flower girl

Working on some special request filter stuff. Not really my thing, the very softened portraits, but people really seem to want them. I must admit, it's purty.

    I usually dislike these kind of over romantic kid's portraits, but with your trained eye and talented finishing touches Sara, this one is fabulous!

    Hope your photos sales are doing as well as your images!

    good lord, carf. bolds, all caps *and* a photo? i know your cause is good, but good grief, this is ridiculous.

    sorry. i know it's not my photo stream, but still.

    Sorry if you find my stuff disturbing emdot. I can take a "delete me" without causing a big fuss. The amount of positive feedback on those links is far greater than the negativity, so I leave it up to the pool owner if they like or not.
    I suppose we just have to face the fact that one cannot please everyone and to tell you the truth, I don't aim to! My work with these streetkids is far more important than trying to keep an upturned world happy all the time.
    Thanks for caring about Sara's wonderful photostream though!

    carf... noone is underestimating your work with children. we commend it. bravo!

    however, i agree with emdot and think your method (all bold words and a picture) for spammin a VERY popular stream is a bit much and VERY self-promoting. personally, this is one of my most fave pics of saras and i find this type of comment ot be distracting from what is otherwise one amazing composition.

    ps - sara, feel free to delete as necessary. sorry for the diversion.
  • Christine 9y

    i agree with carf, some thing are worth getting in folks' faces about..
  • emdot 9y

    (sorry for highjacking the comments, sara; feel free to delete my comments)

    i made a big deal about the obnoxiousness of deleteme as well.

    carf, i want to reiterate that i understand your cause is a good one. i have faved photos from your stream. but all that shouting (in the form of bolds, all caps, etc.) actually takes power away from your message.

    my .02. mileage may vary.

    apologies again to sara.
  • CHILDREN AT RISK FOUNDATION - Brazil 9y

    Once again Sara, a wonderful photo, but sorry if the way I connect people to our pages is found distracting for some of your visitors. I think your photos are far better than anything I can produce and nothing I do would compete with them or distract from them.

    If I hadn't received so many positive comments from people about finding us through these links (reminding everyone that Flickr is now a "jungle" with one million members and near 100 million images and thousands of groups, where it's difficult to find one's way around and where many of us find such info. useful).

    I belong to the group of people on Flickr who appreciate being linked up to something worthwhile, and as I too find that one has to speak up loud these days in such a heavy jungle, I will happily continue to leave it up to those few who wish to delete me, to do as they please with their own photostreams if they find I am distracting attention from their wonderful images. I have absolutely no problem with that.
    Do carry on your detective work emdot, I know you mean well. I will remember not to pollute your stream with any of my stuff in the future.
