DDs are just a feature, nothing else. There is good stuff, there is crap... All a matter of taste. Some deviant features a piece... some other awards it a DD. No big deal. I think it is nice to get a DD (never got one) , because it means somebody proposed it and someone featured it and now the deviation gets a lot of attention but that's about it.
I like to browse the DDs but rarely fav something. I must like a piece enough to add it to my collection. Just my own humble opinion...
Essenzialmente dipende dall'immagine: in alcune il nudo è funzionale a ciò che l'immagine vuol dire e dunque imprescindibile, in altre è buttato lì giusto per ed è assolutamente evitabile, se non addirittura dannoso ai fini dell'economia dell'immagine. Poi insomma, c'è nudo e nudo: una vagina spalancata o delle tette davvero enormi non sono proprio il massimo da vedere in ogni caso, ma con un gioco di luci ed ombre, tessuti leggeri e/o trasparenti e cose simili è un altro paio di maniche.
Purtroppo alcuni fotografi hanno un concetto molto approssimativo circa l'uso del nudo. Una mia amica è stata contattata da questotipo le cui foto mi hanno lasciato molto perplesso: scattate alla cavolo con sfondi assolutamente triviali, il cui unico "punto d'interesse" sono i modelli nudi. Ma a che pro? ò_ò
Usually, when I look at the DD page, I just skim it and if anything in the TINY thumbnails catches my eye, I'll look at it... but most often, the DDs just seem bland to me and I move on. I think a part of the problem is that the thumbnails don't do the work any justice... as for the boobs and vagina portion of the poll, I think there are just too many exhibitionists on dA- but they usually don't get DDs because they suck at life. I don't mind some boob or some vagina, but I have limits and it really depends on how the body is being portrayed.
One of my photos received a DD and it doesn't show any boob, but my boobs are wrapped up (because I don't want to be naked on the internet) and it's a horror picture (but NOT glamorizing torture or misogynistic as so many people think), but the only people that ever fav it are perverts. Too many pervs on deviantART.
I like a great deal of the DDs. I don't actually see an awful lot of nekkid or fetish images in the DDs - I know there's loads that have been chosen as DDs over the years, but there's always lots of other things as well that are often-times really awesome. And some of the nekkid and fetish pictures are still rather good. I know it was because of a DD he got on one of his photos that I found and I love almost everything in his gallery.
I picked I don't care because I only rarely look at a daily deviation unless i particularly like it, and then sometimes i see daily deviations that i have no idea why or how they got to be one.I guess some people easily impress, with me, I'm a bit of an asshole really, so... lol I've even commented on a couple and been like nice deviation and all but i have no idea how this got to be a DD, then I have people asking me why, even the person who submitted as a DD and I told them why. lol
I was so torn There ARE too many boobs and vagina's and overall strange depictions of the female body. BUT THEN there are all these ones that just seem to have absolutely no point and makes me wonder how the hell they even got nominated for a DD.
well... from time to time i fish something completely awesome out of DDs! for example awesome photojournalistic captures (and gig photos which are completely stunning ) and some beautiful digital art. ..but on the whole i sure agree with the poll!
[link] <-here is one of those i was intendedly looking for and yes, i agree there are far more awesome deviations in my fav-gallery but those are interesting from point of view of photo-journalistic captures, which might be totally not interesting for you.
centered compositions are too stable. this one suggests of movement, so i like uncentred compositions a lot. the diagonals here are quite well done. and i like the colors here. i have noticed that you don't like it so much hun. but well... I'M not a digital artist. (yes i'm scribbling things in my moleskine notebook and i even like them and i feel certain progress but still...i have never-ever learnt any drawing) i don't feel having right to say something about digital-art-deviations with DD. what do i know about it? i can say only - i personally like it though i don't know wether it is good or bad from technical point of view. And photography is the field where i feel better because i've got certain experiences and i've learned that.
it depends....I've studied composition for a while and this is pretty uncentered. The movement is good and the shot is good too. But the author should remove a little part from the right of the pic. I think. ^^' I often make suggestion to my mother who's a photographer. Not a professionist but well...she tries. ^^
