Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few questions that I have been asked about the Photo Reviews.
- Why do you not accept Watermarked Images?
My purpose for photo reviews is to help new photographers to learn and improve. I know new photographers often are intimidated or self concise about their work.

- By submitting my image(s) does mean I lose control of my copyright?
GREAT question and that is easy, ABSOLUTELY NOT !!

My method of providing feedback is first I want to encourage you not discourage you. But I also will give solid input based on three criteria
