    Okay guys lets stop all the ego stroking and get to the common ground if there is any.

    Define your idea of critique in ten words or less. No justifying it just define it. Maybe we can get a consensus on something.

    Note I did not say expert critique since I have no idea who is qualifed to give one.

    Constructive analysis of an image with an honest unbiased eye.

    Didn't see that- I read for enjoyment, not comprehension.

    Nope.

    Giving the photographer the right feedback he needs to improve.

    Pointing out anything that gets in the way of communication.

    I would have said "good" communication but that would have been 11. ;)

    "What do you like or dislike about my picture, and how can I improve it?"

    15 words, so sue me.

    Yes, "it is boring" would be a valid critique in my world.

    Both objective AND subjective criticisms would be ok...after all, this is both technique AND art. Or it's supposed to be.

    An evaluation of the impact of the photo based on technique and composition. More than 10 words but that is expert critique and I do have the background to be qualified to give one.
