    Hi Hubbers,

    I'd like some help with passing the Quality Assessment Process. Will you please give feedback on my Hub Abstract Art: Opinion Cart (must be signed in to view). What can I do to improve? Thanks!

    Images are fabulous, but do you have the permission to use them?

    The first one is from a clearly copyright marked website.

    You cannot take images that you find on the internet and republish them because you do not have the rights to do so. You could end up being prosecuted or a demand for payment for unlawful use. As an artist myself, I consider it stealing when someone republishes my work in order to earn money.

    Having said that, if you have permission to use the images then I apologise. You must make it clear that you do have permission by saying so in the article.

    What's an 'Opinion Cart'?

    The writing is difficult to understand, though I like your approach to analysing art.

    I tried to cite them from the official website by using the option of importing them but they were not being imported. Then I saw HubPages suggested me to download the images to my computer and then upload it directly from there. I did the same but I also mentioned the source names and URLs.
    Is this the sole reason I couldn't pass the Quality Assessment Process for my first article?

      Probably not, the writing *is* hard to understand. And what is an Opinion Cart? big_smile I'm still mystified. You don't need all those random italicised words and phrases either. If you refer to 'generation' then use the word in full.

      I can't understand your introduction. It makes no sense to me:

      "As newbies in this ever competing blogging world we start as the “collegiate” that are looking to share the opinions on the ever improving or not so improving topics around the world."

      Here's another random sentence:

      "Just the depth of the above two statements by a couple of youngsters is enough to translate the fact that we are always on the complex side and like to find solutions for those.."

      Could be written much more simply:

      "Those two statements illustrate how individuals view art from widely varying perspectives."

      Don't use over-complicated sentences; it does not mean your writing will be better. It just makes it more difficult to understand.

      Your biggest problem is that you cannot use those images at all - in any way, which means you have to find images you *can* use.

      Suggestions: if you want original art try contacting people on the Deviant Art site and ask them if you can use their work in return for a link back to their Deviant account or to their own website. Bear in mind you cannot include more than two links to the same domain.

      You can also try images in the Public Domain, such as are found on Wikipedia (making sure to credit the correct source - instructions are on the site). There will be lots that you can use.

        Thanks for the detailed analysis. I will certainly look into the matter and certainly work on it to make it a reading article. I am looking for the paintings that can be used in public domain platform without any copyright issues. I will try to modify this article and upload it ASAP.

    @ theraggededge: I too, thought the writing is difficult to understand, but didn't mention as it is art :-D
    Thought I would make  a fool of myself as art is a very delicate and provocative subject.

      I know what you mean, Pen. Sometimes I read stuff and at first I think I must be thick not to understand...  big_smile
