Giving & Receiving Comments

posted on 8th of may, 2012

Isn't it a great feeling when someone takes the time to write a helpful, supportive or event positive yet critical comment on an image you've taken? Not only does it generate a nice warm feeling that someone has taken the time to comment but also provides useful feedback to the photographer.

Although I haven't received too many comments on images I know how great it can be when I do get it and will undertake to post a comment on 3 or more images every week in an effort to spread a little cheer to other photographers.

YEs, it is. I also do love to receive comments and criticism. It helps to learn and judge my work on fresh eyes, to see what I have not seen.

I totally agree with you, I usually take the time to write at the blogs, right now I have 3207 comments so far.

I agree that giving critical feedback can be received negatively. I was really thinking about positive comments. I see a lot of images on DT that I like but have rarely taken the time to tell the photographer that I like their image. I am trying to change that one comment at a time!

As Miraclemoments says, not everyone can handle a critique, even if it is constructive and written in a positive manner. I think this is a very very useful blog, because it spreads very positive vibrations! I have a suggestion for every critique-lover. There is a forum thread HERE. Maybe you should pay a visit...there you will find a very friendly environment with lots of constructive critique :)

Agreed....problem I have seen before though is that some people just can't take the criticism. I for one appreciate it. I had a person comment on some of my sheep images and it made me look at contrast in images again.

Very True and well said.

Yep, one place to do so is here :-)

No problem with the English Andrew. I couldn't agree more. DT is definately a community.

Yes Mark, I totally agree with you. It should be a "must" because we are a photographer community that often try to do own best to grow up and hoping that own work has been appreciated before sold (sorry for my english!)
