I am here on DA to improve and I am always pleased when I get good honest feedback. I love a good critique but even more I love to receive suggestions for improvement. I may not always agree but I am always grateful when someone takes the time to view and comment critically on one of my submissions.
With that in mind I have decided to drop out of a group that fairly consistently declines my photos without comment. I find this process singularly unhelpful. It's like saying there is no help for you so stop trying. What I would like to see is a high-standard group formed by experienced photographers who would take the time to say 'declined' because.......... the process should only take a moment and could even be built into the system. I think this would be a real benefit to the DA photography community.
