Been in CS for a long time with many posts
People who are good photographers themselves
Does not need to be a good photographer, but has a keen eye for detail
Does not need to be a good photographer, but has a keen eye for detail and friendly commenting
Does not need to be a good photographer, but has a keen eye for detail and very direct in commenting
Only 72 members polled. How many members does CS have? I am not sure.
A poll based on such a miniscule number of members have any meaning? Sheesh!
Anyway, just to use your way of calculation, here is how it goes!
As of now, 74.99% (54/72) of members polled said that a keen eye is important.
Of these 27.77% (15/54) said that being friendly is important
Of these 46.29% ( 25/54) said that being very direct is important.
25.92% (14/54) of these said that a keen eye is important, without any qualification. This group constitute only 19.44% of the total number of members who polled. If I assume that CS has a member ship of 2000, then this group only constitute 07% of total membership. Or if I assume Cs has a member ship of 5000, this group only constitute 0.28% of CS membership! In any case, this goup forms less than 1/3 of those who say that a keen eye is important.
Unfortunately this poll does not ask if the "attribute" of being crude and crass like you is an important or desirable asset. I wonder what the response will be if this poll ask how essential it is to be crude and crass like you in order to be a critic? The results will be most telling!!
This poll does not clarify what it meant by a "keen eye". Do you really have a "keen eye"? I can give you that credit. Credit for having a "keen eye". But "keen eye" for what? For looking at miniscule errors and imperfections! For picking faults!
Do you have a keen eye for good photographs? For vision? For imagination? Do you? Really?
What is the real reality of CS?
Go figure out!
Tear your heart out, if you have one!

Nobody says that giving a critique in the complete intent of giving a critique is easy.
A face-face critique is not necessarily easier because of the "stress" of a personal "faced-off" type situation. But it offers the opportunity of immediate dialogue between "seeker" and "critic", and can make for more effective critique.

I think I should get back on topic.
Who is qualified to be a critic? Maybe, I am, maybe, I am not. Maybe, I do have a keen eye for photography, maybe, I donít. Regardless, I know I am qualified. I based my critiques on strictly the image and the photographer, on my thoughts and feelings, and I own up critiques. They are mine. I donít need others to make up my mind, I donít need others to support my critiques. I stand by what I said. I am honest about what I said.
However, Dr. Chong, you donít qualify to be a critic. Not of photographs, nor of people. Your opinions are not yours, but those of others. Do you have any opinions of your own? Your need to quote others is pathetic. What you regurgitate I am not interested in.
Who are you exactly, Dr. Chong? Is that even your real name? Are you really the successful doctor that you portrayed? Let's assume you are.
Well, for someone as established professionally, you are damn insecure. You really donít have to, but I guess that is just a character flaw. I hope you are a much better doctor than you are a photographer. A bad picture is cause for sore eyes, but a bad diagnostic kills. However, they way you advocate learning, I am surprise you made it as a doctor.
I used to wonder, what cause this hatred you had for me. I had no idea why nor do I care. There is no reason for you to do so. But it really does not matter. You are entitled to hate me, I am entitled to react accordingly.
On the flip side, I really do not hate you Dr. Chong, you donít warrant it, not because you donít deserve it, but because you are too insignificant to do anything about. However, even a mosquito can get too irritating, that I bother to turn around to squash it.
This is not the first time we lock horns, nor the last, I assume. But it's getting to be a bore. Be more creative next time.
To the Mods and Admins. Sorry for the OT and the direct slamming. As I had told you guys, I donít start fights, but I will finish them when other forced them upon me.
c'mon guys.....just chill......
you can buy better gear but you can't buy a better eye
Now you are talking!
Finally you have the guts to face me!
First, do you dare to go back your nonsensical claims on the statistics you claimed that say that you are qualified to be a critique?
Do that first!
State in specific terms!
Excellent. Now stay on course!Originally Posted by DEADPOET
How foolish you are! You are so clever that you think your photography all originate from your feeble mind?Originally Posted by deadpoet
I do not ignore history. I accept that my photography and thinking is a result of the experiences of photographers in the past. I will never dissociate myself from the others. I learn at the feet of other teachers.
Do I have opinions? Or are my opinions a regurgitation from others? You are so damn arrogant that you think you can invent photography?
I do not. My opinions are formed from the rich heritage of those who are before me, and those who are still around. My opinions are the result of taking into consideration the experiences of thos who were before me.
Who I am and how successful I am is none of your bloody business.Originally Posted by deadpoet
I have never portrayed my role as a doctor in CS, and never will!
Prove this statement. Else you are are nothing more than a mouth without a brain.Originally Posted by deadpoet
No I do not hate you at all. You are really beyond the level of hate. Just like what you said of me in your next paragraph. The feeling is mutual.Originally Posted by deadpoet} A bad picture is cause for sore eyes, but a bad diagnostic kills. However, [B

have to admit that to this point, no post in the entire forum can be classified as a critique
To student and deadpoet:
Please refrain from personal attacks on each other, or infractions will be served on the both of you. Doesn't matter who started it. Please stop right now.
Where in that thread did you get the notion that he felt that his picture was great? See posts #115,128, 136, 170, 178, 264, 266, 273.
Basically in these various posts, norloke said that he wanted to express his ideas his way. In several posts he admitted to several problems he had.
