how come you never scold them?
1. Cos of different standards. Maybe that person commenting it is a super beginner. Maybe the one posting it is one also. So to them, it's really cool?
2. Even if it doesn't look good, I think many can't be bothered to say so directly. Cos it's not easy to guide the newbies to take better pics. It's not easy to be a good teacher. Would anyone be bothered to go from A-Z what is wrong with a pic? I doubt so.
If you simply type YOUR PIC SUX! you are no different from the one who says GOOD
So it's easier to do this than . For the latter, the natural reaction will be, YOU THINK YOU CAN SHOOT BETTER? Or PLEASE BE MORE SPECIFIC WHY YOU SAY MY PIC NO GOOD. Not many will be bothered.
If u personally don't like the photo, u say out, got chance to kena slam by ppl.
Its almost like... How to say? Try to stand in the middle of the road thing.
Just to say something. It is just an encouragement and a pat on the shoulder. Giving tips or not is not on our mind. When I feel strongly about something or when I come across the same type of pic somewhere and know that I can provide some help, then I would comment. I can understand the pros and the old birds. They stress on frankness and picking out the errors so that we can learn. We appreciate that deeply. But we, as half-past-six shooters (like what Deadpoet said: neither here nor there), usually avoid giving deep comments, because we are not that level yet and are not confident whether the tips or perspectives we give are correct.
