On MANY photo upload sites there seems to be a movement of people who are stating: "I am tired of just getting comments like: great, awesome, excellent etc ..."
They say THEY WANT A PROPER CRIT???????? OOOHH NO THEY DON'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll give you the example! I resisted for a long time, but this time it seemed genuine. So I put the time in and wrote on one image, that was in a group. On the one, that the horizon was skew and that is a big NO-NO in photography and that the sky was full of dust bunnies (BTW both VERY easy to 'correct' in PS), the photographer of the photo agreed however, I got ticked off by another one who thought the photo was AWESOME....
First thing I saw in the second one was that the photo was uploaded skew, then the subject, it was softened to death, had lost ALL its beautiful detail. It looked plastified... I gently asked why? And wrote that it had lost ALL its beautiful detail. The reply: I KIND OF LIKE IT! That is a communication stopper, if ever there was one? 
Then you MUST ALWAYS upload what you 'LIKE', and not give a shit about what anyone is trying to help you with, also STOP whining then about how you want to learn (buy a book or go on a course) and about the comments isn't that what you want? Well, some 'not so good photogs' are now giving critiques... the blind leading the blind! Good luck!
If you are NOT prepared to put in the care and love an image deserves, as does the viewer, why bother at all?
I am not going to waste my precious time any more and for ALL out there: if you want enemies: just give them the truth, LOL!

Thanks, Magda, (*_*)

PS: Agencies and Art sellers DO NOT WANT images that aren't perfectly cared for!
