Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) entries
Posted By: Buddha Jones, 12-27-2007, 11:50 AM

Hello all! I am going to make this a sticky post in hopes that I can get all of you who have submitted pictures to the Pentax Photo Gallery (PPG) and have had them accepted please post a couple of them here and please link back to your gallery so we can see your work. We have so many incredible photogs on this site I am curious to see what Pentax considers your best work.

Thanks!

Great! Can't wait to see them once they're in.

I still have five in the waiting line, most were uploaded two months ago, and two uploaded this month.

I'm a bit annoyed at how long it takes to get a photo approved. The last one of mine that was approved took two months and several days to appear. I now have over 200 photos approved, most of them when approval took more like one month. I do not see what is to be gained from extending the approval period, unless it's a convenience to the administrators, who may want to be more leisurely.

This all changed when Ricoh took over. Mine have been long time getting approved also, the last two were approved after two months and two to three days.

Fewer people voting means longer approval times.

John, the instructions at the top of each page here says post your photos, not post your link. Would you do that next time please.

Not only have the times gotten really long on approval, they no longer seem to decline any photos anymore. Not sure what they are doing. They quit adding to the premier collection ages ago.

The problem is that most of the people just submit their photos but don't take the time to vote...

A couple of photos on my page

I have been admonished not to post a link, only photos - didn't see the instruction! At any rate here are a couple of photos. The first is of a couple of girls showing their fiesta finery at Helldorado Days in Tombstone, AZ. The pic of the pelican in flight was taken near La Jolla, California.

Thanks for posting the actual photos John. I really like the Pelican. Nice capture.

And you can put your PPG link in your signature, if want.

Every one of the photos that I have submitted over the years have been rejected. Also, it only takes a day or two to get the bad news along with their derogatory comments.
