several feedback channels help

The problem with dpreview as "edispics" said is that the dpreview forum members are a special crowd which tend to drift in one direction.

In germany there is/was a fotocommunity - years ago, photos posted there had to have a FRAME. If there was no FRAME then the photo was downrated. Also if the image was not tilded.

Here in dpreview is sometimes the tendency to allow only one object/subject in a photo. If the photo is not totally easy and has 2 or 3 things in it, then the 1 or 2 things "to much" are DISTRACTING. Except they are blurred with EXTREME SHALLOW DOF, because EXTREME SHALLOW DOF is good in dpreview ( except if you are in the current Olympus SLR forum where the trolls left towards the m43 forum )..

The described problems are not always the case, but the tendency is there. But there are also some useful comments.

So its best to have multiple feedback channels.
