Photo critique Here is where you can display your images and seek the comment, advice and, maybe, constructive critique of your work. Only post your images here if you are happy for frank feedback. If in doubt, use the beginners board instead. Only post your comments here if you feel you can make a constructive and polite contribution in response to what is, for some, a leap of faith in exposing their work to your critical comment.

Exclamation Censored on FaceBook - Contains Nudity



I was quite pleased with this composite picture, as it won a 1st place in a DPI competition. I posted it on a Photographic group page on FaceBook and it was reported and removed

Is it really that bad

Oh, for goodness sake! Facebook should be more concerned with tackling bullying and grooming.

Re: Censored on FaceBook - Contains Nudity

Who is the most weird, Facebook censorship guy or the strange individual who was so incensed that they complained about this cool and in no way provocative image?

Obviously an artistic pose which doesn't warrant censorship.

Just joking Graham. It's very, very good.

I use FB almost exclusively for links with other photographers through "pages".

I had no idea of what was going on in the wider world of FB untill you mentioned it here and then this morning it made the BBC News.

I was genuinely shocked at what I heard.

Re: Censored on FaceBook - Contains Nudity

Graham, bullying and trolling happens on some forums too, but we root it out before it gets out of hand. I think the problem with Facebook is that it is so big its detail management is slow to react to issues like this. Thankfully, I believe it is very rare and I have never experienced it.

Re: Censored on FaceBook - Contains Nudity

A very well deserved first place - and Facebook? Like you, I use pages and have a quick scroll down my personal page but there's an awful load of tosh on there.

I'll probably be banned from the site

At least here, images are considered for what they are, rather than what they contain.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys, they truly are appreciated.

Banned? Really? Surely not!

That's very annoying. However, you already have excellent professional websites and contacts so you may be better off without Facebook, especially if there's someone there with a grudge, someone who was intent on hassling you. If you're no longer there they'll just have to target someone else.

I don't use Facebook, never have and never will but I have to admit I'm not surprised by some of the things that happen there as the .net has changed considerably since I first went online in 1997.

Here's another report from today's DM. Another example of immaturity to be found in FB.

I had a huge personal website + forum from 1998 - 2004 but eventually had no other option than to remove it when certain individuals began tracking me and other members of my family. It started to cause all sorts of problems in 2003/4 so I decided it just wasn't worth the hassle.
