This is a solicitation of sorts, for article ideas and even reviews, shoot-outs, comparisons, etc.

Not that we don't have our own list of candidates, but what do YOU want to see? As you know, we take feedback and the user experience very seriously - and want to make La Vida Leica a great source of information for everyone.

I do not know if you have enough members on board yet, but a real critique forum that actually works would be nice.

A fine idea! We don't have that many members yet, but are gaining more and more every day. We certainly do need more photo sharing forums.

So here's our first, courtesy of jaapv: the Photo Critique forum!

How do you propose we make it "actually work?" Obviously, keep responses on-topic and with the intent clear to be a "critique" or other constructive remark...

There's also a new Share a Photo forum. Just for sharing a photo (or several) and for no other reason than "because." :)

Make it clear that it is meant for critique, not for vapid "nice shot" comments.
Maybe collect a group of respected photographers to comment constructively.

Adding a showcase forum is a good idea. Not everybody wants to risk having his shots pulled to pieces.

Indeed. That's some good stuff, jaapv. Thanks again for the feedback.

I've set up a "Forum rules" block atop that forum that spells it out (as well as in an introductory post in the forum). I like the idea about a "respected photographer" group. Once we get more members, we'll see about setting up such a group as I think that would be great. Anyone care to volunteer to moderate that forum (besides myself)?

I've added a Share a Photo forum as well, for general sharing without the threat of imminent critique... :D

You know what? We're taking it up a notch. This IS a site about PHOTOGRAPHY after all, right? :)

Introducing the Images and Genres section, for sharing all sorts of photos!

Some recent changes, updates, new stuff:

  • Since certain sites like to poach our stories, it's only fair we turn the table. We're now covering rumors in the Leica world and expanding our coverage of news/stories. ;)
  • If you do not upload an avatar, you'll be given a default, anonymous gray one automatically. Maybe this will shame folks into uploading one... :P
  • Languages. We've added five languages to the forums here, for presenting the interface in YOUR langauge.
  • More information! We just recently posted the Overview of the M System article to bring you more, in-depth information and reference material.
  • Monthly Challenges! Each month we'll bring you a new challenge (as decided by other forum members and open to all). Interpret as you will - you've got one photo to express your vision.

Keep that feedback coming, folks!

But the gray avatar is a pretty good likeness of me!

Instructions on how to do some different things would be nice.
Like depth of field, focus tricks, lighting, night shots, etc etc.

That's what I was afraid of... I might have to make it one of those hula-girl bobbleheads instead... :D

As for instructions, that reminds me - we now have a Techniques forum for exactly that!
