Hi Penny and welcome to Epz. I've just come here from your forum thread.

That's quite a first upload!

If it's advice or honest, worthwhile feedback that you're looking for, then try putting an image or two in the "critique gallery." We're a friendly enough bunch in there (usually!) and there will always be someone around to answer your questions and/or point you in the right direction.

I'll look forward to seeing more of your work.

Well done,

Thanks Bren - Hopefully it will stop raining long enough for me to get out this weekend! How do I upload to the critique gallery? Still trying to find my way round the site - so bear with me!!!!! Grin

I've been here three years and I still can't find most of it!

Critique Gallery;
As you upload an image, you'll find a selection of boxes near the bottom of the page, all of which require ticking or ignoring depending upon your purpose.
There's one (don't ask me which!) which has next to it an option to post your image in the CG.
Another gives your permission for us to modify your image and upload our (hopefully improved, or at least alternative) modifications, in a new window, but still with your image. (Have a look through my pf. or the CG to see how it works.)
Also, by posting in there, voting is automatically switched off for that image on the assumption that you'd rather get some feedback than just be told that someone likes it.
Your image then gets posted in both the main gallery as usual but without being able to attract votes and it appears simultaneously in the CG where it will rub shoulders with images by other members with the same desire for advice/feedback as yourself.
You can also give us your views and opinions on the work in there. New faces and ideas are always very welcome.
And don't say that you're not suffuciently qualified to do so! Everyone's opinion has value and is important.

See you there!

Thanks Bren - this is just the sort of info I need! Just want to learn and develop and get satisfaction from (hopefully!) improving. Thanks for taking the time to respond - really appreciate it Smile

Hi again!

Just a thought. As a fully paid-up member of Epz., you're entitled to upload an image to the CG every day (I believe).

If there's anything else you need to know, just ask on here or in the forums. Somebody will give you an answer.

. . . then ten others will tell you that he's wrong!

Ha ha ha! Yeah I gather there are no starightforward 'right' or 'wrongs' and for every 'opinion' there seems to be a 'counter-opinion' Plenty of food for thought though, and things to try and see what 'feels right'. Thanks again Smile
