    What do you think, why do people upload their photos on the websites?

    Generally photographers are interested in getting there photos seen by as many people as possible. That is the beauty of the web. I do not know of that are in to be famous.

    I think we all want some form of validation in what we are doing.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    For the same reason people make prints. Just another form of display... I don't think there's any deep pyschological relevance to it.

    I think it's a matter of having the feedback, immediate and a bit anonymous--that the web offers; as opposed to slaving over the Great American Novel only to wait for months while some editor has his way with it (no, I'm not bitter)--the web allows you to receive a critque almost as soon as its uploaded. I don't believe it's to get famous; it's too damned easy to get famous these days.
