The Photoblog Thread

This thread is for anyone to post images in. If you don't have a photoblog you're still welcome to post images here.

People with blogs should post clickable thumbnails which take viewers directly to the page on their blog where the full-size version of that image is shown. Here's an example (replace the normal brackets with square brackets to make the forum code work):

(URL=http://www.yourdomain.com/link/to/page)(IMG)http://www.yourdomain.com/link/to/thumbnail(/IMG)(/URL)

Red = forum code
Blue = URLs (change to link to your blog)


Or you can use this handy code generator:

People who don't have blogs can choose whether to post a bigger version of an image or not (maximum of 900 pixels along the longest edge, please). In general, if you use image hosting that allows viewers to comment publicly then you'll probably want to use the thumbnail method above to draw traffic to where your image is hosted and keep the comments there.

If you use image hosting that doesn't allow people to make comments (like Imageshack etc) then it's probably best to just post the bigger version in this thread and let people make comments here.

Which brings us neatly onto the comments themselves. People here are encouraged to share their opinions on each other's photographs and this includes criticism. By posting images in this thread you are accepting that people will voice their views on your pictures, positive, negative or anywhere in between. You don't have to respond to any comments about your photos but you must accept that people have a right to air their honestly-held opinions as long as they are not defamatory or personally insulting.

That said however, what happens on your own photoblog is entirely up to you and if you have rules that might be considered out of the ordinary you should post them here before sharing any images so that we're all aware of any restrictions that apply to your domain. What has been said above applies only within trickery.

Wherever possible, people should make comments on the blogs themselves as this typically generates an email to alert the owner of the blog that a new comment has been posted and it will get seen much quicker. It also allows comments to be kept in one place and avoids spreading talk about a particular photo around several areas.

More general discussion about photography/photoblogging is also welcome here within reason, but questions about kit and lenses should be asked outside of this thread. Please consult the stickied threads at the top of the forum for useful links and advice on buying cameras and other photographic kit.
