I don't visit this forum too often, but when I do, I feel like I see a lot of the same or similar shots over and over again--standard headshots, babies, seniors, families, etc. Now, I'm not saying that those kinds of things are easy to do and that there isn't any good work in here, but I think we might just be used to seeing it. I can imagine how that would affect the energy of the forum overall.
I agree with this too.
When I first started visiting the People forum a few years back, I expected to see much more diversity in the photos, including:
1. Travel photos (from ALL over the world)
2. Street Photography (it pops up occasionally, but not as often as I would expect)
3. "Artsy" photos showing people (and I don't mean lots of photoshop applied to smooth skin).
4. More photos from photographers who live in other places (I live in the USA, but seldom see photos here from Africans or Latin Americans or Indians etc.).
