    I think your reaction is a bit extreme, and I hardly think my comment offended these "millions" of users. If 'they' are true "artists" then surely they don't need the ratification of others. Well that is how I feel about my deviantART work anyway.

    It was a JOKE, don't be so thin-skinned and sensitive, and to call it a "personal attack" is just daft.

    I mean someone posted a derogatory comment about Lomography, but did I get offended? NO, because what would be the point. I think this thread should be taken in good humour, and people like YOU should chillax a bit and not take it so seriously.

    ps: And no of course I don't think everything on deviantART is pretenious, this thread just reminded me of a magazine article I read recently which heavily voiced the opinion that "those that can't use deviantART".

    ISO Sensitivity - Isolated Social Oxymoron; an attempt of hilarity in an OFF TOPIC internet forum and ruffling someone's feathers followed by a direct attack by the 'offended', followed by a rebuff from the originator of the first comment. The end result usually highjacks the thread. See Sarcasm.


    Can we get on with it?

    Yeah. Besides, Valium works much better for In-Body Stabilization :)

    Adobe RGB: What you use when you want your shots to look like they're made out of clay.

    Depth of Field Preview: Device that tells you how deep the field of grass, hay, or flowers is you're about to take a photo of. Measures from fence to fence, usually in meters (Pentax reads in feet).

    Exposure Bracketing: When taking a shot of a model, shows you what she would look like without a shirt on and also with a coat on. Can be adjusted to remove bra/add parka, etc.

    Photoshop: When you mess up a photo really bad, this is where you go to buy one you can call your own.
