    Why not post a request and a link to your on-site images here on this thread?

    Then persons wishing to do some C/C can check this thread and see which images they haven't looked at yet.

    Sort of an entire-site-C/C thing.

    Critique is not the purpose of this particular forum section if you read:
    http://thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=14426
    And so the idea put forward in this thread has no place here. Besides, it will almost certainly result in this section getting mistaken for a crit forum and people will start posting their pictures here.
    If people want a crit then they can ask for it when they post an image.
    If people want to do a crit then they can look through the various galleries and look for the requests.

    didn't really want to start a debate in this thread, but if needs be we can debate here and start afreash:
    *copy paste pm I just sent*

    I like the idea, but I think you might want to take these ideas/suggestions into account

    1) people should only post once and then edit thier post with new threads as and when they put them up - that way each person only has one single post in the thread and it does not turn into a dissucssion.

    2) As this is essentially a list many people, (especially beginners) are going to be posting a basic list of thier shots on the forum - so it might be an idea to suggest that people direct link thier post in this thread in thier sig. That way anyone can instantly find the photos that a person has posted in thier time on this forum (these lists could get very long ;-)) A great idea when people have 100s of posts and only a few with thier photos

    maybe not the correct forum, BUT
    this may help prevent excessive bumping, of threads, I also find I occasionally miss threads if I have been away for a while, so I assume others may miss threads too.
    OP made it clear, post links not pictures,
    just my input :)

    Actually... we used to have a critique forum, but it became a place for banter and fighting (which I came to watch when I was bored, I might admit). I used it a lot, but there were certian posters that were blunt and sometimes mean and would get the OP offended (even if most of the time they were right). I was looking for the forum the other day and couldn't find it and realized that it has been removed (probably for the better).

    Well, if you haven't noticed, critique threads regularly end up in places like the beginner discussions and other forums besides the specific photography forums at the bottom, as well as topics like "what camera should I buy" ending up in the begginers forum, the beyond the basics forum, the photography discussion forum, the equipment review forum, the general shop talk forum, and a few others...

    So hey...what's one more going to hurt?

    well I (personally) think a thread like this (if it is going to work) could be stickied in the general Gallery - that way making it part of that section and encouraging more shots to be placed down there as opposed to up here ;)

    Isn't there a "theme" forum onsite that this may work in?

    For what it's worth, I really appreciate you starting this thread and I think its a fabulous idea. Sometimes I am in the mood for some good critiquing and get lost looking through gallerys. This would be a good way for those looking for a serious critique to get it from those looking to give a serious critique. Not just a "good job."
