I don;t usually get involved in this type of thread but I am compellled to do so today.
Seberri- you are out of line. If you wish to have a photograph critiqued, first be aware and accept that a critique can go both ways; and if you are indeed so knowledgeable in the arts, you must have goine through the critique process, both favorably and unfavorably many times. I will not go there further as I don't know you.
Secondly, we need always to kep RESPECT in our Luminous Landscape environment. This is why we are here, a mixture of all people, talented and less talented, all together, enjoying a space where we are all contributing or learning or sharing. It is not, NOT usual in my years of experience on this forum to have insinuations and irritating replies to the responses of other forum members- responses which YOU solicited!!!
Thirdly, it is quite inconceivable that this same person who posted a photo asking for opinions, should then edit the responses? I thought something had happened to the forum when it crashed as the thread was really strange, without the actual replies- unless the replies were done through regular emails as someone mentioned.
Last, as I don't believe this line of discussion should go any further on my part, I think that what you may be looking for is a forum like Pbase which is exactly what you may need or want, a place where people post their pictures and then other people who visit the site, post their comments and feedback. The comments I have seen and mostly favorable.
Luminous Landscape is something else, as someone said, it's our family cirle. Please don't interfere with its peaceful environment unless you are willing to add to its magic by your presence.
In my modest opinion, Art is the gift of bringing out what you have inside, not necessarily what comes out with a 20D.
