so, if you choose to accept a critique someone gave does the thread die? my answer:so far i'm not sure, the thread may or may not die, but im guessing it dies. if you want the critiques to keep coming keep your mouth shut about accepting their advice for your photo and your thread will live on. can a digital representation of an organic work be passable as a finished product? and does it matter if a finished organic work (print)is in existance if the digital data (film scan) has already been obtained? i believe so, as my critique thread is now open again.
