Every Friday in front of my house there is a street market...
Well... the last 3-4 days I had more time in my hands that I would need... and all that because I fractured a muscle in my right leg... so now, crutches are my best friends! :giggle:
I had all the time in the world to answer my notes, messages, see your deviations... and now? now what?
I stayed online for I don't know how many hours, finished editing older works... and got sick of watching TV! :puke:
any suggestions?

Every Friday in front of my house there is a street market...
Veggies, fruits, flowers, poultry and fish, house items and clothing... everything you'll ever need you can find it there...

People shouting from 7:00 am in the morning up until late in the afternoon... a busy day full of colors, voices, noise... and drivers that cannot hold in their heads that no matter how hard they use their car horns, the market is not moving a notch!

:groups? why bother at the end?:

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 7, 2011, 7:24 AM


Today I'm going to bother you with my nag… but really, I still feel offended and confused…
Be informed that my ranting will take more than the usual 5 lines of my journals… :giggle:

Since my return on dA, some days ago, I was trying to promote my images through submitting them to some groups… I was an admin to 4 groups before I left dA but resign my position since I thought it was not fair to be so inactive, as maybe other people would like to contribute more than I could at that period of time… So, I have some previous experience on how admins act and what they have to deal with…
Among others, I submitted 3 of my images to a group, with thousands of members, allegedly being known for choosing extraordinary art images… monofacture

I know that when I visit its galleries, I usually found gems and beautiful images… but there are also some images that do not justify their presence there… so I thought I would give it a try…

All 3 of my images were rejected… I asked for a reason why for the 2 of them… since as stated in the group, they 1500+ submissions per week and no time to explain declines, unless asked.
Please note that I do not think that my images are outstanding, unique or that they should be automatically accepted in any group submitted… and yes, I might overreacted and be a bitch about that… but please let the words speak for themselves:

For my image

haunted... by FioReLLo

I got this answer:
Admin: This photograph was declined because it lacks the kind of impact, insight and vision it could have.
We get TONS of portrait photograph submissions each day and I surely know the difference of mediocre work and outstanding work when I see them.
A portrait image must be outstanding in order to be accepted.
Try viewing your subject in a new light, in a new angle, in a new and inspiring way to make the viewer of your image say; "Wow, this is truly outstanding work!". Then not only the viewer but also you shall be happy about your work.
Always keep your heart with you while shooting.
Otherwise your attempts shall fall short.
My answer: thank you for this answer.... this is not a portrait... this is under the category of artistic nude...
Apparently it's one of the answers that you have ready for situations like that...I was looking for a more inspiring one...
Images of mine have been rejected by other groups, but never this way...
I do not like the answer, and maybe just maybe my photo is a mediocre one, but make no mistake... first of all don't make an assumption that I am not HAPPY with my image and secondly, please, do not patronize people by saying "Always keep your heart with you while shooting"... you have no idea what it's on my heart or mind when I do that click... it's at least insulting...
Finally, please next time you'll write about mediocre images, take some time to take a look at the group's gallery: the majority of the images are great, even inspiring in some cases... but plllllease, do not uphold that you escaped mediocrity...
I will wait for an answer, I hope a better answer than this one, on this [link] and then leave your group... as I do not need mediocre answers that lack insight and vision.... i give you the impact one... you made a hell lot of a negative impact on me and of course since you represent the group, this negative impact rolls on it as well...

For my image:
new tutu... by FioReLLo
I got answers from two different admins and here they are:
Admin#1: I didn't get a chance to vote. But it would have been a resounding YES from me... I love this image. Not sure why it was declined. I hope one of the other members can give you a reason.
My answer: thank you for being kind enough to give me your view...
I was just wondering... an image that has been awarded in competitions, presented in conferences, published in magazines, printed on posters, being on TV and even given a DD here at dA... is not good enough for #monofacture? or there is something else going on that I am not aware of?
I guess i will have to wait until one of the admins that decline this image will find the kindness to honor me with an answer...
thank you...
Admin#2: I don't know why it has been declined. I would have accepted it as well. I guess it was mainly because the thumbnail looks rather "boring". You have to understand that we get 1500+ submissions per week and it's a tough job for our administrators. Sometimes images get declined without even being opened in full view.
Another thing: DDs, TV, Posters, publications have no meaning when it comes to quality. The images i got DDs or publications for are very rarely the ones i think are my best.  
I'll request it into our gallery.  
The only thing to be critiqued here maybe is the really narrow dof and the cut-off hand. but i think it's still pretty nifty.


I got yet to answer that since I really do not know what to reply to "I guess it was mainly because the thumbnail looks rather "boring" or "Sometimes images get declined without even being opened in full view." REALLY????
Are groups here to SERVE and RESPECT art and deviants or simply to be POSH and ELITIST?
Maybe I am just boring them with my thumbnails and I have to apologize for that… I know I sound like  little resentful bitch that is nagging about her images being declined... but please... even if that is true, are those answers ok by you?

... until Santa flies! :santa:
So... if you have any last minute wishes, you'd better be quick!

2010 was a very odd year for me and I have mixed feelings about it...

Finance and politics in my country are getting worse and worse and the number of people that are living below the poverty threshold is getting bigger... I almost lost my father on a motorcycle accident during this summer and my fiancé had to go through 3 medical operations...
Of course, I have also reasons to be grateful of... they are both alive, kicking, and so much irritating most of the times... :giggle: and furthermore, now, I have the chance to work as a photographer.
Insecurity might be the main feeling in Greece right now, but I also see a tiny ray of optimism... I don't know if this is enough, or if things will become worse before getting better... but I do feel that people are getting bit by bit more connected to each other...

I wish you all the best for the new year to come... more dreams, more hopes, more art...

I want the stars for 2011... and dear Santa... you'd better deliver! :snowflake:

Hi guys! Long times no hear… but I guess I'm back, for now at least…

The last month was like an emotional roller coaster for me…
You may remember that I had my solo exhibition, which is still running…
My news are a bit contradictory…

At the opening day of the exhibition my fiancé got into surgery again, after his third hospital admission, so you can guess that I was not so excited as I wanted to…fortunately surgery went ok and now he is at home recovering… but my adventures doesn't end here… on the second day of the exhibition a vessel in my right eye broke – due to the intense stress and pressure - and  I woke up with a completely red eye… I was like a vampire or something… and that is not all folks! :giggle:
Apparently, the eye medicine in combination with some food I ate create an allergy of a sort on the third day, and I had to be urgently admitted to the hospital for a cortisone treatment… :faint:
Until the cortisone shot I could not speak at all… I lost my voice! Unfortunately for some ppl, I got it back… :lol:

At the moment this journal is written I am safe but looking every now and then up to the sky… maybe an acme anvil is about to fall on my head! :rofl:

At least the opening went more than great! I had almost 100 people on that day and it was really beautiful…
Below you can see some pictures I managed to take… I'm not very happy with them, but it was the best I could do under the circumstances…

I am happy to announce you my first solo exhibition that will take place on the 17th of April...

Luckily enough the cultural association of the city of Megara (a city near Athens) noticed my work and made me a proposal for a solo exhibition at their amazing neoclassic building...

I got in love with photography 16 years ago, and until this day it's the thing that inspires me, motivates me, makes me feel alive... I even think in pictures some times...!
I try hard for my images to be more than still moments... they are still emotions... Emotions are fleeting but a single click can keep them alive for ever...

So, if you do live in Greece and you think that Megara is not too far away from where you are, I will be expecting you... It will be a pleasure meeting you in person and thank you for your support...

Hi guys… Happy Easter to all of you who celebrates it… Χριστός Ανέστη!
I hope you had a great break now that spring is here…

This Easter vacation left me a bitter sweet taste…
I had all my vacations planned out, friends and relatives expecting me and of course my camera loaded and ready to shoot but… well, let's say they are right when they say that God is laughing at us when we are planning… :nod:
My fiancée went into surgery for some minor operation as it turned out to be, as he was losing blood internally. Thank God it was nothing serious but as you may understand we spent Easter just us two in Athens… As I write this journal, I have yet to leave the house for 5 days now! :faint:

I think that after these "vacations" I will need some rest! :B

However, I have also some great news! My ballerina is appearing in a TV ad for a Parkinson's Disease convention that will be held in Athens in a few days… The ad is appearing in all national TV channels. Fortunately, all channels gave free on air time for 15 days! Good for them!

I have some news for you…
First of all I am excited as one of my images was requested by Michael Wiese Books to be the cover in one of their screenwriting books! :boogie:
walking in San Sebastian... by FioReLLo
It’s going to be published in about 9 month from now, so I have to wait until I get a copy in my hands! :eager:

Second, I have to thank JaRvIs-88 as he donated me a subscription as a prize for winning Dragonant’s "Portraits without face" competition… My winning deviation was
new tutu... by FioReLLo
Thanks to all who voted for my image!

Third, I just got an invitation to participate on May to one of the biggest Art Fairs in my city: ART Athina… I’m so excited about that!

…and since I feel like joggling quite a lot of stuff lately, my feature is about circus… what else? ;)

I have been missing for some time now from dA and I have to apologize for that… as always I will try my best to catch up on my messages and deviations…
Ok… what is the matter around here?? The group system was supposed to make our lives easier and get our works the attention they deserve… instead of that ppl are rude, fighting, deciding arbitrary and without a set of rules to deny works… Hysteria is prevailing!
Cool off guys! Especially admins… they seem like they have on their shoulders the weight of Atlas and some of them are rude and behaving in a very authoritative way! dA is here for our recreation and hobbies…
I surely get upset some times, as I am an admin in some groups, but I try to keep it as polite and cool as possible… Some members do not understand English quite well, as it’s not their mother tongue, some of them are a bit lazy and do not read rules… ok, aren’t we all sometimes?
So next time you feel like exploding try to count up to 10… it works! ;)

:not a happy face... for now:

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 22, 2010, 12:27 AM




I must confess that 2010 has yet to show me its best self...

The flat just below mine was almost caught on fire, as the lady living in there forgot on the open electric stove the food she was cooking and went to bed... I woke up by the smell of the smoke, and we almost had to broke her door open as she didn't answer... thankfully enough we did save her... although her kitchen and living room are not...

among other quite severe personal problems - that I'm not going to bore you with - I lost my loving little Karolina, who was with us for 15 years... we had to put her to sleep as the doctor found in her a huge tumor of 20cm... I am grateful that she did not suffer at all!! I don't think I could live with that thought... she loved us, protected us and we will miss her enormously... she was a stray dog that we found and decided to found a home for her... she found one... ours... I miss you my princess...

:Haiti Call:

Journal Entry: Fri Jan 15, 2010, 2:16 AM




I am sure that you all heard about the great misfortune that hit Haiti some days ago...
and in case you did not, just let me tell you a few devastating facts...

- 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck at 1653 local time (2153 GMT) on 12 January
- Officials fear more than 100,000 dead and 3,000,000 affected
- Up to 150 UN staff, including peacekeepers, unaccounted for

You realize that all these are more than just numbers... numbers are there to talk to our minds... but we can also put numbers to work for our hearts... Unfortunately we cannot be there and help any way possible... but at least we can offer whatever we can spare to help the people in Haiti...

Below you can find some links to charity organizations that are trying to raise money for this cause... pls have a look and use them... there are people that can use our help!

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)
International Red Cross
UNICEF

So... ready or not 2010 is here to stay for at least a year!
