Gallery vs Favourites
Our Gallery is reserved for photographs chosen by CRPhotography's Admins, but our Favourites are open to Members of CRPhotography to submit their photographs.

The best pieces from our Favourites will be featured in our Gallery, while other pieces will be featured on our front page, increasing exposure all round!


Option #1: From the CRPhotography Home Page
Use the pull down menu next to the CRPhotography heading and pick "Suggest a Favourite".

Why can't we just submit our photographs directly to a gallery on the main page instead of just sending them to the favourites?

I'm not part of CRPhotography any more. If you would like an answer, please note the group.

I am more concerned with critique focused on helping me to improve... how to I submit photography with that in mind? It's not really good enough to show per se, just needing to improve!

I wouldn't say this group was the best for that. I would encourage you to join ProjectComment where we give and get comments. We could definitely do with more photographers there. :nod:

I know that this comment is a few months old, but I had to say I'm part of that group and would love if more photographers joined. :)

Yes, you and me both! Perhaps you can join PhotographyGuide instead?

Can you explain the comment month to me? Are we allowed to submit to that folder?

You are allowed to submit one piece per month to the Comment Month folder. However, as the deadline for submissions is the 7th, your piece won't be featured for people to comment until this time next month, if that makes sense?

You are welcome to submit to the folder any time you like, though. :)

I'm a bit confused about this.  When I submit my photographs to the favourites no one will see them, they don't get watched, but I will get the admin's photos in my inbox?  How does that give my pictures more exposure? :confused:

Your pieces get more exposure there because those images are used in news article features, and so on. :nod:
