Default What is TE for you?

Just curious what members, old and new alike, think about what TE means for them, today, yesterday and now.

Let me start with mine:

"Its a place where I post, I thought, my best travel photos, only to find out they are not...:>"

"So it also becomes a place where I get to think whether my shots are good enough or not"...and...

For me TE is forum to share impressions from the different countries of the world, to learn something about other cultures. Second I would like to learn about improving my pictures and it is a forum to meet friends, to exchange experiences about photograpy.

Yes, I agree with you John. First Trekearth meet here in Manila with arvinino and Bruno40 was a good experience and we are still waiting for the right moment for the next meet.

Much has been said behind the new and old TE. The site's service is based on the people who runs it and the technology applied. There has been many opinions and concerns regarding the ease of use primarily and the unending issues we all know about. I believe that the people concerned should be as dedicated in giving the community and its members the best solution from start to finish.

I have browsed through a lot of photography related sites and choose to sign up with TE during the transition period. I like browsing through photographer's eye how he sees the world. The variety of works from different people, from a mix of bad to mediocre to exceptional works all for the love and enjoyment of photo enthusiasts and pro alike.

I didn't have any knowledge in photography, I like capturing images 'as they happen' like a snapshot, I don't specialise in just one thing or haven't thought of it yet. It's good to look at images from different [genres], people and culture. Here in TE you get fresh look at images and learn things from the photographers. Though I'm not as active as other members, I take notes on expert advise, shooting techniques, read the forum exchanges , opinions and the members that makes this community. Their shared stories, daily life, culture and events that I enjoy.

and...yes it also becomes a place where you know where your images stand [technically].

TE means a place/site where I can post my favorite pictures that I take either traveling during my vacations/holidays/weekends or on business and even at my hometown! I do it so because not everyone enjoys seeing my pictures (friends that are not interested in photography), so here I can find people who loves photography and therefore, they are all interested in pictures (and most of them in traveling too)! By doing this, I also get a feedback on the quality of my pictures! Compliments are very welcome and good for the ego, but criticizing (hints) has also helped a lot in the improvement of my techniques/equipments and so forth! I also love seeing good pictures form all over the World and I love doing it too!
All for now,
A great weekend for everyone!

To me, TE is an intimist community where a lot is being shared apart from pics.
And it's not only sharing pictures, it's sharing photography techniques & life experiences. There is a lot of affect in the pics, the notes and comments here.
About the posting side:
I feel there are moments to get inspired, others to take pictures, some others to post process them...and moments where I want to share something. I select carefully the pics I post and try to give them a second life around a storytelling note.
About the viewer side:
When I go on vacation somewhere, I like to see TE members pics and notes. It gives a good first sense of what's going to be the trip. I can get great hints of things to do or even to avoid...things that are not necessarily in guidebooks.
When I stay home, I like to continue my journey through others' treks and get inspired by their pics.
To me, critiques/comments are meant to be constructive, that's why I usually spend a lot of time writing them, resulting in being like this post....very long :))
