I hope that I'm not going to come off as a whiner here but I have a small issue I'd like to bring up to forum members. I have just returned to this forum from a 2 year hiatus. I have no recollection as to why I left in the first place. But given the fact that upon returning, I posted images in 3 separate threads, which only one got replies, the other two have disappeared to the second page without even a "nice" or "blah" quote. This would make me wonder if this is why I left in the first place. I'm not saying I'm about to leave this time because of such a thing, and I may very well be overly sensitive, but I believe that if you are going to post images to share it is only fair to respond with a reply to others who post thier works. This doesn't mean "all" posts but an effort should be put forth to let people know you took a look and appreciate what you saw. Personally I do not post images on forums because I need a place to simply display them. I can do that by putting them on my own walls at home. I post my images because I am proud of my achievement and want to share with fellow photographers that can appreciate them. This does not mean I am asking for critique. If I wanted that I would post in the appropriate forum when I feel the need to make more improvements in my photography. However, I am always open to critical feedback no matter which forum I post. I will not bring this up again wether my images are replied to or not. I will however continue to give feedback and respond to others posted images regardless.
