    it's about the knowledge of the crtitiqued and the critique giver, not status. an experienced cook probably knows when food looks most delicious better than a photographer, an architect probably knows why a building is interesting more than a photographer. that's why photographers venturing into specialised fields are usually motivated to pick up more knowledge of the fields.

    say, a crude example, views from an average person shopping at orchard road compared to that from a fashion designer, can we say both views have equal weightage when asked to comment about a piece of fashion photography? the former's views appeal more to market researchers, the latter's views are more important for a fashion photographer. unless one says the shopper has more knowledge about fashion than the fashion photographer, not impossible, but rare.

    knowledge is the key, it's not a must. that's why a person with lesser knowledge can offer critiques, but the difference lies in the value of the critique.

    i'm not trained in fashion photography, and has little knowledge about it. if i offer comments to a fashion photographer, how much can i talk about?

    one more example, why didn't mediacorp get the marketing people of the company to be the judges for Singapore Idols? end of the day don't they want marketable idols?
