I quite like this picture. I was slightly surprised to find it in the DDs but now that I take another look at it, I really like the blurry, and grainy motion in the background and how the tiny gold fish is more prominent. Actually, more than like it, I love it! Congrats.

Blur magic. I see ppl complain about the Tech vs the Vision. I'm sorry but I don't see any vision or concept in this..I mean after you see surreal you see surreal It needs so much more. It looks like a photoshop fish pasted into a trashy tree. It's obvious the quality of DD's is growing dim. I mean I understand a DD doesn't have too be a "God" picture but still I see far better things in their gallery then this that deserves a place.

It's an analog photo and there's probably no copying and pasting involved in the creative process. This DD was given for the concept, because this artist was able to see something special that would be overlooked by most other people.

Apart from that: How about suggesting DDs instead of just complaining that the "quality of DDs is growing dim"? :)

Iv'e tried many times with no result, I have the right to complain completely. If they actually took my advice I would care, this DD is junk and it's my opinion.

What "I" would like? Well I could go on and on but perhaps DA should have a poll for what they want too see in their DD's when it comes too that field of art. There's over a mil ppl on this site I don't think one voice matters

Psh. I've been barking up that tree for awhile now, all to receive folks shoving the post about what to do when you don't like a daily deviation in my face.

You want to find a way to bring quality back to the dd folder without butthurt people riding you at every turn?

Heh. Good luck.

Exactly. It's up too people too at least write too the founders and DD's choosers too pick a more wise picture each day. I understand the tastes in different art and how much it helps the artist get known but you need too be rewarded for effort

"but you need too be rewarded for effort"

Maybe in the factory, or maybe not :confused:
But in art? Isn't it the result that counts?

For them perhaps, but that's personal gain. Like said, they have other work that has a place as a DD not this..

Just your opinion... one opinion.
The one who decided to feature it was also having own opinion about this.
No need to hurt the artist like this, for one opinion.

If know it's my opinion then they shouldn't be hurt. I'm not getting into a argument about this but I respect your ideals. If you continue too try and argue I will just delete the comment. Recommend you do the same with mine.

. . .

Every time you wrote "too," it should have been "to."

"Too" means "also" (i.e., "I like that song, too.")

"To" is either a preposition, "they went to the store" or an adverb: "after I came to."

Make sense?

Why on earth would I be mad? I'm simply trying to help a fellow human being out in expressing themselves properly. In the long run, darling, your misspellings not going to affect me one way or the other. I'm not the one who's going to look like an idiot for not being to remember whether to write "to" or "too." If you don't want to try and better your communication skills, it's not my problem. I was simply trying to help~

Is it weird that I LOVE this?
I can't say what this picture is all about... but at the same time I feel as though the goldfish isn't telling the story... or even it in. It's as though... we are the subject and the goldfish is the audience. It's probably wayyyyy off of what you've thought, but that's just my thoughts -shrugs-

I don't want to get into a fight over DD's anymore.

I see what you mean, bro. I personally believe this isn't really DD worthy.

Reminds me of the time a scene kid took a photo of herself. And it won a DD.

Scene kids... Gosh, I find scene kids way way way too far over the top.

DD's are usually dissapointing, usually the modern art and photos lately.
What happened to visually captivating colors, or crystal clear photo quality?

No matter how much they tell us it's just to make spotlight of lesser known artists... I think they should read the artist's comments... because if it's intended to be something that they themselves consider art, they'll say something more than "Lol" or "."
like some of the DD's have done.
