It's my most recent photography that I am most interested in having feedback one, i.e. my greatest photo is always my next photo. I don't care so much about the gallery archive, it's there incase people like what I'm doing and would enjoy seeing more.
I agree with some of your points, which is why I made this thread a little while ago:
I felt I was getting LESS views of my latest images because viewers seemed more likely to just look at images on the main page rather than going into the actual gallery. I felt lots of great shots were being overlooked because they could get shuffled out of the way if one person were to upload five different angles of the same subject, or something along those lines.
But now with the return of the random images, I think anyone who would normally take the time to carefully view and comment on photos will be more likely to click on the gallery button and view all the latest images on the main gallery page.
In the meantime we all get to see images we may have missed the first time around and get treated to a constantly new selection every time we refresh the main page.
