Just submitted some photos that's been sitting in my hard disks for quite some time and I have to admit that I'm certainly not as active in deviantArt as I was before.

What have been bothering me is that I'm getting lesser and lesser feedback and comments on the works I have posted in my gallery. It gets really disappointing to see the number of messages I have in my message centre and when I open it, I get lots of favourites but barely any comment.

Don't get me wrong. I neither gain instant gratifications nor have my egos boosted when I receive comments such as "Wow...that's a very beautiful shot." or "Yummy...I like your food photography." blah blah blah.

One of the main reasons I have joined deviantArt is to get feedback and suggestions to how I can work around my flaws and improve on my photography skills.

I understand that not everyone is capable of dishing out comments comparable to those of the professionals, me included. However whenever I comment, I try to talk about things like the composition, colours, photographic techniques used or even certain elements in the photos that caught my attention or evoked any of my emotions.

Look at this from another angle. While learning to give constructive comments, I became more able to appreciate photos (or any other forms of design media for the matter). I learnt to look for certain elements and components in other people’s works and apply the concepts/techniques to the stuff I do.

I want to thank all of you who have added my works to your favourites. I truly appreciate it. They still serve as some form of motivation for me to make an effort to post new works from time to time.

What I ask for is a comment from time to time. It will be good enough if let’s say you give me a comment for every 3 – 5 photos you faved.

BoffinbraiN have written a very good article on this particular subject.

Please. Show that you care. I’m still have my faith in all you deviants!
