I have been reading your blogs here almost daily.Not only do I learn from them but also I found them inspiring.I am very new here and do not have a lot of experience in ‘real’ photography.I joined for the main intention of having my work critiqued by a neutral party, vice loved ones who won’t necessarily point out my mistakes and/or don’t have the professional eyes to see them.Oh what a joy it’s been for me to have portion of my submissions accepted AND I also take delight in reading... continue reading

I have submitted pictures that I was certain would be of great interest, only to be rejected and have also had the reverse happen also.I do have a small beef with that only because I worked in creating and archiving stock shots for many years and thought I had a good idea on what would be useful.

Some help on keywords

Here you are:1.Try... continue reading
