This group is for negative feedback on photos or things that could be improved only. People tend to only comment on photos when they have something nice to say, but this group is designed to go against that trend so you as a photographer can find out what is wrong with your technique. So please don't be afraid to contribute a negative comment in this group on someone else's work.

If you would like to get constructive criticism on one of your photos here is what you do.

1. Click the Link that says "Start a Discussion"
2. Upload your photo to the "Post" section on the "Start a Discussion" screen. To do this click on the little photo icon next to the text formatting icons.
3. After your photo is uploaded you might add some text under it if you wish describing what you are concerned about or what you would like to hear opinions about.
4. Please do not use the attach section because then users will have to click on a link to your photo to see it. By using the "Post" section, users can study your photo more effectively.

Dear friends, i am very much interested in still life photography but don't know the complete light setup. I just know that a large window is enough but in some still life photos , i see light on the background , could you help ?
Comment by Mike Hoffman on July 19, 2010 at 7:37pm
Hey everyone! Just thought I would stop by and ask for some criticism on my photos. I have some car photos I shot and a few fireworks photos as well on my page. I'm not really looking to become a professional photographer, although any advice I can get to be a better amateur photographer is greatly appreciated!! Thanks :)
