Hello and welcome to Striving Amateurs.

Check out the Post Your Best Photo ongoing thread! We'll keep this going and now and then highlight ones that catch our eye or stand out.

There's some really nice shots flowing into the pool - why not take a nose around and give some a comment :o)

This group discussion is for members only.

Group Description

Welcome to Striving Amateurs.

This group is for both amateurs and professionals alike; the idea is to encourage sharing of technique and constructive critique and be a friendly place to post your work and get some feedback.

Feel free to post any (safe) photos you have, especially one's where you've explored a new technique or method whether you're learning or consider yourself to be an expert in the area - its good to share!

The discussion pool is open for anyone to start up their own topic so if you have something you want to chat about, go for it! Please feel free to invite people you respect or admire as flickrites to the group and if you're interested in helping to promote and encourage the group to flourish then check out this discussion and you could become a moderator: click here

Please comment on other peoples photos and if you're using Firefox and have Greasemonkey installed - check out the Flickr Buddy Icon Reply and Flickr Refer Comment scripts.
