I have really grown from real, honest C&C. I appriciate it quite a bit. Does it hurt sometimes? YES! But it makes you better, and quick. My complaint is all the atta-boys going on. I post something and get alot of positive feedback and think "wow, I am getting awesome :lmao:". Then I look at other people's posts with very big flaws, (dare I say) even snap-shottish, which are also getting kudos without honest and helpful feedback. And comments like "it's out of focus, but thats no big deal". That IS a big deal. Or "just fix her eyes in photoshop". I dont believe you can ever really fix something like eyes...you know the window to the soul, in photoshop. Just get it right in camera, if you dont, you may be able to salvage it in ps, but it isnt the same as getting it right when you shoot it. Some pp is nessesary in modern photography, but pp and photography are not the same thing. I got alot from people who said to me, "that is so lame, get it right and here is how..." or even just telling me where I need work. But I feel like with all the atta-boys flying around, I cant squeeze in any honest C&C. So thats what bugs me.
