This is a classic shot of a beautiful rose, with a nicely defined center on the flower and a rather shallow DOF that produced a pleasingly blurred background. A couple of suggestions for improvement. It is often desirable to include water droplets on a floral like this to add interest, but if you do the impact for me is higher if they are in better focus. Next I am not so fond of the composition. While a centered composition highlights the subject, it is pretty...

What is photoSIG?

photoSIG is a community of photographers and photography enthusiasts, ranging from amateurs to working professionals. photoSIG members may critique photos that have been submitted by other users and may also submit their own photos for review by the community.

What Can I Do Here?

Emails to Abuse and other internal mail This item is new
from robertwallis/Robert (14,765) on July 10, 2014 4:47:56 PM CDT

Just thought I'd give a heads up on sending emails to the admins here; neither of us have access to the internal emails such as Abuse@photosig.com and the others listed on the contact list. For the time being, just send an email to myself or Greta.

Don't sweat the emails over the spammers as we check on those guys every few hours around the clock as Greta is about 8-10 time zones away and I'm on US EST. The spammers are annoying as hell, sort of like a never ending game of Whack-a-Mole and we remove probably 40 or more a day. Check the users tab and you'll see what I mean. The main sources are from Poland, VietNam, India, and a few other places.

I haven't forgotten the mentors list. It hit me that the ones who need the extra help don't read the forums postings, so the only way is to go back and look at the photo postings and try to sort out who is active and in what categories. My head isn't going to explode, I keep telling myself. Noo, it's not going to happen ;-/
