I took this pic October 1 2012 in the Jardin Serge Gainsbourg at Porte des Lilas Paris 75019. 



Then today October 2 I found a well-made presentation in English published by the Landscape Designer, with a lot of interesting pictures (see the gallery) by Nicolas Waltefaugle.

Alas according to me, Nicolas lightened most of his pictures too much destroying contrast, I guess to please his client the Landscape Designer.

Here is my point: it's something endemic in most of commercialised pictures, exaggerated digital lightening to please Mister Clean the client.

It's something I cannot help but notice since I began to take my own amateur pics, because I have the will to share pics as close as possible to what my eyes have seen, so I cannot help but notice that most of the images circulating in the media are ultra-artificial.

I would be very grateful to read what other members think about this.
Seems to me that most of the images produced by the media we see - the media being our present environment, what we see from dawn to dusk - are edited without any respect to reality, to please Mister Clean or to please Mister Dirt.

I even suspect that National Geographic's perfect photos have more to with paintings than reality on the ground.

So Mister Netanyahu you spent your mandate taking unilateral steps on the ground and when the Palestinian suburbs of Israel get the last day of November 2012 an UN chocolate medal of "observer state", you take another unilateral 'price tag' step on the ground while seizing the Palestinian suburbs' tax revenues, and you ask a PR servant in your office - "a source" - to tweet the goyim world that "There should be no surprise that Israel will not stand idly in the face of unilateral Palestinian steps. If they continue taking unilateral steps, Israel will act accordingly".
But maybe the problem is not you, but the Israeli people's populist mindset. Maybe you are only guilty to give the people what they want, unlike Rabin.

Another Israeli PR disaster

Q - How to announce the construction of 3000 new homes in Jewish settlements the day after the UN vote giving to Palestine the Vatican status of an observer state, as the sabbath began and knowing the Israeli government could not be reached the next day?


A - By tweets.
