that was on the Ambleside side of Loughrigg Fell wasn’t it?For me it's that lake district shot taken up high looking down on a lake (the place that had a wooden stile in the forground thats now gone, cant remember the name) nothing wrong with the shot and theres some smashing ones on this forum, it's just I keep seeing the same shot taken by different people (even videos on youtube) it's everywhere you look.
I think thats the place.that was on the Ambleside side of Loughrigg Fell wasn’t it?
I think everyone has been guilty of visting a place to take exactly the same photo as someone else has. I know I have!
A few years ago I was on a workshop with a friend. It was a great experience watching and getting close to an animal we had tried to photograph in the will over the previous year. Around lunch time we swapped positions and he said to me ‘I’m glad you had a chance to get that image’. It was at that point it dawn on me that there was a ‘shot list’ at this place that every visitor was trying to get! It was ‘sit here, point camera there and get this’ type photography.
The good thing was we both learnt more about the animals behaviour that we could put into practice ourselves and get our own original photos the next year knowing that it was unlikely others would get exactly the same shot (apart from three of us shooting together).
Never be sorry for personal opinion.This thread does feel a bit like a recipe for insulting people's work!
But, while I'm here... portraits striving for the perfect bokeh. (sorry!)
I love me some Autumnal colour, it can get over done but it's probably one of the shortest windows in photography so get them in while you can. Don't worry though, the leaves are mostly gone already - roll on the ice, frost, misty winter images that will go on a bit longerOnly seasonal boredom, but Autumn colours when its just three trees with varying shades of Orange
I think most of the leaves are in my front and rear gardensNever be sorry for personal opinion.

Best thread to come up on this forum in years.....WELL DONE.Think mine would be that bloody Puffin with a gob full of Sandeels.
Is it the same one or maybe a model nailed to the cliff top
Can think of a few other candidates, but what is your least favourite?
A wise man once said "children are like farts, you can only stand your own" - I'd include most if not all photos of children, not just new borns.Newborn photos.
Apparently it's the height of fashion, if the "fashion" category of 500px is anythin to go byOoh thought of one - pointless nudity
Okay, so it's not a dress and it's indoors but... Link NSFWOther pointless nude examples include women wearing a dress that is falling down just enough for a breast to pop out while outdoors somewhere; I've seen a lot of women walking about over the decades and never has that happened
Not sure what a clichéd flower shot is to be honest. I've was looking at my LR library the other day and apart from the show jumping and cross country(equine), the vast majority of my photos are flora. Looks like I need to expand my photography vocabularyIf there's no place in this world for photographs of wild flowers, we might as well all give up.
