Actually, I have no expectations of anyone. And I do hope that all opinions are welcome here, as long as they're respectful of others.
As someone who isn't highly accomplished in photography, I don't find it useful when those who post say an image is great or terrible without elaborating, as it doesn't tell me WHY they feel that way and therefore, their post is of no value to me as I can't learn anything. Still, I see nothing wrong with such posts as long as they don't include personal attacks. There's enough of that in the world, without doing it here too. And I'm not saying you're doing this Ray...just a comment in general.
Because everyone sees photographic images (and the world too, of course!) differently, rather than saying something like "that image is boring" I personally would say "to me, the image doesn't appear very interesting" or "from my perspective, I'd need a foreground subject to make it interesting." The words "to me, it appears" comes before nearly every stated opinion I have about anything as, after all, all any of us can say is how something appears through our personal "filter" and I think that's what Anais Nin was pointing to in her quote.
For what it's worth...
