    In the mini-rant thread about camera tilt, a couple of people brought up some of my other photographic pet-peeves.

    I thought that it would be fun to see what sets all of your teeth on edge so if you have photographic pet-peeves, post post 'em up!

    My Photographic Pet-Peeves:
    - Camera Tilt
    - HDR
    - Selective Coloring
    - Over saturation
    - Sepia/other bleaching methods
    - Deliberate aging with blatantly contemporary subjects/elements
    - Tilt-shift
    - Vignetting
    - Penguins :lol:

    And with all of them, except the penguins, there is a time and a place for them! Used appropriately, they can truly MAKE a photograph.

    Maybe fake T/S... There are just some things that can only be captured properly with a T/S lens. The fake T/S, fake miniature effect can get old after a while though...

    Maternity photos in general, but more specifically, the 'hands making a heart around the belly button' and 'the name of the child in wooden blocks over the stomach' (double secret probation if the latter is done with selective color).

    Oooh. That's pretty much my only pet peeve, I think.

    I think there is a right way, and a wrong way to do selective color - and EVERYBODY does it wrong, lol.
