Needs Improvement mcmtanyel 2013-01-23 8:51

I try to go through a few uncritiqued photos a day. When I saw this one, I wanted to pass over it because I have nothing to say. Then I took it as a challenge. So here is what I have to say:
If its message is "look, I saw a strange sign and here it is," then it conveys the message adequately. However, it does not stir or grasp the viewer. There are some nice textures and some patterns that could be employed to put some emotion into this picture, but they are there waiting to be called upon.

Default To mcmtanyel: Critique

Murat, if you legitimately had nothing to say, you likely should have left it at that. This is less a critique than an attack, and I would argue the shot has more 'to say' than many of your own snapshots. If you want to critique a photo, then do so without attempting to demonstrate your own superiority. Say what you think should be fixed or done differently, and use specifics. A critique like this helps no one, and comes off quite arrogant. Even if you had left off the first part of this, it would have been a more reasonable critique than what it was. But to post something like this, especially on someone's first photo on TE, seems a bit too harsh - we should be welcoming new photographers a bit more openly, don't you think?
