This is a community designed to have serious amateur/semi-pro photographers post and have their work critiqued and commented on. Seriously... please post! There are a lot of people in various photo communities that don't ever post. I check out their personal journals and they have the greatest stuff in there. Don't be embarrassed, or think you're showing off... many people get ideas by looking at others' work, and of course, art is subjective.
It is also an open-topic community. If you want to sell or trade photo equipment, by all means post. Question on how to get a certain effect? Ask! Want to talk about a new camera coming out? Do it!
Feel free to tell your friends about this place, although it would be preferred that people post photos as opposed to lurking.
For the sake of people putting this community on their friend's lists, please put ALL nude images and pictures larger than 750 px behind a cut.
This community was made in order for serious photographers (and yes, you can be serious even if you are beginning) to have a forum for critique from other photographers, which should help everyone improve their work. Please take critiques with an open mind.
That being said, DO NOT insult other members. You will be instantly removed. If someone says something about your work that offends you, do not retaliate by calling them names. Be civil.
When you join, tell us a little about yourself and include a few photos.
