    well, maybe you can be milder, but critique should still be given.

    i maintain that if someone cannot take critique, then perhaps either his passion is not well-placed, i.e. he is doing photogrpahy for some reason other than photography itself; or it is non-existant.

    destructive criticism: this photo is ugly
    destructive criticism: you should use XXX brand dslr with YYYY lense instead

    not very useful comment: chio xmm
    not very useful comment: nice pic (but not saying why)
    not very useful comment: good try

    constructive criticism: this photo can be improved by ...
    constructive criticism: do you have other photo from the same (event/photoshoot/etc) - I want to understand why you select this one from the entire batch
    constructive criticism: have you done pp on this? can you show me the original (raw if possible)?

    I do agree, BUT I think there is hardly ever ANY reason to be harsh?
    Its photography not some safety-related matters, where if u underexpose, someone will hurt themselves or die...lol

    Well, maybe if you're the boss, and your PG junior not performing to standard, perhaps..But then, being harsh is still wrong.

    The worst type of criticism is being harsh without stating any reasons. Best example, "this picture sucks".

    harsh is always wrong.

    blunt is another thing. blunt means, you do not beat around the bush, you say what you think, without being personal.

    unfortunately, in clubsnap, and in reality, bluntness is often mixed up with harshness.
