New feature – the Critique Corner

From Colin – the creator of MyPhotoClub.

A new feature, known as the critique corner, has been introduced to the club website.

The Critique Corner aims to help members to fine-tune potential entries by gaining feedback from other members before the image is entered into a competition. 

All members, regardless of experience are encouraged to upload images and make comments on images.  The aim is to help each other to develop both your image capture and processing skills, and to take the judges’ point of view when assessing an image.

Each member can upload one image per category.  Once uploaded you can use this image in an upcoming competition.  You can remove the image and replace it with another image whenever you choose.

The best practice is to upload an image and then add a comment that poses a question regarding the image – e.g. Do you think it is oversaturated? Should I crop it tighter?

The critique corner is accessible from the Members page (use the grey Members button) as shown below:

This is a new MyPhotoClub feature so feedback to colin@myphotoclub.com.au is welcome. All members are subscribed to receive a once a day notification message when new images are submitted.

For more information, or to unsubscribe, go to the Critique Corner page.

Here is a video on how to use this feature.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=3&v=CgITBx_uuMs&feature=emb_logo
