At first I thought this forum was a great idea, but now I'm starting to see its just not working. The statement, "critique on finished products" is kind of contradictory because if you say, "oh I like this picture, but it is too dark for my taste", then the author is gonna go back and lighten it, and therefore it belongs in the other critique forum. Theres some kind of saying that an artist never finishes his work. And no ones ever gonna have the same opinion as another person, so when that person says something about a photograph, that other person can possibly see that point of view and decide to follow, thereby changing their work, and thereby declaring it not finished. I dont think I've ever seen anyone post a picture on this forum in the past with the title: "My Finished Product, Critique This Picture, But I'm Not Gonna Listen to You Because It's Finished and I Labeled It As Finished and I Can't Change It Because the Moderators Will Lock The Thread". If you want to keep this forum, then the rules need to be changed to: "This forum is for thorough praising of a member's finished product, no critique please because then the artist will make changes to the picture and we will have to redirect it to the appropriate forum"
