I cut my teeth here at DA during its launch and it was a truly wonderful experience. After a power coup, I lost my interest here and moved over to Flickr, another great experience. However, Flickr (Yahoo-owned) has been making over their site and the changes are not good for the user. I've tried a few other photo sharing sites (Photo-Bucket, Ipernity, 500px, WordPress) and none really did me right.
At the moment, I am thinking about coming back here. However I have a few concerns to address before I do. My main one is about the user agreement here. The reason I left in the first place was because of concerns with DA's rights to sell my work. Okay, I'm not a big shot photographer, but I don't like people having free access to my passions.
So, let's see what happens.
