This section is under review. (20.3.09)

The Dyxum Themed Views forum is for themed threads containing member photos.

All members are welcome to create new threads and contribute to threads created by others. Some ideas for themed threads are:
  • Show me your <rural farm scenes>
  • Photos from <Tanzania>
  • Photos from <my recent workshop>
  • Let's see some <portraits>

If you like to post a lot of photos, think of a theme and post them in a single thread. Open a thread on Tuesday with plans to add photos to it every day over the next couple weeks ! The basic idea here is to reduce the total number of threads without reducing the total number of pictures, and doing it in a way that makes the forum enjoyable for all members to follow and to participate in.

Consider giving pictures you post to Dyxum Views a title or name to make it easier for others to refer to them in their replies.

When posting comments to these forums, please consider the value of your reply. If an image really strikes you and you just have to say "wow - that's nice" then please do. After all, this isn't the Critics Corner forum, and no more is expected. If you find yourself saying "nice photo" several times a day, you might want to consider cutting down on those replies. While everyone likes to hear good things about their pictures, threads end up getting bumped in the "active forums" view and people click on them to see what's new - only to see that someone said "nice". Some members subscribe to email updates of threads and an excessive number of low content posts won't be appreciated by all. Consider "batching up" your "nice picture" replies and instead of posting it 6 times, posting something more substantial in reply to one picture ... Again, the intent is not to discourage active participation, but to encourage participation in a way that makes these forums better for everyone !

Be mindful of members with smaller and lower resolution screens and keep size of images under control. The suggested size is no more than 1024 pixels wide and no more than 900 pixels high.

Remember the Sample Images subforum in the Lens Talk Area, too, if the reason for posting a picture is to show what you can do with a given lens!

Also, if you're interested in having a photo critiqued, please see the Dyxum Critics Corner forum (read the guidelines first).

NB: to respond to a post use either a reference to the title of a pic, its number, or "@ xxxxxx"
