opinions of Photos

When is it exceptable to Crit on other people photos.

Up to now I have agread with other people and added a bit of positve crit.
But when is it OK you jump in and add your stuff.

I am a new to this in some sense but I do see thing that I think. oooo
what if they had done this.

I am putting this out there as I want to put stuff but as a nuub would hate to rub someone up the wrong way.

Re: opinions of Photos

Go for it, I always welcome different opinions on my stuff, it's how we learn to improve our images, even if we don't always agree with the critique.
I think as long as you do a balanced critique, stating where you think something is good and what you think could be improved and why, it's fine. I know some people don't like people don't like it, but you won't upset me

Re: opinions of Photos

Thanks Graham
Will have a read through.

I am heavley critical of my own stuff so when I start producing new stuff will put it in to be critiqued. Any comments would be most welcome. I find comments like great shot on other sites a bit usless when I can see something isnt quite right but can't see what it is.

If I do put something. please see it from a novic view point and don't take offence.

By the way. Realy nice site. Easy to use and lots of info.

Re: opinions of Photos



Don't forget that most people like to get comments on their images and if you can add more depth, pluses and minuses it will be of a lot more value. Everyone is different and often what appeals to some will not to others and I think that everyone on here appreciates this.

Re: opinions of Photos

People who want in-depth critique on particular images will place them in the 'Photo Critique' forum. In all other forums, I would say moderate critique (by which I mean: not a complete dissection) is welcomed by most members; you can usually tell by the tone of their initial post as to whether they're inviting critique or not. If in doubt, go ahead and offer your honest and constructive thoughts ... certainly can't hurt

Re: opinions of Photos

Hi Fiztastic

Feel free to add any comments to any of mine. I like to know what people think - even to say they don't like it.

I don't think you need to be a photographer even to say you don't like / or like something about a pic - so dive right in if you ask me.

I've always thought of you as a little bit of a softie. ,, your always one of the first people to come to someone who needs a little kick. Back when I first started out on the forums here, I never saw a grave yard as a place to take a picture. You worked them over like a good farmer on the field. What came out of it for me was to try and find what I didn't see for pictures and work a little harder at it, I got a few kicks and when out in the field,,and some grave yards I sT down and studied. I always new from straight openness that I might get lucky and someone would say something that helped me and my mojo take pictures. Its all about asking for help in away. cheers if anything I learned to be a little better at communicating.

Re: opinions of Photos

thanks Boofers, I think ...... there is nothing i hate more than not having motivation and inspiration, so I will always try to get someone going...... and there is still nothing wrong with graveyards other than i think I am running out of them! someone once asked me if I slept in a coffin and kept bats for pets... no only snakes said I!
seriously tho. if its meant in the right way then critique can be nothing but good for your photography.......oh,,,,,,,,, and of course im a bit of a softie but shusht dont tell everyone it will completely ruin my street cred!

Re: opinions of Photos

I suppose the forum's only request is keep it polite....

Otherwise, if you dont like it, if you give a good reason, we all welcome that... especially if we are not sure ourselves?...

What I see in my own work is not always what other people see?...

Re: opinions of Photos

I always welcome any kind of comment; good, bad or indifferent - eldest's just been giving me a hard time on the latest photoshoot but she knows I *much* prefer her thoughts rather than platitudes

As mentioned, as long as the tone is polite then really anything can be said/suggested in the forums - and that people are entitled to their own opinions!

Re: opinions of Photos

No problems at all with critic. I often expect harder than I get. I also have some strong views and that may not come over easily with some, but I try to remember to make use of the emoticons to help deflect misunderstood nuances.

I feel the same way, after all the "invisible light questions I've asked".
