PE: Giving and Receiving Quality Feedback
Giving and Receiving Feedback
One of the most useful things on deviantart is the option to give and receive feedback. There are different kinds of feedback. This article aims to inform you on how to give quality feedback and hopefully receive it.
Types of Feedback
One of the quickest ways to interact with others. From journals, to forums, to art, to profiles, comments are used everywhere. However, the quality can range from spam, to constructive.
Any deviant can write them,(~,*,=,`,^ etc.) but only premium members can request them. Constructive comments can substitute for these. Critiques take some time to write, and really provide insight. If used correctly, can be a wonderful way to give/receive constructive criticism.
This is important to receiving feedback. If you give, you are l

Theme of the Week: Nature Macro - FeaturesHello again members! It's Caedy and I'm here to showcase this week's (or rather last week's theme of the week) features. This by the way is volume SEVENTEEN!

Know your photo rightsHey everyone! How are you all?
Whilst sipping a cup of tea and pondering what to write for my next journal, I remembered something that happened to me a few weeks ago. I was at a local nature reserve, photographing the beautiful bushland and exploring the landscape - when I noticed some people bush-walking a few meters away. Without thinking, I snapped away and thought they added a very interesting element to my photos, enjoying the peacefulness just like me.
A few minutes later, a man noticed what I was doing and came over to me in a gruff, and asked me why I was taking his photo! At first I was stunned into silence, but then I smiled warmly and told him that I thought the landscape looked so amazing, and capturing people enjoying it was just purely incidental. I felt like I was almost bracing myself for his angry response, but his face softened and he asked me if he could see the photos. Of course I flicked through my camera to show him, and quite obviously you couldn't see any of th
A Little Mash-Up FeatureFirst, I just want to thank everyone who sent me recent messages. I really am a huge believer of positive thinking when it comes to health. And I truly appreciate it. My apologies for not being so active in the last month. Well enough about me. Let's get on with the show!!!

Want to be featured? *CLOSED!*Hello everybody!
Time for random feature! I'm going to feature : The first 100 people to make a comment and fav this journal. It's going to be one feature per spot and the art will be chosen by me from the spot winner's gallery.
Let the game begin!
Remember, you have to both fav and comment in order to be featured. I'm saying this because 2-3 people did only one or the other. Be sure to do both.
*Damn, I'm having trouble keeping up Sorry if I missed some of you guys but everything is fixed now. Oh and just to be clear : I won't feature art that is breaking deviantART rules or artists that are straight up art thieves
Due to size restrictions I had to split my feature in two journals :
Features 1 to 49 are here : http://sc1r0n.deviantart.com/journal/100-Features-1-1-49-279879992
Features 50 to 100 are here : http://sc1r0n.devian
Obscured Photos: Features .85ObscuredPhotos is a photography group dedicated to exposing obscured (unknown, underappreciated, etc.) photography. It doesn't matter where you are at in terms of skill; if you are underappreciated and you feel you deserve more recognition, you've come to the right place!
This article features all of the deviations submitted for our Themes of the Week. Feel free to have a browse! You never know, but you may find something you like.

Drops II by emptymemories321
Beautiful work everyone.
To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been
but now you're conscious
and it starts again--
the pain, strong and steady, in your chest.
You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome
but you take it as a reluctant gift--
a new distraction from the feelings awake in your chest.
Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
IowaIf you visit Iowa,
you'll call her fields empty,
but she wasn't born that way.
A part of her was carved out
when she was ripped between Virginia
and the purple mountains of New Mexico.
Her gold hair, she tore it out when she realized
it didn't make her a princess.
She laid her locks strung along every road
leading somewhere else.
White hairs on her cheeks
are scars from winter.
Her hair darkens with the dampness
of summer rains.
The storms are never silent,
but neither is life when there's a tear
in your childhood where
a parent ought to be.
I've been flooded by Iowa's sorrow.
The only way I can distract her from her own voided landscape
is if I hate myself harder than she cries.
She just wants to fly
and I want to bus or train,
not because I fear death, but because
I want to take living slow.
It's the only way I ever feel.
From the air it's hard to watch Earth's hips move.
But Earth can't compare to the country.
That's my girl.
Full grown even when harvesting season's j
