Critique Category/Section

I wonder if it is possible to have a category or special section for people who wish to have their work critiqued. Many of us are new at this and would welcome some positive constructive feedback. By the way, I think that some of the work here is amazing. I would often like to ask the photog how he or she got the specific effect but don't have a way (that I know of) to do so.

Lawrence, if you see a pic in an image duel that you like, you can comment on it under the image. Sometimes the person will come back with a thanks and then you will know who they are. That's when you can then, comment back and forth etc. at least that's what I do on here. If you want to know what specific they use in their shoot, they probably will tell you. I have asked a few myself and they come back with an answer. Good luck!

Thank you. I have only said things such as wow, beautiful, great, etc. I didn't know if asking was appropriate. I'll give it a try. :)

Oh, also you can look in your feed under your profile account and see who you are following, you can also make suggestions and repays there. I hope Pixoto didn't mind me answering you about what I do.

Also, Lawrence, there are many regular users here in the forum with photography experience who won't bite your head off :-) if you post a link to any of your images asking for constructive critiques. A lot of the times the forum is only filled with problems but there are many participants who welcome the chance to discuss photography :-)
