Smile Back to Flickr

I have been on Flickr for about two weeks and have 90 pix posted, mostly recycled RP stuff since they were ready to go on my hard drive. I like Flickr but do not feel it is a replacement for RP, at least not for me. But it is a very enjoyable alternative, supplemental venue to RP and my website. Each of the three serves slightly different needs.

I think RP is a good site for getting a lot of feed back. Despite its shortcomings it is still has the most critical "audience", between the screeners, the "hit" count (because the thumbnails are so small), PCA's, and the discussion in the forums

Flickr is fun because it is so user friendly and both the thumbnails and full size images show so well. For the enlargements the black background seems to work better than the gray that RP uses. But that is just personal preference. Flickr provides some "feedback", but nowhere near the volume that RP does.

And of course my own site is great since I can warehouse anything I want in an organized manner.
