I agree. This is open for photographers of all levels, so not everyone is going to be at the same level of expertise. Not only that, but photography is relatively subjective. There is a lack of understanding and tact in answering a question about preparing an image for print by answering it's not worthy to print.

Having said that, critique forums aren't for thin skin. But if I were to criticize one of my violin students too harshly, they will easily become so disheartened and just quit. Both are complex skills that require tremendous amount of practice, mentoring, and a healthy dose of natural talent to become adept.

You can express an opinion but that opinion may or may not be a good for building up the photography community.

I agree with this.
Is a forum so we can learn with out the fear of being burnt to death by the " PROFESSIONALS".
keep shooting and posting.

There was no animosity in either of our statements so how is it that we are suddenly now guilty of being mean and disrespectful? If either of us felt there was something to be done to improve it for printing we would have said so.

True, there wasn't a DIRECT insult to the OP, such as "Your photography sucks, you should give it up"

Everyone now has to be so careful to word everything just so. We have to word things in such a way so there is not even the remotest possibility of being construed as being disrespectful.

I hate how PC the world has become, but I'd bet that most here consider this community helpful and insightful. Whether your opinion is accurate, or mean-spirited, either way - it isn't much help.

Freaking grow up. This is a perfect example of truly making something from nothing.

It's nothing to you. Could mean alot to the OP.

Going against my usual MO, I'm going to chime in on this and elaborate on what has already been said. The OP clearly states, "I'd like to print this photo..." and we have people essentially telling him his work isn't worth the paper and ink that it would take to print it. Even worse, this coming from users with 2000+ posts towards a new user with 2 posts. Sort of like telling a 1st grader that their artwork isn't good enough to be put on their own refrigerator.

In regards to the image and printing, my recommendation would be to use the soft-proofing feature of Lightroom to get an idea of how it will look when printed. The contrast and saturation can be quite different when soft-proofing (simulating a print). Adjust the settings while viewing in the soft-proofing mode and be aware of severely clipping the highlights, blacks and individual color channels. Here is a link to a website that gives brief instruction on accomplishing this... http://www.tipsquirrel​.com/soft-proofing-in-lightroom/ (external link)
