So there you are, Jenn; from my point of view, up on the crest of another depresion, what I believe you should take from this is as follows:

a. no 'art' group can ever agree on anything;

b. your work stands perfectly well on its own feet;

c. all you give me the impression of requiring is greater faith in your own vision, not anything I deduce from your work but from your posts in this slot.

Fly with it, girl - you know you can do it because you already are.

Me too: can't remember the last time a girl winked at me!

Listening to other people's reaction to your work can help you understand and develop your own vision, provided you don't take the comments as "truth."

That's exactly how I feel. I post my attempts at "art" here because I am interested in what others, many of whom I would regard as true artists, think of them. Sometimes I have been vaguely unhappy about an image without really knowing why and the comments I receive help me to understand why. I then stand a better chance of getting it right (or at least closer to right) next time. I don't necessarily agree with the comments people make, good or bad, but I'm still interested to hear them. A good example was Alain Briot's comments on a photo I posted here some time ago: see post 14 here (actually, the whole thread strikes me, on re-reading, as a good example of a helpful discussion).

I read reviews of concerts and TV programmes as well, if they're well-written and interesting. I don't necessarily agree with them either. Save for the extremes, there really isn't any "right" or "wrong" to a view. De gustibus non est disputandum is as true today as it was when originally noted.

I looked at the shot which prompted this discussion when it first appeared. It's not the type of shot which really interests me (I prefer the non-human animal). I liked it and mused on whether cropping off the left would do more than merely altering it but decided I'd just keep quiet. I'm rather glad I did.
