im new in flickr....
a few photo i had uploaded...
well,i got no comment on my photo...
i try to think,maybe my photo is not good enough...
BUT i found that many ppl without a pro acc they dont comment by other...
i feel they had a good shoot ... so pitty!!!
on the other side,with pro acc,anyhow they shoot,they got comment!

flickr is pay to buy comment?curious to ask...

thank you!

Pro account really nothing to do with the amount of comments you get. You have to give your pictures more exposure, such as adding them to groups/participating in discussions/commenting on other people's photos will usually result in them commenting on your photos in return.

Your macro shots are quite good but I feel like the portrait shots are a bit too dark.

@ryuu_ka, I never heard or saw such thing. but my take on this is, how do you Flickr? if you treat it as photo site, it will be just like that, your photos against the world. they will be just there on the wall. some people will talk (comment) about it. but most people will just look and walk on, no matter how good your photos are.

treat Flickr as a community site with photo as a theme, and comment will come.

and sorry, cannot look at your photos yet, I'm on mobile with limited bandwidth. so in this case i'll look at photos of people I know first. so get out there and let people know you.

good luck !!

Usually comments are left by people that I've added as Contacts, people that I've corresponded with over on several forums for years. Some just like my camera hacks.

Few comments come as a result of posting to a group, or random selection. I would not be offended by it.

Some groups exist to have photo's submitted and critiqued. You might try some of those groups..

Having a pro account allows you to upload over 200 photo's. More photo's, more comments and no need to delete the older ones.

The key to getting commented on, is to have your images posted to many groups, and not just one or two. With a basic account, you can post an image to 10 groups, with a pro account, you can add it to 50 or some crazy odd number like that.

You work is quite good, you just need exposure on your work, the fastest way to do that, is to join many groups as you can for the work you like. Spend an evening, search out the types of photography you like, subjects you like, then join. Look at members there that are posting, and look at their profiles, join groups that they have that you may have missed.

I hope this helps.

yes...it takes a little while for people to find you...
i guess most pros have been around for a longer time....by the time they decide to go pro.......hence more comments... ;)
