To all posting in Critique Corner

Please take note that any comments not related to or not contributing to the critique of the pictures will be removed without notice.

That includes oneliners like 'nice' ':thumbsup:' 'good' etc.

It's important to communicate effectively, so please refrain from writing in broken English or making too many spelling errors. Do a quick check on your sentences before making the post.

Attached below are some guides to making critique, taken from the Posting Guidelines thread.

Zaren said:
1. critiques will not merely be "crap shot!", "nice shot!" or :thumbsup:
2. the critique will include constructive comments/suggestions on how to improve the photo.
3. reasons will be given why the critique giver thinks the shot is good, or why the shot is weak/bad.
4. ppl who post photos for critique must not take offence at any negative comments/critique even if the comments are as brutal as simon cowell's.
5. unless otherwise stated, everyone giving a photo critique here is NOT a pro, NOT an expert, and does NOT have to show anyone their own portfolio to justify that they are worthy of critiquing photos. however, they are interested in learning how to critique better and more constructively, through practice.

some guidelines for those giving photo critiques;
- Framing/Composition (e.g. how appealing/interesting is the pic?)
- Exposure/Tones (e.g. over blown highlights)
- Color/WB
- sharpness
- Post-Process Workflow
- artistic merit

Reminder again to all that personal arguments will not be tolerated.

Off-topic posts and simplistic/nonsensical comments have increased recently as well, as such the strictness of moderation will be increased from now.

Any comment postings that do not contain specific critique directed at the work posted will be removed without notice. Please refer to above post on what to write about when making a critique. For those who have no idea what critique is about please refer to this thread http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=280307

We welcome suggestions on how to improve the photograph that are posted up in the Critique Corner but please do not GRADE any works regardless of how good they are or how bad they might be.

What we want are your Critiques only and also, your suggestions as to how else to improve a certain photograph and that is all.

Thank you.
