I'm noticing that though folks are eager to see their own work and the work of their friends here... nobody is that eager to post any feedback or comments for participating wanderlustagraphers. It leaves me not knowing if this site is stimulating, boring, interesting, effective, intriguing.. or... etc. So if you visit and or contribute please feel free to leave comments about the work or about the site.

Thanks for your time,
Amy

Hey, Amy. I can't speak for anyone else, but I really enjoy this site as an intro to the work of photographers whose work I haven't seen before. I tend, when I see their photos here, to go to their Web sites or blogs and, if the spirit moves me, post comments there, where I figure they're more likely to see them.

Thanks for the kick in the ass :-) — and for all the work you do to maintain this site. I'll try to post some comments here as well.

Hey Amy, I'm usually not used to leave messages (maybe because English is not my language and I feel like I can't express myself how I wish to...). However, like Liz, I really enjoy this site and I'm visiting it regularly.
Thanks a lot for all your work! I will try to share my opinion from now...
All the best for the exhibition "A New American Portrait", at Jen Bekman gallery. I wish I could see it!

Maybe the reason people tend not to comment so much is because as Photographers, we are mostly visual and not necessarily all verbal. you know, a picture is worth a thousand wordls....yikes , how cliche but its kinda true in a way.
To be a Photographer, our real weakness or maybe our real purpose is , the idea to see our pictures published in some form or another.
Editors prey on this and know thats why we choose to take photos.
hey, it was sweet to see you at the Dear Dave event. so glad the summer is starting and not ending.....

Point taken, but to facilitate commentary perhaps you could pose an issue or raise a question concerning your chosen group of photos- that way you could eliminate Flikr-esque type critiques...

All points taken...
I'm not entirely sure what I'm looking for as far as comments/crits/etc..
I have no idea if folks are looking at this site sometimes and I wanted to throw that out there. I have been involved in intense crits for the past couple of years and maybe felt the need to step out of my own opinions and just post work by people that were excited about making work.
I just want to invite people to leave their thoughts in case they were shying away from doing so.
And yes... flickresque critiques are the last thing I want.. so no worries.

Hi Amy,
I really enjoy this site you've put together. I've been able to find many interesting photographers and appreciate the opportunity to show my work alongside them.
Thanks,
Carina
