These CMI pictures can be results of bad photography, substandard modeling, or most likely the case, a combination of both.
The only way to change this is to give honest comments. If the pictures are bad, for whatever reason, the comments should reflect them, not sugar coating the problems, even if it's totally the fault of the subject.
yes, upz for that
being politically correct doesn't leave much room for honestly (and sometimes brutal) criticism
Perhaps this is where the crux of the issues lies: not 'XMMs' or 'GWCs' ( we don't have a right to stop them anyway) but the 'inaccurate' comments some of us may make.
Photogs don't want their photos to get slammed, they get attached to the models so the photogs don't want their models to get slammed either, and the models get offended easily. In the end, cannot slam anything. Everything must be positive.
Might as well take away the 'Submit Reply' button in the Portraits forum.
But seriously, maybe photographers should pay more attention to teeth, eyelashes, make-up etc.? Even Xiaxue does that to her photos and she's pretty dang good at it too. The photogs around here should hire her to make the CMI XMMs look pretty.
