    Maybe I should have used irony tags in my earlier posting. I think "nice" is a pretty good response to "this is my first shot, C&C please" or "I took this random snapshot, I am a newbie, haha, please give feedback!". I don't think there are many people writing "nice" as a response to serious requests.

    "Nice" isn't such a positive comment. It may just take a while to sink in.

    But saying nice and not meaning it, saying nice when the picture is horrible .... well, are we advocating hyprocracy?

    I dunno man, I always think that if you have out up a pic in the forum, you should be ready to take the flak for it, and to get some honest and sincere criticism should be valued over some superficial flattery.

    However, I think some people just want people to put them up on the pedestal and get worshipped.

    No, very very few. The same thing goes to newbirds and a lot of people. Why be so harsh when you can speak kindly? No point, right? Do you talk like that when you are outside socializing? Then why speak so harshly? Is it because of an imbalanced mind due to stress where you have to behave politely while at work and you think you can blow your heart's out on the net because nobody knows nobody on the Internet?

    Yes, your point is valid. I respect your view. I view it from another point. But I always say this to some CSer friends: if CS were Singapore, there would be riots and fights everyday.

    Anyway, the world in CS is like that: if a newbie criticizes an old bird's work, he is considered rude, no matter how polite he is. Then if an old bird criticizes a newbie's work, the newbie is expected to take it, no matter how impolite the senior is. Well, we can only find this in CS. And I never see this type of thread in photo.net and other famous photography sites. Weird place it is, but I do have a lot of nice friends from CS, which I think is a relief.
    Just saw this thread...

    Anyway... just to highlight my view.

    well, if its rude, its rude, dun mix honesty with rudeness.

    I just don't get it some just go around threads without using their most honest and sincere view of the picture to offer the most constructive comment. Just see pics and say nice, its just so fake. No doubt i can also try to do that, but whats the worth of doing so to the threadstarter or people viewing? consider the flawed image as norm? or probably, hmm, since he can say nice, something must be wrong with my monitor... better say nice before others find out my monitor not calibrated?

    Well, i'm not trying to say we can't go around sprinkling sugar and offer encouragement, but we have to also make sure its the right kind of comment, if you yourself don't feel the image is nice, then dun say its nice... just either move on, or if you think you wanna sprinkle some sugar, just say, effort seen, try harder. giving a nice comment on a badly taken foto just reflect how bad the person who wrote it is.

    (ok, i bluntly honest... sorry for this bad post)

    from a TS point of view,

    All comments are welcomed in my threads, even "nice" ones.

    Frankly, the number of comments is usually a gauge of how well received my photos are.

    Why do people post photos on CS? I post my travel photos mainly to see if they are "nice" or not

    Seriously, if I show the photos to my friends/ colleagues, they sure say nice out of politeness. In CS is different, nobody owes me anything. If not nice, sure will not say nice. why waste time posting in a thread which doesn't mean anything to you.

    hehehe...then I would think if a photo is that bad and yet ..any particular person who still say it is nice I would say he has poor taste or judgement...and doing so in public just confirms to everyone that you are with poor taste or judgement or just a condescending jerkoff hahahahah....
