    The Pact

    "largely" well it either DOES or it DOES NOT. how can you be pedantic and yet vague when identifying your own rulebook as it suits. that's just silly. affirmation number 1 - the FIRST affirmation of your pact is entirely 100% applicable to that thread situation. you are correct. i didn't ask...

    The Pact

    Critique is given to help people become better photographers, artists, and occasionally business people. I will offer honest critique when it is asked for. I will critique the work, not the person. I will not hesitate to be direct. I will not hold back critique, even if feelings may be hurt. If...

    The Pact

    The Pact

    @Garbz quote: Summary comments along the lines of "I like it!" or "Great job!" or "It sucks!" do no one any good and will be avoided at all costs. well this is someone's opinion. and obviously shared by others. but i disagree that the positive words of encouragement 'do no good'. we can say...
