Thank you ccb!

Do I have to be an e2 member to get more votes?

Another member here posted similar picture and got 43 votes. I get just 4.

No Siham, you do not have to be an E2 member to get more votes - but you do have to take a lot of interest in other people's images for them to give the time for yours. It also takes time to get known on the site and to find people who have similar ways of looking at the world. e.g. there are those who only comment on birds or flowers or landscape. I found it very hard initially when I saw people who had huge numbers of votes for what I felt were images that I would discard myself as not worth uploading. But that doesn't matter. The important thing is to be true to yourself, and upload what you are proud of in the way of images and glad to have in your portfolio.
I have found though, that giving time to look and comment on others work has helped develop my ideas and helped me to consider different ways of working. So sometimes if I have no time to look at other people's work I do not upload for a while, as it seems unfair to expect others to give me time without returning it. I hope that helps - and keep going. You've some lovely work uploaded already Smile

thanks helenlinda,

I appreciate what you are saying with regard to taking sometime and look at others pictures and vote/comment on others pictures in order to get some votes and attract others to view my pictures. But to some extent I disagree with this tactic; it's politics not appreciation of art. Smile

kind and sincere regards
