I am considering a return to DA, depending on whether or not I continue to feel semi-inspired to submit new work (mostly not photography). We'll see what comes of this brief desire to display my work again.
If I do I think I will probably turn commenting off on my work and suggest sending me notes if constructive comments are in your heads. Most of my lack of interest in DA is due to the silly popularity contest that it has become and how that was affecting my attitude towards work I submitted/created. I feel that probably less than 1% of comments on DA are anything more than "oooh cool" or "wow thats purty." And as serious artists I feel that it is much more important for us to help each other improve our work and our thinking about what it is we create, why we create, should we even create.
AAAAAnyway random thoughts completed as well as random impulse to post a journal. New work to come . . . . maybe. . . . maybe not.
Take care, do what ya love.
