  •   cores163 @fisheyedreams please don't take my criticism as a sign of frustration. Very happy to get a daily glimpse into your process. I just wish there would be more critique on Instagram and less petting on each other's backs. 2w
  •   dayzdandconfuzd Hate this image. Don't know why you posted it. @cores163 2w
  •   dayzdandconfuzd Sorry @cores163, although constructive criticism can be helpful to anyone wanting to improve their craft, I'm not sure I agree that IG is the place for that, unless the person requests it. Instagram after all isn't a classroom environment where you're paying to have someone more experienced critiquing your work, or a museum where work is being curated and then openly judged by all. If I don't care for an image, I just don't tap "like". If I like but don't love an image, I'll tap "like" but not comment. If I love an image, I tap "like" and leave a positive comment. In other words, I think the amount of likes and positive comments should be enough to give the photographer a good idea of whether the image resonates with the masses. If an image of mine gets a lukewarm response, I can safely assume that it's not that great of an image. But with that said, I guess anytime someone posts an image on line, they have to be open to the possibility that someone out there is going to give some negative feedback, because that's an inescapable reality of this wonderful phenomenon known as the world-wide web! 2w
  •   gbhill59 Very well said dazed&confused 2w
  •   fisheyedreams @cores163 Frustrating meaning you can sometimes not be happy with a photo of someone you follow. Even get shocked from the level of work. Criticism is quite difficult on this platform. It can go wrong in so many ways and probably people don't want to take that risk. I don't mind what you say at all. You are most welcome to criticize. But what @dayzdandconfuzd said is better in understanding the sub language of this community. (Likes and comments wise) . And I know why you both hate this image!!! Brides, marriage... 2w
  •   dayzdandconfuzd Arghhhh, you saw right through me! That scary thing called marriage!... 2w
  •   cores163 @dayzdandconfuzd I don't think you need any of the things you listed (money, traditional places, more experienced people) to make criticism work. Instagram is designed to create a very positive, fun and fast-paced atmosphere, so I see there are difficulties. But then there is so much more potential in this network and people use it as a serious outlet for art, which I just find great and brave. And this can be accompanied by giving more thoughtful and risk-taking feedback I believe. Thanks for the discussion and thanks for not taking my first comment the wrong way @fisheyedreams :) there is this one wedding pic of Sune Jonsson which is surprisingly one of my fav pics. 2w
