Great dawekato 2012-05-29 7:51

Hi Karin,
You do beautiful, graphic, colourful work that is imaginative, and sharp. I think the objection to your images on TE might have been that they do not "teach us anything about the world". This site is more for travel images. You might want to try posting on TrekLens. That's more dedicated to creative photography.

Default To dawekato: Teaching

I teach that the world can be colored and different that we saw at first sight...And I hope to teach another way of seeing things which surround us... An other way to see and think the world.
I posted a few years ago on TL but I have never found the good-companionship of TE and I do not like this site. Not my place

And if you look at my whole gallery, you will see more classical pictures, travel images, etc etc... Everybody can be satisfied

Karine

Default TrekLens

I've never tried TL. Thanks for the warning. True,TE is a very friendly place, maybe because many of the photographers who post here are more in the beginners category. I get a lot of very nice critiques, but few of them are really insightful. Also, I think TE people form friendships and favourably critique each other's submissions. I usually try to give some constructive criticism and often demonstrate what I mean with a workshop.

I don't have my own website, so one way I use TE is as a website where I can refer people who want to see a sample of my images.

Thanks for the conversation,
Eva

Hello Eva

It seems that you use TE like I do... No favoritism. No "I give you a green smile cause you comment my picture". No hypocrisy.
I try to be faithful to my opinions for 5 years and I comment only the photos I like. And those I appreciate but which have defects that I try to underline. Mostly I illustrate my opinion with a ws.
Therefore, in spite of my 5 years and my numerous photos, I am not noted as well as many of the others on the site

I left TE during almost 9 months. But in spite of all the defects of the site, the system of cronyism, I have never found somewhere else this interest for the photo. So here I am again !

Hope you will enjoy too.

(sorry for my mistakes in English )

Default how I choose photos to critique

Hi Karine,
First of all, your English is very good.

My choices for critiquing are pretty haphazard. First I look at what jumps out at me on the page where I have just posted an image. This is just pure laziness or time saving. I can't look at all the postings or I'd be on the site all day. I do try to respond to those who have taken the time to critique me, trying to either find their best image to compliment, or something I can add a constructive suggestion to. I also try to look at photos of Newbies, those with few accumulated points in order to encourage them. I also critique some images I want to workshop.

As I said, this is not a strategy, just the way things have worked out.

Good exchanging ideas with you, Karine.
Regards,
Eva
