The Critique Gallery is where members can submit images that they would like to receive critical comment about. Images submitted to this gallery will have a Comments section below the image information, where any member can submit comments about the image.  The comments are "threaded" - if you reply to a comment, the reply will appear under that comment, not as a separate new comment about the image.

We have developed some intial guidelines regarding the operation of this gallery, and we may revise these (and the manner in which the gallery operates) as we see how this gallery operates.  At present, we suggest:

  • When you submit an image to this gallery, you should include the reason why you would like feedback, and/or the problem(s) that you are experiencing, in the Comments field on the Submit Photo page.  If you are seeking advice on post-processing, please include the software that you are using for this. 
  • Images submitted to this gallery will be published by a moderator before appearing, but the moderator will not reject an image for poor quality (as occasionally happens with images submitted to the New Images gallery).
  • Images published in the Critique Gallery will appear in the Latest Images column on the Home page on the day after publication.
  • Images submitted to this gallery will be counted against the daily submission limit of four images.  We also ask members to limit the number of images they submit to this gallery to not more than one per week.
  • Members offering critique comments should ensure that those comments will be of use to the photographer. The commenting facility in the Critique Gallery is not intended for general comments such as "Great shot" or "Could be better".  Comments should at least address the issue(s) noted by the photographer in the image comments field; they may also address additional issues.
  • A photographer who has received feedback on image in the Critique Gallery may submit a revised version of the image to the site, in either the Critique Gallery or the New Images gallery. Previously critiqued images will not be accepted to any of our competition galleries.

The Critique Gallery is open to public viewing, but only members may submit comments.  Please remember that you must be logged in to the website to submit comments on any image in the Critique Gallery.
