Default Increasing the rating

I am a member of TE since 2004, but my rating increased very slow. While other member...'cute'... grow faster in relatively short. How can I increase my rating?

perhaps post more often - 30 photographs since 2004 is not so many so you will drop off peoples radar in terms of others taking an interest in your work and progress as a photographer......

Maybe I'll be a little bit rude... but at least I'll be honest.

Before, I thought that rating do matter but now I think that it's completely irrelevant. I'm taking photos for myself, to express myself and to show a part of my reality to other TE members. It's nice to get some points as long as they go hand in hand with a constructive comments.

I've seen dozens of poor photos which got 60 or more points... Photos that neither contained any interesting subject nor were of excellent quality. So what? Nothing... should I pack my things and leave TE just because people don't appreciate my photography? No... because I've found some friends here, people who give me advices and appreciate my photos, who know how to criticize me in a constructive way and who help me to learn new things... And for them, I'll stay and I will keep doing my work...

If you want to get better rating - comment as much as you can and post postcard-like candy landscape photos... But is it really what is photography about?

Best regards

Pawel

Yup :) Bushes at the sunset will do fine. Bushes at the sunset and some cute animals during the holy act of procreation ;)
