Photo Comments


Ok...I'm not sure if it is me or what. There are so many beautiful "real" photos on this site that have not one comment, but there is a photo of a bolt that has several comments? A bolt..now come on...there is nothing great about a photo of a bolt sticking in a piece of wood. I think lots of people need glasses...

Stephanie M. Stevens   So the photo is not real or beautiful or great because its "just a bolt"?

  I can't even see a bolt WITHOUT my glasses,...so I guess I'm screwed. :(

All kidding aside,...Lots of comments here are just friends stopping by to say "Hey".
As Terry mentioned,...people who comment on a regular basis are the ones most likely to get feedback on their own photos.
It's also largely based upon timing. Depending on where you live, if you post during mid-day, late at night, or around dinner time, your comments and feedback will be be less than if you post early in the morning.

  I'm not a dolt,
If I shoot a bolt,
If it's sharp and properly placed,
So I've been tolt.....:-)

  Wow, Bob, not only are you a terrific photographer, but also not a bad poet!! allowing for the little poetic licence there of course!! :)

  Thanks, Elisabeth...:-)
But, I have to go with the stream of thought here......there are certain types of photos I don't like, but that doesn't stop me from commenting on the photographer's skill/ability to capture a mood/sharpness of photo/composition, etc.

real is in quotations, so it must be you.
