Hi roentarre. You have a semi-valid point about the "rules". But please be open minded if / when you get input like "I think this would be more dynamic with the horizon off center". The "rules" can and should be broken. But often times, following the "rules" (at least loosely) makes for a stronger image. So I agree 'regurgitating' the rules just for the sake of criticism has no merit. But 'regurgitating' them to improve the image (at least in the opinion of the reviewer) absolutely has merit.

Hi Julie. As a (likely) well known over commenter (at least on the DPR Pentax Challenge threads), I guess I'll join in too, mostly echoing your thoughts.

I like to think I offer at least "1-liners" when I comment at all. Someone call me on if I don't. Anyway this is very good advice. The biggest thing limiting my commentary is the time it takes... It's hard and time consuming if you really put the mental energy into this process that it deserves.

A specific 'critique wanted' sub area is a great idea IMO. But again, the time consideration would limit how much I would particpate. Regardless, it's high risk giving criticism where no was asked for. Some of my efforts on DPR have met with a resounding thud and I think I'm careful to be constructive in expressing my opinions. :(

Oooo... I know where you live on pbase. Better watch out what you ask for. :lol:
