    I agree that critique is needed, and I would gladly give it, but if they cant accept it...then why waste time. Im just done with it...it has nothing to do with being cool. Cool is going outside without a jacket.

    (Just trying to add some levity as things were turning nasty there. For the record, I think The Traveller's response to Chiller was mean spirited and unwarranted. Traveller's avatar is misleading, as he sure isn't any Mother Teresa!)

    * Hobby photographers and amateurs that take photography way too seriously.
    * Professional photographers that don't take photography seriously enough
    * Photographers who can't see past the other photographer's camera bag.

    I have only one pet peeve:

    Overly sharpened black and white photos of the homeless.

    Remember we are all entitled to our own opinion. What are your pet peeves won't be mine.
    That is what makes things interesting.

    Everyone has tastes and they are not the same.

    My pet peeve?

    Tilted shots. I feel like I need to hang on to something when I view the photo.

    This has sort of been bugging me because of the "tilt" thread, and also the numerous threads we see complaining about HDR and the like:

    -Overuse of any technique until it becomes a gimmick and loses all it's value and becomes a trend and develops a stigma.
    -People further stigmatizing said technique by complaining about it profusely.

    Also:

    -People who are constantly trying to sell their photo's, regardless of their quality. Especially when people starting doing it with their first camera and put the cart way before the horse.
    -People doing photographic work through craigslist for a pittance and flooding the market with garbage. I understand you have to learn somewhere, but advertising on craigslist and selling people bad photos is bad for the whole industry.
    -The standard overused subjects (bridges, homeless people, pets and the like)

    There are numerous others that I can't think of at the moment.
