Ernest W./ aka D. A.

I checked both your photo.net portfolio and your home webpage...very impressive. I especially like your night photos. They are incredible. I am just getting started taking longer exposure shots with tripods, etc. and I greatly appreciate the encouragement you offered with your remark on one of my photos. I am a retired teacher and now have time to develop this hobby. I need to get into Philadelphia at night and take some pictures along the rivers, etc. Hope to hear from you again. Thanks.

Heil Ernest

What a great collection. I've enjoyed it immensely. Another said they had always wanted to see New Zealand and Australia, and it reminded me of how many times I've said that. Don't suppose I'll ever make it. Too attached to my dogs, to ever put them in a kennel, so keep the great shots coming. Your work is excellent. Kingston, Ontario. Canada.

Wow! You have an amazing eye and the quality of work you produce is wonderful! It just proves again that the photographer's "vision" and technical ability are much more important than an expensive and fancy camera. Great stuff!

New Zealand landscapes

Hi, Ernest,

I was very surprised when taking a look at many of your NZ landscapes: very green valleys with sheeps, mountains, small rural houses with red roofs, sea with high falls; in some facts, these are very similar to our typical landscapes here in basque country and both sites are close to be in the "far side of the world" (as "Master and Commander" says). These are full of light and nice composition and you do not have a long experience but are doing really well; I like your touch in many images. Hope to enjoy your images very long. Thanks for shrg. Ikusi arte - see you in basque language. Josemi Gondra.

Harsha Herle , March 24, 2011; 05:21 A.M.

Hi Ernest,

Splendid collection. Your collection on NZ Landscapes and Auckland are just marvelous. Thanks for sharing.

Rating given and received

Should you rethink the way you rate other photographers work and be at least as generous to others as they are to you?
Unless a photograph is offensive to your taste why give the image a rating below 4 (average) - and how is that your most given rating is 4?, why bother concentrating in rating what you consider to be mediocre or less than mediocre work when there are so many outstanding images deserving being enjoyed and praised?

Ernest Wong, CA , July 17, 2012; 07:06 A.M.

Feedback to Leo Gottfried

1) It's not a popularity contest, and the ratings have nothing to do with "generosity" or such like
2) I don't think I'm "mean" to anybody or anyone in particular, if I was the type of man that you implied I won't have many compliments or nice words on my portfolio page
3) I disagree with your comments that "at least I should rate generously as much as others do to my works...", so are u saying these ratings are actually a bribe? U give me a "5" then I must give u back no less than "5"?
4) Thanks for your comments over here, I shall leave them here for other ppl's comments...

Leo Gottfried , July 25, 2012; 11:09 P.M.

Mediocre or less

1- If so this is for you a contest of any sort?..
2- You leave "also" nice remarks and ratings but for some reason choose to focus on images that in your eyes are mediocre (4) or less. 79.81% of the ratings you give other PN members are in this area.
3- Again to point 2... look at your work. For most of the visitors it may be not worth a rating of 5 or more but they choose to leave it alone while you prefer to concentrate in rating most images with the lower end of the scale.
Now, if you wish to help the posters of these mediocre or less images, you could take some time and leave a constructive critique suggesting ways to improve these images.

Matthew Rael , January 24, 2013; 04:26 P.M.

I really liked all of your porfolio and your lanscapes are very Beautiful! Regards..
