well you can upload pics of naked or semi naked women, they usually do well, you can also try pics of kids, they usually get the "isn't she/he cute' comments along with the 'click' but not from me ( i hate kids)!

another method is to spend time chatting in the forum since popularity has a huge effect on the number of clicks/comments you get, it's kinda like a pat pat club, you know you pat my back and i'll pat yours sorta thing, you can also spend hours in the gallery clicking and commenting on other peoples images in the hope that some might reciprocate.

My advice though is just take the pics you like and enjoy your hobby.

Hey i'm on your side Terry ...lol ,plus i really enjoy my hobby so much more now than i ever did before.I also like to find fresh mostly unknown places, or put a different slant and try not to follow everyone else's shots .Its what makes our hobby so much fun.

LMAO welcome to EPZ!!!
My pics all bomb too and I have been a photographer for longer than i care to remember, I shoot for most of the national newspapers and occasionall some foreign ones too and my pics on here never get any attention (woe is me!!).
Don't worry about getting clicks, it's a bit of a sad obsession really. If its constructive criticism you're after then you'll soon figure out who the movers and shakers are on here. If you respect someones work and would value their opinion then there's no harm in a PM to ask them if they have time to take a look at you latest efforts and give you a few pointers.
