The popularity contest that is deviantArt sometimes puzzles me beyond belief.

I've just completed my first (of three) years of a Bachelor of Photography degree. My creative work, concept development and technical skills have all taken a massive leap forward. I did very well this year and I'm really proud of some of the work I have produced. Feedback was incredibly positive and it is likely that I will be looking to exhibit prints of some of this work shortly.

So I decided, after a busy year, that perhaps I should post some of this new work on dA. Funny thing is that the response has been virtually non-existent and some groups have declined my work. While this is not unusual(!), I'm astounded at the reaction is some instances. I'm not a great/brilliant artist and I still have a lot to learn, but I have learned a lot about critiquing the work of others and know that my own work (in many instances) is of higher quality than some work that is being accepted by these same groups.

This may sound egotistical, that is not my intent. I'm just disappointed. I wonder if I should even continue to post work here.
