    I'm a new member and can give a new-comer perspective. IMO we need to limit the photos to 3, group them by member like before, and draw the names at random at meeting. That'll take care of the time-constraint/fairness aspects while making the critiques more cohesive.

    Also, critiques are really lectures that use the photos as examples. I've attended 3 so far and found the first (Bill Debley on 1/9) to be by far the most useful because of the insight/knowledge he shared outside of the photos themselves. E.g., if a flower was out of focus, he’d also talk of the concept of back-button focus. Winn Crafton in the last meeting mentioned monitor calibration (for over-bright images), but didn’t expand because of time limits.

    Finally, I suggest we go beyond the technical stuff (blown highlights/leading lines/rule of thirds/etc.) and cover other aspects like the meaning/purpose of the photographs, emotional impact, genre, etc. For this, I suggest we add a guideline to submit under a theme.

    I was unable to make the meeting at the last minute. With the new format, I think my pictures got reviewed without my being there. In the old format, you verified that the photographer was at the meeting before you reviewed the photos. I'd like to hear the comments, but if I submit the same photos again, the group will have to see them again.

    Well, is it quicker to critique five pictures of the Death Valley racetrack rocks individually or as a group? Could someone tell judges they have a minute per picture...

      Having a time limit to review the picture would work, not sure if it would stifle the reviewer. But how does the reviewer know that there are a series of (number of pictures) of the same subject? Should the reviewer then ask for each picture to be briefly projected on the screen before the reviewer gives his/her review of any of the pictures?

    I don't like the new format. Looking at stand alone photos is like judging them in a contest. If we see a larger representation of a photog's work all together, we can learn more. Seeing a style from several works helps us learn about composition, using light, etc.

      Having attended the January meeting which ran way too long, I like that Ken came up with a format where everyone gets at least some of their pictures reviewed, AND the meeting ends on time. If there is another format which will accomplish this and be fair to the submitters, then please suggest it.

    I hope that the photos shown will be grouped by photographer rather than being mixed at random.

    Will photos be shown as a random mix or grouped for each submitter?

    Always ready to learn more about photography. Hope to make one of your meetups soon.
