    i havent been very active in there of late when i was at first. littlewolf's post did stir me up some. im not pissed lah, standards erode when u dont keep it in check, or if noone does.

    I dont want to make it like an elitist or something, but some TS are better off in e newbie corner. In the first place, some/most pple don't know which deserves c&c and which don't. bleah...

    Come on! Sometimes even you don't know which of your pictures deserve critique and comments or not too. Anyway, newbie has been posting in there since it's initiation. Well, maybe not so much then, when there were quite high standard shots abound. But still, they have been part and parcel of the corner.

    To me, it's not the post, but the critique. Critique tends to be too technically tuned that's it's almost laughable: crop here, underexpose there, would be better if such and such... I'm guilty of that too, mind you. But it's almost to the point where creativity ain't emphasized at all, and everything just become technical.

    it's a gut call i make. when i feel it lacks something, that it can be something better than what i have.... maybe i will choose wrongly and never put up an image for c&c 'cos of the call i made, then i will have to live with it. it's not perfect development, it's never meant to be 100%. that's my idea, sch of hard knocks. we will help, but not if u dont put effort in the 1st place.

    creativity, like style, is more self-explored. we can suggest a different angle, but to actually give exact directions is erh, impossible?

    CC... I have not been there for a long time myself... it began as a very good idea... then people begin to post anything there... post many many photos there... sigh... why can't they just choose one that they want help with and post?

    I think this is where we differ. I don't think it's the role of the critic is to set a certain direction in which the photographer ought to take, in order to "improve". Frankly, underneath most of the technical advice/critique that people have given, is the sense that the photo ought or should be shaped into this way or that. In fact, the act of just emphasizing technical improvement is depriving the originality of the work, or simply put creativity.

    Hence, while it's really hard to try and compliment or critique on originality, it should be a critic's role to emphasis just as much on this aspect, rather than thinking that it's sufficient to just talk about technicality.

    Commander Fox, under the Geneva Convention, you are obliged to stating just your rank, name and unit. Be strong, do not succumb to interrogation.

    No... not chicken and egg. More like triceps and biceps. One contract, the other relax. You can't have both extreme creativity and extreme technicality on the same frame. It has to be a balance, an interaction. One doesn't come before or after. Both are present at the same time. It's just how much of which...

    Phew! The "A" word almost came out liao... ...
