I think this is definitely not true from your post; I appreciate the comments people. You sure have a funny way to show it Jess. :)

But telling me to dodge and burn would be better, when that would be illegal? Hell, I could make the shot 10x's better looking had I had the chance to use some editting techniques, I think I know that already.
Or how about saying the subject I chose is odd/weird. Like come on people, open your friggin minds. The challenge is Backlighting. So the only thing which should be predetermined in any of the challenge photos is that it is backlit, other then that any subject to include in your composition is more then accepted.

frig, I am really getting annoyed right now.


Let's look at some more positive ways of thinking about this:

1) Sometimes people confuse the rules or are new and don't fully understand them yet. After the challenge, send people that comment in this manner a nice helpful PM to point out the rule set and why their observation/suggestion wouldn't have been possible. This not only helps them become incorporated into the site better and helps them not get DQd themselves at some point, but saves the embarrassment of being called out publicly.

2) When comments are left on a subjective level, you can either take it the way you did, or take it as a valuable lesson about DPC. People are going to like or dislike your work on a subjective level. Period. Use it as a way to open your own mind and see it as a suggestion that you didn't reach someone or, if you get a lot of comments of this nature, the masses as you'd hoped. It's great to be different, but thick skin is a good purchase if that's the path you choose.

Just a couple of thoughts. It's better for the blood pressure :)

haha I do, I was just venting :P

& Thanks K10DGuy, I really feel bad about making this a thread* topic, but I was pretty ticked when I woke up to some of those comments.
But you definately reminded that I got to stay positive. :)

I understand. :) I try to look at it as a learning experience. I ask myself what I can get from the comment even if I find it ridiculous at first glance. Listen to K, being positive is what it's all about. I got 6 comments on the first day and zippo since. Weird.

Scores seem to be rising since last night. The grumpy people from Thanksgiving day were just that, me thinks. eheh I guess some felt left out and took it out on the scores, who knows?
