Some bad stuff, dA love and white wolves - PHOTOS

Journal Entry: Fri Dec 2, 2011, 1:24 PM


I must say, that I see it more and more often here on dA. When I browse photos of animals, I almost everytime find photos of road kills or dead animals in general, often deatiled shots of their entrails and decayed bodies. I understand that some people can not take photos of alive animals in ZOOs or in the wild, but seriously... do they need to post dead animals? Moreover, usually bad quality snapshots of bowels? :( :( I think some people just forget that this is deviantART. AAAAAARRRRRRRTTTT. I do not think that remains of dead racoons are art. I find it disgusting. At least it should be posted to category "Horror", not wild animals :/ just saying my opinion.

Edit: people, I speak about REALLY disgusting photos of animals, which are torn into bloody pieces by cars. I do NOT speak about photos of dead animals in general, which can be used for anatomy references :)


On the other hand, I hope you noticed that time to time, I give some critiques, usually to people, whose photos are fantastic, but in my opinion, they do not have the attention they deserve. I really do not feel like some superior artist or fantastic photogrepher, who can give advice to other authors. I just know that if I post a critique, some nice animal pictures become visible to you, my dear watchers and that you usually appreciate such photos with some comments and faves :aww:

I do not post my critiques to pretend I can advice the other. I post them, because I believe some photos are so wonderful and their authors are so gifted, that they need to be recognized. And I think YOU, my watches, can discover some new very talented animal photographers through those critiques :) that's all. For me, those critiques are my way how to contribute to dA love :)


I would like to thank you for voting for Allerlei! :aww:

I think there are people who are simply interested in the macabre.

About the killed-anima-lphotos I can just say that this giant community gets used by some disturbed people who like to share their disgusting fetish. So sad ...
But here a lot of talnted photographers and artists which show use how beautiful animals are :)

It took me a moment to realize what had happened when I logged in a while ago... I had received like 50+ new feedback messages in little over 12 hours:O usually I get some ~5 of them in the same amount of time:faint:
Thank you so much for the feature!:hug:

I have agree with you that gruesome dead animals shouldn't be in "wild animals" category... I would understand if there was clean (=non-bloody) high quality photos in viscera classified under resources - I actually found a deviant who had a folder in her gallery for such photos. May sound icky, but one can actually learn a lot from those photos, as she has named the internal organs on the pictures! Reminds me of 9th grade biology lessons when we studied human anatomy... our teacher showed us some (animal) viscera and dissected them so we would get better idea of the anatomy of the internal organs. (I still remember how she said "and all the future vets and brain surgeons to the front line") There's no better way to learn anatomy than seeing it yourself... But what you were talking about in the journal - it's just disgusting :no:
