June's Best Facebook Group Photos

June's Best Facebook Group Photos

Week after week, month after month I am continually blown away by the talent pool found in our Fstoppers Facebook Group. What is more stunning is the level of improvement seen from members. I have watched those who went from boring, amateur, flawed images in January improve to jaw dropping, heart stopping dramatic masterpieces of posing and light in June. This past month has seen a slough of outstanding images, each truly great on their own merit.

Wow.  Thank you for featuring my long exposure photo of the pier.  I posted it to see if anyone could guess where it was, because I got such great comments on my first shot which was of a different pier.  I guess I need to share more.  I don't think anyone knew the location. :)

Thanx guys. What a pleasant surprise! 

De’Jon Howerton is a fraud, stolen photo without the original photog's consent. Original here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jbsoxb/3104219106/in/set-72157626030375000

 Please give J. J. Batte credit and not De’Jon Howerton the fraud.

So is it common practice to allow stolen photos?

Too bad De’Jon Howerton's didn't start as his own.


Credit needs to go where it's due.

De’Jon Howerton's photo is stolen from JJ Batte Photography!!

I hate to say this but De’Jon Howerton's photo isn't actually his. The BMW and background was shot by JJ Batte, an LA based photographer. I believe this is a case of stolen photo and credit and would need to go to that tumblr blog you guys posted last week. http://www.flickr.com/photos/jbsoxb/3104219106/in/set-72157626030375000

Shame on De'Jon. SHAME.


Stealing photo's and taking credit for it is so lame, I actually thought there was only one scumbag carphotographer...

How much do I have to change in order to claim copyright in someone else's work? Only the owner of copyright in a work has the right to prepare, or to authorize someone else to create, a new version of that work. Accordingly, you cannot claim copyright to another's work, no matter how much you change it, unless you have the owner's consent. See Circular 14, Copyright Registration for Derivative Works.

Hey guys - thanks for letting us know. The image has been taken down completely.

Andrew In's picture

Until you take down the collage at the title it hasn't

Andrew In's picture

thank you

Lauren Jonas's picture

Had Jaron change the main image. It's down now! :)

Thanks to JJ Batte, De'Jon Howerton is famous!... in an infamous hateful scumbag kinda way.

This was amazing! LC for life!

Dale Martin's picture

Not nice to steal DeJon!!!!!!!!!

Thou hath tasted the LC Kraken.

Jaron Schneider's picture

UPDATE: De'Jon purchased the image from a stock photography site. He did not steal it. That said, he is not in the wrong. If JJ Batte did not register his image for resale, he needs to take that up with the stock photography company, which he has been made aware of. 

Steve Demmitt's picture

So JJ Batte has to take it up with some imaginary stock photography company because De'Jon can't provide the stock photography company he bought it from. Makes total sense.....
