I have been a member for two years. I became a life member this year due to all the good things I see in here. Some of the photographers give great advice, Fred Smith, Don, Jimmy to name just a few. There are more. As I understand how this is supposed to work we have a main forum for general stuff we can post for advice, evaluation (when asked for) and general information flow. We have a forum FOR Evaluations. Let em rip that's what we put em there for. We have a technical forum great information flows and flows in there.
And we have this great monthly contest.
Why do we evaluate in the contest photo's??
Why are evaluations given freely when not even asked for in the main forum.
Wouldn't those kind of comments if you feel so strongly to evaluate be more appropriate in a private message?
Evaluations in the contest.. ok she doesn't look comfortable, her hair is too frizzy, oh she has implants, sorry! This is just cattiness. High school stuff. Tell her how great she looks then vote 1, kinda contradictory don't ya think?
Where are the moderators????????????
I for one when I read this from a model will not get more than a 1 vote from me, take a look girls it counts 3 times. A 10 could be 30 votes for ya.
For the photographers that just want to be cruel when the fancy hits their whim in an unsolicited evaluation, I just don't give it any credibility.
For the unsolicited evaluations that points out specific errors and then offer solutions, that's worth more than all the money I blew in photography school.
If your in for general slammin, and I just ruffled your feathers, I'm not sorry.
If I just ruffled your feathers and you have given me good advice, I am sorry, and I bow down to your greatness. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
