It's all about taste.
Taste differs from one person to the next, but one thing to remember when submitting to this group is that we value quality over quantity.
This is a club that celebrates the art of self-portrait photography/drawing, etc.
So we have to ask ourselves, what makes a good self-portrait?
* From a general standpoint, a "good" self-portrait is one in which we can see your face. However, this may not always apply, depending upon the quality of the piece.
* A nice, clear photography piece that has been taken in good lighting and with good taste.
- This most likely includes photos that utilize the rule of thirds (who wants to see inartistically cut off faces?)
* A photography piece that is not too busy in the background.
- A webcam picture showcasing all the junk in your room behind you is a good example of what NOT to submit.
- If you're standing in front of the Eiffel Tower and there's a lot of people around you, that's probably okay.
* A drawing/digital art piece (etc) that, to put it kindly, does not look like a 5 year old drew it.
Next time you submit, ask yourself if your piece matches most of these descriptions. This isn't about putting people down - it's about helping to develop your level of artistry so that you may become better at what you do.
So show us your best work! We want to see it.
