(I think that's who it was) of leaving comments on the first 20 entries I voted on, and trying to make them at least 20 words. It was really hard at first, but seemed to get easier as I went along. I usually don't comment on very many photos, because I can't ever think of what to say. This forced me to think of something. I think I'll continue the practice. Thanks for the idea!

Good work...not easy leaving comments you can feel good about in quantity. I commend all who do.

It is hard (for me) to leave negative comments.

But, I try to proceed them with a compliment. I think that takes a bit of the sting out of it for the photog.

Nice idea on leaving comments on the first 20 votes too.

I second fotomann_forever's wise words about balancing comments. If you are really trying to help people, try to relate. Giving only a negative puts people on the defensive and makes them less open to what you're saying.

I haven't been around DPC long but have decided to comment on anything that I rate 1-3 or 8-10. Then, if I feel inclined to comment on something 4-7, I can but don't feel obligated.

I know I would appreciate comments when I get low scores. Obviously, positive comments are welcomed, too.

Starting with the current challenges I am going to try to comment on 20% of Votes I cast. So in the Photojournalism II challenge there are 183 entries. If I vote on 20% of the challenge that would be 37 votes and comment on 20% of my votes, that would be 7 comments. If I vote a 100% then I will comment on 20% of my votes and it will be 37 comments.
This is the only way I can see that I can do my part voting and commenting.
