Default Re: critques

If all you care about is amassing points then go ahead and 'snuggle up' to a select group of members. Your point count will sky rocket irrespective of what your image is like, but you will gain absolutely no knowledge or inspiration from the 'critiques' received.
On the other hand, if you actually do want genuine critiques keep on as you are doing. Look for images which catch your interest or attention and critique those. It will take time to get feedback, but the feedback you do get will be far more meaningful. It is certainly true that the more critiques you give the more you will receive. That isn't a case of 'you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours', rather an ever widening mutually supportive group.
If somebody critiques my work I will often look at theirs. If I see something I want to comment on I will do, but I certainly don't feel any under any obligation to do so.
