  • I am delighted that you feel that you can be frank. It really helps.
    Thank you
  • Dear Ann,

    Thank you for taking the criticism so well. The reason some of us lost faith in TE in years past was that it had become a place where 'dark green smilies' were traded between friends daily, regardless of the quality of the images posted, and often without a meaningful critique. Sadly, it's a practice that continues today. That's a shame because there are many here - perhaps not most but many - who want to learn and to improve their photography. I am certainly one of them. And I do not subscribe to the easy life of commenting on good photographs - my promise to myself to comment on all the new uploads - good and indifferent - of my favourite photographers is a discipline for me too!

    Best wishes
