I have criticized my recent uploads pointing out their weaknesses and then I heard from many of you that I should not complain.
I realized that our comments in TE community are overwhelmingly positive. We don't take well the negative comments. I think I can tell if my photo is good or bad by the type of response I receive. But it is not because we write directly to each other what is wrong but because worse photos are simply not commented on. Of course some people are more popular than others but if I consider my own photos, the author stays the same. So I am certain: we prefer not to comment on a photo at all than to write something negative.
I remember listening to people who were training animals. They said: negative reinforcement never works. Only positive. If you punish the animal it hates you, never listens to you and may even attack you. If you reward it, you may start a relationship and you can both learn from each other...
But how can we improve if we avoid talking about mistakes? I suppose one way to go around it is to criticize your own photos yourself :)

This is a view from a terrace near the Collegiale de Neuchatel towards Lake Neuchatel. The tower with the red clock is called Tour de Diesse, I have presented it from a different angle in my previous photo. As much as I love this view and this lovely tower, from this POV the shape of the tower is not pronounced as well as it could be. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough time to explore other POV but I would prefer the tower to be partially set against the sky to stand out of the crowd of roofs.
