I think photographers who become unduly upset with negative critiques should not post their photos here.

Well Mandrake, if so many whose today aprove the criticism shall go back and see the responses they given when some ciritcs was made.

By the way photgraphy like a big manicome, where some time one draging and stone say it is a dog and you have to respect because he is insane
or not capable to recognize that is a stone. Photogrphy and photographers are alike the big manicome. Some time you don’t see the dog the photographer is draging.

I had never found a photographer whitout a litle of insanity include me, the advantage is that our insanity is not agresive or harzard to the rest of society. But if you don’t see the starts in surise or at mid day it does not mean that the starts does not exist.
Art is a distortion of reality , so is a grade of insanity and only insane people can understand art. Like or dislike you is a reality.
I recognize that I am one of them when I made bingo in the apreciation of certain artworks.
So take it easyWink.

If some of you still in doubt here an example of the Manicome of Art.Laugh

Silky… The photo is worth more than $4 million for the obvious reason that the horizon is straight.

Photography is a very subjective and personal art. People see things differently and that is what makes a forum like this so valuable. Critiques are a most valuable way to learn and improve. Good or bad you should take whatever you can learn from them and move on. It’s not about the attitude, it’s about the art. Sometimes we miss the message because we don’t appreciate the messenger. If someone comes to tell me there is a missile on the way, I’m not going to care how he tells me but I will act on the message! Anyone who has competed in photography galleries will have had their share of “bad and unfair judges”, etc. But you can’t let that stop you. I have collected many awards over the years with images that some judges absolutely tore apart. In the end, the only thing that matters how that image makes me feel! Criticism is what you make of it. If you don’t like it move on to the next. If it helps you then get to work and learn from it. Keep shooting!

That my friend is a very thoughtful comment. The best thing that helped me learn was being told that my shots sucked, AND WHY!

We often have an emotional attachment to our work, yes that is  a cute baby, but its your baby. You heard the thunder of the waves, you got soaked to the skin. A photograph is but one layer of a bigger picture, if we can detach from the smell of the roses and the haunting sound of the loon echoing across a mountain lake I believe we can better focus;) on the message our photographs are trying to convey.

Its easy to get the ooohs and ahhs from the Facebook crowd, and aunty Mavis will be thrilled with any shots of little Jimmy! If you want your shots to stand above the crowd, post em up and ask for critiqueWink

Post your shots and keep shooting
