I know many have mentioned this already in the recent past, and we've had periodic exoduses of long standing members here, but I have to vent.
I've been a member here since 2006. Generally speaking, I'd have to say this is my favorite photography related forum. I think we have mostly a great community here.
But the photo sharing section seems to get a little dicey when it comes to dishing out honest C & C...and I mean HONEST C & C, which I feel is a cornerstone in improving one's skills. I like to pay it forward because a lot of the folks here have helped me immensely in my growth as a photographer. But it gets frustrating...
There are those who can do no wrong with their photos and ALWAYS get the "You are awesome" comments.
There are those who can dish it out but can't take it in return.
There are those who get offended at any hint of criticism.
Then there are those who get offended at any hint of criticism then personally attack you in retaliation.
Sigh...time to move on?
