    Pictures

    Hey Swellinfo,

    Not trying to start an argument here or anything but...lately I've noticed the pictures that are being posted on here.... some are just plain garbage. I'm not saying that I'm a great photographer or anything and that my pics rule. But, just that I think there should be some sort of regulation. I mean moderators need to step up and reject some of the pics being uploaded. There are some really great photographers that post on this site. And their pictures just get buried in the pages by ugly shots.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    I agree. But it will be hard to draw that line on what is a good picture and not. And what if someone uploads 30 GREAT pictures... that will just bury everyone else's photos as well.

    But I have seen some pretty crappy pic's uploaded recently.

    Yeah, I also think there should be a limit per day of what you can upload.

    Just to clarify....I'm not talking about the mega pixels either...some great shots i have seen on here taken with a phone. Basically anything ugly should not be on here.

    You are right it would be tough to draw the line between a good shot or not. But, personally I think it's getting out of control.

    Isn't that what the picture rating function is for? You can select the "what's popular" link to rank photos based on most viewed, highest rated, or most commented. Even if the pictures aren't the best quality, I still enjoy viewing them to give me an idea what the surf was like in certain areas...

    Your missing the point....I said nothing about the quality. I wouldn't mind looking at someone boosting air caught on a 3.1 mp camera or phone. I just am tired of seeing pictures of closeouts.... people riding white water. ect....basically bad photography. This is a surf forum....I would like to see people surfing.

    Git-R-Done.....
