Oh I don't mind anyone's opinion honestly, good or bad. It's an educational process for an amateur like me, hearing from knowledgable people on something I love. Opinion is good, informed opinion is best. I never like showing my stuff to others but that has changed. My wife made me get a web site which I did but only as a way to store images. What I'm into is difficult whilst many are into different. Difficult and different is the best of the best. What I mean is the landscape shots I did the kiva is the most difficult and therefore the best. It's also different as it has the storm and only 5 minutes of dodging so its a photograph not photographic art a shot needing lots of photoshop. My animal stuff is ok but I love the sort of animal stuff i see on the BBC recently which set new standards of animal photography. I love street stuff but the best is the portraits in the major very dangerous demonstration with the actual or potential to go badly wrong, where most photographers fear to tread, photojournalism best of the best, difficult and different.
Me, I'll stick to being happiest at a race track doing what I do best.
