Most of us would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism. -- Anonymous

If you're looking for review or criticism of your work or web site, post a link to your online images or site. Please start a new thread for each new set of images.

It helps to include a few sentences about yourself as a photographer or perhaps a bit of background on the work. Reviewers can tailor their comments to your situation if they know where you're coming from and what you're looking for from the review.

Example: Are you a first-year student or longtime pro? Do you want general comments or suggestions with regards to, say, photo lighting or web site navigation?

Remember that asking for criticism is not the same as asking for compliments. Although you may receive encouragement and compliments, don't expect only pats on the back.

Try not to take any criticisms personally eventhough your pictures may be like children to you.

If you're commenting on another person's work, please give constructive criticisms and suggestions only. No personal attacks.

And in case it applies:

If you do post a link to your images and ask for comments, please be patient. Sometimes it can take several days, a week or longer before someone comments. Often, no one wants to be the first to post a comment or criticism.
