I just spent a long time reading a thread on luminouslandscape about the need to be honest in critique and it struck me that, as a group, landscape photographera are much more willing to accept and give honest critique without rancor than other groups. I read some actual critiques and, seemingly, people trade actual real opinion, often totally unsweetened by PC comments to soften the blows and people actually didn't seem to get their feelings hurt. On quick reflection, several possibilities spring to mind. The content is usually less personal, the group is more deliberate in their actions as they go about making images and thus is less emotional about the image or last, they are older as a group and just that much more mature. What do you think. If pressed, I will find and post the link.
