I used to take pictures to post online and get feedback and comments. But I'm realizing now that I'm taking photos for me and just because I take a good picture doesn't mean I have to show it to anyone. I was about to upload a photo to DA but then I just decided not to. It's a nice portrait with sharp focus, good DOF, I spent half an hour printing it to get the tones just right. But thinking it over, it's not a picture for the world. It's a picture for me and her. I didn't take that photo to get feedback and I could care less what anyone thinks about it. The reason I bring this up is to ask why people post their photos, for comments, critiques, praise? I'm still trying to figure out why I do.
