pointing out the failings of others. Except, of course, when others
go out of their way to screw up. Then, it's fair game.
Anno. I'll give you a prize if you can figure out the name of
this site. Ah, where to begin? Normally, any sound on a site drives
me crazy. However, something about this guy's plopping that sounds
cool. The front page? I'm still trying to figure it out. Plus, it
keeps on wanting to download the Japanese text support--though I
suppose that's not his fault. Why would I gripe about all this stuff
and still have this link? Well, because this guy is a very good
photographer. His slide shows are worth watching. He's done some
UW soft focus too. In my opinion, usually that only works on subjects
with nice breasts, but he makes it work.
Cole. Want to see a terribly designed site with some great marine
mammal photography, well check this out. Password protected links
and all thumbnails with dead links ruin a chance to really showcase
some excellent work.
Cooluris Photography. Very nice, clean site design with great
photography. Some nice diver/kelp, California cold water, and commercial
marine shots. Too bad all the shot have a "JC" emblazoned
across the them, "protecting" them from copyright thieves
but also preventing anyone from appreciating the photo underneath.
I understand the need to protect your work, but geez.
Go to the "Contest
Winners" gallery and see for yourself. Perhaps the worst
scans of award winning photos I've ever seen. OK, call me ungrateful.
and Shadows.com. Shamelessly self-aggrandizing. He breaks every
rule he holds sacred. It's a wonder this guy can sleep at night.
Wildlife Photography. What would happen if you had a lot of
really cool photos of sharks, rays, fish, many of them unusual,
and decided to create a website that showcased them. Well, you would
say good idea. How about going to the trouble of making that site,
again to show off your photography, and then have all of your pictures
display very small. What a waste of great photography.
