The lighting looks good; however, she does not look "understanding", and I don't care for the background.

Attractive woman, so I hope you or her do not take my comments the wrong way.

I disagree, unless the lighting was intended to highlight the upper lip hair. If so, then good job.

lol...you wanted comments. That's a valid comment. Lighting should flatter your subjects, not the other way around.

You are right! Do you have any images or examples that show you're mastery of lighting
Or are you just happy to **** on other forum members because you can

Someone needn't be a master at something in order to point out a shortcoming in something.

Personally, I think posting a photo here should require a thick skin. If you're the type of person who'll remove a photo at the first sign of negative feedback, maybe you're a bit too hyper-sensitive to be posting photos.


Just shut up and smile...

You need to learn to separate critique of your photos from critique of you as a person. If you can't do that, photography may not be for you. You should be your own worst critic. It will make you grow.

Remember, what these guys said that insulted you wasn't that bad. They actually mentioned the problem with the image like the highlighted hair on the lip. That's constructive criticism.

You're lucky nobody came on here and just said, "I hate it, it's terrible". now those are the comments that are just plain useless.

You may want to consider extracting the best possible revenge against those who may make comments you consider inappropriate.

  • Forget them.
  • Without delay.
  • Completely.
  • No looking back.

A good dose forgetting not only denies them power over you but erases their very existence in part of the world.

This is a true statement, although the original "lip hair" comment could have been worded a bit differently so as not to sound cruel. I always welcome all comments on my pics and usually get little or no input from anybody, good or bad, when I post. I am my own worst critic though and would have no problem with any feedback, crude, rude or indifferent.

Suck it up princess.

You post a photo in a open forum asking for comments then have a hissy fit after someone critiques your work?

Kiddie playroom is down the hall few doors to your left.....don't let the door knob hit you in the ass on your way out.

Un friggen believable.

I would really like to see that photo now! Hahahaha

bw!

I would much rather get honest feedback letting me know what was wrong with one of my pictures than a cursory "Nice picture".
