    All they say is "nice" on clearly shitty shots, you learn nothing. Is OT A&P the only place where people are appropriately critical?

    Theres a handful of people on POTN who actually know what theyre talking about and wont hesitate to tell you what you need to do to improve.

    However, mostly its people without a clue who do just what you described.

    FM is a little better than POTN but its still not as nice as Id like it to be. There do seem to be less Parent-with-rebels-photographing-5-year-olds on FM though...

    I much prefer Fredmiranda also. I browse the POTN forums from time to time but never post.

    They tend to have some pretty good tips but you do have to wade through a few lame comments.

    FM and POTN are both awful. Usually I go more for good laughs than anything else, though I can't post anymore now that I'm banned from POTN :rofl:

    thats atleast a decent reason. I got tired of daily emails and PM from stupid people, so I stopped using my account and registered a new one with no personal info.

    someone actually looked through my posts and matched some similar ideas to my old account and reported me.

    mods gave a lifetime ban for multiple accounts :ugh:
    its not wonder no decent pros hang out there anymore

    I still get 20+ hits a day to my site from links there :rofl:
    its cool, all those posts have links to my site so it helps with my SEO on google

    I hate that about their site people are too nice, you could post the worst pic ever taken and someone will still comment "nice pic" FM is a little better at least people give critique over there

    u know what the worst about photography boards are? someone will take a picture using the latest greatest lens like the 50mm f1.2 and post a 600x600 image of it and the next 30 posts would be "OMG UR PICTURE CONVINCED ME TO ORDER ONE RIGHT NOW!"

    www.dpchallenge.com is interesting

    basically, there are weekly (or daily) contests with a theme involved. various degrees of PP are allowed, depending on the contest.
