Brutal Critique Thread (Week 1)
Nov 5, 2010

Leave your ego behind when you post a pic in this thread. Your photo sucks, you suck, and we all know it -- don't pretend you're different than the rest of us.

No one is under any obligation to agree with any critique given. In fact, it's expected that the photographer will likely disagree with most of the opinions offered.

There may be mean spirited comments that are completely unhelpful -- ignore them. Don't get into a flame war.

The purpose of this thread is for the photographer to get those few gems of wisdom that may have otherwise gone unspoken for fear of hurting anyone's feelings.

If you don't want aspects of your photo commented on because you are already aware of them, then please list those aspects in your post and request that comments not be on those points. That said, don't be surprised, or upset, when that request gets ignored by some. Suck it up.

Here's a simple guideline that some may find useful when giving a critique:

  1. What does it say?

  2. How well was it said?

  3. Was it worth saying?

Usually, critiques focus on point #2, but point #3 is always the hardest to "justify".

OK -- let's have'em. Hopefully you'll learn something so you don't look like an idiot next time.
