    I use them. I have had some success as of recent but it took a little while to build up enough usefull photos that I was actually making anything. As far as getting feedback on here, I have found that sometimes (especially on the weekends) there are so many photos posted that people don't feel like clicking on them all. I wouldn't take it personal.

    With big sites like this its often the case that photos can slip through the system (weekends on pretty much and big photo site are bad times to post for crits ;)). You are allowed to bump photo posts here provided that it has been a reasonable amount of time since the last post (even if its yours) and also that its off the first page of photos. I just want to say this is no fault of TPF its just the way things go with people (see people are the problem - remove them and there is no problem -- ;))

    Personally I deal with this by being a member of a few photography sites, both generalist and those more specialist to my interests and this really helps even things out :)

    One thing I have found is that if your after crits put up details with the photo - talk about taking it; shutter speed, aperture and ISO used; the general shooting conditions (cloudy, studio, sunny); the way you took the shot (what camera mode, additional lighting, flash).
    Details like that help to tell others how you both took and thought about taking the photo in the conditions availble and helps people make more replies more specific to your situation
