All I'm saying is, why take a photo and share it if its not the best you can do? Why take a photo if you're not going to put in an effort to make it a great photo worth admiring? Why do anything if you can't admire it and be proud?

You can cry "Beginner!" all you want, but it isn't an excuse. There is a difference between someone who has just begun taking pictures and someone who is beginning their photography practice.

Like I already said, The photo posted was not a bad photo, but it also lacked any quality of being a good photo. If you don't want to hear someone else's opinion then please leave the internet lol It's not all butterflies and rainbows and it never will be.

On a completely unrelated note, PLEASE TRY TO UNDERSTAND HOW DEPTH OF FIELD WORKS BEFORE YOU GO BLURRING YOUR PHOTOS IN POST.

There's coddling and constructive criticism. Most people want to be coddled unfortunately. Great shot...yadda yadda.
Thanks for supporting me on what I posted yesterday!

Any non-poisitive comments here seem to be taken as an asshat/douchebag/hateful comment.....
