If you want to get your photographs critiqued, there are sites on the web to help you. Whether you are a professional, amateur, enthusiast, semi-pro, etc there are ways to find out how to improve the quality of your work. Many of them are free and great resources to help you. Here is a list of some of the best places on the web to help you get your photos critiqued.
Eye-Fi announced the availability of their new flagship Pro X2 8GB + WiFi SD cards designed for professionals. The card should make usage easier and faster while out there in the field blogging, shooting an event or even just uploading to Flickr. Complete with 802.11n Wifi, it should be very awesome and further speed up the workflow of many photographers. The even more awesome part is that once you fill up those 8GB (which is truthfully hard to do) the card will automatically delete photos that have been uploaded to the interwebs. For $150, this will be more than worth it for many pros shooting with D90s or 50Ds, and there are lots of them out there. Press release is after the jump; I’ll be trying to get my hands on a review item soon as Eye-Fi gear is highly recommended by me.

Some of those tips after the jump.

There are lots of symbols on your camera that you or people you may know don’t know how to interpret. Part of this is from not reading your manual.
