Now, why would you think about such extremes?

But HellwratH guessed it right since he and I have seen it before in another photography forum. Many people don't handle criticism well. This is exactly why we stopped moderating the Auto Image thread.

Critiquing is a very dicey area, each person has a different idea about composition. Personally I am very wary of giving critique unless it is specified solicited and I am sure that the person will take it well.

Generally contests are a very good thing to challenge oneself, to constantly experiment and achieve better composition. However, both critical judging and reality TV style voting can leave the participant disappointed. Since the participant profile can differ from noob to top-professional, it would be very difficult to have a common understanding about composition and technique. Therefore, I don't think we should make this one a contest.

Criticism is part of growth, be it good or bad. If nobody comments about my photos (I may not have even half a dozen photos here!), I realize others consider me as a learner of photography techniques (which is truth) OR my photo is too simple and ordinary, there is nothing to write home about ! Whatever is the after-effect, photos from people like me are, fillers among professional posters ! It also might remind our seniors, how they were years back.

On the subject of daughters, here is mine. Pic has been post-processed to get a posteric effect. Comments and brickbats are always welcome.

Often critique is solicited without any serious attempt by the snap-shooter. Here is an example where my comment was explicitly requested since it was too amateurish for expert comments, no I am not kidding.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shift...tml#post705384

And I gave it honestly and he too took it well. Not everybody takes it well.

Another case: https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shift...tml#post864725

If you just go through this thread from the begining, you will see that often critique is asked and given. But in many cases, the composition attempt is rather casual or non-existent. If you want to write a book, you have to bother with grammar, the structure (introduction, plot, storyline, developing the characters, climax, ending, etc), spelling, etc. If you don't know, you have to learn how to do it. Once you put significant effort in the right direction, then you can ask for critique and feedback from peers to correct mistakes. Tips are useful for incremental improvement. Once you get your fundamentals right, then you can develop a style, break the mould, etc. That is what TG has been doing these days.

Instead, if you splash a paint bucket over the wall and ask "Whadayya think?", there is nothing much to think or reply.

The best and the most effective feedback I ever received on my photography was this: You have no clue about photography, do you?

I think I haven't seen many cases where people have taken a criticism negatively on this forum. What has really been an issue is the removal of the picture. The whole point people put it here is to let others see what they captured, removal takes away that opportunity.

In the very initial days I had put some pictures from auto show assuming anything that had an auto in it was meant to be in auto thread. After removal I didn't bother to put them anywhere else because I had lost the links (we were still using imageshack at that time), and there were too many of them to upload again.

Personally, I think criticism will not be a big issue was long as the images remain on the forum.
