absolute no place for any copyright protections. Everything has to be free.

Best of May 2015 Poll Winner Update

Journal Entry: Tue Jun 2, 2015, 11:22 AM
Congrats to the winner of this month's poll:  :icondimensionseven:DimensionSeven with this excellent image:

Pisa IR by DimensionSeven.

Welcome to :iconr72:'s Best of May Feature!

The end of May has come, (and gone by a couple days), so it's past time for our monthly "Best Of" feature.  Winter can be a slow time for IR photography with all the leaves gone away, but the leaves have returned and so have the submissions.  We've had an explosion of submissions this month and the best of poll will be very competitive.

It wasn't all about the foliage, we also had some great submissions of people:

And some very nice shots of infrared animals:

Many of the best shots are when the works of nature are captured along with the works of man:

General Informations - Rules for r72 Group

New members are welcomed!

Members submit their genuine infrared photographs to our submission folder, which is named after the current month. The submission limit is ten (10!) pictures per week. Photographs which are accepted by the admins in a voting process are later moved to the appropriate gallery folders (e.g. "Magic Trees").

Please indicate in the description of the deviation what ir technique you used - e.g. filter, converted camera, other.

Reasons for declining a submission include:
- Bad lighting conditions
- Over- or underexposures
- Lack of sharpness
- Poor compositions
- Disturbing watermarks (e.g. big dA watermark, or watermark in center of image)
- Non-infrared images or a non infrared "feeling" in the pictures

By declining an image we do not want to discourage your work or your future submissions. Please spend time in our galleries and feel free to ask questions about techniques used to achieve images that impress you.

The making of infrared photos you can find in our tutorial gallery folder -->>… and in gilad's journal -->>… .

After one of my infrared photographs was chosen to be a Daily Deviation (completely amazing!!), I wanted to say a big thanks to the group and admin- it is seeing the images here which has inspired me (and still does!)
Thanks again! 
 I salute you!

That's wonderful news!  Well deserved and big congratulations!.

867 members, 1.143 watchers - support tends to zero... :-(
Argolith Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2015  Hobbyist Photographer
It is my perception that we are getting less feedback on polls and journals than we used to. There's still a constant stream of submissions, but the majority of them are coming from a small number of people. I'm not complaining, but if anyone has suggestions on how to improve the participation of our members, please let me know.

I have no clue... People seem to be bored...
MichiLauke Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2015   Photographer
Hast du Verbesserungsvorschläge, neue Ideen oder willst du gar die Admin-Founder-Position übernehmen, um die Sache anzukurbeln?

Ich habe eine ganz andere Wahrnehmung. Die vielen neuen IR-Bilder sprechen eine andere Sprache. Ist es nicht viel mehr deine Unzufriedenheit über die allgemeine künstlerische Qualität, die du ja immer wieder äußerst, die deine negative Wahrnehmung ( tends to zero... :-( (Sad)) beeinflusst oder gar trübt?

Schau Dir die Anzahl der Mitglieder/Beobachter an und die daraus resultierenden Kommentare/Favs für die Beiträge aller, nicht nur meiner! Warum Posten Menschen in einer Gruppe?!?
