Default Re: Does this place remind anyone of www.photoSIG.

I have visited photoSig recently and am impressed with the number of participants and quality of the work (after seeing some, I feel like hanging up my camera). However, these benefits, in my opinon, are almost detriments -- the fact that the site is massive (309,000+ photos, 3M+ critiques) makes it a bit overwhelming to browse. Also, a large portion of the work I have seen is heavily artistic/based on advanced photo techniques. While I enjoy that, I think you can get bogged-down in technique. TE is nice in that you get a sample of images from all over the world -- often from places you may not have had the chance to visit. Also, while of high quality, I think the TE work is more "down to earth."

Hopefully this site will retain its positive differences.
