You've Captured the "Moment"
I hate it when people comment on your photos and they end up saying "Beautiful/Stunning, you really captured the moment there."
Um, well, what moment? The moment that my model was standing in a room posing, waiting for me to take an image of her?
I'd understand this if it was a photo of a child smiling, or the wheel of a race car flying off - you know, something that the "moment" actually is a moment in time.
Just felt like I'd rant, because I've seen too many of those comments today while browsing photos from other photographers, oddly enough, most of the time that kinda comment was left, it happened to be a nude shot. So let me understand this, the moment is when the model happens to be naked?
Arrgh... ok... get your minds out of the gutter people. If you're going to comment on a photo, at least take the time to consider what you're actually are saying.
