I don't get it, I have put up this week about 7 photos and got so very little votes on them and no one had any thing to say good or bad. I'm getting feed up now and thing a lot of them are a group to just help one another now.. No, no sour grapes here just like ok this is just wrong now..

Jo, I've been here since September and my experience is that Pixoto is not a place for feedback, comments, etc -- it's not that type of site. Comments, when left at all, are typically meaningless ones that are posted only to earn the person a credit (you get a credit for every comment you leave, same as you get a credit for each duel you vote in). I probably get at least 20 "nice" comments for every one that was thoughtful.

I really enjoy Pixoto but I honestly could never recommend it as a place for anyone looking for a community of photographers to interact with, etc.

It's only my opinion but I believe the majority of Pixoto members are here for two reasons -- to compete in the duels, either mostly as a game, to see how well their photographs fare against others, or to try to win prize money, and secondly, to sell their work.

Well to be totally honest with you, that was me too, but I see trying to Win any money is crazy, that's a win for all of the real Pros, and I am not one... So I had to let that dream go, yeah to win a award does make me feel good ( sufferer with depression) but when I see how the ones get so many points and I know my photos are not that bad you get so upset and wonder about ppl today... Like I had said I'm no pro but damn I know my stuff is better then ok and should get more on the votes... Oh well

Jo, please don't take this site personally -- it's too unpredictable. I think all of us have had photos tank, only to resubmit them and find they do really well. I've submitted images that I wasn't all that happy with and had them do well too, much to my surprise. I've also had images that are very popular elsewhere and that I have had no trouble selling, and they don't do well here. Sometimes it just depends on the time of day, or the time of week, or who is or isn't online voting.........

Just treat it like a game, if you can :-)

if you want someone to critique your photo why not try this site:

I started here and learned a lot from it.
