Large threads get closed ~every month. Here's the new one.
What should I post?
If you post any photos here, expect to learn from your mistakes. We are here to help you improve and give you a little praise to help you along the way, don’t be expected to be treated as a photography god though. As long as the photos are something you are proud of, and have some sort of artistic qualities to them, feel free to post them. Just don’t post a huge batch of drunken point and shoot photos from your nightclub antics.
Example of a good post:
This poster would reply to criticism and improve themselves upon it.
Example of a bad post:
This poster would ignore all criticism and continue to think they are amazing.
Why should I post here instead of making a thread?
Often if you make a thread it is a gallery of five or more photos of which people may praise or give light criticism, if you post your photos in here you will often receive more useful criticism.
Furthermore if you have less than five great photos to show off, you should probably just post them in here instead. If you don’t think your photos are good, then people in here will be happy to help you improve (don’t cry in the corner, just post your photos!).
Don’t post photos unless you are going to give criticism to others!
If you see any photos you like of dislike, please give criticism. Criticism is far more value-able to a photographer than praise, so criticise even the tiniest of flaws in a photo!
Don’t post your own photos without giving criticism to others, as that is rather rude. Also, if you are going to post photos listen to criticism given to you and don't throw a hissy fit if someone tells you something you don't like.
