I'm trying to figure it out. Do you, if you open a picture in a gallery, and find that it is lacking something or is just so-so, tend to just close it? (I know there's always the looky-loos, or time contstraints etc...) Are you more likely to reply to photos that are awesome? I'm trying to place it.. I think for me personally... If ther is something *obvious* that I can be helpful with, such as a focus issue or a comp issue or something, I"ll say it. But otherwise, if I open *another* flower picture, or *another* cute baby picture that otherwise just is so-so, I just move on. Sadly, most of my stuff only gets like 1 or 2 replies each time! And I"m sitting here like oh.. sh*t. I'm one of those people that has solidly average work. In some ways, it is making me try THAT much harder each time I post to TPF though to try to get someone to be like wow, great work! But then, when someone does, I have to look through their posts to see if they reply that to everybody or how good their own work is to really judge their reply as truly honest or just something they say to every other picture. So ok. How do YOU interpret how many views vs. how many replies you receive?
