Yes well I have noticed two things, first is that most dA users don't actually look at a photograph because it is good, they do because it has a cat in it.¹ There is no sort of meaningful feedback, commonly you will revive favourites for the first couple seconds after it is submitted by people who favourite anything and at most you will get a comments that only says "Cute".²
deviantArt is simply just not the place for me to upload my photographs, I am not getting anything out of it and it is just too much trouble to upload them here with no return. If you still wish to see it somewhere (not that is is special in any way).
I will keep posting on my website
, and possibly a couple other places.
1. My submission with the most favourites and comments is why such big eyes you have
, which purely speaking is not a good photograph.
2. My photograph of a jaguar
, which I think is one of my better photos, simply has one comment that doesn't add anything.
