1) Where to Post Your Photo

Obviously PhotographyCorner has gone through some changes over the past month by completely overhauling the sharing/feedback/critique sections of the forums. After a lot of discussions with many users, moderators and Premiere Members, we've streamlined where you post your photos for sharing and for feedback & critique. The concept is relatively simple - if you want to post a photo up just to share, post in the Photo Sharing Corner. If you want to post a photograph up and receive feedback or a critique (both positive and negative), you post it in the Critiques & Feedback Corner. If you want to give feedback or a critique, do so in the Critiques & Feedback Corner, but if you want to just browse through photographs, make some comments (but not critiques), you can do that freely in the Photo Sharing Corner. Makes sense, right? Of course, the moderators will be able to help you along the way. Oh, and if you haven't already, we've got a great, big, long blog post that outlines, forum by forum, what goes where - you can read the post here: http://su.pr/33zzpf


2) Sponsor: Competico

Competico.com, the sponsors of Contest Corner Challenge #64: Like A Child, is a social network for both amateur and professional photographers. They have a unique and user-friendly voting system for a multitude of ongoing, themed contests (like Sweetest Baby, Cutest Pet, Best Smile, Beautiful Scenery, Art Photo, etc). And did I mention you win CASH!?! You pay a small entry fee, and the community votes on the photographs. If you receive the most votes, you win $$$. Ive been browsing the contests, and there are already a bunch of PhotographyCorner members participating (even if you dont enter the contests, head on over and vote for your fellow Corner members!). Check out all their contests here: http://su.pr/AWxt3w. Weve also managed to get a special deal where you can submit a photograph for free check out the hottest competitions/cutest pet contest here, and enter for free for a chance to win $333: http://su.pr/1P0k1v.

7) Dealing With Changes Around the Corner

Change, whether it's at work, at home, or even at your favorite photography site, always takes some time to get used to. It's natural - some might even say it's human nature - to resist change... even if it's change for the better. We realize the recent changes to the Corner Forums has been tough for people. Some people liked it the way it was, some were hoping for a different set of changes, and some loved the changes we made. Hopefully, after you've taken some time to digest all the changes, you'll come to realize these changes are for the better around the Corner. It should be easier to distinguish where to post your photos, and what type of comments to leave on photographs. It's a lot more straight-forward for those of you that are new to the Corner, and, once the Corner veterans get used to the changes, I think it'll be easier for everyone. If you have a couple of minutes, take the time to read the blog post about all the changes (link: http://su.pr/33zzpf ) and it'll make the transition go smoothly for everyone involved. If it doesn't already, I know it'll feel just like home again.



See you around the Corner,
