Don't tell me what you don't like.
I'm not interested.

Because what you don't like is
simply what you don't understand.

Instead tell me what you do like.
Because that is what you understand.

That is what I can learn from you.

Hmm, sorry aber das klingt mir nach "milchmädchenhaftem" Wunschdenken. Etwas zu mögen, von etwas fasziniert sein bedeutet doch in den meisten Fällen, es eben gerade nicht zu durchschauen, nein? Gerade in bezug auf Dein Metier, respektive die betörende Schönheit junger Frauen hiesse es doch, seiner unreflektierten Sympathie nachrennen und immer wieder einer lediglich oberflächlichen Schönheit zu verfallen und somit einer durch anspruchslose Bewunderung verdorbenen Seele ins offene Messer zu laufen. Wie aufschlussreich und lehrhaft ist schon die Bekanntschaft mit öffentlichen, ehibitionistischen "like it" - Persönlichkeiten? Um wievieles präziser und anschaulicher wird eine Person durch die Erfahrung der zwanghaften Enge ihrer no-go-Gernzen, ihrer unüberwindlichen Antipathien! Durch diese Verse wird für mich der Wunsch nach unbeschwerter Kritik- und Verantwortungslosigkeit zum Ausdruck gebracht. Man versuche nur, einen Menschen auf seine Sympathien festzunageln:) Nach der "ich mag Dich doch" - Floskel, die Angebetete ihren Verehrern gern entgegenbringen. Auf seine Antipathien is allerdings jeder Mensch einschwörbar. Seine Abneigungen sind in jedem Falle wahrhaftiger. Ich denke seiner Wahrheit kommt man einem Menschen näher von der negativistischen Seite. Hass ist in jedem Falle auch unerschütterlicher. Ein verlässlicher Partner:) Ok, also ein wenig verträumt diese Zeilen. Aber umso bersuaschender Deine Bilder!

:no::no::no::no::no::iconwplz:hat YOU CAN LEARN FROM US, Stefan!:no::no::no::no::no:

1) :icondplz:on't put insulting ditty's to other artist's just because they differed in view to you. It's YOU who has failed to understand that it is human nature that we won't like everything we see, hear, touch etc....and apart from that it just spoils, with its inclusion here, what is an excellent gallery of work!

2) :iconyplz:ou don't have to understand an image to like or dislike it. It is a visual moment not an academic moment (which is why its a well known fact that you can never truly understand the mind of an artist when they create their art!).

3) :iconlplz:astly! In the same way as 62GUY's comment, "I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE KILL EACH OTHER" but i know i don't like it!

:iconoplz:ther than that Stefan, keep up the excellent work and don't ever change your wonderful approach as to why you do what you do (though you could have access to more if you turned pro - you are that good my friend...IMHO - and it would'nt detract from your way of thinking of why you work the way you do).

Hello Stefan...

Here is a good quote to you:

"The meaning of the message...is the change...it produces...in the image"...

Greetings Jakob.

I see a darkness throughout the compositions of your work. But, it is a darkness that is needed to make the work as good as it is. I like the female form. I like the female form in erotic situations. You have both of those arenas covered with a depth of your own story blended into it.

I learn from you that the various lighting and surroundings of your compositions of the female form in erotic situations reflect a darkness that i have in myself from being a PTSD sufferer.

But that is another story.

Have you learned about me now?

I should think that if one's emphasis in life is about what one doesn't like, that will explain the course of that person's life.

Conversely, a person whose emphasis is on what they like will always have what they like. :-)

What I like is that art when it has an "intangible" that makes it a good thing, do you know that some art can be "very good?" it is quality of the idea and the looking at it that is how you look at it, aesthetics can ONLY take you so far.

There are too many photogs out there that folly when trying to capture sensuality in photography... it can tend to border on, or cross the line of pornography.

Grosha77 has a rare talent to keep his photos artistic, and beautiful, and thoughtful. Amazing work.

I have to agree with the commentors. There are a lot of situations where my text doesn't apply. I actually wrote this after reading a lot of articels in newspapers about music and movies the journalist didn't understand at all. So I thougt it would have been better if the journalist wrote about something he loved... maybe his favorite band or his favorite movie, something with quality I didn't know yet.

But of course journalist don't very often can freely choose what they want to write about.

I like the poem, but I don't agree.

It is my understanding of some things that lets me decide what I do and don't like.

Admittedly all that I do or don't like is subjective.

And for me, what someone doesn't like, I do want to hear because often what they don't like is what has the most impact on them.
My girlfriend left not because of what she liked but because of what she didn't. In my opinion one needs to know both sides of a story.

Peace.

Don't change your taste because of us.
Don't change based on the few that fuss.

Ones art is ones own.
Who cares of who moans.

The simplest thing to do,
Is to just please continue.

(oy, but don't mistake honest critiques
from the masses of blatant harsh freaks
there are some voices out there...
who do more than just judge whats fair....
so listen with care
I'll give you that dare.
I bid you farewell and adieu)

I don't concur with that statement at all. It's nice to hear good things about yourself and your work, but you don't grow if that is all you hear. It takes strength to listen to an opposing viewpoint and really listen and understand.

I was reading it literally. And from that perspective I'm thinking, how can someone be so closed off as to not learn from others peoples view points. How does one grow and develop with the mind set of just hearing what is good.
