    Another great show…. enjoyed your comments and ideas.

  2. As usual, nice info on the critiques. A lot learned (hopefully :-)).

    Are you guys really not including the rebroadcast in the giveaways????

  3. Johnny Dao says:

    Great show! I love watching your blind critiques.

    Hope I’m not late in my entry for prizes.

  4. John Content says:

    Loved your comments they were point on.

  5. John Swarce says:

    Great show, guys. Wish I could see this live, but I’m never near a computer when you guys are broadcasting. :-(

    You can throw one of those books or giftcards my way if you want (but I have Joe’s book)! :-)


  6. Rick Spitzer says:

    Love this format with critiques. How about picking a couple of topics for a show? Architecture, people, scenery, street scenes, wildlife ,or something else specific to compare different strategies on a topic.

  7. Lewis Johnston says:

    Here is a suggestion for the next round(s) of critiques- Have a theme for the submissions; people shots one time, landscapes the next, sports would be a great one.

    Keep up the good work. Love the shows and would love to have Tamara’s Envisioning Family book or Steve SImons’ Passionate Photographer.

  8. joseph Myers says:

    I’ve seen all three of these critique shows and think that this one is the best yet. I liked the variety of shots and the different types of issues. I also liked the the examples of correction that Matt did. You guys Rock!
