I don’t put work on RB to adorn myself with the ‘fabulous shot’ or ‘beautiful colours’ list. I want my work to be appraised by other photographers who care to share some of their views on my work.
Whilst I appreciate that RB has a ‘be nice’ policy – which I applaud – can we not be mature enough to accept critique from our peers?
I recently uploaded a shot of my neighbour’s kid Harry – it’s had around 30 views and bugger all comments. I’ve asked two of my favourite photographers for their view and they’ve both noticed that the hi-key effect I was attempting was too subtle and washed the image out.
Crikey… couldn’t someone have written that as a comment?
I’m asking for your opinions on having an optional ‘critique my work’ feedback mechanism that works in parallel with the usual ‘hey that’s great’ system we all know and love.
Frankly, if I’ve taken a rubbish shot or made a complete balls of using a process, I want to know that…
What do you think people?
Just a ramble about why we shouldn’t limit ourselves as artists to saying only the nice stuff.
