Funny thing is that the place I see the most indifference or damning with slight praise is here, which to me says more about this place than it does about the quality or lack thereof of my photographs. Thus, my signature.

Consensus is the truth-teller. The norm is for people not to respond with a reply at all.

If you post images and get an above-average number of positive responses that's a good sign your images are appealing. If you post images and get just a few responses that's another sign that should be read as the images are less appealing. If you post images and get a mixed reaction that's not a sign the images are appealing.

When someone responds with criticism I am much more interested in what they have to say than 5 people responding with 'nice". There are very few people who last here long that are just out to be negative on all critiques, so I see anyone taking the time to be critical or offer critical advice as 10 times more valuable as they are actually taking the time to look at your images with a critical eye.
