Are you still active on DA? Are you getting the same attention that you got in the past?
I know that my pictures are getting better (because they are, I wasn't used to get photoshooting with photographers when I got on this website, all my pictures were, like, selfies?), but regardless of this I get less views/etc than when I used to suck.
