»  Praise Worthy!
Mt. Helix Park is truly the Crown Jewel" of San Diego East County. (Mount Helix was named after a snail in the area, the Helix aspersa). From its towering height, visitors enjoy breathtaking panoramic views.

This is what the subject of my photo is viewing while giving praise to God.

Constructed in 1925 and dedicated in 1929 for Public enjoyment and use, Mt. Helix Park has long been a public favorite for outings, weddings, musical shows, celebrations, and of course, for the location of exhilarating Easter Sunrise Services.

As was the case for Mary Yawkey, the wonderful lady for whom Mt. Helix Park was built as a memorial, many people visit the Park to seek solace and spiritual uplifting.

"Extremely well done, I can tell you put some real work into this. I might use this in an anti-christian series to show the hippocracy of christianity and the many who make money off of such a large deception"

"Very nice. Thank you! I will be using it for a slideshow for special music in church. I wanted to include a variety of people, so I really appreciate having access to an image that includes a man in a suit giving praise. It's not what you wear, but what's in your heart, right? I love the strong stone foundation, the white cross, and the blue cloudy sky. Thanks again!"

"This comment is for the member who rated my photo a "5" (my only other rating was a 10). I'm sorry, but this was just not appreciated (I believe you also rated at least one, or more, of my other photos the same). I am a person that has spent many hours researching the best camera in my price range. This includes downloading raw images and opening them up in Photoshop to compare. Unfortunately, at the time I bought my camera (Canon Digital Rebel XT) I could not afford the prime lenses, so I am saddled with after-market (Sigma) lenses (and yes, I have taken enough photos to know their limitations - and I am saving up my pennies for the prime lenses). This particular photo required a trip to the top of Mt. Helix (Mt. Helix is a 2 hour round trip for me). It also required that I spent a fair amount of time freezing my butt off in 20 - 50 mph winds to wait for the sun to clear the clouds so I could get proper lighting (shoot at 100 ISO). This also required a subject that was willing to freeze his butt off while waiting for me to take the shot. Yes, I know the composition is not perfect. And yes, I could have cropped the image prior to uploading, but I thought (maybe erroneously) that whoever downloaded the image would appreciate having control over the cropping (I thought this, because I would really like to be able to have control over the cropping of my images). Whenever I look at other member's photos, I look for the ones that I like the most and give them a thoughtful comment and a rating of either "9" or "10". That's just me. I sincerely want to be a positive influence on other photographers. I don't make simple comments like "great shot" (even though I may feel that way), I actually put some thought into each and every comment that I make. In my own way, by making comments (and ratings) I hope that I am contributing to the photographers knowledge base, self worth, and feelings about the photo they took. I guess I am also more interested in encouraging excellence (as I see it), than criticizing someone's photo because I don't happen to like it (or for some technical reason). I might be wrong. I just don't believe I have the right to criticize someone else's work unless I have "walked a mile in their moccasins" (or at least until I have gone to the top of Mt. Helix with them). From now on, I believe I will have a strong tendency to ignore the ratings and look more closely at the number of downloads as an indication of the quality of a photo (some of my lowest rated photos have been downloaded the most - some were shot using a camera that produces a lot of noise [grain] at high ISOs - thus the reason for all of my research and the reason why I chose a camera that is well known for producing low noise images at high ISOs). What this means is that (for my own personal reasons), you (as a member) would have to wait maybe forever for me to rate your photo a "5", I just don't believe this to be very positive and I don't believe it serves any useful purpose. However, I would defend to the death you right to make this rating only if you decide to leave a comment as to why you rated it that low (and if your reason was legitimate). I believe it is more positive to just not rate a photo that you believe to be bad than to give it a "5" rating. If anyone else believes the same, just let me know (comments are welcome)."
