If your work is declined (or accepted!), and you wish to receive a critique from the contributors as to why they pressed decline/accept, feel free to ask! But please note- if you are going to request a critique, please be prepared to accept said critique.
We are not judging you as a photographer, we are critiquing a specific image you submitted. Also be aware that critiques are opinions based solely on that image. Some people may view it differently than others. One contributor may see your photo as lacking impact, while another may love it! But please, there has been an ongoing trend of people asking for critiques, and upon receiving the critique, lashing out at the contributor(s). The submission acceptance standard is very high in this group, and we have a wonderful group of photographers and art critics who are capable of upholding that standard. Their critiques to you should be viewed as constructive. Personally, as a photographer, i am always receiving feedback from clients, co-workers and even my peers on the internet. Even if a review is negative, it is an opportunity to better your work and yourself as a photographer. Maybe try applying some of the things the contributors told you to try/fix in their last critique! Something as simple as DOF or composition can be the reason your photo is accepted/declined.
And again, if you ask for a critique, be prepared for some constructive criticism!
We as contributors try our best to make it as constructive as possible! Any backlash at the contributors will result in immediate removal from the group.Equine-Photography is a place where equine photographers come to be inspired by some of the freshest images in the field, and gain perspective and inspiration for future photos!
If you would like to be apart of that community than you are welcome to join the group and submit! We would love to have you! This group has grown exponentially in the past few months and i would like to thank everyone (including the contributors) for keeping this group fresh and active!
I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and is enjoying this beautiful transition time of year!
Here's to some lovely fall inspired equine photographs!Equus-Photography, Founder
