Do you really feel people are that daft? Even when I stunk more than I do now I knew what sharpness or colors or even subjects were. There has to be something that they feel is nice, so shouldn't they say what it is?
Example, photo of a guy with a ball. "Nice pic, I like the texture of the ball"
As one who has done the "nice shot", I do have to agree. For the most part I have gotten awesome criticism here, only one situation was bad. But I would like someone to say why or why isn't it a good pic because that's the only way to get better. I truly believe I've gotten better by taking advice from people here, directly and indirectly.
For ME (and I stress "ME"), even though a thousand people might say my work is good, I never do think so, so at times it's hard for me to criticize because I feel I have no place to, if that makes sense. So I look at comments by others, and apply that to my work.
Just my 2 cents...
