Giving & Receiving Comments

Isn't it a great feeling when someone takes the time to write a helpful, supportive or event positive yet critical comment on an image you've taken? Not only does it generate a nice warm feeling that someone has taken the time to comment but also provides useful feedback to the photographer.

Although I haven't received too many comments on images I know how great it can be when I do get it and will undertake to post a comment on 3 or more images every week in an effort to spread a little cheer to other photographers.

YEs, it is. I also do love to receive comments and criticism. It helps to learn and judge my work on fresh eyes, to see what I have not seen.

I totally agree with you, I usually take the time to write at the blogs, right now I have 3207 comments so far.

I agree that giving critical feedback can be received negatively. I was really thinking about positive comments. I see a lot of images on DT that I like but have rarely taken the time to tell the photographer that I like their image. I am trying to change that one comment at a time!

As Miraclemoments says, not everyone can handle a critique, even if it is constructive and written in a positive manner. I think this is a very very useful blog, because it spreads very positive vibrations! I have a suggestion for every critique-lover. There is a forum thread HERE. Maybe you should pay a visit...there you will find a very friendly environment with lots of constructive critique :)

Agreed....problem I have seen before though is that some people just can't take the criticism. I for one appreciate it. I had a person comment on some of my sheep images and it made me look at contrast in images again.

No problem with the English Andrew. I couldn't agree more. DT is definately a community.

Yes Mark, I totally agree with you. It should be a "must" because we are a photographer community that often try to do own best to grow up and hoping that own work has been appreciated before sold (sorry for my english!)
