I think people need to ask...
In reply to tedolf, Jul 27, 2012

When I ask for feedback, people give it honestly. Threads like the Sunday Bird are great for that. Then keep a stiff upper lip because some folks don't mince words, but if you want to get better then imo it's the burden of the picture poster to solicit feedback. Why, because many people (even often those to ask for feedback) just want reassuring and a little pat on the back. They don't know how to handle honest criticism or sort honest criticism amidst the storm cloud of negativity and a critical nature that plagues our (at least American) culture.

Why don't you start a weekly "Honest Critique" thread if you really want to do something about it. Lay down some mutually beneficial ground rules like Richard does in the Bird. Stay consistent with your vision and make this forum the most helpful and informative on DPReview.

Cheers,
Seth
