Posters and critiquers
7 months ago

I have observed on many of the forums such as DSP (one particular recurring thread) and Landscapes that there are individuals who post photos and are then very defensive about any CC, yet they love to excoriate photos of others who post. Then there are those who only critique (more accurately criticize) without ever posting photos of their own. Perhaps they are afraid of any comments their posts might generate I guess there are all kinds of posters on DPR, but I like to refer to this quote made by Teddy Roosevelt:

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."
