Critique Section Rules
« on: January 06, 2014, 11:09:02 PM »
Hello PCI members,

The critique section is being setup to post photos asking specifically for suggestions or explicit comments. Please try to post more about WHY you like the photo or what do you NOT like about it. Make suggestions as to how it could be improved. This will not only let the OP learn but also make the responders learn a lot.



Summary of Rules / Guidelines

1) For the photographer who's posting the photo

- please do not post more than 2 photographs in each post so that feedback can be specific and constructive

- expect frank and honest feedback. Art is very subjective and there are bound to be a number of differing opinions. Its upto you as a photographer to identify the opinions which you feel are important and areas which you feel you need to work on based on the feedback that you've received

- if there is a specific area related to the photograph that you need additional inputs on,please state that clearly

2) For viewers giving feedback
- avoid one-liner replies like "excellent" "wow" "amazing" etc

- please give specific feedback

- please read this thread if you need some tips on giving critique -

Thanks for clarifying Doc. I would also request friends, not to post one liners like "Good" , "Awesome" etc. Please comment some constructive criticism.

Absolutely correct statements made by Lightwave, Admin in terms of photo critique rule, we must remember that someone had applied some amount of effort, money, time and knowledge to make it visible to the rest of world. We all would admit to create an image, nothing is beyond criticism but it is also true that every criticism doe not help the creator or rest of the people every time, but a few actually does. Hence, we all have to be equally creative and knowledgeable before putting down few words about someone's creation. Thank you. Regards, Prasenjit.

Giving link to a photo would not be a good idea people would like to see the photo in the post itself to
relate the comments.

You can better embade the photo from photo publishing websites like flickr.

is the tutorial on how to do it.

Best accessory of camera is 3" behind it,
And mine needs an upgrade. . . ;)
