Default Photo Critiques, Transportation, Vehicles, Computers

Thanks to a lot of great suggestions from members, as you may have noticed, we've made some changes and are pleased to announce the following new forums under Post Your Photos, which some of you have already started to use over the past week.

HDR (High Dynamic Range Imaging)

Transportation (Cars, Trucks, Motorcyles, Planes, Trains...)

We've also added this new forum:

Computers and Operating Systems (PCs, MACs, Displays, Networks, File Storage...)

It's always tough to decide what to change, so that it's not confusing to members trying to decide where to post about a given subject (and too many forums can contribute to that).

But as popular as HDR imaging is now, it really makes sense to add a forum specific to it. The same thing applies to having a dedicated forum to discuss Computer related hardware (including displays, operating systems and storage media), since larger file sizes from newer cameras, and more advanced image processing techniques, can require more advanced hardware to process, display and store those images.

Requests for a forum specific to transportation related photos (cars, trucks, planes, trains, etc.) has also been one of the more frequently requested additions. Now, we have one.

We have also renamed our old Critiques and Techniques forum to Photo Critiques, where members can post a photo and receive suggestions on how to improve it via constructive critique, thanks to the hard work by our members and moderators willing to help others, with a special thanks to Hards80 for suggesting that we make this change, along with input and encouragement from Mark1616. Please make sure to read the Photo Critiques Guidelines (a new "Sticky" thread in that forum, with Guidelines for posting in it).

Use of this forum allows members to continue sharing their favorite images in one of the subject specific Post Your Photos Forums, with the opportunity to select a photo they want to get additional feedback on by posting it in Photo Critiques, where members and moderators can share there thoughts about it with more detailed critique.

Note that if you want comments and critique on a photo posted in one of the other forums, please make sure to add something like "C&C welcome" to your posts, so that members know that you don't mind receiving comments and critique outside of the forums setup specifically for that purpose (of course, comments and critique are to be expected if you submit images in the Biweekly Shoot Out Forum, where the hard working moderators have guidelines setup as sticky threads)

But, if you have a specific image that you'd like detailed and constructive feedback on, we encourage you to submit to Photo Critiques, too (even if you've shared it with others in the subject specific Photo Forums).

We wish to thank everyone for participating in these forums, with a special thanks to the moderators and members working so hard to help out. That helps us all to improve our photography skills, and in turn, share what we learn with other members wanting to learn more about producing better images. After all, the best equipment you can buy is only going to help so much, without an understanding of the photography skills needed to produce images that you'll be proud to share with others.
