Any interest in creating professional photo gallery?

You might be able to find many photographs in public domain; I never looked into photography, but there is a lot of content in public domain. If you can find professional photographs, would you be interested in creating a photo gallery in this site?

Yeah, we could maybe do something like that... What would be the benefits, though, do you think?

I don't want to give a concrete purpose to any hobby, because the most important part, I think, is to have fun, but hobby like photography has a certain quality standard right? For example, there was a conversation about Ansel Adams a while ago and many admire his work. His work has certain quality. Introducing works like that can give a direction, an idea of what good photography is to members of this forum. Some members don't bother, and that's Ok, but some care, and they bring the level of discussion, conversation to the next level. Creating a gallery might be able to give an incentive to start discussions and conversations like that.

Interesting idea. I'll put it on the list of things to do. Where would one go find these photographs from public domain?

That's a great question, and I was asking the same question in some other forum. Since you are looking for photographs in public domain, probably what you want to do is to search for keywords like

"in the public domain"
"placed in the public domain"
"www.primarilypublicdomain.org"
Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication

while you add, photo, photograph, and picture at the end.

You should also check Common Content website. Are you familiar with Creative Common licenses?

my suggestion is to have a separate section for pro guys, and to enter there they have to prove their worth. by posting pictures or showing us their work etc.
what do you all say?

That's what the critique corner section is for... for photographers to show their work off and have it critiqued... as of right now, we also have a monthly "Photograph of the Month" contest as well, with more contests/skill competitions to follow as the member-base increases... Do you mean have a seperate section for professional photographers, where they have to "earn" admission to that particular section of the forum?

I think it is a viable option as the forum grows a lot bigger and many professional photographers join, but to be honest, this forum is not there(yet).

Honestly, I don't think that this forum is at the point that can tell pros "Hey, here's a place you want to show off your work. Show us your work, if it's good enough, we let you in."

I think this forum is still at a point which forum members want to ask pros to join in and share their skills and knowledge and ask permission to republish their work. This is why I suggested to look into works in public domain and other works that can be redistributed legally.

I think that having "Pro Work" on the site might be inspirational to some of us. It may broaden some of our minds to things we had never thought of photography wise.
