      Cool Photography Section : What do you think is the real purpose?

      Time to discuss something!

      What do the post your photograph's thread(s) {i.e. Auto Images, Non-Auto Images, etc} mean to you?

      - Are you looking to "just" post some pictures?

      - Are you looking at sharing your "best" photographs?

      - Are you looking at some critique to help "you" improve?

      - You don't really care?

      __________________________________________________ _____________

      Why am I posting this?

      - Firstly I feel that each of the subject related thread(s) {i.e. Auto Images, Non-Auto Images, etc} should be used to post images that you feel are some of your better images.

      - There is no point in posting some 7-8 pictures together in one post just. For example: If its the Auto Image thread, someone comes and posts some 10 odd pictures that you have clicked. That I personally feel does not serve any purpose, rather pick out 1 or 2 of the best from the lot and post those.

      - The threads to posting pictures should not only be used to "showcase" one's talent, but one can always learn a thing or two from each other's pictures. Don't you think?

      I am not proposing that we enforce a rule that one can only post 1/2 pics etc. IMHO. I just feel we need treat the photography section, as a 'photography' section a little more consciously.

      What do you guys think about this?

      Thanks for the thread Praful. Probably this will help spread awareness on keeping posts interesting, and good looking by putting up a few good pictures, rather than a random irrelevant bunch of pictures.

      This section for the reasons below:

      1. Share some of our "better" work.
      2. Get opinions on how to better our clicks.
      3. Get an idea from others, how can you compose a pic differently/better.
      4. Share ideas on camera settings to be used, tips and tricks.
      5. Discuss post processing procedures or details one follows.
      6. More importantly "encourage" people to go out with their cameras and start clicking.

      Seems like everyone here is in agreement and almost everyone is along similar lines of thought.

      So here's what I propose,

      - Encourage "Postiive Criticism", rather than just "Like"ing a post.
      - Discourage members from cluttering the subject related posts with too many non-relevant picture, or better putting it this way. Encourage members to post only the best shots out of a lot of pics.
      - Provide feedback on pictures regarding composition/camera settings/editing.

      nice initiative
      IMO:
      this is photography section: and we can have sub sections/threads where people would like to seek criticism and looking to improve their skills. one might object if a person randomly posts irrelevant pics in these dedicated threads like in a thread meant for wildlife/automobile etc

      apart from this a member should be able to open a thread and should be able to post pics that he likes - coz for him those pics might be the best. if this is not interesting or liked by others they can stay from such thread - as long one is not hijacking other's thread/or a dedicated thread this should be fine.

      I like this idea, maybe we can start with a thread titled "The Photography Critique Thread" where members can post their pics and others can provide comments on how to improve the pics?
