Thing is with giving artists unsolicited critique on their work is you have no idea the motivation behind their doing it and no idea what their desired outcome is.

Whatever you think they could have done to improve on it is often going to be wrong, even if you believe it's correct. Rarely are views and motivations on art going to align, and by giving unsolicited advice on how it could be done "better" you're just straight up being a dick.

If you're going to give me *technical* critique, not just aesthetic, then understand that you are automatically wrong anyway because my camera settings are a clusterfuck and I'm winging it. You'd be better off telling me to throw the camera into a pond :blobshrug:

@sophia Not only are people doing this dicks, they're also showing how little knowledge they have.

@sophia If that would be a solution, there would be more cameras than ducks in the ponds. Terrible idea ;) Put the critiques in the pond instead.

@sophia Hmmm i have different opinions on feedback but then again I always ask for it when I post something so this still kind of applies. ^^

@betalars yeah, there is a huge difference between critique that's asked for and this. If you want feedback then it's a good thing.

@sophia I imagined such a thing and thus just critiqued the pictures to myself. I will tell you this much: I really like many of them.
