    Exclamation PLS READ BEFORE POSTING - Important Notice to all making Critique Requests

    To all posting pictures to seek critique



    Reminder

    Please be reminded that you're only allowed to post 1 picture every 3 days for critique request.

    There are queries about the counting of the 3 days, as we cannot standardize when 3 days starts for all members, the 3 days is calculated from the time the 1st post is made for the preceding thread.




    NOTICE 1 - 16th April 2007 Short Writeup Made Compulsory

    From 16th April 2007 onwards, a short writeup will be made compulsory for every picture posted for critique.

    Pictures posted without a short writeup that includes the following will be moved or deleted without notice.

    1. in what area is critique to be sought?
    2. what one hopes to achieve with the piece of work?
    3. under what circumstance is the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    4. what the critique seeker personally thinks of the picture

    writings like 'C&C Welcomed' or 'i took this at Ang Mo Kio' are not counted as short writeup.

    The following is a good example of how to make a critique request

    NOTICE 3 - 7th May 2007 Videos and animations not accepted

    Videos and animations will not be accepted in Critique Corner.

    ''Moving Pictures'' section is still undergoing finetuning and yet to settle down, so postings of videos and animations will not be considered for the time being.




    NOTICE 4 - 19th March 2008 Posting of others' works for critique

    Posting of a piece of work belonging to another person will be allowed on the following conditions

    1. there is proper reference/acknowledgement given to the original creator/owner of the work posted.
    2. there is permission from that creator/owner to have the work posted here.




    Posting Tips

    Critique seekers are encouraged to post your best pictures for critique. A picture with good amount of effort spent to produce will generate more interest than one that's sloppily worked out. It is also only fair to those who will be spending time giving their feedback that critique seekers put in the equivalent effort in their work.

    some points listed by zaren which will be helpful to newbies, taken from the Posting Guidelines thread.

    Critique seeker should also embed the picture within the thread instead of just providing links. This is a simple act of courtesy since the Critique Seeker initiates the critique request.

    Recommended picture size

    Critique seekers may want to resize your pictures to an easy-to-view size for posting.

    Recommended size will be between 600 pixels to 800 pixels on the long side.

    If showing a larger size picture is to be necessary, it'll be good to include the large-size image in the posting as an external link.

    Many thanks for the co-operation.

    Reminder

    A short writeup is compulsory for every picture posted for critique.

    Pictures posted without a short writeup and does not include any or all of the following will be deleted without notice:-

    1. In which area is critique or feedback to be given?
    2. What were you hoping to achieve with this image?
    3. Under what circumstance was the picture taken? (physical conditions/emotions)
    4. Thread-starter's personal thoughts about the image.

    Also, please only post ONE picture per thread and allow at least ONE week before posting another thread - this is to allow adequate feedback on images posted for critique.
