Profile Surprise Visitor.
I'm not sure how your respond will be for this new feature, but I'm willing to give it a try and see.
This is a new CFC feature to get fast and effective promotional hits on your image just in few minutes. With no obligation, or commitment, or limit for whom you like to visit, this is like showing a good gesture towards any member in the group and not expect to get a respond in return. Be a generous person and show your passion to help other members and let this feeling flow from your bottom of your heart and that will earn you good results in return.
How it works:
1.Go to the members tab in CFC group and browse artists thumbnails.
2.Pick any member you like and visit his/her profile gallery and start promoting images by only VOTING on them (no comments, or social network tools, just fast and easy!)
2.Try to promote by voting as much as you can 10,20,50, or until the limit is allowed.(It's up to you) -
3.Come back to this discussion thread and post the name of the artist that you have promoted and how many images did you vote . (Be honest of course, this is very important!) You also can copy and past one image link to your post showing the most important image that you liked in the gallery.
4.In return, if that artist wishes to promote you back that's great, if not, he/she will choose another artists to surprise visit the profile.
5.You don't have to see who was the last person who was promoted, no names to chose from, it's totally flexible whom you like to surprise visit in any time and how many times during the day or week or month. Just pick your artists and SURPRISE him!!
Benefits of this feature.
1.Members will interact more quickly with each other, and introduce themselves to other members effortlessly by knowing their art style while visiting the gallery.
2.The surprise visits will keep that member happy to see getting bulk votes on his/her image that will encourage him to do the same to others.
3.You will save lots of time in doing this type of promotion, no typing involved, just a simple click of the 'Vote' button you're done, then move to the next image..and so on.
*Any questions or concern, bring it here to discuss and post your feedback too.

I chose Bedros Awak from Northridge, CA this time! It occured to me they the admins work so hard in running these promotions that I'm not sure they get enough promotion themselves! I voted 75 of his pieces and commented + F/V/G+/FB a couple of them. This artist has some of the most advanced Digital art skills I've seen. This piece is my favorite of his, It is a photograph but his digital skills have turned it into a work of art! Beautiful!
I chase regina williams for a xmas gift of 25 votes. She has some amazing artwork. I voted for many of her tasteful nudes, which unfortunately are prohibited on most group discussions... here's a family friendly photo of hers that i especially like...
I repaid the surprise visit to Alan and Marcia Socolik of Henderson , NV. They have a wonderful array of scenic photography. There are a couple images that look to have been inspired by Ansel Adams which is my all time favorite Photographer. I voted on 40 of their images and commentedalong with G+/F/FB/V a couple! This is one of my favorite images from their collection!
I like to express my thanks to Regina Williams for promoting me. Now I got her with surprise visit to her gallery and voted for all 61 artworks there.
I was totally amazed to see Regina's style vary between still life photography, wild life, landscape and nude capture and between her capability as an digital artist enhancing photos to add new dimension to them.
Needless to say, I found difficulty to chose an artwork as best, because all images are overwhelmingly amazing. but this one was my top choice!
happy holidays to nina prommer. i voted for 25 of her photos. She has an interesting collection ranging from street signs to landscapes and lots of fun photos in between . This one caught my eye right away...
I've surprised Joan Carroll of Fort Worth, TX by voting all 22 of her floral images and 7 of her barn images. Her work is very inspiring showing the true beauty seen with the naked eye through her photography, the detail in her images are truly incredible. This is one of my favorites from her barn album and this is one of my favorites from her floral album
thanks so much Regina! I kept wishing today that there were an FAA status line, sorta like FB, where we could post our status today. I would like to express my gratitude to m FAA family for all the support you all have offered in the last year. It has been an inspiration to me to keep moving forward, doing more, learning more, taking some risks. Thank you all!
Thank you Alan and Marcia for visiting my site. I just paid you a visit as well to view and vote for all your 89 picks; there were very few which I had already voted for and system did not allow me to vote again. Anyway, I truly enjoyed your captures from your travels through National parks, Italy, China as well as your digitally manipulated images.

Love the idea of this discussion!

I think Kimberleigh has a unique way of capturing what others over look . She has a great eye for composition which makes her art unique.
I enjoyed all her images but this was one of my favs!!
This time I chose Darleen Stry, She has a huge portfolio with many outstanding works! I had a very hard time finding a favorite as I loved them all! I chose this beautiful water lily. For some reason I have always been drawn to their beauty and she captures that perfectly in this one!
My first surprise visit in 2013 has been for Regina Williams. I love her galleries. There are a variety of pictures worth to visit and enjoy them. I voted about 25 being sure I'll be back soon. Here is one of most intereting ones in my oppinion:
This surprise visit is for Bedros Awak. No much more to say about Bedro's work. You all know how powerful are his graphic design skills, otherwise you only have to pay a visit to the galleries and will inmediatly agree with this. I voted for about 30 pieces and have chosen the following one as my favorite:
I visited the profile of AnnaJo Vahle and then lost count on votes. So, I voted enough so that I would know that it was more than 35 times, so I am saying that I voted 35 times. She has wonderful, well-executed paintings and exciting and whimsical photography.
Today I did my second surprise visit and it was a visit to Alexandra Jordankova's work, I voted on all of her 189 images. She has a great eye for wildlife, nature and people in general. A real pleasure going through her gallery, this photo below is one of my personal favorites of Alexandra's
I paid a visit to Hakai Matsu, voted for 12 pictures and loved all of them, They're either in Hong Kong or Japan and I chose the Sakura in Spring for one of the favorites because I have a soft spot for the cherry tree!
This time I paid a visit to Lenora De Lude gallery. You can find there several excellent paintings that truly makes us enjoy the visit. Lenora is doing a fantastic work! I voted for all her paintings (26) and here is one of my favorites:
Surprise visit to Kimberleigh Ladd's gallery. It is obvious that nature is close to Kimberleigh's heart. Voted on her entire gallery and g+ and commented on a few. This image was a total surprise as he was the last image in her work. What a cutie!
Visited Barbara McMahon's profile and voted and g+ her beautiful oil and watercolour galleries. Barbara, it was hard for me to select one image as
my favorite because I love your work but "Swan Nebula" is amazing!!!
I visited Elena Nosyreva's profile and found some amazing works of art!!! Elena, I love your abstracts and botanicals. I voted for over 40 of your works. I selected Transit of Vensus because I love the bold use of colours, textures and patterns.
I have visited Elena Nosyreva because of the great quality you can find in all her galleries. Also, Elena, in my oppinion, has powerful skills in designing beautiful collages but her captures and other images are all worth as well to pay a visit to the galleries. The following image is only a sample from the fantastic works youl can find there. I've voted for 42 images but I'll be back soon to vote for so many others.
