Hi one and all... I've created a poll to test a theory of mine about the Photographic trends and preferences of AP members ..
My subjects of interest include seascapes, cityscapes, landscapes, portraiture and still-life.
Over the years I've shot many other subjects, but I concentrate on the above subjects and rarely shoot anything else.
We're heading over to Africa in October, so I'll get to photograph wildlife, which will be a new experience. Imaging being twenty feet from a lion that isn't inside a zoo...
I have/do shoot all of the above, but landscapes are my fave, but it doesn't mean that it is all I shoot.

Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated
I imagine that most people shoot anything and everything, and eventually hone in on particular subject matter.
I like to shoot sport. Is that covered by Wildlife, People or Inanimate subjects ?

Two million years of evolution and I'm still a Homo ergaster.
Clicked Wildlife, but I do a lot of genre's and want to try some I've not done before.
Probably needed to be a multi choice poll

I voted landscape but like shooting everything really but can someone tell me want is Astro ?
I aim to be a `jack of all trades`.......and yes, fail miserably....but having fun trying . I did vote landscapes as my favorite and doing a bit of travelling o/s gives me lots of scenes that I will never get back to.
What, no gravy?
I prefer to shoot anything that lets me when it/they let me! That said, if I could shoot people all day, every day, I'd be one happy camper.
Trying to pigeon-hole AP members can be a frustrating pastime, Steve. Good luck with that!

the reason I gave only one choice is to try and see if my assumptions about the current membership is correct or not..its early days yet..but thus far its looking like I might be proved right...bit hard though if not all members vote
on the right track Rick...but not about comps..more to do with feedback and CC
Hmm I picked People but how do you just pick one genre, I love sport, I dig astro / low light photography, physiographs, orbs, burning steel wool, I also really like architectual and complex patterns, I love bright and mixed colours so I think this summer is going to particularly good. I love portraits and baby photos. I love more than anything to take a photo that captures an event a time a mood that has real meaning to someone and allows me just for a second to think wow I did that. If this is about feedback and CC you are going to find that there are some people who are willing to share and to guide. I have had some simple and yet amazing feedback from AP regulars, and I have taken on board their advice and my photos have improved. I guess this is one of the reasons I like photography, every photo I take is slightly different the subject matter changes the techniques I use to take them changes and over a period of time they tell a story how good is that.
i chose people as that is the closest to sport
Canon 6d, 7d , 40d, 100-400L, 24-105Lmm, 50mm 1.8, 28-135 and a sigma 18-200

Could have been multiple choice??? Most of us don't care what we aim at. As long as it looks good.
Honesty is best policy.
CC is always welcome

I have no interest in Landscapes at all... Its the tiny critters I love and the Birds all kinds of Animals really so its Wildlife for me.
My favourite subject is sport of any kind but motorsport is my passion.
