I agree with all of this. ALL of it.

There's coddling and constructive criticism. Most people want to be coddled unfortunately. Great shot...yadda yadda.

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.

I honestly could care less how it sounds positive or not, don't critique the pictures and not tell me how to improve is all I ask.

The downfall of the governments idea of making the schools only have winners. No one is a loser, no does wrong, etc.

I'm hoping to go on a photo-spree tomorrow, so hopefully I'll have some good shots to show you all.

Its not that you don't post everything positive, its just the way you say it.. Maybe find a more pleasant way to say something rather than "you should never post that picture because it sucks," instead maybe, well I don't really like this and give them some tips on how they could make it better, rather than just bashing their work. Everyone starts some where and mostly just learn from other people and recommendations, so be somewhat positive and look at it as Im helping this person to become better at what their doing rather than eww this person sucks.... YA KNOW????




AND^^^^^ there are a bunch of people who don't post in this thread because of the unnecessary comments made...That right there should be a light bulb flickering in your eyes!
