For the weekly critique threads, there are 3 simple rules we hope you'll follow:
1) Before posting a photo, please take the time to comment on a couple of photos in the thread, giving constructive criticism or explaining what you like about the photo. You do not have to go in depth about what you like and dislike. You can just simply state what you liked about the photo. We really want involvement from posters.
2) Post 1 photo a week. Please do not post multiple photos in one post (or post multiple photos in a row). Allow others to join in as well. Post photos as a reply to the OP and post critiques as replies to photos. This should keep things nice and clean.
3) Please list the settings used, if available. These settings are:

  • Focal Length
  • Aperture
  • Shutter Speed
  • ISO
  • Camera Model

Do not worry if you're not experienced in photography, the aim of this thread is to learn from each other.
Need help linking photos to the critique thread? Here are two ways that use Flickr and Imgur!
Finally, always makes sure to preview your comments before posting. If your photo doesn't load, then you need to fix the photo link/HTML code. This will keep the thread clean from broken photo comments.
Have fun and play nice!
