A much better place for critique is http://www.naturephotographers.net/index.html
Doug, with respect to you, wouldn't it be more pleasant perhaps to suggest
something like "another useful place for critiques is ..." ?
Or perhaps "in my opinion
, a better place for critiques is ..." ?
My normal rule of thumb is to disregard (most) negativity in forums but I feel your blunt dismissal of this place as a venue for critiques is jarring, and out of step with the usually positive and supportive vibe we'd expect to meet here.
If I submit a photo
for comment and criticism then I'll welcome all responses whether positive or negative relating to my photo, but I wouldn't welcome short bullets like yours which surely(?) undermine my decision in the first place to recruit this Forum's members for constructive feedback
Or have I just been bitten by a Troll ...
