Default Okay - Question on eyesight

I am beginning to wonder if my slipping eyesight is what causes me problems when I edit photos. And... I wonder, too, how reliable my critiques may be and if it's fair to someone to have a .. well, person critiquing them with an unclear understanding of what they're looking at. Now, y'all that does NOT mean I don't mean every good word I have to say when I critique shots. I DO know what I like and what I think is good stuff. There just might be waaaay more good shots out there if I could see better... Anyone??

Dear Shelly…
According to the best tradition on TE, it is NOT NECESSARY to look at the photographs, while writing the critiques for them.
As long as you are literate enough (with basic mathematical skills), and you can read the 'critiques given' and able to count the amount of critiques given that day by the author of such photo - you don't have to look at the photo at all !!!
And I found that feature genuinely useful and extremely practical.…

Sure…You suppose to know your way around…
i.e: How to avoid the guys with critiques disabled, or the ones that for some reason are giving their comments instead of the critiques (Quite obviously - they know nothn' about photography!).
Or: How to avoid a photography expert who insist on giving honest critiques to the photos instead of praising them !!!
(That's a solid 'No-No' kind of behavior of very few rotten apples on the site ! Giving the critiques instead of praises (???). We do not post our pictures to be told what's wrong with them! We post them to stun the world with our freshly discovered talent for photography!!!
What's wrong with that ?).

No eye glasses are needed to evaluate the photo…
Just some free time and a solid education about the visual arts.
Thanks Almighty - we ALL have these…

Trust me, dear
It's been well tested by humble yours

You can't be more on the spot. Thank's George for this perfect analyze not only of the site but also in one sweep clear the eyes of our Shelly who seems to be in a phase of wondering a lot of what goes on around her these days..

Simply refreshing....
